Will check into those sticks. Thanks for the heads up!
quality" as opposed to "cheap" I assume, that thread locking products are not required. That suggestion makes no sense to me in that mount screws, taps used to tap treads in the gun are all in accordance with the standards set fourth in the "Machinery's Handbook". Also, the mounts I have have through holes and as such have no bearing on the screws and their mating holes in the gun. Therefore, why would the cost of a scope mount be a factor (assuming proper torque) in the screws coming loose or not. Someone is going to have to explain it to me...be specific please.
Because cheap rings typically can't be torqued as high as quality rings. Has nothing to do with the taps or the threads but the material in which they are cut. Which is usually the difference between aluminum and steel. Higher quality usually equals better tolerances, which means less wiggle room. The less need for glue to keep things from shaking loose. Some of the cheap aluminum rings I used in the past certainly needed all the help they could get.
Is that the road we're going down???
most of my high quality mounts for optics came with screws that already had been dipped in some sort of blue stuff that dried which I assume to be thread locking juice.
If I have to remove and reinstall I always reapply blue and I always use a torque wrench
Always !!!! And On anything I ever Mounted on a bow.
