Every so often, someone logs on and poses a question on this site, regarding problems they are having getting the scope to line up properly on a rifle, without running out of windage or elevation adjustment. Often the problem is an out-of-spec rifle receiver, poorly drilled holes, etc.
Sometimes a suppressed rifle shooting low-velocity ammo requires extreme elevation bias in the base/ring setup.
The old Leupold/Redfield Windage-adjustable bases/ rings were used for years but offerered no elevation correction, only windage.
We often advocate one-piece Picatinny bases with or without forward cants. Burris Signature rings with eccentric inserts are often helpful and available for various base types but they do have a few limitations.
Shimming bases is often warranted, but difficult to explain how to do correctly.
Lately I've noticed the B-Square adjustable Rings, http://swfa.com/B-Square-InterLock-Adjustable-Rings-P1471.aspx advertised as having both windage and elevation adjustability. They look reasonably well-made, and B-Square has a good reputation.
Does anybody here use these rings?
Unless I hear otherwise, I'm going to get a set and try them out. They are available in 3/8 and 11 mm. dovetails for various airguns and rimfire rifles with grooved recievers, as well as the common Weaver type with the cross-blade recoil lug.
I sure would like a few of you guys to take a hard look at these and tell me what you think. Click around the B-Square page on SWFA's site and check out the various models.
I'm thinking they may be a great solution to a lot of shooters' mounting problems...
