Today I suddenly want to ask a question...

When we mount a scope, the screws of the scope mount should be facing left or right?

Because screws on my red dots are facing left, I followed the same way to fix my scope mounts on the rail.

And is there anyone will put one facing left the other one facing right? Or more further, any difference that the front one to left and rear one to right or reverse... Etc...

Any situation related to lefty or righty?!

I think when we tighten up the mounts on the rail, there must be some stress to be put on the rail from the screws... So I think there must be some rules we need to follow when doing this...

I normally put the mounting screws or knobs to the left. Only because I am right handed and it doesn't get in the way of loading OR extraction on my firearms.

To the right or left for the nobs seems to be normal. Once the bases of the rings are mounted, place the scope in the cradles to see if the rings are in alignment. If not, then you can try running the locking screws to the other side, checking to see if that aligns them better, or one left one right. It is unlikely you should have them on opposite sides, as this clamping type of mount does torque & thus can put them out of alignment with each other.
If the rings are not aligned but are tightened down anyway, this can bend the scope tube as well as put the inner parts (erector tube, springs and adjustments) under duress.

Thanks for the info ~ no need to say sorry ~
