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
