Manufacturer has faulty torque guidelines.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on May 24, 2013
The instructions say to tighten the mounting screws to "approximately 60-70 inch pounds". I used a torque screwdriver to install the screws, so i know i was not overtightening. While tightening the third screw, the head of the screw broke off. I had to undo the remaining screws to remove the mount and then unscrewed what was left of the broken screw. The excessive torque had deformed the screw holes in the mount. The screws won't even fit through holes now. I did some research and found that many people suggest about 20inch-pounds for mounting a scope rail with a #6-48 thread size. This was my first time using this type of mounting rail. I assumed that i could trust the manufacturers instructions! I'll contact opticsplanet and let them know about the problem. I have yet to determine if the rifle was damaged. Seems like a pretty big screwup in the instructions. Millet is going to get earfull!
Pros: price

Millett Picatinny Rail

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on December 19, 2011
I bought this to upgrade the cheap factory two piece base on my Savage short action. The base installed easily and the holes lined up perfectly. I decided to go with the Millett base due to the reasonable price. I did a fair share of online reading before making the switch to a one piece base. One of the biggest complaints I discovered is the reduced clearance for loading ammo. The base leaves a reasonable amount of room and I have not had a problem loading or unloading. I can not comment on the long term use of this product at this point.
Pros: Price
Cons: Made in China ...
Would recommend: Yes
