It also attached to the barrel, and the instructions warned strongly
that overtightening would detach and ruin the barrel.
If you can locate an OEM Sheridan mount ... use it instead.
The OEM mount takes into account the specifics of Sheridan design.

Here are a few photos that I found that illustrate the scope and mounting system
I used on my Racine Sheridan.

This is not my personal airgun.
But, it is configured almost exactly as my Sherdian was special ordered.
