How do I install a riflescope?

This can be a tricky process, but with a little know-how and a little help from your Scope manual, you can easily get it done with no hassle. Here are some basic instructions. Then we'll explain some area adjustments after you've made your Rifle scope have successfully mounted.

1. Getting Started - A pistol vise could be useful for assembling your scope. You will need a clear, well-lit area and possibly some degreaser and oil. You may also need special tools such as a screwdriver, socket wrench, Torx wrench or even the Leupold ring spanner. You can remove all of the filler plugs that came with the scope with the screwdriver and degrease the attachments if necessary.

2. Make sure you have the correct type and size of mounting rings and feet. The riflescope should come with pre-drilled holes or grooves for your mounting system. Fastening rings can be either one-piece or two-piece. One part is usually easier to install because it is already aligned with the base. With two-piece rings, you will typically need to use a tool to align the circumferential ring.

3. You need to install the base and then the mounting rings onto the barrel of your rifle according to the mounting system you have. Usually it will be either the Weaver, Picatinny, or Dovetail systems of some sort. The base goes first and then the bottom half of the mounting rings. Make sure you put them in the right direction, as low as possible while still having leeway, and with a light layer of oil to prevent rust. You'll also want to tighten each screw a few turns and then move on to the next one.

4. Lower the scope into the lower rings to be mounted. Then place the top rings on top to screw them tight. It is important that you follow the recommended torque recommendations for your rifle scope as you can inadvertently over tighten the rings and damage your rifle scope. You'll also need to be careful to tighten the screws in a criss-cross pattern. This will depress the ring tops evenly from side to side to ensure that the endoscope tube is not twisted after tightening. Using a torque wrench to complete this process can help, but before you over-tighten, be sure to check your eye aid.

When your firearm is experiencing a large amount of recoil, shoulder the rifle and raise the scope towards your eye to look for eyelid. You should make sure that you don't leave the area with "evidence" (maybe a black eye) that you have gone through the assembly process. When there is enough eye relief, finally tighten the screws. If it doesn't, slide the scope forward in the rings until you have the desired clearance, then tighten the screws.
