    Anyone have an opinion on these Burris XTR adjustable MOA rings?
    While hunting around looking for rings for a Sightron 60mm scope being fitted on an incoming picatinny RAW. They seem to get decent reviews. I have not seen them on an airgun yet.

    Nice box!
    Why not the standard Signature rings at 1/2 the cost?

I don’t think the standard rings come with the inserts…  but could be wrong.

    I had a set of the XTR’s like Dirte’s on an air rifle that I sold a few years ago and luv’d em!   I wish I never let them go….  live and learn.

    I have FX No Limits on my Wildcat and believe the Burris were as easy to adjust.  Self-centering, no ring marks, great product!  I’d buy them again.

I like how they center. This is one reason I have always liked BKL rings. I have never seen the Burris XTR rings in person.

I stand corrected…  I just looked at the Burris catalog, I had the Signature Rings with several inserts.

    I think that the normal Signature rings do not have the MOA adjustable inserts.

    I believe all the Signature rings have the Pos-Align Inserts.

    From what I understand the XTR rings can compensate for a rail that is not in line with the bore, but this would be unusual on a quality gun. Plus, you get the nice box.

It makes no sense to me to have a nice box for something that will never go back in it. It is kind of like the nice box that came with the earlier Hawke scopes. At least they wised up and gave us lens caps and cardboard box. I never will take my scope off to put in my nice box. Just take some money off the price and give me a ziplock bag.

    I agree. It seems to compromise the product and its pricing. I’ve been using the standard Signature rings for twenty years and they’re a great idea and a great product. It differs from the XTR in that it has one fixed dovetail claw and an integral clamping claw. This gives it a fixed lateral position that I prefer. I now use BKL rings as long as the scope can reach desired point of aim/impact. 
    But the XTRs look solid, and that box can probably hold a lot of fish hooks. :)

Through the extra parts in a plastic bag and put that in your gun parts drawer.  Then use the waterproof box for your cell phone the next time you go whitewater rafting. %^)

    I have the exact same rings on my .30cal HM1000X that has a Sightron SIII on it.  Great to have the extra MOA adjustment especially if you plan to shoot at 150yds+.

Wow! Even a picture of the RAW LRT. Do you feel that they are the right height for your RAW? This will be the same gun and scope that I would be using them with.

    My scope is the 8-32x56mm so I’ve probably could have gotten away with the medium rings (1.25in) vs the high’s (1.5in) that I bought, but since I have the adjustable cheek piece it really doesn’t bother me at all. Since your using a 60mm scope your probably going to have to stick with the high rings.

Thanks! I think you are right.
