Re: NF 8-32x56 IOR 1913 base Baer rings
One thing I forgot to add was that the IOR base doesn't seem to be quite as well machined as the Les Baer rings.
The finish looks as if it has been sendblasted, a slightly grainy surface.
The thing that had me a little worried was how hard it was to slip the rings onto it.
I had to rap them all the way with a plastic hammer, they just wouldn't slide. I hope that means that they are going to hold together better.
At this stage I have only lock tited the screws in the reciever and base, as I can see no reason to change the base or move it.
I want to do some shooting first, then I will lock tite the ring screws as well, but I want to make sure that it is all square and plumb first.
I have put the scope on fairly loose, not having a torque wrench that means gently tightneing each screw as tight as they will go without getting the idea of forcing any of the screws too much.
I'll be taking a torqx screwdriver to the range just in case ;-)
