You will have to assemble the top half or the upper half of the ring onto the bottom ring and place it in the base, and turn the ring by 90 degrees with a non-marring screwdriver. As it is a press fit, it can’t be done by hand. Remove the top halves of the rings and place your scope in the half-way of bottom ring. The scope requires falling at the bottom of both rings.
Next, you are to fix the alignment tool between the ring halves and rear rings until the pointed tips of the tool are almost touching. To clear up sight in the riflescope, you are to remove the bolt of your rifle if possible and look through the bore at a target placed at least 25 yards away and adjust your scope so your crosshairs are pointing at the target.
Now if you like, you may lap your rings. Lapping polishes the inside of your rings. Remove any sharp edges on rings that can scratch scopes. Lapping bars are the most important part of the firearm workspace and are inexpensive investments for a lifetime.
To adjust windage and elevation, you may tighten them securely with a properly sized screwdriver or wrench. The adjustable rear base placed on a standard Leopold system has two opposing screws, these screws allow significant windage adjustments.
Finally, this is the time to level your crosshairs. It is full of fun in adjusting the crosshairs by eye. You’ll often have to loosen your ring screws to re-level several times till you are satisfied that the reticle remains straight. By tightening ring screws, your scope will move slightly one way or another. The top half of your ring screws need be tighten from one side to the other. Always try to keep the gap between the rings even. You need to tighten your ring screws properly but ensure the screws are not tightening enough to close this gap. Now riflescope is ready to shoot. Enjoy shooting

8/2/2010 4:38:28 PM EDT I originally had some problems with my 930 SPX. The front sight was slightly canted and the front sight was too low. I sent the barrel back to Mossberg 500 Accessories and they replaced the sight. My 930 SPX has eaten everything #7 shot, buck and Slugs from (Federal, Remington, Winchester, Hornady: both low recoil, regular and mangum) the only thing I had problems with is Fiocchi low recoil buck which is 100 FPS slower then other low-recoil rounds. FWIW, I paid $540.00 new on Gunbroker. I did some extra mods to mine: I lengthened and polished the forcing cone, had the barrel cut to accept Rem-chokes, bought Nordic Comp extensions (and currently waiting for my tritum LPA sights to come in). I originally wanted a Benelli M4 but after reading about BATF laws and the inability to add aftermarket extension tubes, pistol grips etc (because it is an import) I decided to go homegrown with Mossberg 500 Accessories. The Mossberg 500 Accessories may not leave the shop as nice as a Benelli or even a FN, but you can upgrade it to you own liking. After all the modifications, I still have less then a FN, and in my opnion a lot more versatile. ChickenDaddy10/18/2010 6:57:04 PM EDT
