Hey everyone! I have a quick issue that will probably seem really stupid. I've shot all my friends and family's rifles before, but I just decided to buy my own rifle and make it my own. I purchased a Savage Model 10FCP Law Enforcement .223 Remington. I really like the gun and I want to mount a Nikon ProStaff 4x-12x 40mm scope on it. The only problem is that I don't know what to do to mount my scope on there. I know that seems like a really stupid problem. But, I don't know where to find the rail for that gun and I don't want to order a scope mount rail that won't fit.

These should work well for you.  http://swfa.com/Talley-Lightweight-Aluminum-1-Scopemount-P4971.aspx

To put them on, just take the little filler screws out of the action on your gun.  Take the top half of the rings off and line up the holes in the bases with the holes in your action.  Then tighten the screws in them to 15in lbs.  Set your scope in the rings, attach the rings tops with the screws put in lightly but not tight.  Then makes sure the rifle is level, and make sure the reticle in the scope is level.  Then tighten the rings caps down to 15 in lbs.

We usually do 20in lbs on the screws that go into the action.

Be careful not to over tighten the screws. To much torque can damage a scope. It sounds weird but snug holds better than Tractor tight. Welcome to the OT and have fun learning a great sport.Smile

I meant to type 15 in lbs, that is what I do with all bases.  Good catch CF2.  My bad.

You have caught a fair share of mine. Just returning the favor. Wink I think the specs on the Talley is 15-20. We normally do 20 though.

Sounds like you got a good rifle. If a may make a reccommendation,  Since you got a excellent out of the box rifle. I would say somewhere down the road consider investing in a better scope. Not sure of what your purpose of the rifle is, but a better scope will really make that rifle come alive and allow you to get the most from it.
You made an excellent choice of rifles to purchase. Goodluck with it. Savage makes a fine gun. I hope enjoy it thoroughly.
