How do you mount a scope to this particular air rifle?  It doesn't look like it has any rail system or Picatinny rail on it.  Here is a link to look at the air rifle.  Sorry if this is a super newb question but I am really excited to learn more about this and appreciate you more experienced shooters advice!

Thank you guys in advance for any advice!

Look up "how to mount a scope to an 11 mm dovetail rail". Look for a description that applies specifically to air rifles.

Dovetail also ahead of the mag......one ring ahead of the mag...one well behind the mag opeing...and it pretty well works with any standard length scope in medium rings.

You found the video I was hoping you would find. Who would ever know there is an arrester pin? The follow-up video on sighting-in is good insight into that topic too. Have fun with your new air rifle!

Can't think of why you'd need an arrestor pin for a PCP....it won't come with a place to use one if you did want one.  Really doesn't have the vibrational stress of a springer.

 

The short section ahead of the magazine will also be grooved...full sized scope will usually use that spot for the forward ring.  It's more of a "side saddle" type magazine, with most of the height NOT over the center of the action, so scopes can be mounted a bit lower than the picture would lead you to believe.
