Every shooter and hunter know how much they depend on accuracy, especially when you do net get a second chance at hitting your target or prey. Therefore you need a good scope, or telescopic scope, attached to your firearm. But, without a good scope mount system to attach the scope to your rifle, you certainly are at a disadvantage.

The scope mount system, those rings and bases you buy to mount the scope, play a huge part in your ultimate success – or failure. You can buy the scope rings and bases from a retailer and then proceed with the mounting. These days many rifles are actually sold with the base as part of the rifle as it is in-built on top of the firearm. So, you will either use a scope mount system consisting of ring mounts and base, alternatively a scope mount for a rail mount such as a Weaver-style or Picatinny-style which is an integration system that provides the base.

This means anyone, when they follow a manufacturer’s instructions, can mount their own optic devices on their rifles – or shotguns and handguns. Owners of rifles that mount their scopes themselves, know that in addition to the ...
... scope, there are the rings and bases. The base attaches immediately to the firearm and serves as the support for the rings and the scope itself. This you will do with tiny screws supplied by the retailer or manufacturer that you buy from.

You have a choice between a 2-piece (most popular with hunters and shooters) and a 1-piece base. Choice depends on personal preference; however, it is important to know that different models and different brands have their own, specific requirements, also in terms of 1- or 2-piece bases.

Make sure you choose one that fits your rifle or other firearm. Therefore, deal with a knowledgeable retailer, gun shop or online service that understands all intricacies so they can give you the best advice in this regard. You secure the base (or 2-piece base) to the top of the firearm with the small screws you get with the base(s) for this purpose. This should be done properly since the base has to keep the rings and the scope in place, stable, and not at risk of moving when you fire.

In addition to these bases, you also get those rifles that come with their base already machined into the firearm – for these you do not need a base. Some have their bases as an integral part of the receiver. A good example in this regard that refers is Ruger’s Hawkeye rifle, for example. Then you get other examples where so-called top rails are the base, such as the Picatinny- or Weaver-style rail. When looking at buying your scope mounting system, talk to your dealer and let them explain to you your choices, and when – and when not – you will need a base with the rings.

All hunters and shooters have their own preferences of brand and firearm, whether you prefer a Browning or Ruger for which you need to purchase the scope mount system. If you deal with a well-known, experienced supplier, you may well find the specific system you need for your scope – also for the Ruger, as an example.

A good supplier will indeed be able to assist you with your Ruger scope mount requirements, whether you approach them for assistance with your Ruger 10/22, or for an American Ruger Centerfire, or for a Rimfire. A good supplier can assist. The customer will benefit from buying a good system that fits the profile of their firearm, and from dealing with an experienced service provider.
