Anyone running Seekins rings on an EGW rail? I wonder if the lug on the rings gets enough contact with the EGW rail since the lug is in the middle and the EGW rail has not much middle.

Does the lug not go full width across the rail? I don't use those particular brand of rings, but every other brand I have goes across the entire top of the rail. And since I haven't heard any bad press against either brand about this I doubt it will be a problem. After all, several manufactures use an open middle design on their rails.

I run Seekins on a Badger rail. ZERO problems. Though I haven't done so, I wouldn't think there are problems there.

If you do run into any issues, it wouldn't be because of a Seekins part. They are fanatical about tolerances.

Glad to hear it's working. I could not tell from pictures if the lug on the ring would give full contact out to the edges of the rail or not.

I might be wrong on this.  But I believe if you get a EGW "HD" mount they have the lug all the way across.  It is their older/earlier/cheaper models that does not.

Good catch. 

Once you go with Seekins, you won't want nothing else.

Unless I missed it, they don't make the HD for an A-Bolt WSSM. The standard EGW model is the only pic. rail I know of for the A-Bolt WSSM action. The odd-ball action is how I got into this. Did I mention it was LH? It's even LH.

Just looking at some pics of my old 223 wssm.  I had a EGW rail with only the lugs on the edges and I used TPS and Seekins rings on it and it was just fine.

Cool. I would go with TPS, but they're on backorder everywhere. I hear I can get the Seekins from SWFA if I hurry up and order. There I go.

That's why I got off the TPS band wagon years ago. I love their rings, but the unbelievably long wait times, were just too hard to swallow.

Same here.  Now it is Seekins, Talley, and Warne for me.

Well, shoot. It appears the Seekins rings may not bear fully on the EGW light rail. The lug goes all the way on one side, but not the other. Close enough, though, I think.  Anyhow, here's some quick pics I took for future reference. (Yes, my tablet camera stinks.)

On mine, it bears so close to fully, that I consider the tiny part it doesn't to be inconsequential. Better pics would help folks more, though, for sure.
