There are many reasons why it is important to mount a scope on an AR 10. One of the most important reasons is that it increases the accuracy of the rifle. A scope allows the user to see the target more clearly and to line up the shot more accurately. Additionally, a scope can help the user to identify the target at a greater distance, which can be important in hunting or tactical applications. Scopes can also help to magnify the image of the target, making it easier to hit a small target.

First, you will need to remove the dust cover and the charging handle. Next, you will need to remove the bolt carrier group. Once the bolt carrier group is removed, you will be able to access the screws that hold the scope mount in place. Use the drill and the 3/8″ drill bit to remove the screws. Be careful not to strip the screws. Once the screws are removed, you will be able to remove the scope mount.
Finally, you will need to install the new scope mount. Use the 1/2″ wrench and the 1/2″ socket to tighten the screws. Be sure to not overtighten the screws. Once the screws are tight, you will be able to install the bolt carrier group and the charging handle. That’s it! You have now successfully mounted a scope on your AR 10.
LET’S DISCUSS THE MOUNTING PROCESS ON AR 10 STEP BY STEP IN BELOW
1. UNLOAD YOUR AR-10 AND MAKE SURE THE CHAMBER IS EMPTY.
To unload and clear an AR-10, first, make sure the chamber is empty. Then, remove the magazine by depressing the magazine release and pulling the magazine out. Finally, pull the charging handle to the rear and release it, which will chamber an empty round.
2. REMOVE THE BOLT CARRIER GROUP FROM YOUR AR-10.
3. PLACE THE AR-10 IN A VISE, AND MAKE SURE THE VISE IS PADDED TO AVOID DAMAGING THE FINISH ON YOUR AR-10.
If you’re planning on mounting a scope on your AR-10, you’ll need to take a few preparatory steps first. First, you’ll need to find a good spot to mount the scope. Many people like to mount their scopes on the receiver, but you can also mount them on the handguard. Whichever spot you choose, make sure that it’s sturdy and won’t move around when you’re shooting.
Next, you’ll need to gather your tools. You’ll need a drill, a drill bit that’s the right size for your scope mounting screws, and a set of scope mounting rings. If you’re not sure what size you need, consult the instructions that came with your scope. Once you have your tools gathered, you’re ready to start drilling.
Start by drilling a pilot hole in the spot where you want to mount your scope. This hole should be just big enough for the tip of your drill bit to fit through. Once you have your pilot hole drilled, slowly enlarge it until it’s just big enough for your scope mounting screws. Be careful not to make the hole too big, or your scope could become loose and fall off.
Now, it’s time to mount your scope. Start by screwing the base of your scope into the pilot hole you just drilled. Once the base is secure, carefully slide your scope into the rings. Make sure that the rings are tight, so your scope doesn’t move around when you’re shooting. Once your scope is mounted, you’re ready to start sighting in your rifle.
4. INSTALL THE SCOPE BASE OF YOUR CHOICE ONTO THE PICATINNY RAIL ON THE TOP OF THE AR-10’S RECEIVER.
To mount a scope on an AR-10, first install the scope base of your choice onto the Picatinny rail on the top of the AR-10’s receiver. Then, attach the scope rings of your choice to the scope base. Finally, insert the scope into the scope rings and tighten the rings to secure the scope in place.
5. ATTACH THE SCOPE RINGS OF YOUR CHOICE TO THE SCOPE BASE.
There are a few different ways to mount a scope on an AR 10. The most popular way is to use a set of scope rings. This will allow you to easily attach and detach the scope as needed. Another option is to use a one-piece mount. This is a more permanent solution and will provide a more solid connection between the scope and the rifle.
6. PLACE THE SCOPE INTO THE SCOPE RINGS.
7. TIGHTEN THE RINGS ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS.
To properly mount a scope on an AR 10, first tighten the rings according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Next, use a spirit level to make sure the rings are level with each other. Finally, use a torque wrench to tighten the screws to the recommended level.
8. RE-INSTALL THE BOLT CARRIER GROUP INTO THE AR-10.
To re-install the bolt carrier group into the AR-10, first make sure that the gas key is properly aligned with the gas tube. Next, insert the bolt carrier group into the receiver from the top. Once the bolt carrier group is in place, push down on the charging handle to engage the bolt carrier group with the receiver. Finally, push the charging handle all the way forward and release the charging handle to lock the bolt carrier group in place.
9. LOAD THE AR-10 AND HEAD TO THE RANGE TO SIGHT IN YOUR NEW SCOPE!
Assuming you have already installed the rings and bases for the scope, you will now need to load the AR-10 and head to the range to sight in your new scope. It is important to make sure that the AR-10 is unloaded before attempting to mount the scope. Once the scope is mounted, you will need to sight in the scope by adjusting the elevation and windage knobs until the crosshairs are aligned with the point of impact.
