Ring Issue

(to the tune of the Chitty Chitty Bang Band title song)



Bang Bang!
shooty shooty
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang.
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang.
Shooty Bang Bang Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Bang Bang Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Bang Bang Shooty Shooty Bang Bang


Oh you Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Now what to do
High Low, either way I go
I still can’t see the iron sights
But, no,
there taint no
other rings like
near, and fro,

Peep, through,
with em what you do, is use either scope OR sights
But I can't see over or under
With the rings all locked down tight
But I can't see over or under
With the rings all locked down tight
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Shooty Shooty Bang Bang
Cuz, with
The cheapy rings here
at least I see without spending too much
and, now
I can say without fear
That I'm glad I didn't buy the primo stuff

Maybe, I
will get return-to-zero and they will be my hero
Shooty Bang Bang
Quick Release
yes sirree
but I hear they don't do as advertised
cuz Marketing is a Lie
Shooty Bang Bang
Yes Marketing's a lie





Seriously, has anyone ever used quick release scope mounts, removed a scope and put it back on and been confident it was where you wanted it, all zeroed up? I mean without spending $4000 for the privelege. But the scope rail on the Garand is a Weaver type, and the tightening screw that mount the ring to rail goes right across the rail and even if it was JUST that cross bolt, and no ring body at all, I still can't see the fore sight. With no rings at all, I am fine. So if there was a true quick release ring that worked. I need to investigate this Leopold type. Maybe cimbined with something like this. Anyone ever use their scope like that? Taking it on and off without having to resight your zero?

I've had really good luck with the Leopold QR rings on my 700. I have a 2x7 leopold sighted in with my "short range" ammo, and the 4x12 with my "long range" stuff. Change ammo, change scopes and go.
