Are they Leupold QRW or PRW?

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.


Due to years of degraded public discourse, we are separate ideological countries, speaking different languages, the lines between us down. We reason differently; draw upon non-intersecting data sets, and access different mythological systems.

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
