Re: How many of you lap your scope rings?

+1 as phorwath

I never use to lap rings, then started buying NF and custom guns.
I have a lap bar so I always check when mounting the scope the first time.
I never undo the rings from the scope, and seldom take the scope off the base.

I'm sure there is more than one way to skin this cat! I can't prove that lapping as helped, but to see some rings so far out as been an eye opener. my NF rings just needed a little bit for full contact.

If your using NF base and rings I'd just ask NF and never think about it again. If you have a lap bar I'd check the rings the first time mounting them to the base. Also I think they have some rings just for switching scopes to different bases/guns. One piece rings? let us know what you find out.

Re: How many of you lap your scope rings?

Cam, NF does make a one piece (Unimount) that attaches to scope and rail. However it sits a little higher than the low rings and is a little spendy.

For now I will take the base and lower rings and mount them on both my Rem and S&W (Howa) and lay the scope in and eyeball it for fit. If I cant see any noticable uneveness then I'll go with it. Dont want to buy a lap kit if I dont have to.

Thanks for the replies.

Ya, I've noticed that anything NF is "a little spendy"
Thats why I don't have one of the unimounts. LOL That and I'm pretty much a one gun man, as in only shoot and playing with one custom gun at a time.
Looks like thier solution to one scope and different guns, and is cheaper than another scope!
What was the differnce between the rings vs unimount?

Good luck
Cam

Cam, The rings are $152 and the Uni-mount is $260 and it sits .40 inches higher than the rings ( I believe).

Well anyway, I wil probably report back on my findings although it might take a couple of months to get both rifles in action.
