Warne QD rings for 527?
« on: November 21, 2017, 09:05:55 PM »
I'm getting ready to order some QD rings for my Lux.  Stumbled on a post that the matte rings were powder coated not blued. Is that true? Also I'm now wondering if the gloss rings are powdered or blued?

Does it even matter in real world use?

 As far as I can tell, they are all powder cpated. I blasted a set of rings with 120 grit aluminum oxide to cerakote them to match the rifle. Really tough getting the coating off.

Powder coating, if done correctly, is extremely durable and protective.

Most complaints around powder are from insufficient surface prep, or metal conditioning. Chances are from a manufacturing environment it would be right.
I had the right to remain silent...

but not the ability.

Thank you guys.  It looks like Santa is carrying two sets of matte QDs for me!  After researching I find folks rarely complain about Warne rings regardless of the finish.

I have a matt finish Leupold scope on my CZ527 in the Warne qd rings.  I just read this and took a quick look and honestly cannot say what the finish is, most probably powder coat, as they do not quite look like blueing.  The finish more closely matches the blueing on the CZ, they have a bit of shine, definitely not a matt finish but not a high shine either.

I have Alaska Arms QD scope rings for my 550 FS. You should check them out. They stay zeroed after removing and reinstalling.
