Never Ever Buy Simmons Rings!

Postby vvllbs » 22 Jun 2018 16

Well I had a little stash of nice rimfire rings and gave them to an employees son when he got his first .22. Picked up a few 22’s this year for myself and all I could find in town were Simmons. The heads strip out with no strength at all. They would have never stood a chance with my Wheeler Fat Wrench. These are worse than those five dollar Daisy rings. Absolutely terrible! Had to drill the heads off! Image

Bought a .30-30 Winchester off a fellow who brought it into the shop.
Told him what I'd pay.
He said 'With the scope?'
I said 'With or without the scope the price is the same'
'Would you take the scope off for me at that price?'
'Sure, I can do that.'
Lucky for me, since that Simmons scope package was merely loosely tightened on. It'd have stripped out and bashed anyone shooting it in the eye first shot. Wasn't evident it was loose until I got to the mount screws.

I get crap for using 'heavy' and 'expensive' mounts and rings but I know I can count on them.
