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?

check and see if the shell stop hasn't broken loose. this on the inside left side of the action . this could stopping the next shell in the mag. from being loaded. this not uncommon. but is an easy fix. a gun smith can stake it back in . in a few minutes for around $20.00
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.
Paul , got the fotos, now I know what you got. And now I know I don't have that one, but,,,, My local ace hardware has a ton of ancient bases and rings in a draw, I can go through them, also, did you try gunparts.com? They sell to the public and have just about everything known to man. E-mail,,, [email protected]
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
