Re: Question about Lapping Seekins Scope Rings
I've got two sets of Seekins rings.
One is a 1" set on a Seekins rail on a Rem 700 300 Rum. I used the sandpaper wrapped around the receiver and then lightly worked the rail forward and backwork over the sandpaper to about 50% 'scuffed' up, to provide a partial custom fit between the two surfaces. Clean all threads and parts and then used a Loctite Product (can't recall the name at the moment) to fill up remaining void spaces between rail and receiver and then torqued it down. This setup required quite a bit of lapping to get the rings true.
The other set is a 30mm set on a BAT HRPIC. The indicators indicated zero lapping needed.
Little difference there between the factory and custom receivers...
A word on lapping kits. Some come with the two pieces of round stock with the pointed cone shaped ends that tell you if you have gotten the rings lapped completely true to each other or not. Other kits do not some with these, from what I've seen in the past. I don't see what the point of goin down the road to lap scope rings is unless you have an accurate, precise way to determine when you have lapped the rings true to each other.
Hope this helps.
