Are they Leupold QRW or PRW?

All my Warne rings are like these, quick release and permanent shown:

Wow, this thread is a blast from the past.

MM, they are indeed the QRW's as pictured up top. They currently hold a 2-7 Burris on riser blocks on my Bushy M4'gery.

I use a paper towel to get the majority off, then wrap a shop rag around the bottom of the ring and hit it with Brakleen. Also, prior to lapping, I'll roll up a small wad of paper towel, and stuff it in the screw recess to keep out the lapping compound.

I suppose the tube could be oversized. I don't have an instrument that can measure the diameter. Anyway, it's on its way to Minox for repair of a loose eyepiece. I could ask them to look at that too.
