I have a new Remington Police, Seekins rings and an SS10x42M scope.

Yes, I am a newbie to rifles + scopes.

 

Glen Seekins so generously offered to walk me through it on the phone one evening, but I have not had the time to do it yet.

I was wondering if there was some manual, white paper, etc that documents the process of mounting a scope/rings to a rifle.

Thanks,

 

MT

Welcome.

 

If it's your first, I'd recommned going through it with someone who has done it before or taking it to a smith and having him walk through it with you.

 

There are litte tricks (proper screw torque, tightening in rotation, squaring the reticle, avoiding tube torque) that don't lend themselves well to absentee instruction.

 

For the money, you got the best deal in rifle and scope, enjoy.

Welcome to The OT.

 

I think Rancid gave you some excellent advise. Getting someone to "walk you through" the process is prudent.

 

As an aside, Badger Ord gives some helpful info on their website that may be helpful as well.

Excellent purchase, my friend!!

A SS and a Remington is a lethal combination........

http://www.seekinsprecision.com/ussr.asp  I had to look them up. Since it is picatinny rail mounting should be fairly straight forward. You want the scope to have the right eye relief  (front to back) and you want it straight ( side to side). Tighten the screws down but dont crank down on them hard enough to strip the threads. A tork wrench is nice but I have put lots of scopes on rifles just by feel and they have worked just fine. Every now and then I may have to readjust the cant of one at the range that looked just fine in the basement the night before but has a noticable lean to one side when I got to the 200 yard target.
