    for instance

    1" ring
    can fit up to 42mm objective lens


    which one means the ring size and which one means the size rail it will fit on?

    1" means the tube of the scope needs to be 1" for those rings to fit.

    will fit 42mm obj means it will allow a scope with a 42mm obj to be mounted in it without it hitting the barrel.

    common scope ring sizes

    1" low,med high

    30mm low,med,high
