Shimming SIG 551a1 Rail. Shimming Scalarworks LEAP Mount.

While putting an Aimpoint on the SIG 551 rifle, I noticed the Scalarworks mount kept coming lose at the bench. After a number of tries, we reached out to Scalarworks and asked if there was a known issue with 55x series rails. 

They indicated they were not aware of any, so we went ahead and shimmed it with a pop can.

Something like this isn’t unheard of. Especially when dealing with non-standard weapons.
