I have been trying to get these rings installed on my Remingtong shotgun and cannot seem to get them to fit on the cantilever base. Are these rings supposed to fit this? I understand that the cantilever scope base used on shotguns should be made to the same dimensions as weaver bases, but these rings are a little to tight of fit. Is there an easy way to pry them wider so they will slide on the base?

Occasionally you will have to pry them apart. Don't bend them too far though. If you just need a tad bit more spacing then you can pry. We usually do this with a flat head screw driver. Place the screw drive in the slot where the metal bends. Turn it until it is wide enough. Do it to both sides (front and back) so it is even. Make sure you pull the screw out before you try this. Be careful not to turn too far.

Thanks for the info Brady. I will try out your method and tell you how it worked. They are just a little too tight as they are, hopefully a small bend will get them to fit.

I finally got the rings to fit. It was tight but they just barely slid on the cantilever scope base on my Remington Model 870 Slug gun. Now to the range for some sighting in.
