Ok I did not really know where to put this so I figured this would be a safe location.

My products are these. I bought a Leapers 3-9X50 Full Size A.O. Range Estimating Mil-Dot Slide Wheel Red/Green Illuminated Zero Locking/Resetting Scope (long a$! name). With it I purchased a Matrix Tactical 25mm Scope Mount w/ QD Weaver Base. The Scope said that it has a 25mm tube so I figured the mount would work, but when I tried to set it up the rings did not clamp the scope firmly in place (it would spin around freely). I am wondering if this is a factory error or if I made a mistake.

It would help if you linked the scope. Assuming it's a 25mm tube, 1" or 25mm mounts would work. However, in my experience, all of the 50mm scopes I've had have used 30mm which is about 1.2" rings. So like I said, to give a definitive answer, a link would help us out 100%.

You can use the poor mans fix and electrical tape it...

Let me explain further...
If the upper clamp is able to be secured, meaning it attaches properly and screws all the way down but the scope still moves... just use some kind of filler
(ie electrical tape or any other kind of tape for that matter)

You can line the tape in either the rings themselves or wrap the tube.

I personally line the rings.. then trim off any excess.

If you have the cash, then I'd suggest buying new rings (preferrably take the scope with you to a shop and try before you buy).

If money is a bit tight -
I use bits of bicycle inner tube to shim oversized scope rings,
although any sheet rubber would do.
It gives a good tight grip and cushions any knocks the scope might get.

Edit
Get a ruler and measure the scope, then measure the mounts.
Decide which you want to keep (the scope or the mounts) and send the other back for a replacement in the right size.
Simple, done. Next!

Ok, um your new here. But let me say this to you as nicely as possible.

If you ask for help, dont ask others to do the leg work.

IE, post a link, dont tell people to find a web site, and then plug in your scope title, and then come back here and give you advice.

Make it easy for us to help you. In other words, help us help you.

And then for your topic. Yes, I would either return the item to the vendor, or I would modify it to work. I thnk the rubber idea posted above is the best one so far. Or just go buy new rings at Walmart.
