Is there a method of tightening down scopes and rings? Mine come loose and I'm afraid that I will damage the scope. What are your guy's methods? I snug mine down just a tad on the tight side.
I did the same thing and it made a mess. Try teflon tape instead, it worked for me.I did the same DV - I did put some electrical tape on my rings as per an article I read on Sniper's Hide, I probably wouldn't do that again, I guess it was supposed to help protect the scope's finish but it ends up making a mess if you have to move the scope ever.
Scott I have an inch pound torque wrench but it is a bigger automotive one and I do not have a vice. I have a small one that would work but I dot think it is accurate at all. Purple Loctite huh? I will give that a try.Inch pound torque wrench and purple loctite.
Why blue and what's the difference? TIACould be a quality issue - short of stripping screws some really cheap hardware will always come loose, I guess the tolerances in the threading are to blame.
Aside from that you could always use Blue Loctite (not the red stuff) to help keep them snug.
