Re: Need help mounting new scope to Rugger M77 mkII
Dude, I have 2 Ruger M77 MKII rifles (tang safety models). So yes, I know what you're talking about. But it's still not possible. The scope would never seat, unless the rings had been reamed at a downward angle, which would be next to impossible of that have happened.
I'm sorry, it still just doesn't make sense. It's basic geometry that a line sittin on top of 2 other flat-top blocks of different heights that are attached at the bottom on a single plane, that the line will be canted at an angle, and will not be properly seated (touching flat and evenly) to the blocks.
I'm sorry, but I'm not gonna remove one of my scopes just to prove this point. Any idiot who's EVER mounted a scope could tell you that, unless the rings have been milled to be mounted on an angle, it just ain't happening without some damage to something somewhere...
