Rifle Scope Mounting Instructions

 How to Mount a Rifle Scope

  1. Establish a clean and secure work area where you can stabilize the rifle in a rifle rest, rifle vise or shot bags.
  2. Tools include a ring wrench (for dovetail style rings), torx driver, screw driver, mirror, magnetic bore sighter, alignment bars.
  3. Parts include rifle, scope, rings, bases, screws, mounting instructions, thread lube (gun oil), blue thread locker (not red).
  4. Remove the plug screws and clean the threaded holes.
  5. Install the front and rear mounts (bases) using gun oil on the screw threads  using a q-tip to maintaining a smooth running torque.  Torque the screws to 18 - 22 inch pounds.
  6. Install the front and rear rings using the ring wrench and screw driver but do not tighten the screws just yet.  Ensure the front and rear rings are aligned using the alignment bars or the scope to be mounted.
  7. Position the scope in the lower half of the rings and align the back of the scope eye piece with the back of the trigger guard.
  8. Install the ring caps (upper half of the rings) but leave the screws barely snug.
  9. Now check the eye relief by shouldering the rifle and set the scope on the highest magnification setting.  Check that the field of view is clear when shouldered at a comfortable position.  Adjust the scope position forward or further back depending on how well the eye relief matches your sight picture.
  10. Adjust the retical to ensure it is straight up and down.
  11. Torque down the ring caps to ensure the gap on each side is as even as possible.  (A 1/32 gap on each side)  Torque to 18 - 22 inch pounds.
  12. Use a mirror to find he mechanical zero of the scope.
  13. Insert the bore sighter on the end of the rifle barrel.  Video shows a Leupold Zero Point Magnetic Illuminated boresighter.
  14. Make elevation and windage adjustments as required.  Large windage adjustments can be made with the mounts and later, fine adjustments can be made with the dial retical adjustments in the scope.
  15. Use a one shot zero method at the range by securing the gun in a shooting vise, firing the gun and moving the cross hairs to match the point of impact.
