    Scope Ring Lapping

    First, mount up your scope base and the bottom half of the rings.

    There is a bit of disagreement as to whether or not you need to lap the top halves of the rings as well as the bottoms. Personally, I lap the tops and bottoms. My theory is that if there is a flaw in the top halves, it could still cause problems when I tighten the scope up in my freshly lapped bottoms. Plus, if done correctly, it won't hurt anything, so why not do it.
    1. Apply the lapping compound to the lap and the bottom halves of the rings.

    2. Install the top halves of the rings. I make sure that I have an even gap on both sides between the tops and bottoms of the rings. I want to snug the tops down enough that I can just work the lap.
    You'll want to mark the top halves of the rings so that if you ever take them off, you can get them back on exactly as they were. You'll want to keep them not only as front and rear, but also keep them oriented in the same manner (i.e., the front of the front, the front of the back). I do this by filing 1 small...

    Easy, Accurate, Scope Height Alignment

    Here is an easy, accurate method for scope height measurement:
    1. Mount your base to the rifle.
    2. Stack washers (or pennies, nickels, quarters, etc) in even stacks on the mount about where your rings would go. Build the stacks up until you get the scope at the ideal height that you want.
    3. Take one of the washer stacks and measure the height (preferrably with calipers).
    You will now have your ideal saddle height (top of the base to the bottom of the scope body or tube). In the accompanying photo, that is height "B".

    You will want to purchase a set of rings with a "B" height as close as possible to what you measured from your stack of washers

    When purchasing your rings, if they sold using height "A" (top of base to center of ring) then you will need to:
    • Add .5" to your washer measurements if you have a 1" scope tube
    • Add .59055" to your washer measurements if you have a 30mm tube
    • Add .66929" to your washer
