Re: Picatinny Rail and Rings vs. Talley Lightweights or Similar

Hi Ryan, you have pretty much answered your own questions and covered the ins and outs.

These newer Talley rings are of a better design than the vertical split ring scope killers. But do keep in mind that they are thin ali, so you must not overtorque them as the threads will strip quite easily. When using ali, the material thickness should really be doubled. For example, double the screw depth (and screw length) to obtain more contact between the screw and ring- not more torque. But being that these are 'light weight', this has been omitted. Actually, I may as well throw out my copy of Machinery's handbook as it seems physics is just a thing of the past and metallurgy is now in the same realms as alchemy.

A rail is certainly versatile. Weaver style bases are not so flexible but still very useful.
