Time for something different, but useful just the same. Mac used these Leapers UTG 30mm Quick-Detach scope mounts when testing the RWS Diana 350 Magnum rifle, and he fell in love with them. He told me that he would definitely recommend them to anyone. Let’s see what he has to say about them.

Leapers UTG Quick-Detach rings are made to install and remove rapidly.

These are two-piece rings that fit onto Weaver and Picatinny scope bases. But these are rings with a difference. Each ring has a tensioning lever that snugs the ring down to the base in one quick, easy movement instead of tightening several screws. And why is that so important, you ask? Because it allows you to switch the rings, and therefore the scope that’s in them, from airgun to airgun in a matter of less than a minute. Boy, do I wish I had owned 10n sets of them back when I was doing heavy airgun testing! Heck, I guess that day hasn’t passed yet. read more
