I've recently traded for a Encore Pro Hunter that had aluminum rings and mounts so I'm replacing them with good steel ones. Question is, with this MZ do I need quick release scope rings to assist with cleaninng chores? I've not shot this rifle so I don't know what kind of an ordeal it is to clean one. Is it going to be very helpful to have the scope out of the way, or not really so important. I've had Leupold quick release mounts on my other MZ's and they really helped when doing the "hot soapy water" type cleaning. The QR rings and base setup is about twice the cost of the standard rings/bases, so that is another consideration. Your experienced opinions please.
