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...

I guess it wont hurt.. If you never want to remove your scope.. But I have never had one.. IN QUALITY mounts or rings come loose..

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.
