Re: scope mount screw broken off, whats the damage?

Well I called a smith this morning and was actually able to stop by this afternoon and 45 minutes later she was good to go. Apparently there was also an ez out broke off in the hole as well. It wasnt what him or I wanted to see, but he did manage to get it out without having to retap the threads. And for only $25, cant beat that. Now if only the wind will cooperate this weekend maybe I can get some rounds through it!

So after getting that screw out made it out to take a few shots today to get the scope dialed in. Shot 50gr Hornady Varmint express moly. Cant really complain so far and I dont think the coyotes will either!

Rifleman513, your 'smith works cheap. $25 for 45 minutes!? I've got more than enough work now, if I could/would work for that I'd never see the light of day! deerhunter 13, you're gonna' have to explain to me what "pheasant tail rings" are. I've never had problems with Leupold Dual Dovetails, that were properly reamed, securing a scope to an UM.
