I am building my first 289 in fifteen years. And cannot seem to remember exactly how the rings are oriented. Does the inner compression ring(2ea) beveled shoulder point upward or downward? One of the compression rings has a dimple, does it go on the top or bottom. How about gap spacing in relation to each other. I use to know this VERY important information but have forgotten. Can someone please help refresh my memory? Thanks

The box should have a sheet telling you how to install the rings. There are all kinds of bevels and shapes available.

The dot usually goes on the top side. Gap spacing will depend more upon personal preference. I space them equally but then who says they won't move once they are installed? Getting them right side up is more important than the spacing.
