Fixing a remington scope

I have a remington 6 X 24 telescopic sight that I bought back in the mid 70's. A few years after I bought it I found it would not adjust and since Remington no longer repaired their scopes they directed me to a shop in Denver Co. to fix it. They sent it back saying it was repaired but it wasn't. Sice I had already paid them for a job they did not do I did not send it back just to be charged again. Does anyone know of a repair manual available and any tools I might need to repair it nyself? Thanks so much..Gary R

Repair manuals will be extremely difficult to get if there was such a thing you're best hope would be an exploded diagram with parts list
the tools required are specialised so unless you want to make your own finding them will be difficult and expensive
buy a couple of old scopes and strip them down and rebuild them for practice

SOURCE: Sighting in my scope

That should be covered in your manual.

If not, give Nikon a call.

Or, repost your question on a Bulletin Borad such as at SWFA, where another user may have the identical scope.

SOURCE: scope won't sight in

Yes, rim fire scopes can't be used on a stronger firearm as the recoil will alter the internal mechanism. I fought with scopes of all types for years until I bought a used Leopold, never finding a better one! Hope you can find one of those.

SOURCE: Cannot sight in riflescope for elevation, adjustment is maxed out

Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.

most likely you will have to send the scope in to have this taken care of to contact bushnells customer service at 800-423-3537. press option 1. the age of the scope necessitates sending it in to have parts matched up.

SOURCE: scope needs rise about 4

this is all down to the scope/mounts,,,,to bring the bullet drop higher if the scope has reached its limit all you can do now is,,,
cut 3 bits of 35mm camera film to fit under the eye end of the scope,,,,undo the scope cap (eye end) and slip in the film under the scope so its pinched between the noun and the botom of the scope,,this will raiz the point of aim by at least 5 inches at 100 yds

Sorry front sight broke loose can this be fixed Remington 1100 ribed barrel


I assume this is a bead front sight.

The broken stub needs to come out (a few are pressed in, but most are screwed in).

Then a new one can be installed.

Brownells has replacement beads and the tool to install them:

Cannot focus model AP-78-9570 Bushnell Telescope


Is this your telescope?
http://www.binocularsdirect.com/Bushnell_Telescopes/dptsmzmyqcq.html

Can you try replacing the eyepieces on the side with the one on the back. Also if you "slightly" slide the eyepiece OUT does it come to focus?

I must tell you this is a very unusual design with a turrent AND another eyepiece on the back. Has the rotary eyepiece module become loose from the back of the tube? Can you push it in closer to the tube?

Other than forward or backward adjustment that's all the focuser will do.
