Most models, the battery is located within the knob switch that illuminates the reticle, and can be accessed by removing the screw cap/insert of that knob.
Good luck

Barska Excavator 8-32x50 scope. Where is the battery? I assume within the turret to turn on the light and for adjusting brightness? How is the battery cover removed?



  • This scope does not use batteries. It uses an IR or Illuminated Reciprocation. The light available is guided through a light track and illuminates the dot. The setting adjustment is used to allow less or more light through to illuminate.

Is the Zeiss conquest Z-plex scopes first or second focal plane?


Zeiss Conquest scopes are all second focal plane scopes. This indicates that the reticle, Z-plex in this case, is located on the second image plane.
  • Reticles on the second focal plane remain the same size regardless of the magnification setting of the scope.
  • When on the first focal plane, reticles will increase or decrease in size as the magnification is changed.

Adjustment


you have a gun mount problem its not a scope problem ,,,the scope mount is not a good fit to the gun and is off set to the barrel,,,
set the scope to center of its ajustment and then "pack out the scope with a bit of old 35mm film till you get it close to were you need it to hit then do the last bit of ajustment on the turrets,,this works for lift and windage

How do I use the range finding graph reticle from barska?


The IR Rangefinding Reticle is based on the military reticle that ranges tanks, believe it or not, front to back--whatever line the tank fits between will give the range to it...but the reticle has been adapted for use in some riflescopes. Trying to define the math behind rangefinding and downrange zeroing with multi-stadia reticles is complicated and takes some study to fully grasp the concepts, which is why I have a constantly available on-line article, entitled, "Tactical Ballistic and Ranging Reticle Analysis," right here--

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. :)

Windage and elevation not working barska 8-32*50mm


I doubt if there is anything wrong with your scope.
The Baraska model A10810 Reticle adjustments are 1/8 ( 1/8 inch) MOA (minute of angle).
For instance, Look at the top turret (The ELEVATION Adjustment Knob). You will see that there are little vertical 'hashmarks' all the way around the knob starting with a '0' then a series of the verticle hashmarks, then a '1' and another series of the marks, then a '2' and so on. YOUR scope will have 8 of those vertical 'hashmarks' between each 'number'. These little 'hashmarks are referred to as 'Clicks' or 'Minute of Angle' adjustments.
Now imagine that you are set up on the 100 yard line and you have fired a round at your target, say a one inch diameter dot or any size for that matter, and the bullet strike was one (1) inch LOW and two (2) inches to the RIGHT and of course you now want your next round to impact in the target dot.
To bring your bullets point of impact UP to coincide with your point of aim (you have your 'crosshairs or RETICLES centered on the dot), you will be turning the TOP adjustment knob CLOCKWISE, ONE 'click' at a time. EACH one of those 'Clicks' will actually move the horizontal Reticle UP (Elevation) or DOWN 1/8 of an inch at a time. If the bullets point of impact was 1 inch LOW, you would need to turn the adjustment knob clockwise Eight (8) clicks which will equal ONE (1) inch.
Now you must adjust the knob on the RIGHT side of the scope. This one is the WINDAGE Adjustment knob which controls the VERTICAL Reticle and moves the point of impact Right or Left. This knob will also have the 'hashmark' increments around its perimeter and like the Elevation knob each 'Click' will move the Reticle 1/8 of an inch but in this case the Reticle and point of impact moves Right or Left.
Remember the bullets point of impact was 2 inches to the RIGHT. This means you must adjust the Reticle or point of impact to the LEFT so that your point of impact will coincide with your point of aim and will be in the target dot. Turn the adjustment knob COUNTER CLOCKWISE Sixteen (16) Clicks. Keeping your POINT of AIM (crosshairs centered on the dot), your next round should be inside the dot and you can then fine tune it from there.
As you can see from this example, the Reticle (crosshairs)and point of impact does not travel very far at all inside your scope at the 100 yard distance so it is not hard to imagine that you thought they were not adjusting to get you on target, when in fact they WERE adjusting, but in tiny increments.
Now, as you create more distance between you and your target, these 'tiny' increments and point of impact will be larger as your distance increases. For example, at 200 YARDS each 'click' will move your Point Of Impact 1/4 of an inch right,left,up, or down. So if your bullet point of impact was one (1) inch low from the 200 yd line you would adjust your Elevation Reticle 4 Clicks to raise your point of impact in order to be on target. At the 300 yd line each Click will adjust the point of impact up,down,right or left, ONE (1) inch.
If you wish, I would be happy to walk you through the 'ZEROing In' of your scope and rifle even if you do not have a Zero Bore Scope. With-in about 9 rounds you can be hitting where you are aiming instead of 'chasing' bullet holes all over the paper.
If you are interested, respond back and I will be glad to assist you. Enjoy. :)
