Allright guys, first off let me introduce myself, I have been reading this forum for a couple months now, didn't have much to say since i was mainly absorbing a ton of great information.

Anyway, i recently purchased a Thompson Center Omega in the 50 cal. I also picked up a relativly cheap Nikon scope for it off eBay, now i am looking to get some camo rings for it if at all possible, does anyone know where I might be able to locate some on the internet? i have done some basic searches but i havent come up with much. Any help will be appreciated.

I currently have some black rings on the gun, and it really dosent bother me, however, being this is one of my new favorite "toys" (bad choice of word for a gun) i really would like to make it look better.....

Thanks

szokr1, Welcome to the site.

Depending on how much you want to spend and how much time you have, I'd like to offer an alternative.
Immersion coating is a process where a thin film that is floated on water then items are dipped into the coating. If you've ever seen the Easter egg decorating kits where colored oils were floated on water then the egg dipped in it to produce a marbalized look. Immersion coating works much the same way. Paterns can range from camo to wood grain to carbon fiber looks. The following links are to K & D Gunsmithing in Georgia.

For $25 plus S&H they can apply one of 13 camo paterns to your existing rings. This allows you to choose any rings you'd like instead of having to settle for a set of camo rings that don't exactly suit your needs/taste.
Hope this information helps,
Rupe

Szokr1,

Welcome to the M-S website! Be careful this site is very addicting!

Your profile indicates "White Lake, MI", would that be WL Twp. in Oakland County?

In answer to your question I've always found the people at Williams up in Davison to quite helpful. Another thought might be to check Bass Pro Shop in Auburn Hills but I've never looked for that kind of stuff there.
