Burnt Bronze Scope Rings!

Cerakote finish!


Across the gun industry there has been significant growth in the popularity of the burnt bronze Cerakote finish.  This burnt bronze Cerakote finish is now used on a number of bolt action rifles, semiautomatics rifles and AR style rifles. So much so that scope manufactures are now building burnt bronze scopes and individuals are having the burnt bronze finish applied to their existing scopes.


To help put the finishing touches on the burnt bronze theme; Talley has just completed an initial limited run of this burnt bronze scope ring.  These burnt bronze scope rings have a finish designed to match what is currently found on rifles such as the Browning X-Bolt Hells Canyon or Weatherby Mark V Weathermark Bronze Burnt Bronze Cerakote Bolt Action Rifles.

Talley Modern Sporting Ring Scope Mount Torque Recommendations?

  • Cap Screws on Rings:  17-20 in/lb on ring cap screws. Do not exceed scope manufacturer’s allowable torque specs on main tube. Always recommended to verify with scope manufacturer allowable torques to prevent marking or damage to scope tube.  Always verify with the scope manufacturer the maximum  allowable torque on main tube.


  • Picatinny rail locking plate screws: Torque limitations can depend on picatinny rail manufacture, however the locking plate and screws of the TMS rings can be torqued up to 25inlbs. This has been proven to be more than adequate torque for any caliber when the mating surfaces are correct (i.e. rail and rings within MIL-STD-1913 picatinny rail specs). Always make sure your torque wrench is calibrated, Talley Mfg is not responsible for damage caused to scopes or firearms due to over torquing.



  • On the TMS Rings we do not recommend using Loctite. When properly torqued there will be no movement in screws.
