Re: Heavier Leupold MK4 Ring Caps
I have had both kinds of MK4 rings, and like the older ones better. No major reason, just cosmetic.
I the old ones had a rough inner surface, and the new ones seem to have a series of very fine rings cut on the inside.
But I lap them both anyway, once they are mounted on the rifle-base combination, cuz the the action variations will distort the base, so I want the rings to be co-axial to the finished rifle.
Same with the Badgers, plus I have found that the badgers are a bit small in diameter, and the sharp edges will scrape the finish off a MK4 scope [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]( So I lap them puppies too!
I don't like the finish on the Badgers, it will come off in an ultrasonic cleaner [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img](
