Hi... I just received an exciting package the mail, my Vortex Diamondback 3-9x40 with an EGW HD Remmi 700 Long Action Base and a set of Burris Xtreme Tactical 1" Low rings. When I attach the rings they can slip forward and backwards! Both rings are doing the same thing. This isn't rock solid. I'm baffled because I see that so many people use this setup and I thought Picatiny rails are universal. I'm going to contact Burris and EGW tommorow... sigh. What do you guys think?

Are you tightening the rings to the base good enough ?

I have an EGW base and Warne scope rings and they work perfect.

Yes, I tried tightening them pretty darn hard... it says in the instructions to finger tighten the knobs. I got them tight enough the only way i could untighten them was with a wrench. Also these rings are supposed to be mounted with the knobs to the left side of the gun, which I did. I tried every other way as well.

For me I have the burris AR mount and had to do the same thing. So I dont think you have defective rings they just require some good tightening.
