Has anyone any experience with this type base. Its a one piece for the 10/22 with a dove tail front and adjustable rear. So far it has performed rock solid. I centered the reticle on the scope for both windage and elevation, mounted the base and set the front dovetail ring in place.
I laid the scope in the front ring and attached the ring top snugged up the screws and checked it with the bore sighter and needed to rotate the ring just a bit. I took the scope off and tweeked the ring a little and repeated the drill and it appeared to be right on for windage and a little high for elevation.
I took the scope back off and placed the rear rings on the base between the base clamps screws then put a 1" alignment bar in the lower halves then fixed the front upper snugging up the screws which seems to bring the rear ring where it need to be and tightened up the adjustment screws. I then put on the upper rig half and locked the screws rechecking with the bore sighter.
It seems like a lot of fiddlin around but when I put it on the bench and shot the only adjust I had to make was elevation. Windage was perfectly on. Ive never used these type of rings and mounts before but Im sure sold. I shot about 500 rounds and never made another adjustment.
I will probably take the scope off to lap the rings a little but I dont really think I need to do that. Has anyone used adjustable bases? And whats left to adjust.

No I haven't seen adjustable base for the 10/22. Do you have the Model #?

Its been a while. How ya doin?
In Brownells #57
Base
Leupold STD R10/22
526322620 49994

Rings
26mm Med Gloss STD
526000044 49920

I did the bolt release thing last night, slick as a whistle! Should have a 2 lb trigger kit here in a day or so.

I will probably will be scratchin my gourd for a while until Im comfortable with the base and ring set up. Everything seems good but its a somewhat strange approach in my opinion.

I suppose a call to Leupold might be in order.

Another question a little different topic. Glass Bedding....the 10/22... or floating the barrel. Have you ever considered not using the barrel band up front?

Yes I did it to one of my 10/22's. I removed the barrel band, free floated the barrel, trigger job, and did a quick bed job to compete in the std class last year. Whole thing took me 30 min. It shot a bunch better.

I'm also going to do it to my newly re-aquired pre-ban folder when I get a chance.
