This is the introduction to a special video I've prepared on scope mounting. I made the video all-inclusive, so no matter what kind of gun on which you're mounting your scope, you'll find the instructions here. The video is based on the article "All about scopes. Part 2, but it gives more examples. Refer to the article for more details.
I'll discuss the use of one-piece and two-piece rings. You'll find out when to use either type and what the benefits are or each.
You'll see several different types of scope stops to use with spring-piston air rifles. These include the plate type, the vertical holes and the new Leapers mount for RWS Diana-type mount with the recoil shock shoulder.
Next, I'll take you through the steps to properly mount a scope. These include positioning the rings on the gun, adjusting the scope for eye-relief, leveling the reticle and correctly tightening the scope cap screws so the scope doesn't get damaged.
It takes only a few minutes to set up a gun and scope that will last for years. When you do it, pay attention to the screw-tightening procedure, as this is where most people go wrong. It doesn't take a ton of torque on the screws to hold the scope tight, but all of them have to be tightened equally.
