Can't the ring mounts simply be clamped down with enough tightness to hold? What about cranking on the screwdriver a little tighter?
I only tried this one time with 40 inch pounds of torque applied to the ringmounts,as I didn't want to scratch the receiver of My rifle, I did have a horrified buddy that observed my experiment go home and tighten his Lepold ringmounts so tight that he snapped one of the screw heads off, I don't know how much pressure he used but it must have been quite a lot. I think that my little experiment exposed the Leupold
Sako ringmount is an inferior system and I think it also exposed the inherent weakness of the Sako scope mounting system overall, If Sako wants an integral mounting system machined right into the receiver I think they could have taken a lesson from Ruger and designed a similar type bomb proof system then in my opinion they would have nearly a perfect rifle....................Hb
