how would I mount them wrong?
You have to turn the screws CLOCKWISE....LOL. But I would check the position of the screws in the rings...the base may be twisted and are sitting on an angle and not flat and square......my only thought

May be a weaver rail, they are spec’ed thinner (I believe). Picatinny accessories may not fit a weaver, but weaver should fit picatinny. Don’t know why they would use weaver on anything modern...but what do I know?
Because weaver is a third of the cost!

They are the same size, the only difference is that the weaver slot is thinner than the Picatinny slot. Bravo 4 is correct.

Next question...… Which part is loose? the rings or is the base loose? the base screws might be bottoming out and the rail is loose.
Huh. Doing that That doesn't even line up




I dont drink. But ill humor you. Pics coming 🥱🥱
Coming to this conversation late; but it appears, from picture, that the 20MOA elevation is placed on top of the rail? Defective rail? Rail slots cut on bottom of rail? Mount that and you have '0" MOA rail; not a 20MOA rail.

I feel sorry for you pilgrims. You most likely have installed a 20 moa rail and using 30 millimeter diameter rings Not 30moa rings. Is your scope a 1" or 30 mm tube? If the rings won't tighten on the rail there is something wrong. Suggest you call Seekens for advise. Good luck.

why would that keep the ring from being tight on the rail, just the scope loose in rings

I am going through the same issue. Went to mount a scope on a Tuebor action, with one of their rails.

Vortex rings.

Will not tighten down. Measured the Tuebor rail and compared it to a NF rail on another gun. The Tuebor is .025 narrower.
WOW, that surprises me. Call them. He’s a great guy will fix it I’m sure.

If you are messing with guns you need calipers....Rail is too narrow for your rings. Speak to Christensens and they'll set you right.
Christensen arms did nothing. Their response was "buy another one off our site. If that one doesn't work then we will replace that one"
