    Marks on scope tube from rings

    Hi All

    After removing my scope from the REM700 Sendero rifle to send it off for a muzzle brake, I noticed a small mark/dent from one of the rings. I have read allot of contrary comments all over the web and I am wondering what the locals think.

    scope is a Sightron 30mm tube, rings where Leupold QWR (30mm ) at the time, all tightened with a wheeler FAT WRENCH as per written torque specs. All sitting on a Warne 20MOA Rail

    The dent is only just notable with a thumb rub, faint wear marks on the ring edges.

    Should I be concerned about this?, is this normal? Thoughts and comments please

    Should not be an issue IMO but next time get someone to lap the rings. They will probably have a proud edge or may not be 100% concentric, or even the rail may be warped by a gnats cock.

    Actually no, your scope is fucked, but you are in luck. I know someone with a Sightron for sale
