    Prize Donor:

    Murphy Precision

    We are a small, family run manufacturer of the world's finest Stainless Steel and Titanium Picatinny style scope bases. Our product line currently includes straight and tapered bases for over 30 different models, with more being added every week. We also manufacture ultra strong, lightweight Titanium and stainless steel scope rings in 1 inch, 30mm, and 34mm diameters.

    Scope Bases
    • 100% Made in USA, on our state of the art CNC machining center, to exacting tolerances.
    • Machined from 304 Stainless Steel, or 6AL4V Grade 5 Titanium barstock.
    • Meets MIL-STD-1913 for Picatinny accessory rails.
    • Both Stainless Steel and Titanium models offered in bead blasted silver, or black, baked polymer finishes.
    • Available in tapers of 0, 10, and 20 Minutes of Angle (MOA).
    • Additional tapers or features available upon request.

    Scope Rings
    • Ring bodies and caps are cut in matched pairs using state of the art Wire EDM technology.
    • This ensures diameter tolerances of .0005", and parallelism between scope tube and base mounting surfaces of better than .0001" per inch.
    • If your application demands the highest performance scope mounting system, look no further than Murphy Precision.

    Why Titanium?

    Yes, Titanium is cool, but there really are many reasons you should consider scope bases or rings made from this amazing alloy.

    Physical Properties:
    • Approximately three times stronger than 6061 Aircraft aluminum.
    • 45% lighter than carbon steel, while being just as strong.
    • Incredibly corrosion resistant. Titanium is routinely used for seawater applications where stainless steels have failed.
    • Titanium has a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, so point of impact shifts will not occur due to scope base growth under varying temperature conditions. (Severe problem with aluminum bases)

    Practical Benefits:

    Our titanium scope bases weigh on average 50% of what our stainless steel scope bases weigh. If you are building a target or benchrest rifle where weight classes are an issue, one of our titanium bases can save you as much as 4 oz. That is 4 oz. of larger scope, or 4 oz. of heavier barrel or receiver than your competitors.

    They would make a great addition to that custom riffle for sure. Got to love American made products and support the people that make them.

    Yeah glogin - too bad about the US Shipping only. Unfortunately US export law doesn't allow firearms and weapons related stuff to be shipped out of the US.

    Getting that stuff out of the US requires going through an exporting process.

    That Titanium would look real nice on top of my brushed stainless steel barrel with a black composite stock.

    I'm looking at a light weight for my next build; McM Edge or similar stock, X-Treme Ti action, and these Murphy Ti mounts would be just the thing to complete the package.
    Anyone have any experience with their products?

    They can, but it isn't necessary, or recommended. Our rings profiles are cut all at once in pairs on a Wire EDM machine, so the mounting surfaces are almost perfectly parallel. If you are getting uneven contact, odds are your base isn't quite straight, and lapping will only ruin the rings to make them match that warped base. Much better to take the time to bed or shim the base to get it perfectly straight. Then any quality ring will work great without lapping.
