Default Re: Parker Hale and Scopes

Thanks for that Marcus..... beginning to look like some kind of standard or trend .
perhaps weaver got the formula wrong, perhaps sloppy QC, perhaps Parker Hale shaved a wee bit off the rear of the receiver and other providers never got the memo.

Paul, on my 1200 C i only had 1 problem in 15 years or so with loose scope mounts, and that could not be attributed to the Shim as both front and rear mounts shook loose.
we had been rattling around on a snow machine for about 50 miles or so following which i missed an easy shot at some Caribou on a small lake.....several times.

on the way home i noticed the scope rattling .

flushing the holes in the receiver and the threads on the screws followed by a moderate application of lock tite and it never happened again in spite of many more instances of some rigorous treatment.

I went on to take another dozen head of big game following that misadventure so the shim, while not the perfect solution, really did not cause any problems.
The experience of others of course may vary .

Have contacted a local Gunsmith regarding some shims

More as it comes
