Default Talley Lightweight Rings vs Dednutz rings

I bought a pair of Dednutz for a Browning Abolt and a pair of Talley Lightweights for the same gun(don't ask it is a long story). I have to tell you that I think these Dednutz rings are some of the most rugged rings I have seen and yet are very lightweight(all aluminum) if you saw the length of the cap screws and the size of the basescrew heads you would be amazed. Someone was thinking when these were designed. The have a superior finish to the talley lightweights in fact it's not even close and they are better machined . I put a lapping bar on both and the talleys needed it but not the others. FWIW.

Oh they(Talley) are still top drawer but these Dednutz don't give up anything to them. I would say for the guy that wants to use Leupold 2 piece dovetail rings setup on a rifle that these are much better. They use all 4 holes on the receiver. According to my collimator on a side to side test the Dednutz were closer much closer to the bore center then the Talleys.

Shock and disbelief! I put some Talley lightweights on a .308 84M and they have been great. Absolutely no issues. Guess I'll check out the Dednutz for the next "project". Thanks for the info.

I have had no issues with Talley lightweights..the QD and non detachable steel rings have not been that great. Dednutz are just another viable good option for those that are interested
