Thread: Leupold PRW Fix

    Leupold PRW Fix

    Guys I have just broken the retaining screw in my Leupold PRW scope base. . . .If you look at the photo you will see what I mean . . .I don't much fancy 70 quid for a new set due to one broken screw, however it is stuck solid and I am unable to remove it.

    Do any of you have a fix for this or indeed a spare one lying around which I could buy off you ? ??

    Screws far to bloody flimsy... And loctite far to sticky.
    As you can see it's everyones fault but mine ...

    I did exactly this to my Leupold rings. I ended up buying the new set, so consequently have a spare. Mine are PRW weaver mounts for 30mm scope. If that's what you're looking for then I'm happy to sell my spare for say 35 posted.

    Email Leupold with your problem.
    I recently bought a new set of PRWs, and unthinkingly over tightened the lower claws and bent them a little. I emailed Leupold confessing my over enthusiasm, and asking to buy replacement claws. A short while later I was emailed back saying that entire lower assemblies were en route completely free of charge.
    Previously I had bought a second hand pair of QRWs that on receipt had slightly chewed cradle bolt heads and rusted spring inners for the lower claws. Again I emailed Leupold asking to buy replacements, but parts were sent gratis again.
    Big thumbs up for Leupold!
