Rifle scope install





#1
Does anyone know someone in the Henderson area that can install two scopes and not charge too much? I was going to take it to Dick’s but after everything going on with them I prefer not to give them any business. I just bought ant to make sure it’s installed correctly. I tried once but had some difficulties as scopes are a new thing to me. Thanks.

You'll almost certainly get a better install from one of the precision rifle shooters on the board than a gun shop that seldom ever mounts anything except an occasional basic scope on a hunting rifle. I'd jump at BW64's offer. You'll probably learn bunch as well.

I remember getting my 1st scope on my 1st precision rifle at a gun shop. I paid top dollar for the wrong set of cheap rings and install. They never even asked my to try it out for eye relief or LOP. About 3 months later when I knew more about how to do it right I changed everything and did it myself the right way and have done it many many times since then. I'll be mounting another one next week.

That’s what I was hoping for. I figure if I can see someone doing it and learn a few tips I could do it from then

A little knowledge and a few tools is all that you'll need to properly mount scopes and bases for years to come.

The tools I bought are just basically a Wheeler FAT Wrench Kit to properly torque any screws involved. You can also use that for torquing a barreled action to a stock as well. I use the older style none digital wrench ($45 to $50). Then a simple small bubble level set ($5 to $10).These are the most valuable tools you'll ever own to protect your high dollar scopes and make sure your rifle/scope systems are assembled correctly for optimum accuracy. I've used mine so many times I can count and I have never seem any signs of damage to anything mounted.
