Question about Redfield See Thru Rifle Scope Mount Base W/ Integ Rings

1 Answer

Can a novice install a Redfield base and rings?

I just bought a Remington 700 .270 (long action?) for hunting. I want to purchase Redfield dovetail mounts and rings with the windage adjustment to attach my Leopold VX-II 3-9X50. I've never mounted a scope before but would like to do it myself. What extent of gunsmithing is involved and will I need medium rings or high rings for this scope? Are there any installation instructions that I can review before I make the purchase?

Problem solved. Redfield had all the size information I needed and mounting the base was a breeze.

It should be as long as you're not planning to take one from more than 30-50 yards. As I recall it had pretty high grades for accuracy.

How many ft lb of torque for scope rings


A typical torque setting for scope bases (on a steel reciever) is 30 in/lbs. The rings (steel) need 15-20 in/lbs.

For a aluminum receiver and/or rings, 15-20 in lbs is about max. I use 10 in/lbs with blue Locktite for aluminum receivers and rings.

How to set up a redhead red dot pursuit deluxe


You must have the correct rings for your base. If the scope has rimfire dovetail rings already attached, it should be easy. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the dovetail mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!).Loosen the clamps, place the scope on the dovetail mount and tighten snugly.

If it has weaver mounts, you will need to install a weaver rail to your receiver. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the weaver mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!). Install the rings in the weaver slots, tighten snugly.

Redfield Rifle Scope Manual


I own a Redfield spotting scope the model year is between the 70's to 80's and I need to find a manual for it. But I was Wondering if you could answer a question there is a crossair, then there is another one right above that, then there is a loop on the bottom right hand corner. There is also a yard marker that starts at 600 and goes down to 100. Do you know what it is and how to use it or what the purpose of it is if you could help me that would be great. Thank you for all your help..Joshua Gambler
