These are the standard by which other scope rings are built. They are available for the majority of scope sizes and required heights. Whatever you use your rifle for, be it hunting, plinking, or shooting matches, these scope rings will keep your optic from shifting. They're easy to install on picatinny scope bases. If you're looking for a way to keep the weight of your rifle down, but don't want to sacrifice strength, these are perfect.

MDT Premier Scope Rings are designed and manufactured to STANAG 4694 specification, also known as "NATO spec". This means the scope ring sits tight to the top of the scope base rail, with pressure being applied to the underside of the angled rail surfaces to maintain a solid interface. This design also allows mounting on out-of-spec rails:
By contrast, US MIL-STD-1913 spec mounts attach only to the angles sides of the rail, leaving a small gap between the top of the rail and the underside of the mount, and significantly reducing the amount of contact area between the mount and rail:
Testing performed by NATO has shown that the STANAG attachment method increases the robustness of the interface, leading to increased alignment repeatability. MDT Premier Scope rings can be mounted to scope base rails designed to both the STANAG and MIL-STD specifications.
