I need some tips on mounting a scope. I just picked up an FN SPR A1a and will be mounting Nikon Tactical glass in Badger rings onto a Badger base. Does anyone have any recommended tips/tricks to ensure the best mount possible?

Whooaaaa Troy, never ever use locktite on scope mounts or rings... I mounted a scope on a .475 Linebaugh pistol a month back, WITHOUT any locktite, and it hasnt moved yet..

Do what you want for your own guns, but I would never tell anyone to use loctite..

Read this month's American Rifleman, they have a excellent article abiout mounting optics in it.. The author even stresse to leave the loctite in the garage...

If your worried about removing screws that have had red loctite put on them, just take a soldering iron and heat the screw first when taking it out. Works every time for me.
