That video you point out, was not an r26 but a r9. I dont think you can press an r26 with the scope on because of how short the bow is.Ravin recommends removing the scope because the crossbow is inserted on the Ravin press up side down.
If you were to block the press higher with a 2x4, then you can leave the scope on. I found this by doing an
internet search for "Pressing a Ravin 26 crossbow-youtube". Scroll down and select "Ravin crossbow pressing
unpressing precautions-You Tube".
All the best.
Works for R 9 10 15 and 20 but not 26 or 29.Put your press on a coffee table in front of a sofa. Then put the Ravin in the press with the butt of the crossbow on the sofa. Now your scope is in the space between them and will not hit anything while you work on your Ravin.
I do my Ravin R 20 this way because it is easy.
