Loose Badgers?

Been reading several posts on Badger Ring/Base combo's coming loose after several shots, anyone else have a problem like this?

Re: Loose Badgers?

Toes,
Dammit, that must be how come I keep losing NXS scopes! Come to think of it, a bunch of guys at our range use Badgers and there are always scopes all over the ground [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Seriously, not a chance - ain't gonna happen.

Never heard of such a thing...I tighten/torque mine...whack them a few times to seat them and then verify tight with the torque wrench. Don't see how they'd come loose.

Re: Loose Badgers?

Badgers coming loose???? No way.

We could put Redfield or Leupold Dovetails on. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] In your wildest dream that is.

Kinda what I was thinkin' guys. Hey Ian, what took 'ya so long to respond? Some of the tactical types over on the 'Hide' are talking about problems they have had. And Ian, send me that address, like to find me some of them Nightforce scopes that are just lying around!

Re: Loose Badgers?

You can tell 'em I've got a couple sets of Dovetail rings I'll trade them for their Badgers, no screws to come loose on these sweet things either. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

PS. If there's more than a couple takers, I'll have more to trade too, just give me a chance to get to Wally World first. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Littletoes,
What every body said is right- no way in hell.
The problem over on the hide is being addressed. Kinda the the nut behind the rings... er... wheel. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Seriously, the owner-Marty Bordson stands 8' away all day long and I know his rings inside and out. If they are mounted according to Marty's specs not even Marines can break 'em!!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
