Service | Scope Mounting
No job is too small. We like to help you when and where you need it. If you are unsure of anything, contact us and we'll be happy to give you guidance and instructions. If a job is beyond your skill set, we can of course perform a lot of work at our fully fitted workshop at Alan Rhone Ltd, North Wales. You can send us your gun, or make an appointment to visit us.
What We Offer
There are many different types of mounts for your scope, some are straight forward using 'off-the-shelf' parts, others need a little more fine tuning or even custom made parts such as fitting claw mounts. We have expert knowledge of most rifles and configurations to be able to fit your rifle scope properly and correctly. With experience in scope mounting for many rifles over the years, when it comes to getting the job done, we know best. With a wide range of hardware available from Recknagel, Contessa and Ziegler we stand a good chance of being able to mount your scope. You can see our range of parts we supply in the products section, and most of the time the parts are made specifically for your rifle so you can mount your scope simply and professionally at home.
Mount Your Scope Properly
We see people with a brand new rifle costing a couple thousand pound, with a brand new top of the range scope, then they buy poor fitting, low quality mounts to mount the scope with. This doesn't make sense to us, and we encourage people to go for something with better quality and a much better fit. This will result in having a fit you want, rather than a fit you have to put up with. Get it right 1st time.

Measure for the Correct Height
One of the most common questions we get asked is: What height parts do I need? This is a simple method of measuring you can do at home, and does depend a lot on what rifle and what scope you have. We have put together some step by step instructions on how to measure for the correct parts when scope mounting.
