    Word to the wise, learn how to install your own optics and never trust the guy at the gunsmithing bench at your local sporting goods store. That store may even sell the proper kit to do the installation, but do they use it? No! They just slap the rings on, slap the scope in and tighten it down. Doing such an installation can and will destroy your scope!

    If you have competent gunsmith and you are patience he will do a good job. Robert S. Most people don't understand that placing optical take more skill then the common lay persons skill set.

    If you understand basic tool use and can "feel" the lower scope rings when properly aligned (one can use the scope itself, but a good alignment tool will insure perfection), then snug down the upper ring screws gently but evenly across the bolt pattern, proper installation is not beyond capability. I've done about a dozen over the last 25 years, and haven't "ruined" a scope yet.
