It can be very frustrating for the hunter, the competition shooter, and professionals that rely on precision and accuracy when they miss the target because the scope on their firearm is not properly mounted. You may have all the skills and experience but without a good firearm of which all parts fit and work well, you are at a certain disadvantage.

This applies to the way the scope is fitted on top of your firearm too. Some hunters and shooters acquire their rifles, guns, and pistols from the retailer with the scope already mounted; others prefer to fit it themselves after having bought it separately from their firearm.

Fortunately, these hunters and shooters have options since some retailers sell scopes separately, and also those accessories one needs to fit the scope on the firearm.

Some retailers offer these scopes and/or accompanying parts in their shop whereas others offer them as an online product. The latter has become a very popular way of acquiring these in recent times. The sight is attached to the firearm with what is referred to as scope mounts. There are two main types of mounts, i.e., scope ...
... ring mounts and scope rail mounts.

The ring mounts for scopes consist of a base part and rings for the scope to be fitted to. You have choices between 1- and 2-piece systems where the base and rings are concerned. Rings fit bases. They come in different heights to meet the demands and requirements of the individual rifle owner, and also in different sizes such as, say, 30 mm, 34 mm, or 1-inch to fit the profile of the firearm to which they are fitted. There are fewer common sizes too, for example, 19.05 mm, 22.2 mm, 26 mm for some of the older European scopes and a few others, but they are not the standard ones that are generally available.

In addition to rings and bases that form the mounting system, rifle owners also have a choice of, for example, integrated mounting systems which are rings with integrated base for direct fitting to Picatinny rails as opposed to the ring system.

Ring mount systems usually consist of the base which attaches to the firearm with fine screws that you buy together with the system, and the rings that attach to the sight. Bases and rings can be fitted to the firearm with DIY, provided you feel confident about the process, which is not difficult if you follow the retailer's instructions. Those that order their systems online will be given a manual or explanation whereas those that buy from a retailer in the gun shop can ask the owner of the shop for instructions.

Some of the best online services often have dealers throughout the state or country where their customers can ask for advice about mounting the system as well. Or, contact the website for additional information and assistance. The good ones are always keen to help their customers and followers. Mounting these systems yourself is hardly difficult – simply follow the retailer's or the website's instructions.

As for the choices about what these systems are made of, it is mentioned that some are made of steel and other choices from aluminum. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. For example, steel is stronger and harder but prone to corrosion, which is a drawback, whereas aluminum may not be as strong but it keeps longer and is much lighter than steel, which is favored by many rifle owners.

And depending on the firearm you use and what type of action it has, you can truly finetune your choices. Of course, this means you have to choose well the retailer you buy from, whether you place an online order or visit someone's brick and mortar.
