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
