The story of my life....Day late and a dollar short. I will just have to jump on the next deal a little quicker. I didn't read the message from KL till after 10pm. So figured I would wait till morning to make the call. You definitely gave the buyer a good deal. Hope he enjoys it. If he ever decides to let it go and you hear about it let me know.

Okay I have a new question on this Project. I received a Nikon Prostaff 4X32 rimfire today. And had bought a set of Weaver quad lock mid height rings last week but found that they were going to be too low for a scope barrel to clear the rear peep sight. Even with the aperture removed the ghost ring would be too high. The scope I was test fitting with is my Bushnell 4X32. It's objective lens outside diameter is 38mm. The Nikon is 42. So I exchanged the mid height rings for a high set thinking that the larger scope would work okay. And this is the result, the bottom of the objective lens sits about 10mm or 3/8" above the barrel. The scope barrel clears the peep sight ring with the aperture removed by about 1.5mm or 1/16".

My question is would I be better off with the lower rings and simply removing the rear sight ring when I use the scope?
I am not a big fan of loosening and retightening screws if not necessary.

I like to go as low as possible and would remove the rear sight completely. Just so you don't have to take the scope off and put the rear sight back on it is better to buy a second 10/22.

Yeah, that is kind of where I see this heading. At the price they are a bargain. I like the versatility of having one rifle that I can easily switch from scope to peep. But don't like removing things if not necessary. I like the Weaver quad locks but haven't found a set in low. Just mid and high, the high is only 8mm from the top of the rail to the bottom of the scope tube. The mid is about half that. So I am thinking these rings will go back to Walmart and I will get the mid size and see how that works.

I prefer the older Weaver rings that only take two screws on one side and have a slip lip on the other side. You can get these in low. This is a newer set as the older ones have the larger mounting screw on the side.

That is why GOD made a inch pound wrench for gunsmith to use if need . See the paste but the Weaver Quad ring don't need it .
A drop of blue loctite on the bottom of the scope ring saddle will hold any hard kicker from moving in any scope ring .

I use a torque driver all the time. Long ago I learned not to trust my judgment.

Plain Jane goes Blonde

I decided to keep the finish natural and hand rubbed 5 coats of tung oil. Then topped it off with two coats of finish wax. I like it, she shines and feels great. The pics are good but don't do it justice. When we get some dry and warmer weather I will break out the real camera and get some better natural light shots.
I put the weaver mid height rings on it and the front of the scope just clears the original rear sight. But if I move it back any it hits. I am going to remove it when I get a blank to fill the dovetail. The rear of the scope just clears the back end of the rail where the peep sight would sit. I like the height of the scope.

I like it. Looks like the rings on it are about right.

I can't wait to shoot it. I am not sure yet if it needs to come back a little but the front of the scope is just a hair in front of the old rear sight. I will have to remove the sight in order to move it. I can't move the scope any further forward. Unless I remove the Williams rail and put the stock one back on.

I would take the barrel sight off as its not needed. Close your eyes and shoulder the rifle and then open your eyes. If the scope is not in the right position then adjust it. Keep doing this until it is in the correct spot everythime.

I took her to the range and sighted in the new scope!
I bore sighted it at home before leaving for the range and was pretty sure it was good but took the bore sight laser with me just in case. I didn't need it at the range, windage was dead on all I had to do was adjust elevation up ten clicks at 25 yards.
The Nikon is a great scope, clear and bright. This is a great little rifle and I am so looking forward to finding a good outdoor range so I can sight it in at 50 yards and try my skill shooting out to 75 and 100. Just to see how close can I get to what I am aiming at.

All of these shots were seated using the Bipod and shouldering the butt stock.

These were My first shots at 25 yds. Started from the bottom and moved up a few clicks at a time. Went a little high with the last shot and went back dow a couple of clicks.


I was very happy with the next 3 rounds even though one went wide right.


I spent a little more time poking holes in the rest of the little bowling pins then stuck a 2" target spot on and used my last 15 rounds on it. One got away high then the next 9 made a nice group. The final 5 are the low group.
