What size scope rings are people using for the thingverse A300 mk2 A 300 3d build? Mine is in the process of being built and thought I would shop around for options.

I got 1 inch low profile scope rings from aliexpress.

Even when fully campled there is still some room between the ring and scope, so I will wrap something around the scope to fill the gap.

Those are certainly cheap enough! Have you mounted a flashlight on your build and if so how did you accomplish it?

I’m not sure if I will add the flashlight, but I will add the 2 inch picatinny rail on the side. The flashlight mounts on that rail.

Also from aliexpress:

Here you can see the picatinny rail on a blaster:

It is the best way to mount the flashlight. The Surefire X300 is designed to attach to a rail.

Are you going to just drill the plastic to mount the rail vs using a resin to mount it or a combination of both? I am unsure of how strong to expect the plastic of a 3D build to be

Just drill the plastic and use the screws is not strong enough unless you modify the 3D files and add holes (with thick enough walls) for the screws. I will use e6000 glue for the rail, but I will also drill holes for the screws because I want it to look like it is mounted using these.
