    Reason I looked it up was ,I thought maybe a guy gets one really good scope and be able to mount it to different riffles ??Is it possible to have mounting rails that adjust so your scope is zeroed on every riffle ?

    I realize this thread is essentially dead, but I'm currently looking at detachable mounts, so I'll post here.
    Where I hunt moose there's thick bush to open 200-300 yd swales. I currently have a 4x-12x Leupold on my Browning Eclipse .300 win mag as I typically hunt these swales. While resting in the bush a bull walked out of thick brush 30 ft in front of me. Even at 4x he was so close I couldn't make heads or tails what I was looking at and he got away. Thinking a detachable mount with an alternate holosight or 1.5x scope would have solved that situation.

    I use the Leupold QD on my in-line muzzleloaders. Makes it much easier to clean when you can pop the scope off, clean then put it back on.

    Good question Sir!
    I recommend using none quickie scope rings and here’s why. Try this exercise, make sure your rifle is unloaded the remove the bolt for safety. Pick a spot out at around 100 yards; this will be your imaginary target. As you snap the rifle up, roll the rifle to the right if you’re left handed roll it to the left so you can see straight down the side of the scope. Now roll the scope into position and you should be able to see the target. With training and time you’ll be able to toss the rifle up and be dead on! Training on running Jack Rabbits were my targets when I was a kid shooting 30-06!

    I have Leupold detachable on my .416 which have worked fine for about 15 years. The truth is I have only taken them off a few times and then worried about the Leupold 3 x scope being properly aligned when reattached which it was. I chose Leupold because it was the only brand that I could get when I needed it. This was before the internet and I didn't want to make numerous phone calls.

    Doulas, if that is the case, just invest in some scope lens covers or a ScopeCoat, way cheaper and more practical...

    Douglas, that is the kind of hunting situation where these might work. Not if he's already spooked though as it takes 10 seconds or so to take mine off.

    I asked because I had a situation last fall in the wet snow when my scope fogged. A quick detach would have got me a shot with the open sights.
    All I ended up seeing was heels and flags.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll check them out some more.

    I could only see detachable rings a necessity for one purpose or one type of rifle - an tactical rifle. Be it an AR-15, MINI-14 or M1A. Why have detachable rings on a hunting rifle?

    If you hunt in frequent wet snow, freezing rain, rain or fog, as is often prevelant in the N.E. in November/December, They're not a terrible idea. Only once did i not take a shot because of a Fogged scope (a luepold)several years ago, in that case my hunting buddy took the shot before i ever thought to remove my scope. I will, however, think to do so if it happens again.
