I received the Wheeler kit a couple days ago, and it got me to thinking about one other issue.

Once the rings are lapped, how do you treat the new raw surface?

In my case, using Talley rings, which are a "high strength aluminum alloy", it may not be a huge issue, but what about steel rings, which have had the finish removed and could be susceptible to rust???

I suppose you could take them to someone and have them powder coated, or another option is a light EVEN coat of a rust preventative paint like Killrust or similar. Not sure about the qualities of silicone, but maybe a coat of a silicone grease or similar might protect the bare steel.

Then again, you could get real flash and have the insides gold plated. I remember a few years back there was a kit available that was actually designed for car badges or tap handles etc that the home handyman could buy and use...it laid a couple of microns of gold on the surface. Gold doesn't rust.

I was thinking something along the lines of a cold blue:

I don't know if it's necessary but wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone had thoughts about it.

It's definitely an option HJ, but I'm not sure it will prevent rust on the steel though mate. For real rust prevention you need a coating that 'seals' the steel away from any moisture.

That's the way Rachel...keep Dad honest mate, and don't be afraid to give him advice when you think it is necessary mate. Wink Wink Very Happy Very Happy Cool

I have a them on some of my stuff. Once they're set they never move. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I have always installed the with the screws on differing sides, it seems to help with keeping everything lined up. Who knows, maybe I've already ruined a scope for use on a different rifle, but they work so far.
