Do not send a mount back to us with thread locker on it.

Thread Locker – it is not needed with our mounts if it is installed correct. DO NOT use any type of thread locker on our long ring screws. The screws we use are longer than other companies screws. We have about 20 threads holding your scope in place on each screw. If you do use thread locker, most of the time you will have to saw or break screws to get your scope out of mount. Do not send any mount back to us for exchange or refund if it has thread locker on the mount at any spot.

The correct way to install our mounts in just a few minutes– Set the mount on top of your receiver or barrel and line up all of the holes in mount to the holes in your firearm. Install all base screws ( short screws ) thru mount and thread loosely into gun. Tighten each screw and loosen them to see if it holds mount tight on each screw. If you have a screw that bottoms out in threaded hole you will need to shorten it up a thread or so. This does not happen much, but it has happened in the past. Some holes are not tapped as deep as others or as deep as needed. Next – using long end of wrench into head of screws. Hold mount down against firearm and snug very front and very back base screws on mount, then snug other base screws. Next – turn wrench around and install short end into head of screw and tighten each screw while holding one thumb on top of wrench pushing down into head of screw and other thumb on end of long end of wrench. For STEEL receivers or barrels tighten until you start to feel wrench flex or bend. Hold torque for 5 seconds, this locks screw into place. Do each screw, and then do all of them again to seat screws in place. Talk with gun maker to get correct torque specs on their receivers or barrels when using torque tools. You will have to use less torque on Aluminum receivers. We go 30 inch pounds on our steel receiver guns we buy and 18 inch pounds on our Aluminum receiver guns we buy using our screws. Our base screws are longer than most others. Next – Install scope and install rings. Turn each screw (long screws )into mount and snug them to where you can still move scope. You need to have about the same gap on both sides of rings, about 1/32” between mount and rings. Next – get proper eye relief correct and then level cross hairs in scope. Next – tighten screws a little and then recheck to see if crosshairs are still level. Next – Tighten ring screws the same way as listed above on base screws until wrench starts to flex and bend. Hold torque for 5 seconds and do each screw. Then do each screw again and this will give you the correct torque. Our mounts are machined so true and straight it takes more torque to hold a scope in place. 25 inch pounds on ring screws for a cheap $60.00 scope. 30 inch pounds on a good quality scope. You will not hurt the threads in our mounts since we use such long ring screws. The screws can handle 60 to 70 inch pounds. After 60 to 70 the hardened steel screws start to break. Some light weight firearms and heavy weight scope combos take a few more inch pounds or torque to hold in place since mount is made so true and straight.
