I like TPS rings cost around $100. Medium height should be ok.

Talley 1 piece lightweight rings will work great on a rig like that.

+1 for the DNZ game reaper. I like the fact that the base and rings are all one unit. Some do like that but I do. Less variables to eliminate.

Another vote for seekins. By the way not sure if newer Rugers have changed this but the rail on older ones had a gap where the R logo was, making one piece rings be off of the spacing and not fit. Just something to check if you go that route.
