    In todays world of excuses and reasons, I am pleased to share my experience with Talley MFG, in Santee South Carolina. I have been using Talley products for over 12 years with complete satisfaction. 8, or 10 years back, I had purchased several sets of both tactical and hunting style rings, and for the most part they sit around until I, or a friend mine need a set. After a few years go by, I open a box and noticed that one of the rings was cracked. I brought them with me to the Shot Show, and they explained to me that the rings that I was using was discontinued because of cracking, mainly because of overtightening, ( this wasn't the case with mine). They said send them back, and it will be replaced immediately, which they held true to their word. Yesterday, I came across a few more sets from the same lot, and I called Talley. I explained to them that I have had these rings for years, and wanted to know if they have the potential for cracking. They explained that they may or may not, however throw them away and replacements are in the mail. I asked him if he wanted me to send them back, and he politely replied not necessary. I apologize for not getting the young mans name, however Talley made a customer for life, and if the opportunity arises, I will tell this story over and over again.
    Thank you Talley
    Cheers

    When I lived outside Santee a few years back, I visited the Talley Manufacturing plant several times, more or less to just shoot the breeze with owner Dave Talley.

    The first time there I got into the shop by invitation from Dave, to see just how these items are made, and the CLOSE tolerances that were held without question.

    Being an industrial machine mechanic all my life, I knew and could appreciate the precision equipment he had there, and the pride that the machinists and inspectors had in their work. One young machinist came over to Dave and said: "How does this look to you Dave"? He was so proud of a prototype piece he had made, and the extremely close tolerances he had held. His pride was beyond question, put forth into his workmanship.

    All this being said, I would not hesitate one bit to put the Talley products at the TOP of my list.
