On the Mark III COMPETITION TARGET MODEL pistol, the rings fit the removable base (A07000), which is attached as described above. Make sure the scope base screws are tight before attaching the scope ring assemblies!
Iron sights can be used with the scope base mounted on top of the receiver, so removal of the base is not normally necessary. Three "filler" screws (Part No. B-83) are provided to fill the scope base screw holes if the user decides to remove the base.
On the underside of each mounting ring assembly there is a locating "tab." By reference to this "tab," the mounting ring can be assembled to the scope so that the tab will fit correctly into the recess on the top of the receiver.
Disassemble one ring and reassemble over the scope body between the turret and the eyepiece so that the clamp nut (D-73) is positioned to the right of the scope.
Disassemble the other ring and install it on the forward section of the scope tube with the clamp nut positioned to the right of the scope. Install the four top screws. Again, do not tighten.
Assemble the rings to the scope base with the locating "tabs" engaging the recesses in the top surface of the base. Tighten the clamp nuts so that the rings are locked to the semi-circular cuts on the sides of the scope base. Rotate the scope until cross-hairs are aligned properly, and slide scope to desired eye relief.
Then tighten the eight top screws a bit at a time to grip the scope body. Sight in according to the directions with your scope.
