Pinpoint precision is key for success both in the field and at the range - and that typically requires the installation of sights and scopes to help you hone in on your target. Dig into Academy.com's array of scope mounts to make the installation process simple. Comprising both base and rings, scope mounts are available in either one- or two-piece configurations, and each offers certain advantages. One-piece scope mounts, for example, are aligned from the get-go, while two-piece mounts require the gun owner to ensure precise alignment before attaching the scope. Additionally, two-piece mounts are favored by those seeking an exceptionally lightweight firearm, as one-piece mounts tend to be considerably heavier.
For the gun owner who prefers to create a more precisely personalized scope mount, consider purchasing separate scope bases and scope rings. This allows you to select bases with certain features that meet your personal requirements, such as lightweight construction or a matte finish, while collecting a range of rings that may suit different scopes. Regardless, be sure that the components you select are compatible with the rail on your gun, whether it's Picatinny- or Weaver-style.
