On a set of Leupold QRW 1" how do you get the top half of the rings over the scope tube without forcing them?

You don't, unfortunately.

 

We use wax paper to help them slide over and to help prevent ring marking the tube.

Da......Always forget search.... will put a note on my monitor.

By the way, could I get a Friday special on Leupold No. 4426 and a set silver QRW low rings?

Need a fit today for McMillan .308 scout rifle.

Plumber's Teflon works also. Easy to remove and leaves no haze on your scope..

Two very good ideas.... but I think I found a better way... I used a 2 mil freezer bag by cutting a strip twice as wide as the ring and it slipped right over the scope. Then I left the plastic under the ring until it was lined up with bottom half and started screws. Just pulled the plastic out walla.
