Welcome to our Scope Mounting Blog

Welcome. Weigand Combat Handguns Inc and WEIG-A-TINNY® have opened this blog to aid anyone trying to mount a scope mount for the first time. Even for the seasoned user there may be usable information here for the taking. We began scope mount production in 1986 and that gives us years of valuable experience that we can pass along to help you have a more enjoyable experience mounting your optic. There is nothing more frustrating to a shooter than having an optic come loose and loose zero. We all spend time and expend expensive ammunition zeroing our firearms. With a properly mounted scope mount your zero should stay put for years to come. Hopefully you will find the information you need to install your optic and also have an enjoyable time doing so.

    Hi Jack, the blog is a great idea. Love the topics so far. Question… What is your “old school” procedure for getting the cross hairs of the scope 90 degrees on center? I do not have a gun sled nor a laser bore sight. There must be a way to get the basic sightin of the scope before heading out to the range. I am guessing some kind of manual level sitting on the top of the scope turret?

    Thanks for the comment. First I install the rings and set the scope in the bottom half (of the rings). I set the ring lids on and evenly tighten both screws down, but loose enough to still be able to rotate the scope. I pick the gun up and sight on something then look at the cross hairs. I rotate them to get them to 90 degrees. After doing that I evenly tighten the screws down to the desired torque. I recheck the cross hairs and if all is well leave them alone. If it is off I will start over again by loosening the screws until I can turn the scope to readjust. This may seem a little clunky but it works well and can be done fairly quick after you have done it a few times. I hope this was of some help.

    God Bless

    Excellent fit, fast delivery and very high quality machine work on my scope mount. Holo-red dot on a Ruger Redhawk 7.5 with this scope mount…. One impressive looking setup, with high function!

    We live in the Olympics, where time to get on target is a major factor. Bears, big cats are cowering.

    Ya kick butt Jack Weigand great job!

    I mounted my new Weigand scope rings and base on my Ruger Super Redhawk 44 magnum. I was able to set the elevation, but I’m still shooting several inches to the right even though the scope is adjusted to the extreme left. I’ve offset the front clamps to make the base offset to the left. Is this the proper solution? I haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet. Thanks.

    Yes that would be how to adjust the point of impact using that mount. There are many variations in the cast Ruger revolvers. What can also be done is to offset the rear attachment the opposite way for a little additional point of impact shift. If it takes all of that adjustment to center it up, there is most likely either a mechanical problem with the revolver or scope. Let me know how you make out and feel free to contact us for additional help. We are here to help in any way we can.

    No I am sorry it will not. The Taurus Model 94 has a S&W style rear sight assembly. Our mount only works with the more standard Taurus rear sight with the horizontal pin through the top of the receiver that the sight pivots on.

    Greetings, as an “oldtimer” myself I have acquired a considerable amount of mechanical experience and after watching your how-to video I would like to install your TAURUS Mini, Scope Mount, on my Tracker 626. What I really need to know now is if you can recommend a vise to hold my revolvers and also my pistols that won’t break the bank.

    No I am sorry I have no suggestions on a particular vise. Just be sure you get a vise with soft jaws or make the jaws yourself. Good luck in your search.
