I have used my Propoint for about a year, and I really like it. I had it mounted, awkwardly, on a cheap rail and it did fine. Occassionally, it would get a little loose, because of the poor quality mount.

I bought a new gooseneck rail and mounted the Propoint on the front of the rail.

The damn thing was crooked...not The gooseneck rail, the ProPoint.

I took the ProPoint off and eyeballed the rail, it was straight as an arrow.

I had another set of rings at the house, but they would not fit the ProPoint.

I have no idea how my rings became bent/warped/misshapen. Anyone know what rings I need to order to replace my defective ones?

I would like for hte rings to be as low as possible so that I can Co-Witness my iron and red dot sight.

TIA

Well... I had gone to the gunstore after I got home. I tried to locate new rings.. ($65.00 !!). They did not have the 30mm rings I needed. I went by Wally World, found a good deal on some ammo and some electronic earmuffs, but they also had no rings. So...refrigerator magnet strip was just about right. Two small pieces stacked on top of each other did the trick. TRG
