I have a Remmy 700 w/a Burris XTR II 4-20x50 mounted w/ Talley Tactical 34mm rings & 20moa rail. I haven't handled the gun in about 2 months. Last night I pulled it out of the safe & damn scope was in an odd location. When I tilted the gun the scope slid thru the rings! The scope is sliding thru the rings like they were never tightened. I torqued them to Burris' specs (I believe 22 in/lb) w/a Wheeler Fat Wrench. What could have happened?

Contacted Talley via email & they responded quickly. They want to assess the rings & screws so they're sending me a new set w/a return label. I checked the screws w/torque wrench set @ ~22 in/lbs & they turn relatively easy. I can only assume the screws stretched???

Maybe your torque wrench is off?

I use blue loc-tite on my rings. Helps to avoid issues like this.

No, they are supposed to be pointing down at the quote from myself...JG's responding to "I used blue loctite on all screws/bolts" with "well then, gunsafe gremlins."

And that must be the case. Those little bastards will pee on guns making them rust, rattle 'em around so they get dinged up stocks, and all manner of meanness. I've always suspected it, but this is the first time I've heard of them actually using tools.
