Scopes Are Mounted

Last night my brother and I mounted two scopes.  The first one, a Nikon 3x9x50 Pro Staff went on my .243 and the second scope was a Bushnell 3x9x40 Trophy Hunter, it went on my Stoeger shotgun.  The Truglo shotgun scope I was going to mount looked cheap and the eye relief was not good for the weaver 93 mount I had.

We used medium (blue) Loctite on all the screws to keep everything locked down tight.  The Nikon used regular screws and the Bushnell used allen screws.  They were both easy to install.  We also bore sighted both scopes using the laser Sightmark.

The next step is getting both rifle and shotgun to the range to complete the sighting in process.  I want to do this while the weather is still nice.
