Talking Leupold scope rings !


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have lost my little Leupold ring wrench ! Can't find it anywhere ! You know, the one that tightens the upper half of the ring to the lower half ! If any of you has a spare I would gladly send you US funds for it , assuming it is reasonably priced !

Thanks one and all !

Go Tarheels !

George

Nice link. Takes you right to a Leupold spoting scope. I don't have a Leupold tool for the ring but I do know what you're talking about. If you have a pair of channel locks you can twist the ring top in without damage if you wrap it with a towel or two thin pieces of wood. Obviously this isn't the most convienent way to do it if you install scopes every day but for the occassional mounting job it will work and not leave any marks on the rings.

If you are talking about the screws that hold the top half of the ring to the bottom, it's just a common Allan wrench. The newer rings may use a torx driver .... either is avalible at any hardware or auto parts store.

+1. I never use the supplied wrench, I simply use a torx set I have at home instead.

Moved your post to the Trading Post as you're wanting and not selling/trading.

Good luck.

I have about 8 of them lying around, of the torx variety. If you need one I can be persuaded to send you one, or like above they can be acquired at any auto part store. They make a handy little pack that is similar to a smitty pack. Very useful to have around house. Being the generous person that I am, if you can not afford one for whatever reason, I will send you one of those I have around the house. just ask. I believe they are size T15 maybe someone else can chime in to verify that size.

I think the OP is looking for the tool that twists the bottom half of the ring into the Leupold base.

the one that tightens the upper half of the ring to the lower half of the ring??? I don't have the one that twists the lower half of the ring into the base. I guess I am misreading what he asked. but that is the tool that tightens the upper half of the ring to the lower half of the ring.

Ring Wrench

I think this is what he's looking for. I don't think you misunderstood, I think he stated it wrong. I think he's looking for the tool to attach the lower ring to the base.

That tool was over designed to look cool and cost more money. A 12" piece of wood dowel will turn your ring into the mount with ease.

In the FWIW category, they sell a 15 mm torx wrench like the one shown above at Stihl chainsaw dealers.

I'm guessing after about a week the OP found what he was looking for and is probably shooting his rifle.

Yeah - this has turned into a general comment thread instead of a simple "wanted".

Thread locked.
