Re: Leupold QRW\'s Broke, but....

I'm a little perplexed by this but, the new Sinclair catalog shows a pic of the Nightforce bases my brother was using BUT, they don't have the slot running lengthwise down them as his do, which is the only reason these failed in my opinion???? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

Thanks for the update Ian! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

That's pretty much why Marty at Badger won't make a QWR, the don't return to zero and they break!

Re: Leupold QRW\'s Broke, but....

Just an update on QRW/PRW lug failure. I have noticed that the latest lug is larger and stronger as Ian M has mentioned and the square lug will NOT fit all the way down into a rounded slot base. This mismatch may be the reason some have failed. So it would pay to match the ring recoil lug to the slot on the style of base you are using. I have used both QRWs and PRWs on everything including an Ultra with no problems. I do think the PRWs afix to the rail stronger than the QRWs.
Good Shooting,
