Just got these in. Curious if anyone on the Fire had any insight with these and whether lapping them is advisable?

I’m hoping they’re as reliable as the DD mounts they’ll replace.

Have not tried them but have been curious about them myself. They are affordably priced. What Optic do you plan to use?

Sightron Big Sky 4-16x42. Rifle is off to Shaen getting a Rock #2 spun on in 6.5CM throated for 147s.

Pretty stoked to get it back and mount everything up.

Not a fan. Lapping is a function of many things including ring and base precision, receiver screw hole trueness, etc. I don’t lap anymore. I prefer the small weight compromise going with a good rail and quality rings. Talley, IME, is pretty low rent in quality and precision. I’ve owned many. Seekins, NF, and Badger are my preferred. However, if low round count and use, Talleys will get it done.

I agree to some extent, if it were mine I would use a good quality rail with Burris signature zee rings..........If the OP has already purchased the Talley's I would absolutely lap them.

I have been running the same ring on a Christensen Mesa 300 PRC for about a year. Didn't lap them, no issues so far. Scope is a vx5 3-15
