Mounting a rifle scope

4 posts in this topic

Anyone out there have the pin set-up and remers to properly mount a scope on a rifle? Or, do most just simply screw on the mounts and tighten them up and hope it's lined up properly. I purchased a new Weatherby Vanguard SS Sub-MOA in the .300 WSM and need to mount a scope on it. I've seen that there is usually very limited contact between the actual scope and the rings if not done properly and the scope can move a little with repeated firing. Maybe I need to just bend over, shell out some more cash, and bring it into a gunsmith???

I use the blue,medium locktite product on ALL mounting

hardware during the install process. This includes

some on each ring half where it meets the scope tube.

This is easily done by first marking the eye relief

with tape on the tube body next to the ring, then taking

the scope back off to put the locktite on the rings.

Another tip is to gently tap (wooden/nylon mallet)

the screws in during the last stage of tightening down

ALL screws. A good gun-screwdiver set is needed.

Don't forget a couple drops of blue between the base

and receiver as well.

I'm lazy I take mine to a gunsmith, I tried years ago to do it and tightened it down and broke the scope more or less, so now I pay the $20 to have it done right....good luck

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
