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.

I just bought a 4-12x40 trophy xlt rifle scope with an adjustment of numbers on the bell. What is it?


That is a parallax adjustment. You set it for the distance you are shooting at. It appears to be marked in both yards and meters. This adjustment assures the reticle does not appear to move when your eye is moved slightly from side-to-side. Set it for 200 and look at a target at 50 and move your head very slightly side-to-side and you will see the difference.

Change the front sight on a mossberg 500 zomie


Don't. Change the barrel instead. You can buy a new/used barrel for the price it will run you to change the current one. You can buy snap on fiber optics if you, though. That'll only run half as much as a barrel.

I bought a used scope with no manual. On the front of the scope it turns like the back but it has ranges on it do I need to know what range I am shooting for the rifle to be accurite


Take the bolt out of the rifle so you can sight down the barrel to the target. Get the target bullseye in the center of the barrel. Now look through the scope to see where it is. Adjust the windage and elevation screws to get the cross hairs on the bullseye. Look through the barrel several times to make sure the gun did not move off the target during the adjustments. A concrete bench with sandbags is best to use for this.

My elevation and windage adjustments aren't moving my scope. I shot 4 times and my group is 1 inch. Problem is I adjusted my scope between all 4 shots. I'm consistently shooting 7 inches high and 3 inches...


This can only be due to a "broken" scope. To be sure, you can put your gun in a vice (cushion it) and put the crosshairs on a fixed point. Without moving the gun, crank the adjustment knobs a good 10-15 clicks in one direction each, and see if the crosshairs move from where you had them pointed.
If they do not, the scope must be replaced. If they do move, perhaps you should try adjusting the scope quite a bit more between shots.
The best way to sight it in requires a helper. Fire one shot with the crosshairs on the bullseye. Then, without reloading, put the crosshairs back on the bullseye, and have a friend adjust the knobs until the crosshairs move to the ACTUAL point of impact of that shot. It is essential NOT to move the gun while doing this.
This method allows me to sight any gun in with only 2 shots (and a few for confirmation, of course). Best of luck!

Yesterday I purchased a Bushnell Banner 4-12 x 40mm scope and mounted it on my RWS model 48 air gun per the scope mount manufacturer's instructions. After shooting my gun 4 times the cross hair broke and...


Paul,

to me it sounds like you have unfortunately been the victim of a manufacturers defect. the unique thing about shooting spring based airguns like your RWS and my Gamos is the effect of the recoil. it's different from traditional cartridge rifles but will never really be sufficient to ruin your scopes especially a bushnell. For now i would try to return your scope to the store you bough it from if that is within their returns policy. if not call bushnell at (800) 423-3537

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello,
I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.

it sounds like the cross hairs are moving i had this problem and it was the sight not the rifle check that the mounts are secure usually one of them will slip out or the guide if it is secure then it is the scope thats the problem return it if u can if u cant it can be repaired but this can be expensive and you cant do it yourself cus it has to be recalibrated sorry i couldnt be any more help it is usually the shock that moves the cross hairs take it to a shop and they will try it for you and tell you what is wrong also check that the screws holding the rifle together are secure because it happened to me once that one of the screws had broke and was allowing the rifle to move slightly so when i lined the scope up and fired it moved and then it put the sight out try this but a rifle shop should test it for free and tell you what is wrong they will put it in a vice and fire it so then they no the gun is in the same place when fired then they will no wether it is the gun or the sight but i would say it is the sight but before you buy another check all the screws are ok and none missing hope this is some help.....................

Sighting in red dot shotgun scope


Load your gun up and when you can shoot it, aim with your new glass(Scope) and lay out a group of three slugs, not buckshot, (i'm assuming your shooting a shotgun). Then use some trial and error to tighten your dot to your grouping. I don't blame you for the confusion, but normally, most scopes set up for this adjustment pattern are moving your target according to the knobs, not your crosshairs or dot. Another option you have is to buy a laser bore sighter. then you can play with adjusting your scope for in the field or wherever with much more comfort when you need to. You can find them online at walmart or almost any sporting goods store these days, yes they save ammo and yeas they save time, but i still shoot to make sure i'm dead on after using mine.
