Always verify that your firearm is UN-LOADED before performing any service on it. Warne recommends that you loosely assemble rings and scope onto firearm prior to final mounting to verify eye relief and ring spacing.
- Remove all screws from both rings. (A) Place the scope in the ring halves. Start all screws on both rings (with supplied 7/64 wrench) and move scope with rings to the scope bases.
- Place rings onto the bases with the cross bolts in the slots.
- Push each ring towards the muzzle (B) and tighten only the bottom screws to 25 in/lb max*.
- Adjust eye relief and level the reticle. Once both are correct, tighten the top screws on both rings to scope manufacturers’ recommended torque setting**, 18 in/lb maximum torque.
*Torque Spec are for dry threads, DO NOT USE THREAD-LOCKER COMPOUND
**Many scope manufacturers’ have established specific torque ratings for their scope and you must follow their recommended torque.
IMPORTANT: NEVER OVER TIGHTEN ANY BASE OR RING SCREW. NEVER ATTACH A SCOPE IF THE OBJECTIVE TOUCHES THE BARREL OR CAUSES INTERFERENCE WITH THE BOLT, SAFETY OR CYCLING OF THE ACTION. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE FIREARM OR SCOPE MANUFACTURERS’ RECOMMENDED TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN GUNSMITHING METHODS.
⇒ If you are unsure or do not have the proper tools, please contact a gunsmith for assistance, Warne will not be held liable for stripped/damaged receivers or scopes.
