    Scope mounting question

    I was wondering if any member has ever come across this before.
    Bought a new gun ( collect tomorrow ) bought picatinny rail for it, bought Warne scope mounts 1 inch from AllThingsShooting ( thanks )
    Went to check mounts are okay for scope tonight in preparation for tomorrow and found this

    Scope is a Schmidt and Bender 6x42 (old type ) imported from Germany and Made in Germany
    Although the caliper says 1.026 it should be 1.020
    Don't like pinching the scope
    Any thoughts
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Looks like you have a 26mm tubed scope not a 1" tube. Warne do not make rings in 26mm. I had a simiar problem so used a set of 30mm rings with reducer inserts. You can get a set of 26m rings from Alan Rhone that will fit on a picatinny rail but they are not cheap (about £100).
    Do not be tempted to force 1" rings on a 26mm scope in spite of what some people say.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Burris rings with the plastic insert will fit ok.

    Why should it be 1.020"?

    26mm = 1.0236. Try doing the conversion sum so 0.0024" would be within manufacturers tolerance one would suspect.
