Scope Mount FAQs

What are the different types of scope mounts?

The two basic types of scope mounting systems are Weaver and Picatinny. They are virtually identical and their profiles indistinguishable. The major difference is in the placement of recoil grooves and the width of the grooves. MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny grooves are .206” wide and have a center width of .394”. Whereas the Weaver system is designed with a .180” width of recoil groove and center-to-center measurement is unnecessary. Universal fit is not an issue with the Weaver mounting system meaning in most cases, they will fit on a Picatinny rail system. However, the bigger recoil groove of the Picatinny design means the overwhelming majority of Picatinny accessories will not fit the Weaver systems.

 

Can I fix an uneven scope mount?

Yes. An uneven scope mount is often a result of mounting mistakes including the over torque of base and ring screws. Additionally, incorrect lapping. Over torqued base screws can be stripped out requiring them to be drilled out, tapped and new replacement screws used. On an occasion, we will see misaligned base holes. An expert gunsmith here at Gunware can drill out and fill the old base holes, followed by using a tap to create new properly aligned holes. We can then properly remount your scope with proper torque specs, level and sight in your rifle as good as new.

 

How do you measure scope mounts?

To get the optimum performance from your scope ring, you need to choose the correct ring height – low, medium or high; the difference found between the web of the ring and the bottom of your scope. The higher the objective on your scope, the higher ring need needed. A scope with a 56 mm objective would be a good fit for a 30mm scope mount QD.

The lowest scope mount possible to clear the bolt action and forward optic of the scope is ideal. But the primary goal is to assure the scope is in perfect alignment with your eye when raising your rifle to peer into the crosshairs. If your mount is too low, you will bury your cheek into the stock misaligning your rifle cant trying to meet with the scope.
