A scope is an integral part of any rifle. It is the link between your sight and your rifle, and you must determine the optimum mounting method for your needs. This tutorial will go over the best scope mounting systems for the Remington 700 Tarkov as well as how to maximize the performance of your rifle. We’ll also offer advice on how to choose the appropriate scope foundation for your needs.
Firearm fans have a desire for precision, but not everyone is willing to invest in the latest and best for several reasons, including affordability, doubt about their competence, and boredom created by a bulging gun safe. When a client drools over a rifle or optic designed for a task, or when you introduce new fine-tuned, long-distance rounds to your inventory, you can tell.
The new standard in gun sales may have made many consumers hesitant to acquire firearms, but helping them find and renew a long-lost gem capable of accuracy — often at a low cost — goes a long way toward establishing a return business. And there are millions of firearms ready to go, accumulating dust after being sent to a dark corner of the safe.
The amount of Remington 700s sold since its inception in 1962 — over 7.5 million in a variety of chamberings, including some perfect for precision work — is a classic example. Its M24 and M40 sniper rifle models have performed well for the United States military, and civilian variations have the same inbuilt accuracy.
The Rem. 700 base mounts aren’t as user-friendly as today’s 1913 Picatinny rails, although securing the bases can be tricky at first. Remember that millions of other bolt-action rifles utilize the same layout, making this easy upgrade or setup process a target-rich environment and an excellent opportunity to start a friendly optic upgrade debate.
Remington 700-style Bases
Rem. 700-style bases are available in two sizes: one-piece and two-piece. The latter is generally effective for both long and short actions. There’s a lot to be said about the former’s strength, but keep in mind that they’re designed to match either one or the other action length perfectly, not both. Before you begin, choose the manufacturer’s suggested version.
Examine the box to check that all necessary hardware is present. The four mounting screws are tiny and should be handled with care to avoid their sudden disappearance. Some manufacturers supply a tool for tightening, but if you have a torque wrench that reads in inch pounds, it’s always ideal to apply pressure evenly.
There are two kinds of rails you’ll come upon. A Picatinny rail, often known by its military specifications, MIL-STD 1913 or M1913, is the most popular these days. You could also come across a Weaver rail, especially on secondhand guns and some rimfire rifles. Weaver created this rail before the Picatinny, and though they are quite similar, there are significant variances, and their accessories are not compatible.
In the grooves on top of the bases, nicks, burrs, or scars can hinder the rings from sitting flush and solidly. Although they are uncommon in today’s CNC production, they do occur, so examine them before you start and avoid using anything suspicious. If required, thoroughly clean.
Examine the bottoms of the bases, which are somewhat shaped to match the receiver’s curve. Check that they are smooth and free of debris that might accumulate during transportation. Remove any extraneous material to ensure a tight and flush fit.
Sort the screws according to their length. The short pair will attach the tiny base, while the longer two will attach the thicker version.
Replace or empty the magazine, secure the rifle, and double-check that it is not loaded. Remove the bolt and secure the handgun in a cushioned vice or clamp.
Remove the previous base and/or scope if necessary. Remove any screws from the rifle and carefully clean both mounting surfaces. Once again, a flush fit with no obstacles is essential. Blow out the screw holes with canned air just in case something falls in during shipping or old-base removal.
Apply a little quantity of the thread-locking substance to the mounting holes if the manufacturer recommends it. Avoid overfilling by not going overboard. Wipe away excess with a soft cloth.
The distance between the holes on each base varies, making proper placement on the receiver nearly impossible. Locate the position of the base, insert the correlating screws, and carefully secure it in place.
Hold the base firmly in place and tighten it to the manufacturer’s requirements. Don’t overtighten, double-check to make sure everything is snug, and your customer should be happy with years of dependable service – from that chronically disregarded gun, as well as your team.
Step 1: Gather Required Equipment
Borrow one Torque wrench, buy one, or just do not connect your scope at all (more on why later). This is a very necessary piece of equipment. A gun vice is ideal, but what you need is a device to steady your weapon, which may be accomplished in a variety of ways. A pair of sandbag-based bipods with sturdy support for your stock can also be employed. As a last resort, you may construct something one-of-a-kind, such as a pair of 2×4 bricks connected (you’ll have to be innovative with this one).
Step 2: Determine the Scope Mounting Hardware
There are many “mounts” for your firearm. The vast majority of scope mounts will be built with a scope ring and base configuration. This is most likely the most simple and common hunting rifle arrangement. This mounting gear is made up of a “base” component and a scope ring that screws into the base. The Talley lightweight alloy base/ring mount is a variation of the traditional base/ring layout in which the bottom half of the scope rings and foundations are one part rather than two distinct components.
A rail and scope ring configuration involves inserting a single rail, including a Picatinny rail, into your gun barrel and then attaching scope rings to the rail. Tactical and long-range shooters prefer this setup because it ensures that each scope rail and scope rings are on the same plane.
Step 3: Keep your Handgun Secure
To hold your rifle stable, you can use a gun vice, a bench vice with aftermarket rubber arms, or a homemade setup. If you’re not using a vice, make sure whatever you’re doing to stabilize your handgun maintains it stable even when you’re playing with the scope. Your firearm should also be parallel to the ground.
Step 4: Connect Your Rings’ Bases or The Bottom Half of Your Rings
Apply a little layer of oil to the bottom of a rail, such as a Picatinny rail, before installing it (to prevent corrosion), taking care not to get oil on the mounting screws.
If you’re utilizing a base/ring combination, just place the bottom half of your ring/base pair so you may set your reference level on the horizontal part of your bases.
Step 5: Adjust your rifle scope
Based on the hardware you use, there are also several techniques and approaches to installing your rifle scope. Some think that using a plumb line to level your sights is the best way to go, while others argue that a good bubble level would suffice. You should always choose a high-quality collection of courses, and you will never have any problems. Consider that for what it is worth.
This is important because if your scope is rotated only a few degrees left or right when you position your crosshairs on a target and your sight is not level, your gun barrel is canted right or left and you are firing slightly left or right, but you can’t be sure.
Step 6: Adjust the Reticle Focus
Once the sight has been properly mounted, you should adjust the reticle focus if it has one. Your reticle focus influences the clarity of the reticle picture when you look through your scope.
Each manufacturer’s reticle focus change will be unique. Find your adjustments, mount your weapon as if ready to shoot, and aim your sight towards a blank wall. With your eyes closed and the gun in shooting position, immediately open them and pay close attention to how the reticle appears.

Hey, This is Ebert Alberts. I’m the sole writer and creator of all the content you’ll find on this site. I’ve been passionate about shooting with scopes, red dot sights, and all kinds of gun optics for years now. And during that time, I’ve learned a lot – often the hard way. I’ve wasted thousands of dollars on scopes that turned out to be duds, and I’ve also found some real gems along the way.
