Thread: Warne QD scope mounts marking scope

    Warne QD scope mounts marking scope

    Hi all, just bought a new set of warne QD 30mm scope mounts for my new duralyt scope. Mounted the rings using the method outlined by warne ie torque the lower bolts to 25 inch/lbs then finally make small movements to position scope. Once done the torque top bolts to same torque settings. I have even bought the dedicated torgue wrench to make sure i got it right! (sad I know but beer and internet shopping is a bad thing!!!)
    Imagine horror when found that one of the mounts had marked the paint on the top of the scope where it joins together. Now have new scope with 2 marks on the top of it where these mounts have left a mark.

    Has anyone else had this issue with the warne scope rings ?

    Thanks

    Aaron

    i personally will only buy two piece mounts with a horizontal join for this reason
    they are well made but i find the design fundamentally flawed

    email them

    The issue I have is that I found it a bugger to get the crosshairs level with the vertical mounts. Why anyone thought it would be a good idea to make them this way is beyond me. I will be changing mine very soon to mounts with a horizontal clamp.
    Best Regards,
    Adrian.

    Did not have this issue with my Warne QD's and they have had a few scopes in them, will you notice the mark when it's mounted ?

    Yep, they did the same to my scope, I was never happy with them and changed them in the end to Leupold, no problems since then.
    Cheers

    Sadly not all scope tubes are of the same size diameter. Often one can find that they are not even parallel being larger one end than the other. I wonder how many actually measure their scopes tube along it's length?

    Although I have never used Warne rings I detest the vertically split rings. As already mentioned they are a PITA to get the scope just right . Yes I have tried a couple of makes with the vertical split and simply detest them.

    Scopes nowadays all seem to be painted rather than anodised and this paint marks much easier. It seems to me just another cost saving idea yet the cost saving does not seem to have been passed on to the customer!

    Another thing to check of course when scope mounting is that the holes for the bases are actually in line. Despite the much vaunted use of CNC machinery this still seems to be an issue on occasions. If the bases are not in perfect alignment then scope tube marking will be inevitable.

    I don't understand this issue with vertically split rings? I have Talley mounts and they were no problem at all to get the scope aligned? Can't speak from experience on the warne ones, but I don't particularly like their stuff anyway, always seems over priced and way too chunky for my liking.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I don't understand why they are such a PITA either but compared to the more usual horizontally splint rings the ones I have tried and those still fitted to rifles that are vertically split have proved far more hassle to get the scope correctly aligned.

    ​I have to agree that a lot of modern mounts look like blocks of metal added as an after thought.
