See post #102 on this thread re Ren's XM25 parts.
Also see this link: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=968541

XM25/M25 rings were Leupold part # 40638 (older flat top design)
Newer Leupold is identical except is "round" on top of rings, as seen in the above link.

Badger makes a close substitute to the original Leupold but with the round top as well.

Hey Wes, check out the "4" on the hex, I've seen "R" stamped there as well. What it means or stands for I have no idea.

Heat treat lot code, various numbers and letters also marked BPT on one lot

from what I have seen. Unmarked ones were from first run on screws.

Thank you Sir, good usable intel is always appreciated. Been wondering about those markings for some time now.

Jon Wolfe received the receiver and barrel from George Roghaar today, he did the parkerizing on the Barnett barrel and GunWorks receiver.

The receiver has done more traveling in the last couple of months than I have in the last couple of years! It shipped from Al. to KY. delivered to Jon Wolfe in NC. off to Mitch Mateiko in MA. to have receivers legs fitted to the liner, back to NC. off to Mr.Roghaar in FL. for parkerizing, shipped back to Jon.

I'm hoping this will finally get done in the next couple of months, just depends on Jon and how busy he is.

On another note, I saw a nice original Bausch & Lomb Tactical 10x40 Scope on Ebay item number 262923889898. It appears to be in very nice to excedllent condition, though I think he is a bit high on the asking price of $2299.00

In comparison to this scope I did very well, my B&L Tactical being in like new condition. Jon has it and will be installing it with rings being lapped.

Oh how the next few months will seem like forever!

Very nice, cant wait to see the finished rifle! Also, I received some BPT replacement parts for my mount from Mitch. The mounting screws were marked with the "&" symbol, which he said was used to mark replacement parts. Add that one to the book!

Terry, does the BPTco. mount have any markings? The hex bolt with no markings or stamps were the first made, just wondering if the mount has any markings, I believe the first mounts had no markings as well.

I have several "4" and had an "R" stamped on the hex which stands for the heat lot.

Terry, the hex bolt was not marked early on, if your mount is stamped with the BPT US PROPERTY it is at the least the second production run as the first was not marked or stamped.

Subsequent Hex bolts were stamped either by letter or number to denote heat lot. The hex bolt with the "&" denotes replacement bolt.
