Airgun scope bases are different than firearm scope bases, although they share similarities. Airguns are more difficult to mount scopes, and the scope bases do all the work. Learn about the different types of scope bases and when they’re used.
Airguns are different than firearms in many ways, but one of the most surprising is that airguns can be much harder on scopes and scope mounts than firearms.

Learn all about scope stops and scope-stop pins in this instructional video.
