I was just going to post the same thing. I was looking for a scope rail for an Anschutz rifle and was pointed toward a DIP rail. The problam was that the rail uses set screw to lock it down on the receiver and I didn't want to damage the finish of the receiver. I call their tech support and told him of my issue and I mentioned the nylon tipped set screws and he told me that it will only last about 20-30 shots before they start to loosen. He said to use the regular set screws with a piece of #8 shot between the screw and the receiver. Its worth a shot and CHEAP!
