A high quality steel alternative is the S&K. I use both S&K's and Talley's with complete satisfaction.

Thanks for the Dremel tip. Do you use anything special to clean off the lapping compound? I usually wipe with a paper towel then go over them with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Seems to take a while to get them cleaned up.

I have never had to lap them and Melvin doesn't lap them either when he sends them with his nula rifles,

I am wandering if some of the problems people are having with scratches and dent maybe due to action screw holes not in line with each other in the action

I've never lapped any other rings I've used before. Here are some pics I sent to Talley today. These are not great resolution but I think you can see the "banding" on the tube and for sure can see the marks left fore and aft on each side of the tube. The ring caps were torqued to between 15 and 20 inch/lbs with a Wheeler Engineering FAT that I believe is functioning properly. Their alignment was checked with the Wheeler alignment bars - not that there is anyway to adjust the alignment. Gene if there were alignment problems I would think that the marks on the scope tube would not be uniform, in other words marks on aft left and fore right only, not on both sides fore and aft.

I did check the rings for sharp edges and burs - found nothing remarkable. Certainly did not see any edge that needed to be eased.

Perhaps the scope tube is a bit big? Its just as likely as the rings being too small. I have yet to have an issue with Talleys causing damage.

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.

Talleys look good and keep you rifle shooting where you are pointing it. I don't use anything else

Bravo
