     I really do need to mount a decent scope ( Tammy’s Aeon 30mm ) on the gen II HM1000x  and have never had weaver or picatinny rings before, always really like the BKL rings/mounts because the seem to align perfectly and hold even on a springer – naturally not needed here – . Looking at UTG 30mm rings on PA  if the pictures are correct it seems the “UTG 30mm Pro Airgun QD Rings” and the “30mm Quick-Detach Rings” are made differently with the “pro” model looking as if it might be more secure/aligned ?
     Anyone using them?
    Any other first hand recommendations on something decent for a set of 30mm picatinny rings?  I would like to be able to remove the scope but it isn’t necessary and naturally I don’t want to spend what a set of good Ernst Apel rings would cost but if the UTG is wasting money I can spend more.

    TIA

    John I use these on my .25 HM1000x with Aeon 8-32×50 and Falcon 5.5-25×50 and they are the perfect height to just clear the mag: http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/UTG_Max_Strength_30mm_Rings_Medium_Weaver_Picatinny/4921

    I have had bad experience with UTG rings, loosing zero when bumping the rifle even a little bit. Ever since I have put Sportsmatch on 3 of my 4 airguns. I want to upgrade scope before I put sportsmatch on my fourth rifle as well. Never had any problems with zero ever since. IMO if you have put in the money for such expensive gun and scope, you need to put in the money for a decent pair of rings.

    I have them on my AEON. No issues.

    I have had no problems either so far. I am however using these for testing purposes for the short term. I have them on two scopes so I can swap them at will until I decide which one will live on it for good. I have a set of Warne Maxima rings for it awaiting my decision. They are sintered steel and super strong and are of the self centering design like the BKL’s. The QD UTG’s just make it easy to swap for now without spending a lot. But so far they are working fine.  Here is a photo with the Warne rings on my Falcon 5.5-25x50IR ffp.

    And one of my Primary Arms 4-14x44ffp as well. Very nice rings!

    Thank you all.  Spoiled by BKL. And man thanks for the pictures, that helps “my” mind so much. Looking at pictures online ( and some drawings or renderings  and such) some rings looks TOO cheap. I did look at the sportsmatchj and in .30 there’s “looks” as bad as it gets with what looks like a stamped piece of metal for the lip the comes off/tightens.
     As I just NEED something to start shooting at 100 I did go with some UTG rings but will be looking for something a bit more substantial in the future.  The Warne do look a little better made?

     Thanks for the help.

    Hi John. The Warne are some of the very best you can get. They are not airgun rings. They are for any calibre firearms. That’s the nice thing about Picatinny rails, they open up the whole world of tactical mounts to us.

     Thanks all. I ended up with ( for now) the UTG RQ2W3154  medium quick detach 30mm rings.  Actually not too bad for $18.00 delivered but I will be looking for something a bit better , maybe with a square bolt to fit the picatinny rail a bit better. But at least the 40x is mounted and ready.
