just wondering whats the best way to put bases on your rifle? i've heard about putting a thin layer of oil or even car wax paste underneath them... i know to loc-tite the screws but what else? whats everyones favourite method?


Cheers NZ

We usually degrease them prior to installation and don't put anything underneath them.  We never use loc tite unless a gun has shook the screws loose first (hardly ever happens).  Lapping the rings and using quality rings and bases is most important.
