Re: Leupold Quick Release
I don't know about the A Bolt , but on over a dozen Rem. Model 700s , I compared Leupold One Piece versus Two Piece Bases with Leupold Rings . I used the Brownells Scope Pointers which look like big pointy Pencils . One fits in each Ring and you can tell how the Mounts Line Up . NONE of the 2 Piece Bases aligned . I'm talking many , many , mils out . Sure , if you shim the bases or have the equipment to machine them , you can align them . Or you can use the Burris Rings with plastic inserts . All of the Leupold One Piece Bases aligned both horizontally and vertically , and with my eyes I use a good grade magnifying glass . So all my Model 700s wear a one piece base : I don't like torquing expensive scopes . It's hard to change , but I might try the Burris rings inthe future.
