Newbie at this.. bought a couple of rifles and scopes that were supposed to be mounted, but due to a miscommunication they were not.

Is mounting a scope as easy as it looks or are there things I need to be aware of before starting?

Rich, it's really not that hard.When I put the bottom of the ring on the rifle I always put Loc-Tite on the allens before I thread them. Once the scope is mounted and semi-tight, whoever is going to be using it needs to look through the scope for proper eye relief, no 2 people will be the exact same.(we don't want either of the "not so little" Squids to lose an eyebrow lol ). The easiest and I think best way to do this is close both eyes, shoulder the rifle, open your eyes, and when you have a full field in the scope, that's the spot. When you have it in the proper location, make sure the cross hairs are straight, not tilted to either side. If they are off, it will affect it when you adjust elevation or windage. After all this is straight, tighten down the 4 set screws on each mount the same way you tighten lug nuts, you don't want to crush the tube.

If you don't already have the mounts, check the DNZ's, North Carolina product and hold up real well.

Any thing I can do, give me a call! wtg

^^^^what he said. Your wife's clear fingernail polish works for the screws too if you don't have any loc-tight. This is what I have used for years.
