  I have some delrin reducers from Brownells that are used to reduce 30mm rings to 1". I tried them in some TPS 30mm rings and a Leupold scope. The problem is that I tighten the rings down and the scope can still slip within the rings quite easily. The reducers are just to slick and they won't stay put. Am I forgetting something? Do I need to use locktite or what? Thanks for any help.

All scopes and rings do not have the same o.d. and i.d.
As clugy as it sounds put a wrap or two of friction tape (not electrical tape) around the scope.
Unless you're shootin a 505 gibbs, this should solve the problem.
OR you could trim the top and bottom edges of the inserts so they can crush tighter.
Delrin is really a poor choice for a ring's too slippery.
