Get rid of the torque wrench and use the long end of a Torx key to smash down that gap.

Definitely more gap than mine has. Can't fit a fingernail in mine.

I don't see any issues.

As long as you're satisfied with the torque and the gap is even on both sides there's nothing to worry about. I have a few scopes in Geissele mounts and the gap varies somewhat. All of them hold completely securely.

Looks good to me. I’d shoot it and forget about it.

Thanks but it doesn't bother me, I was just wondering. I love the mount and scope. Thanks Geissele and vortex for responding.

To add further to OP's question - there SHOULD always be a gap present. If you get a mount that has no gap present at all that would actually be more cause for worry. There are subtle variations in scope tube diameter tolerances as well as mount/ring tolerances simply due to the fact that no one can actually make anything 100% perfect. That gap won't have any negative effect on your setup at all and you'll be fine as long as your rings are torqued to proper spec.

Thanks!

Completely normal. Here is a picture of mine if you wanted further confirmation.

There should be a gap. Big problem if there is not.

The size of the gap is really irrelevant as long as you have both sides even (tightening back and forth side-to-side as you close the gap equally on both sides) and the rings are tightened to the proper torque spec for the scope tube. Go by scope manufacturer's recommendation on this, as tube thickness varies.

Also try to stay away from getting too close to the turrets with your rings, as torque there could affect tracking reliability.

I wouldn't put it past geissele to be doing a rolling change opening up the gap some due to incompatibility between their mounts and some optics based on variances. I always thought the good idea fairy bit too hard on what i bet was their goal of being able to make the rings go solid without damaging the scope in an effort to defeat stupid.

The only thing this proves, is I think I'm going to look into that mount. I LIKE!
