There are many reasons why someone might choose to mount a scope on a Savage Mark II. One reason might be for the increased accuracy that a scope can provide. Scopes can help shooters to better see and target their shots, which can be especially helpful at longer distances. Additionally, scopes can provide a higher level of magnification than iron sights, which can also be helpful for long-range shooting. Finally, many shooters simply prefer the look of a rifle with a scope mounted on it. Whatever the reason, mounting a scope on a Savage Mark II can be a great way to improve the performance of the rifle.

Let’s Know Disassembly Process
To mount a scope on a Savage Mark II, first remove the bolt and magazine. Next, unscrew the receiver cap and remove the barreled action from the stock. Then, remove the factory scope bases from the receiver. Finally, install the new scope bases and tighten them to the receiver using the screws that come with the bases.
Let’s Discuss Step by step
1. Unscrew the two screws that hold the scope base in place on the top of the receiver.
Using a Phillips head screwdriver, unscrew the two screws that hold the scope base in place on the top of the receiver. Be sure to remove the screws slowly and carefully, as you don’t want to strip them. Once the screws are removed, the scope base should come off easily. If it doesn’t, gently tap it with the handle of the screwdriver until it comes loose.
2. Lift the scope base off the receiver.
To remove the scope base, first loosen the screws that hold it in place. Then, lift the base off the receiver. Be careful not to lose the screws, as they are small and easy to lose.
3. Place the scope rings on the scope base.
If you’re mounting a scope on a Savage Mark II, you’ll need to start by attaching the scope rings to the scope base. Once the rings are in place, you can then attach the scope to the rings. Make sure that the scope is properly aligned with the bore of the rifle before tightening the rings in place.
4. Place the scope in the scope rings.
Assuming you are referring to the process of mounting a scope on a Savage Mark II rifle, the first step is to place the scope in the scope rings. It is important to make sure that the rings are properly aligned before tighten them, as doing so will prevent the scope from being able to move and adjust properly. Once the rings are tight, the next step is to attach the base to the rifle. Again, it is important to make sure that the base is properly aligned before tightening the screws. With the base in place, the next step is to attach the rings to the base. Once the rings are in place, the final step is to attach the scope to the rings.
5. Screw the scope base back onto the receiver.
Using a screwdriver, tighten the screws that hold the scope base in place on the receiver. Be careful not to overtighten the screws, as this can strip the threads or damage the scope base. Once the scope base is secure, you can proceed to mounting the scope.
6. Tighten the screws.
If you’re mounting a scope on a Savage Mark II, the first thing you need to do is remove the bolt stop pin. With the pin removed, you can now slide the bolt out of the receiver. Next, remove the factory scope bases from the receiver. To do this, remove the two screws that hold the base in place. With the screws removed, the base will simply pop off.
Now it’s time to install your new scope bases. Start by aligning the new base with the holes in the receiver. Once the base is aligned, insert the screws and tighten them down. Be sure not to overtighten the screws, as this can strip the threads. With the new scope bases in place, you can now mount your scope.
