I'm missing five (5) Nikon rifle scope ring screws.

I would like to purchase a quantity of Nikon rifle scope ring screws. The rings for the Nikon ProStaff (3-9 X 40) Matte BDC) are now missing in action. Where might I locate these ring screws? Thanks...

I have 2 scopes that wont hold zero both are6-25x56 #1 -no3301 #2 0n03317


A better description will get you a better answer.

Many of these problems are caused the the mounting system. if you have the same problem with 2 different scopes on the same rifle, check there first:

Tighten mount screws - 20 inch pounds torque, use blue locktite
Tighten ring to mount screws - 30 inch pounds torque
Tighten ring screws - 15-20 inch pounds torque

If all is tight, you may need to lap your rings to get better ring to scope contact and increased clamping friction. Go here for an appropriate tool.

Hope this helps

Point of impact shifting 3-4 inch groups at 100 yds rifle shot exc. prior to this. tried a good tip hump, tried free floating, and problem still exists.


Basic things to check:

Scope base screws - make sure they are tight. 30 in/lbs or so.
Scope rings - make sure they are tight and grip the scope securely. 15 - 20 in/lbs for steel rings.
Scope attachment screws - tighten securely.

Change in ammunition?
Change in rifle rest technique? you should be resting the stock on your rest, not the barrel.

started using a sling? this can change POI.

Is your bore clean? Use a copper remover after your normal cleaning process.

Check the barrel crown for damage.
Check the action mounting screws for proper torque.

Hope some of this helps!

The magnification adjustment ring on my Gamo Whisper worked fine at first, then was stuck between 3X and 5X. Now it is free again but the scope is not focused on the 3X and 9X settings, but is clear on 5X...


I'm not familiar with the scope, is it an air rifle scope? One stroke type? If not, the backwards recoil of the air rifle is tough on a normal scope, they aren't made for that type of abuse. They work fine with a normal recoil. That is why they started making air rifle scopes. I'm sure that the internals of your scope are damaged somewhat, you can take off the eyepiece no problem, you might find something in there, loose screw, missing screw, you never know, don't get too carried away with the dis-assembly, you'll never get it back together. It sounds like the magnification ring is messing with the focus of the eyepiece. Might just need some oil. Hope this helps.

My banner scope in 4 to 12 wii not hold zero


I'd start by looking at the mounting bases.
First tighten the scope ring screws to 25 inch pounds, then loosen and remove the rings from the base(s) while still attached to the scope.
Back out the base screws one at a time, apply low strength thread locking compound and tighten each to 25 inch pounds.
Remount the rings/scope to the bases tightening till snug but not overly tight and sight-in the rifle.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Is this going make diffirents in at the Range or on the hunt?


Your problem is in the bases/rings. Remove the scope from the rings. Lay a straight edge in the bottom of the rings. The straight edge should touch both rings equally. If i understand you right, you have run out of adjustment up. If so, there will be a gap on the front ring. Verify that you have the correct bases for your rifle first of all. Then, depending on the rifle, you may be able to swap the front and rear bases/rings and correct the problem. Check alignment as above. NOTE: After rings are corrected, re-center scope elevation. Turn elevation screw on scope one way untill it stops. Count the clicks as you turn back to the opposite direction. Devide the clicks by two. Turn back the other way by that number. Your scope is now centered. Test fire at 25 yards. When close to zero, move back to 100 yards and fine tune.

Cross hairs canting to the left..how do i recenter the recticle?


From your short description, it sounds like the Horozontal (the ELEVATION) reticle is canted to the left. If that IS the case then do this;
Sand bag the rifle on what you know is a level and firm surface. The rifle MUST be level itself. You can use a small level to determine this.
Without moving the rifle, look through the scope and determine if indeed the horozontal or ELEVATION reticle is indeed canted. The reticle should be LEVEL in relation to the ground and the rifle itself.
If it still appears to be canted, loosen the set screws of the scope ring caps (Not the scope mounts) and while looking through the scope, gently rotate the barrel of the scope clock wise until the Horozontal reticle appears to be now level. Re-tighten the scope ring caps and look through the scope again to make sure the Reticle is still 'level'.
You must now make sure that your scope is still 'zero'd'.

IF the issue is something other than what I have assumed from your description, please send me a msg. with more detail and I will be able to resolve whatever issue you are having. Include the 'Brand and model', plus the power of it, and the brand/model/cal. of the rifle the scope is mounted on.

Good luck. :)
