I use the Millet angle-loc rings. They work for me.
The simplest choice, of course. You can make it complicated, Kiss.
True. The Burris Signature Zees have some unique advantages, but for economy, strength and availability, it's pretty tough to beat the BKL product.The simplest choice, of course. You can make it complicated, Kiss.
BkL mediums should work just fine, and they won't harm your scope, either. Thousands in use, that proves my point. I don't use the "ugly Burris Rings" well simply because they are ugly in my opinion. If I had a need, maybe, but I have never had a need and that's that. I have never bought any rings because of "looking good" or "bling factor". Kiss, simple and functional without any hype is all that's needed and of course no plastic inserts, 100% steel or Aluminum.OK,mediums or highs for a 40mm objective?
you're absolutely wrong about any other rings marking scopes. Would you like to make that statement directly to the manufacturer, stating their rings damage scopes, unless of course you have lapped them ? Would you also make the statement about aluminum and steel not doing the job. Maybe titanium or unobtanium would work. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UnobtainiumANY steel or aluminum ring without polymer inserts will mark your scope if they aren't lapped. To me - perhaps not to anyone else - that is "harming" the scope. It sure harms my pocketbook. In this case, BKL's are no worse than any other metal-on-metal ring - and certainly much better than Millets.
Tne Burris inserts are not "hype" - they are there because steel or aluminum simply won't do the job - not because the polymer is cheaper.
Burris rings are ugly and BKL's are not? Well, THAT explains a lot. By the way, leave off the last "S" in "K.I.S.S." when you address me. It doesn't apply.
So what companies have you brought this so called fact to? Evidently they don't think to highly of your opinions, not the facts, because no other company uses plastics in their scope rings and also I don't see any scope ring companies recommending that I lap before mounting my scope.Read Wikipedia for "facts"? Not likely. ANYONE can contribute to Wikipedia with "information". It is not edited or checked.
I have made that statement directly to ring manufacturers and will again at any time. Why would I hesitate when I believe it to be the truth? Lapping of rings is an established practice. I wouldn't THINK of using a set of "regular" rings without lapping them - unless I had a BSA scope, of course, and that is even less likely..
Aluminum or steel does not - and can not - do the job of the polymer insert in the Burris Signature ring system. This is a fact, not my opinion. By the same token, the polymer would not be able to do the job of the steel ring itself. Simple, if you just stop and think about it instead of daring me to do what I have already done.
