I did. It is even stamped by the manufacture "wby mk v". But for whatever reason it was made wrong. My guess if I exchanged it the new one would have been the same way. It don't matter now anyway cause I already fixed it and I think it looks good. By the work I did I even achieved more thread contact by the rear mount screws. That always bothers me when they don't reach clear through. Now the tips are just flush on the inside of the receiver bore which that in its self makes me feel better.

Exactly. Even if I had indexed it in on the mill and used a boring bar or some such cutter it would still need bedded to be perfect.

Only thing is you and we and they didnt learn the cause of the situation! It may have been machine wrong; It may have just been mis marked

We'll never know~~

The only thing that matters is they screwed up. The only question that remains is if they will make it right.

Not after you messed with it! Had you sent it back Im sure they would have found out the root of the problem and made it right.....

Yep, 9 of 10 times, you go to cutting or modifying something to make it fit, the mfg isn't gonna warranty it.

Re: Rings and bases for $100

The rate my luck has been going lately plus the report of poor customer service posted earlier in the thread and no one rebuking it made my not really feel like even trying to send it back. I wasn't waiting another month if I could help it. Also I suspect it is rather uncommon for someone to put that particular rail on a mark v so they may not even know they have a problem. In the event that were the case it would take even longer for the situation to be corrected. I had to tools and know how to fix it so I did. At the same time however, if they don't at least do something to make it right I may never buy another of their products which is unfortunate because I was hoping to put that mount on other guns. I'm just glad I didn't pay the extra and go through the extra wait time to get the thing in a different finish I wanted.
