I am going to suppose you have a 1913 picattinny rail correct?

Contrary to what they will sometimes tell you weaver and pica tinny are different (weaver is wider and putting a piccatiny scope mount on a weaver rail with break it)

The midway add says piccatiny and the brown ells does not specify. generally i think its a sage bet they are piccatiny rails. The sad part is theres no real way to know by their adds

I would order it then put them on your rail.

The black rail in the pic is a weaver rail. and the tan is 1913 piccatiny.

I wrenched the ring pictured on and left it tight (was not ideal but i didn't know better at the time and learned all this when i removed the scope from the weapon)

note the way it doesn't all lock up nice and neat. If this happens the you have a weaver rail and need weaver rings, but this is very unlikely it should lock up nice and clean to your rail.

just don't force anything and you will be fine. It should tighten up hand tight.
