Finally got around to mounting my new Burris 3x9x40 Fullfield Scope and the torx tool that came with the Bases stripped out when I was tigtening the bases to the Model 78 Remington and now I pulled out the couple of Torx's Screwdrivers I have and none fit these Signature Pos Align Rings Screws. Anyone know which size Torx these are? Would like to get the right one.
Thanks,
Newaygo1

I know this is not the answer you are looking for, but if you are stripping out the torx screws you are very likely over tightening them. You do not need to tighten them as tight as you can. Over tightening will cause a number of problems with the scope. They are tightened in inch pounds which is not very tight. I would look for a Wheeler torque wrench that also comes with bits that should fit your Signature rings. And this tread in rings and bases should help.

Did the heads strip? or the tool itself? the correct size should be a T-15
