As the saying goes "do it once, and do it right". Mounting a rifle scope should be no exception.
When you travel on a plane, drive in a truck or just walk to your stand, there's always a chance that your rifle scope is going to get knocked around. Unfortunately, that means that there's also a chance that your rifle scope is going to get knocked off zero.
Don't take a chance of your scope being off zero and watch James from O'Neill Ops show you how to mount a rifle scope the right way, one time.
Nice work, James.
Whether you're reloading ammunition or mounting a new optic, having the right tools to get the job done will make your life much easier. Having a set of hex and speciality bits for scopes, rings, and other accessories is the only way to accurately make sure that everything is tightened down correctly. Weaver's 88 piece Deluxe Gunsmith's kit is everything you'll need to make sure that all screws are tightened down right and without worrying about stripping anything.
Personally, I can attest to the hassle and inconvenience that's caused when you break a screw head when mounting a new rifle scope. Trust me, you'll want to avoid that situation at all costs!
