Alright, went to pull a scope off a Browning rifle that had been mounted for 20 plus years - got front screws out and split ring off but back screws would not budge.
Soaked screws for about an hour with loosen-er solvents - ended up stripping both allen screw heads - anybody got a good backup plan before I resort to drilling them out and ruining the Leupold rings to get the scope free?
Gonna leave them soaking for now - they may have had lock tite used when installed ???
