In fact it does not hurt if you do it before mounting the first time. Just don't over do it. All your doing is cleaning ruff spots. I only do that if the rings show age.
lamerem wrote:DO you guys lap your scope rings? I ordered a pair of Weaver integral scope rings and need to know more of this lapping if it even needs to be done. I have checked the kits online and it looks like a $50 investment. Can I get it cheaper elsewhere? Gander Mountain offers mounting, bore sighting and ring lapping for $50. But, I don't know if they will do it on a scope and rings I bought elsewhere.
lamerem wrote:ok, excellent. so basically with these rings it should be aligned with the bore itself and just need tweaking via the dials on the top and side of the scope housing? So I don't need a laser bore sighter or to pay Gander Mountain $50?

Most wont because they dont know how, or their dont want to put the time into it. Your weakest link in a shooting system is your scope mount, rings & rings to scope. IMO ideal mounting system secures your optics to your firearm as low as comfortably possible, with the fewest parts necessary, more parts equals more chances for something to go wrong. IMO solid steel mounts, rings are the strongest less likely to go wrong. Another is I like going (doing myself)is larger on my base screws than the common 6-48 scope base mounting screws. I believe more "meat" holding your mounts are added asurance of no problems so I like going to drill & re-tap .146"-48. Like I mention your weakest link on your shooting system is your mounts, rings & rings to scope.
