I have had my 30mm scopes mounted in Leupold QRW rings and bases for the past few years.  I have swapped scopes on several rifles several times with little to no POI shift.  I recently was doing a little testing of my new SS6X on my 300 ultra Sendero.  The scope was awesome, and tracked perfectly, BTW.
 
I went to put the Leupy MK4 back on the Sendero and spun the levers hand tight.  The front ring's lever just spun off the ring!  The bolt just came off.  It appears the bolts taper to a smaller diameter right where it goes into the ring.  Check out the pics!  I am considering replacing all of my QRWs.  For the time being, I robbed one off of the SS, and got the MK4 mounted up.
 
  What do you think?
 
 
Ouch

Could me a quality control defect, rather then a design fault. Maybe forward to Leupold for comments.

I'm sure they will replace no questions asked, however the question is, do you trust them now?

I don't think I do trust them anymore.
 

What about TPS rings?

 


 

Are the SWFA prices for two?

 

Are these reliable?

TPS makes some of the best gear affordable gear there is.  I know Cheap swears by their rings and likes them even more than badger rings if i recall correctly.  I like all there stuff as well and it is very well built.
