    Scoping a M-10 Ross

    Got my M-10 back from Oregongunsmithing.

    It now has a brand new .308 bore from the rusted nasty .287 that it was.

    Mine is the 28" bbled model w/o the flip up sight on the rear receiver ring.

    Thought long and hard about the best way to scope it. The front ring is round, the rear flat.
    Digging in my box of Weaver bases I came up with a #45 and #48. The 45 countour was almost perfect so I put a piece of fine emery, abarasive up on the front ring and countoured the base to the ring. The 45 was filed flat on the bottom to fit the rear ring.

    To get it right a long tube scope was mounted in 2 rings, the rings clamped to the bases, the bases set in place. The scope reticle was set at the center of it's range. With the rifle in a cleaning rest, 2 drops of gorilla glue was put on each base and a bore sighter installed. The rig was moved until it was close to centered left to right.

    Let the glue dry and recheck the bore sighter.



    If all is good, now you can drill and tap the rings and complete installation.

    I used a Weaver J2.5 with a 6X Litscherts converter as it mounts low and has a long tube.

    You can see the "308/280 Ross "being extracted.

    Nope, must be directed to your computer. It's not here.

    The rifle...that should be a shooter now. A nice clean new barrel inside? I wish we had facility to do rebore here.

    IMHO it would be a pity to D&T an original rifle now, but yours so your choice. Some have made up a cantilever mount to go into the express sight dovetail, as well as the dovetail on the bridge you used. Will be interested to hear how it shoots and what your load is.

    I don't have wall hangers. They get shot or they go away. Unaware of legions of Ross collectors out there fighting over them, especially a rebored one.

    Too old and too blind to shoot irons anymore.

    There's a triangle at the bottom of the screen (should be) beside the thanks button and info sniper and bookmark, you click on it and can give that page to the mods so they can block the perpetrator...
