    Leupold IER Scout Scope and QRW Fitting Question

    My Marlin 336SS is nearly complete but I have potentially run into a snag and would appreciate some help.

    I purchased a Leupold IER Scout Scope (FX-II, 2.5x28mm) for my Marlin 336. I also purchased what I thought was the correct low style rings....Leupold QRW Low Rings, part 49854.

    Now that my rings are on the base, it seems like I have to force the top of the rings onto the scout scope tube--other rings I've used fit right on. That being said, the instructions say "Snap the ring tops over the maintube of the scope--one in front of and one behind the scope's adjustment turret."

    My fear is that I've already applied light/moderate pressure on the ring tops and it has nicked my scope. Is this normal? Did I order the wrong part? Or do I actually need to provide some pressure to make the rings pop on?

    Thanks.

    I have those same rings on my scope. They do need a little pressure applied and they will snap on just be carefil and they wont scratch your scope.

    Thanks. I just needed somebody else to say "all good" before snapping on. Did you use any felt or fabric between the ring and the tube?

    I just installed a scope with the same rings and they do take a little push to get them over the scope tube ! I looked after though and no scratches in my scope tube !

    Yep, I have a set of those and it does require a "snap" to get the top ones on the tube...

    Thanks for all the advice. Just my luck...I snapped the top rings on and scratched the finish. And I did it in a way where it can't be hidden. Advice for others....do everything in order the right way. I doubt there is any functional damage to the scope.

    I have those rings on a half dozen Marlins and they can scratch your finish if not careful. I usually use a little gun oil to help them on and install where they need to go.
