    Thanks for that...apprecitae it.

    I sourced some socket head (Allen head) screws of the correct size. We'll see how they fit! :)

    Let everyone know how they look and work. Lots of interest I would think.

    Got the screws. The original fillister headed screws head diameter is .220 and these socket head screws head diameter is .233 so they are not a direct fit into the ring tops.

    I'll chuck them in the lathe and then hit 'em with some cold blue.

    Yes if you buy new Optilock tapered dovetail bases they point 4 feet to the left at 100y. It was at least a foot beyond the most extreme point of windage adjustment. If they are older taper dovetail bases (with Allen head screws not Torx), I did not have the problem. Anyone who disagrees can buy my box of Optilock junk.

    The issue is the bases not the rings.

    on a related note, Redfield SDT bases can be found as new old stock and they work great.
