Hi,
Are these Weaver style rings? What do I need to install a Burris Fullfield 3-9x40mm to the rifle. Scope now fitted is a Weaver K6-1 and I believe the old rings will work but I want to change then to matte black to match new scope. Rifle is a Winchester model 70.

Looks like an old set of Weavers to me. Go buy a new set of Weaver rings, problem solved. I prefer their Grand Slam series over the cheaper 'fish hook' style with the screws on one side only. If you want to get fancy, replace the bases too.

Should be a pretty wide variety of options for a Model 70 out there too, if you feel like switching it out to a completely different style of base/rings.....but I've had no issues with the Weavers really.....

So, is there a difference in getting weaver rings or Burris weaver type rings?

Spend a minute or two here: http://www.midwayusa.com/content/HowToGuides/ring_base_guide.htm

As for ring height, if you're happy with the old scope as it sits now, take your old rings in and get the same size for the new 40mm.
