Is there a way to NOT scratch up a scope when tightening up the rings? It's not a great scope to begin with, but I want it to hold firm, so I tighten it and it scratches up the scope. Not so worried, but I do want to upgrade to a Burris before too long. I have a Burris mount and rings, so how do you guys keep from scratching up your scope?

Oh, and how tight is too tight, and can it hurt the scope????

Welcome to OT.

 

Burris offers Signature rings, which use plastic inserts.  Using those should not leave scars on the tube of your scope.

 

When tightening your screws, and your wrench that is supplied with the mounts starts to bend a bit, you are plenty tight.

Cut pieces of double sided scotch tape to fit the inside of the rings- it will not only stop the scratches it will hold the scope better, - without so much torque.
