I have recently purchased by mail order a set of Leupold QR base and rings. An annoying problem is that upon arrival I noticed that their ring heights differ from the fixed mount system. I think that this is because pillar screws are not required with the QR system. So a medium ring height in the QR system is about equivalent to a Low height in the normal fixed system. The heigh ring in QR will be equivalent to a Medium in the normal system etc. So mail order buyers, beware. I ordered as per my fixed ring setup and found all the rings to low.

The information on this site does not correspond with my rings. My base and 1inch QR rings only measure 11mm and not 16 mm as per the website.

The QR rings do not have the windage fixing screws and are therefore just that much lower. I have meaured both the normal and the QR. They are not standard.
