Area 419 ARCALOCK Clamp
When we set out to make an ideal scope ring, the things we knew we needed to accomplish, and do to a degree you won’t find anywhere else on the market, is to produce a reliable, and true capture of the optic. This led us down a rabbit-hole, ultimately arriving on a process that gets you serialized, final-bore matched rings, with raw aluminum internals, for a grip on your optic that is more reliable and more true than anything else made.
Like most rings, these begin as separate parts. We are making the bases and caps in batches. While many will make these parts, send them to anodize, and then just assemble, we produce around the extra steps. Once these parts return from anodize, they are fully assembled, placed back into specially produced rail fixtures, with the caps torqued to spec over specially made spacers (to give the rings space to torque down on the optic), and final-bored as sets in our world-class machining centers. Rings are then brought off the machine in sets, and placed into the laser to mark them as sets, with each set being uniquely identified as a match to its precision-bored counterparts.
Is it overkill? Probably. But we think it’s the right way. So that’s what we are going to do.
