Punched rings are rings that are punched out of a sheet of metal. They are solid rings with no joint. These rings are very strong and are very good for making armor. A couple of years ago you could purchase punched rings from TRL. However, when TRL started making their own scales that more or less came to an end. From what I understand the machine that they once used for making the punched rings is now used for making scales. So, unless TRL finds themselves very well stocked on all their scales it is highly unlikely they will be making any punched rings.
