    Is there a reason to choose a monolithic base over separate rings other than ease of alignment?

    Thanks,

    I prefer the rail single rail system for a few reasons. I would have to think about the bedding of a two piece combo. I guess a straight edge could be used across both rings. Maybe even at their parting line with the top cap off. But for sure it would be a more in depth process, and cre needs to be taken to assure the bore of the two rings stay in alignment.

    I recently bedded the rail on a rebarreled rifle and it's looking like I might have to remove it to take care of some clearance issues between the forward end of the rail and the scope. I didnt use any release agents it looks like I'll have to apply some heat to break it loose. My question is if I heat it up to get it off will the bedding still be ok to reuse or will the heat and removal process damage the bedding and have to be redone.
    Thanks

    I would sand the rail back down to metal with 60 grit and start over. A little bit of heat should make it come right off the action.

    Before you use heat, Give her a tap with a plastic hammer or something. If it pops off the action clean and 100% you are good to reinstall. If not do as Ryan suggested. A little Acetone helps clean up too.

    Ya I agree with what Jeff said. In my head I was thinking of re-glueing the rail to the action.

    Thanks for the info, new rings are due on Monday. I'll try and tap the rail and see if it pops off. I'm not sure there will be interference yet. Actually the first one I have done but my rail had .004 gap front to back.
