Why doesn't my scope come with mounting hardware?

In the Hall of the Mounting Rings

Every scope requires mounting rings to secure the scope to the rifle or handgun. So, why don't they come with this necessary mounting hardware? The answer is that there are too many potential applications, each of which is unique.

There are literally hundreds of different mounting rings, each designed for fitting a particular scope to a particular make and model of rifle or handgun. So you just have to mix and match.
