Anyone know how long it takes to receive the sportsmatch rings of ordered from the ebay link? Never ordered anything from the UK and wanted to check.


My last set(s) took around a week from the UK...Oct 22 to Oct 28. Seller does an excellent job communicating. Tracking info is provided.

Thanks for the replies!

Ring screws (4mm thread diameter) – 30 in/lbs. Dovetail clamp screws with 4mm thread diameter – 42 in/lbs. Dovetail clamp screws with 5mm thread diameter – 66 in/lbs. Rail clamp on Picatinny / Weaver scope mounts - 40 in/lbs. Due to many variables these figures can only be used as a guide. In extreme cases some particularly heavy recoiling rifles may require higher levels of torque to be applied to the dovetail clamp screws only. To avoid damaging the screws on your scope mount please only use the allen key supplied or a suitable torque wrench.
