By Frank Hertel from USA on 2008-10-13 12:11:03Things I liked:Easy to install and rugged construction
Things I would have changed:Torque numbers, for the tightening of the bolts, would ge good to have.
What others should know:When used on a Diana Model 48 and a Leapers 3-9x50 AO Mil-Dot Scope with R/G (1" tube) --- Use the RUGGED! ---UTG MNT-DN460 Weaver Rail. It will make your Diana 48 capable of accepting Weaver Rings. The Techs at Pyramid can help and assure you that you get the right combination. I followed their suggestion and am glad I did!

By Anonymous from USA on 2012-01-09 19:44:00Things I liked:at least they look nice
Things I would have changed:The see-thru feature is useless, you can only see the sights if you left the scope off the rings, the front objective block the viewing tunnel so it defeats the purpose of having see-thru rings.
What others should know:These rings are cheaply made and not the best quality as the first set of rings damaged my scope's finish. They were machined out of round so that when I torqued the screws to the factory recommended 15in/lb with my torque wrench, they gouged off the finish on the right side of the scope (on both the front and back ring locations). I sent these back and asked PA for a refund but they sent me another set instead, so you can imagine how upset I am that not only will I have lost $8.50 to send back the damaged scope and rings, I'll have to risk damaging the new replacement scope again with these crappy rings. The replacement rings are almost as bad as the first ones, I didn't torque them to the recommended 15in/lb because I didn't want to risk distorting the rings and damaging the finish again. So I torqued it to 10in/lb and the damn scope keeps creeping back in the rings and it's rotating due to the sever recoil and twisting of my Ruger Air Magnum. I tried to torque the horizontal Weaver rail screws to the recommended 35in/lb and it bent the crap out of the screw on one of the rings, but the other ring screw is fine at that torque, so one screw was definitely not properly heat treated. Mind you, I didn't use a ft/lb wrench divided by 12, I used a dedicated in/lb wrench so the torque I set was very exact. These rings are absolutely useless and I definitely would not use the recommended factory torque settings as you'll probably damage your scope or the rings. Better yet, just spend a bit more and buy better quality rings instead. I wish PA would have refunded my money (and covered the return shipping) so I could have bought better mount instead, now I'm stuck with these useless pieces of junk as I'm not going to spend more money sending these back again. These rings are not worth the money I paid, and I wish I could have given these a ZERO stars if it was possible.
