Repeatable Return to Zero:
The Shepherd Double Lug Rings will return to zero within 1/10 Mil or your money back. Their precision CNC machining allows them to interface with the Picatinny rail precisely; exactly the same way every time. The geometry of the design was carefully selected to provide extreme rigidity at the rail interfaces.
The Shepherd Double Lug Rings were designed to be as close to indestructible as possible. We believe we have achieved our goal. The six Grade 8 screws per ring providing tremendous clamping force on the scope over a large area eliminating any possibility of scope movement without “pinching” or “ring-marking” or otherwise damaging the scope. The four Grade 8 clamp screws providing up to 70% more clamping force on the rail than competing designs. The two machined-in integral recoil lugs per ring providing several times more strength than is necessary, and the thick cross-section of 7075-T6 billet aluminum throughout provides amazing strength, stiffness, and light weight which is unmatched.
Our rings are highly recommended on 50 Cal rifles. Of course, you do not need a 50 Cal to enjoy the strength, accuracy and durability the Shepherd Double Lug Rings provide (and the peace of mind that comes with them), especially if you subject your equipment to harsh, severe use.
Despite their brute strength, the Double Lug Rings are surprisingly lightweight. CNC machined entirely from 7075-T6 Billet Aluminum with carefully selected geometry, they are extremely efficient. These scope rings are noticeably lighter than the most common, much narrower, four screw steel tactical rings.
Ease of Removal and Re-installation:
While the Shepherd Double Lug Rings technically aren’t “quick release” rings because they require the use of a tool, they are very fast and easy to remove taking only seconds longer than QR mounts should the scope need to be removed in the field. One of the many advantages of using four #8 screws instead of two ¼” crossbolts/studs/nuts to secure the clamp to the rail is the only tool required for removal is the included small L-shape TORX wrench. Since all required clamping force is obtained with only 35lb-in of torque, the screws are easily loosened by hand using the small wrench.
