1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    Hi All.

    I have a new Simmons classic whitetail (WTC11) scope arriving in a few days and i want to mount it to my Benjamin Trail NP. Is it just a case of putting the new scope through the old mounts? Do i need new mounts/rings or anything? I've never really done this before, not properly anyway.

    Thank in advance.

    If the mounts are the same size then yes, just put it in.

    Make sure you set your eye relief right (distance from your eye to the scope) and then set the scope level on the gun either using a plumb line or by looking in a mirror and getting the vertical crosshair to intersect the barrel exactly.

    Then set your zero and away you go;)
