So I bought my first set of Burris Signature Zee rings after reading many positive comments. I installed them per the directions, but I noticed that after I leveled the scope crosshairs and then got them all bolted up tight that the inserts touch on one side, but have a gap on the other side. Is this normal? Or should there be a small gap on both sides? I'm just wondering if I should go back and redo this. Or if it's fine to leave it? I had a heck of a time getting this scope level as my level didn't fit on the base under it well at all. So I'm hoping it's fine, but wanted to double check. I'm not sure how to get it any different either though.

You can see how they are touching here.


You can see the gap on this side.

Looks perfect to me.  This is exactly how mine look.  There should be a small gap between one or both sides to make sure that you are able to tighten the rings down snug.  If there wasn't any kind of gap, the two inserts could possibly come together before the rings are tightened down enough.

As long as there's a gap between the inserts on one side or the other, you're good to go.  I like to try to make the gap even on both sides for appearance reasons, but it's not important from a functional standpoint.

Glad to hear that. I had a heck of a time getting this scope level, and once I finally did get it level and snugged it up, I noticed the inserts look like this. I don't care too much about appearance, I'm just glad to hear I don't need to take it apart again.
