    Scope mounting system suggestions

    Anyone got a reliable scope mounting system whereby I can take a Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40 scope on and off my 336SS thereby using iron sites when I choose and putting scope back on when I feel like it and still have it hold zero? Seems like a lot to ask, I know, but was hoping some of you had some experience trying this out. I hunt Maine where most shots are under 100 yards. But my aging eyes make think I should have the ability to scope the gun at will when longer shots might be viable. Thanks in advance for any input.
    Cheers

    Thanks gents. I'm ordering the RPP clover-sight and Rhino rail today. Going to go with those Warne QD rings too. Setup is exactly what I was looking for. I knew I could count on you guys for an excellent suggestion.

    Anytime you remove and remount a scope, quick detach or not, you will have to reset zero. Should only need 1 shot though.

    Very few here. Most detest them that I've seen.

    See-thru rings are about the weakest mounting system you can buy. They're always aluminum and so high you risk tearing them off with only a moderate bump, or short drop. Field of view is limited for irons. Height of the scope requires an unnatural head position.

    But maybe that's just me...
