I was just wondering what most of you guys think of these rings? I have had a bad experience with a set of Zee rings, I could not get them to fit on my Shotgun cantilever base no matter what I did. It seems like they were made way undersized and no amount of prying to make the ring base wider would get it to fit on my shotgun. I think I will have to go with a set of Leupold Ringmounts or PRWs. At least these kind of rings will fit and then you just tighten them to the base. The Zee rings may seem like a good idea "no moving parts" but I myself am not too fond of them.

Who makes the base you have? There are a few combinations we have found out around here through trial and error that just wont work together. Even though on paper they seem perfect. Once you try mounting them they don't match up. For instance: Leupold PRW rings wont work on the  M1A/M14 mount by Springfield. They will go on it, but it just doesn't sit down enough to get a good bite on the base. I guess the screw driver technique of prying them apart didn't work? I hope you don't have the same results with the PRW rings that is occurring on the Springfield mount. The Zee rings are really nice rings once they work.

I am guessing Remington makes the base for their shotgun. It is a cantilever scope mount that comes attached to the barrel from the factory. The Burris Zee Rings will not fit no matter what I do.  I prefer the rings that can be tightened to the weaver style bases myself.

Try a set of Warne Maxima rings... Try the Leupold PRW or QRW Rings... If the base is cut to the proper specs, they will work like a charm.

I was able to mount a set of Burris Zee Rings on my Remington 870 Cantilever Deer Barrel. There was a lot of friction in the process, but I was able to slide the rings over the cantilever even with the scope attached.

What ever ring you choose, it should slip on with out any problem or friction. The use of a QD system would allow you to just pop it on or pop it off from the top. Quality will make you much happier.

Ringmaster,

 

Agree with you on this, but no other ring manufacturer made rings lower than Burris that would work for this application. Even with the lowest rings I could find along with retrofitting a monte carlo stock on the 870, the scope was too high for my satisfaction. I don't like the cantilever on the Remington deer barrel- too high above the receiver for a good cheek weld. I've been spoiled by the perfect cheek weld on my 7600 and now will settle for no less.

Ringmaster,

 

Agree with you on the dimension issue, but when I purchased the Zee rings I wasn't anticipating any problems. And I was able to mount the scope on the cantilever, albeit with a little difficulty. Once it's mounted, there is no reason to remove the scope at any time. That's the purpose of a cantilevered barrel- you remove the entire barrel, not the scope, when you want to switch back to iron sights. The cantilevered barrel can only be used with a scope. There is no front sight on the barrel. You have to switch to another barrel if you want to use iron sights.
