    I don't care for that style either but I've always been able to "preload" the scope to one side and let it roll straight as it tightens. But the other option with the cantilever type mounts puts the...

    It's a Zeiss - pretty hard to make it without being etched. And that large eye box makes it pretty easy to pick up the target.

    I had one on both my Vent and Recruit - tried different ways - didn't like the idea of it putting torque on the scope tower/trigger housing - took them both off. I'll probably sell them someday.

    Seems like a 180 to me, but when you indicated +/- .003" tolerance for Dorge' nock, that's actually a range of .006" and I don't believe that much variation is possible with his single cavity mold. I...
