I am kind of impressed by these;

http://www.dnzproducts.com/game-reaper-mounts

They are a true one piece mount with the rings incorporated. They are aluminum, but the ring screws are incredibly long so it is practically impossible to strip. I have a few of these on some rifles and every time I mount a scope fresh out of the box there is minimal adjustment when compared to a lazer bore sighter.

Cheever thanks for the link. I'll take a good look at them too. The screws can't be too long or they will interfere with the bolt and action. But thanks.

I mean the "ring" screws are very long. The "base" screws are of an appropriate length.

to properly attach the front ring without damaging the ring itself. that wrench runs about 14$. you can do it with a crescent wrench and some padding ut you risk ring damage.
Here's another alternative: I use a length of wood dowel. Leave it long as that makes it easier to line up the front ring with the centerline.

Put the dowel into the ring, screw down the upper half onto the dowel and you're away....lots of leverage, too.

For 30 mm rings, I use a length of 1" thin wall electrical conduit I had left over. Fits perfect.

Yes, I saw this in one of the video's. I suspect that leaving it long you can use the same dowel to align the two rings before placing your scope in the rings. Might avoid damage to the scope finish.

So once you get this zeroed in, put locktite on one side of the rear windage screws and use the other to remove the scope when needed.
That's correct.

Use a straight edge to confirm the dowel or other is actually straight. Saves time and effort taking rings on and off.

I haven't seen a mention of Warne QD rings so here goes. I have them on two mini 14s and really think Ruger should just sell them with the rifle. They aren't cheap but it is easy on and off and the levers allow you to tightened the same ever time by just pulling the lever back to where it was. I keep mine straight up so I won't forget.

I have looked at the QD rings and I do like them. I'll have fun when it is time to buy
