Question about Optics
Just installed a new scope on my Ruger Airhawk .177.It is a Hammer's
3-9x power.The issue is that when sighting in at 7.5 yards mygroups are 1.5 inches below the desired point of impact.I have the left,and right adjustment,or windage dialed in perfectly.I put 5 pellets into an area the size of a pencil eraser. The height dialis the problem.It's maxed out,so I can't raise the point of impact any further to hit my target dead on.I haveheard that springer,break barrel airguns usually have a slight downward angle of thebarrel,which is common from what I understand.The scope that came withthe rifle I had no issues with.I even tried installing the mounts from my original scope to see if that would solve the issue.No deal!if it makes a difference the original scope had a two piece scope rings,and the new one is a one piece mount.I just wanted to upgrade the stock scope..How can I correct this problem???
I had the same problem.. shimmed the rear ring by folding some aluminum foil and lining the whole bottom part of the ring. I think after all was said and done, the aluminum was about 12 slices thick. This gave me a little bit of elevation to play with.

I fixed the problem by shimming the rear scope ring.Now it's dead on! Hit a nickle at 60ft.!
