Hi, when I bought an AP 155 (6.1") scope earlier this year, I bought some non-AP rings from my seller. I subequently got AP rings, and don't need these. I do not know who made the rings. They are in fine mechanical condition, but do show finish wear from use. They are felt lined. They are drilled and tapped on both top and bottom, presumably to mount to a mounting plate. The person I bought them from said he had mounted them on a Losmandy dovetail plate. I have never used them, but it looks like that is what you would need to do to complete the mounting process. They are very sturdy and completely functional. They fit my AP 155 well, so I assume that they would fit similarly sized scopes. One interesting and nice feature is that they have a counter weight on a sliding rail on each side of the rings to balance the scope. Take a look at the photo to see what I mean. As noted, I will pay for shipping in the CONUS. Thanks for looking at them. Best, Mark
