    Detachable ring mounts

    I think I've asked this before, but anyway

    Do detachable mounts onto a weaver style base work & hold POI accuracy, are they any good ?
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Man, I guess it depends on the quality of base and ring.

    I had an EGW base with Warne QD rings and they were bang on with a small shift. Perfectly fine for normal hunting but you would want to check before going long..

    With my Warne 1 piece steel mount, and leupold QRW rings there's about 1/2 MOA shift after the scope is removed and replaced.
    The square cross bolt on the rings allow for a secure and repeatable mounting. Some of the weaver rings with a round cross bolt, cannot locate in such a repeatable way.

    I asked this question to several gunsmiths years ago and all said that Apel mounts are the only repeatable mounts. But Apel were too expensive for me.

    A few years back had a pair of Rem 700 LTRs in 308 and 223 with Warne steel picatinny rails the quick detach rings and were bang on 100% of the time out to 600m & 800m.
    Now have alloy EWG rail with Warne QD rings and have a slight shift in POI 1 MOA at most and not all the time? Maybe steel on alloy? Still good enough for bush hunting and to 300m. I do like the idea of steel on steel or stainless on stainless.

    I would sort of expect this to work better with a one piece mount than two piece, where it could be hard to get just the same tension on the scope each time eg if the rings had some torque in them like one of them stress free sits 0.1 degree clockwise of the other due to uneven side to side tightening or the front ring top screws are tighter at the from than back so the mount tilts forward when released from the rail, it would be all OK till you released them then they may not go back into the same spot on the rail.

    A lot of people do report good results taking off their scopes but it might depend on using gear designed for it. Also technique, tapping scope back onro a stop bar and which clipper you do up first etc etc.

    Will be interested to hear from someone who actually knows.

    ARMS mounts - and a true Pictinny rail

    We use them with our systems and clients swap between day and night scopes with ease and they hold zero

    they have a huge range of options
