    I'm trying to see what the interest would be for these type of rings....
    I guess it should of been more of a poll than post.

    Duel Dovetail are the most troble free of all rings ( In my
    opionion ) if they are well made .

    And once they are installed there are no moving parts to
    loosen up.

    In the old days scopes only had about 10 MOA's of windage
    so adjustable windage bases were nessary.

    Now most good quality scopes have 40 MOA of windage ajustment so Duel dovetail and rail type mounts are
    ok.

    I have had trouble with the cap screw's breaking or coming
    lose and the clamp screw's on rail type losening up so
    by going to duel dovetail this potential problem is solved.
    especially on big bores with no muzzle break's

    Locktight all scope base screws and you should not have any
    problems.

    Just my two cents /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Most of the long range shooters I think prefer a tapered base of 20 MOA or more and that is normaly a Picatiny rail type base..........Will a Dual Dove Tails accomplish this?

    Yes,
    I use dual dovetail bases with Burris Signature rings on them. With a 30mm tube I get 20 moa of "taper" and with a 1" scope tube you can get up to 40 moa in 5 moa increments without having to buy a whole new base. Signature rings don't need lapped and will never mark or dent a scope.
