How to installing the Sidelok mount? It is a snap: line up the right side of the mount on the rail and then pivot it into place. That trips a small catch on the underside of the mount and releases the spring loaded clamp, applying just the right amount of pressure.

There’s nothing like looking at a website full of scopes and seeing dollar amounts ranging from $75 all the way to $3000 and not being able to discern much of a difference just by looking at the picture. As we stated earlier, most scopes look like black tubes, and it’s hard to tell solely from a visual standpoint what makes one scope more expensive than the other.
In its simplest form, the rifle scope is nothing more than a tube that houses lenses for magnification and a reticle for indicating your bullet’s point of impact, essentially a small telescope with cross hairs. The Main tube can be of either a one or two piece construction. Tubes are most often constructed of high quality aluminum, commonly noted as “aircraft aluminum”, but have also been built from titanium and steel. Aluminum is probably your best bet, titanium can be heavier and more costly, while steel requires more attention to prevent rust.
