Rem 700 Crooked base mounting holes
Could Remington possible drill straight base mount holes? I have 3 rem 700s and ALL of the screw holes are not straight. I have 20 EGW mounts and XTR rings on each. I took the rails and rifles to my gunsmith and they were mounted correctly by him. But when I mounted scope I ran out of R to L adjustment. I removed the scope and shot a laser down the center of the mounting holes and they are off L or R a 1/4 inch at the end on the barrel, depending on the rifle (This happened on all 3 rifles with 3 different scopes over about a years time). How do I fix this? my Gunsmith put a wedge on the inside of one of the rear rings and that seemed to work but this is driving me NUTS!!! COME ON Remington!!!!!
God made everyone right-handed, the truly gifted overcome it!
