As if it is any of your business:
First, I did call SWFA and advised them the question. This was my first step as I desired mount the scope by next week… and desired an immediate order over the phone.
Second, they said they would be back to me within a few hours (1-2), as the representative had never heard of this peculiarity with Leupold scopes and rings, but they desired to be sure (i.e. ultra rings in one brand are not always = the same height in another brand, so 1” may not be 1”) before he answered me.
Third, until they get back with me the representative told me to post it in the forum (w/the title as given) as someone there may already know the answer. But instead of a REAL answer, apparently, all you knew was how to be sarcastic.
Fourth, SWFA never called me back and never posted in the forum. Apparently, they do not know the answer, or ....
Fifth, I would rather purchase from people that take the time to know the answers, respond to questions, and are not sarcastic.
357MAG the majority people posting here are looking for REAL information. They are looking for REAL answers. If you don't know - no one is forcing you to answer. If you do know and have the clout behind you to back it up there is no need to be sarcastic.
