    Re: Laping scope rings

    Don't know how, no lapping set-up , or no time to lap rings?
    Worried about misalignment?
    Don't want any mounting marks on your scope, etc ...?

    This is why IMHO and for the money Burris Signature Zee rings are hard to beat. Checkout the video ...

    Scopes - rings by Burris Optics

    Good luck!

    I use seekins precision and love them. For what it's worth, Mike Resignio (TacOps) uses the Mark 4 Leupold Rings/Bases if that tells you anything. I'm sure he laps either way, but his rifles shoot lights out......

    Has any one ever had a scope slip in Signature rings??? The slick plastic concerns me on heavy recoiling guns, other than that I like them.

    I have them on .300Win Mag and .338 Win Mag, what heavy recoiling gun do you have? If your scope tube/base set up allows you to, you can add additional rings for added security or piece of mind if need be similar to these APS beauts (not mine ... from Kirby's website)

    Re: Laping scope rings

    I had reservations about slipping as well...I'm shooting 300Rum and 338. Edge for my big guys. I wouldn't be concerned as much with the lesser chamberings but the Egw warne setup has worked so why change now? I'd go badger but its just not in the budget...

    Re: Laping scope rings

    I own a lapping bar.
    When I need to mount a scope and have the needed rings I will not mount the scope without lapping the rings.
    If I need to purchase rings Burris Signature are my first choice.
    I have concerns about the scope slipping in the Signature rings but have never had any issues
