i may take this 1 level further and just try to silicone a scope on a gun and see if that solves all the issues
i do know you now get silicone baking trays etc and they used to be metal
or maybe we could try some 3d printed mounts
i suppose the only other alternative is to learn how your equipment reacts in different temperatures etc.
i shall now run away before the public stoning
1 day I will find the perfect setup till then I will just pretend and keep looking
