Re: Picatinny Rail By Norman E. Johnson

There is a research project in Redmond WA that gets tested occasionally in Picatinny Arsenal in NJ and so some gear gets packed up and shipped.

There is a rifle scope involved, a Burris 8x32x44 that sits on top of the gear to be tested.
It is mounted with a Weaver rail

OK I'm confused. For years I used Picatinny and Weaver style interchangeably, because Weaver will fit Picatinny. lol did the testing hit a little snag? Slang terms bring slang parts.
