Defective side mounting plate for B-Square Ruger Mini-14 scope mount. I'm pretty sure the side mounting plate I got with my Mini-14 mount is too short. While shooting the rifle without the scope screwed on the side plate fell off the rifle. Needless to say I was not happy. May also explain why we have been unable to get this mount to hold zero! Does B-Square stand behind their products or am I on my own to fix their short comings?

SOURCE: Ruger 10/22 Scope problem

This happens will all firearms. what happens when the bullet leaves the bullet is a decieving "rise" of the bullet. The reason for this is the Line of Sight (Scope View), angles down and away from the Line of Departure (Barrel). The bullet actually never rises and is in fact continally falling away from your rifles Line of Departure but because this is higher than the Line of Sight the bullet seems to Rise than fall to the set distance in the scope (i mention set distance and not zero because you can change your Minutes of Angle on your scope to increase and decrease range)

http://www.rifleshootermag.com/shooting_tips/ballistics_0303/

this is a chart that illustrates what i just said.

now that you understand that you should take a good read into Exterior Ballistics. this is the Mathematics of your fireamrs trajectory ( I say your firearms because your bullet's flight depends on the length of the barel which will vary from gun to gun) this science of shooting will teach you how to understand bullet Grain and Volume relations. understanding the Feet per second of your rounds and how the affects you. teach you about shooting in high pressure and low pressure environments and extremly windy environment.

now there is alot of math to all of this and its hard to find it all on the net and if your not that great at math you can do what i do bc im lazy and im not a sniper im just a hobby kinda guy. '

Sierra Infinity V 6 Ballistics Software. I dl'd mine off the net you might have to buy it depending on how resourceful you are. it is well worth the buy. You can punch in the daily variables (Barometric Pressure, Temp, Humidity, and Altitude) (of couse with your bullet as well) and it will give you a "Cheat Sheet" for those conditions stating Windage and Elevation adjustments per decided incriment (50 yrds is standard) then you take that to the range and (bring a laptop if you got it and arent embarrased (som1 might even help you tune in the variables) hope this helps if not ill check back in a bit to see how you did

Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP

Sounds like they are right. The cross hair adjustment mechanism may be defective. I'd call bushnell and see what they can do for you.

The plate that the mount screws to is loose how do i tighten it?


You mean the one you have pictured there? It has the big thumb wheel on it? It won't tighten up? Is it stripped? Or is the receiver stripped out? You could replace that big screw with a bolt, you would lose your quick detach, Or if the receiver is stripped, you'll have to get it tapped out, and get the new bolt anyway, going up one size. and using a fine thread. It can be a screw, with a slot head or an allen head. Hope this helps.

What that means is they are not mounted correctly. The scope mounts should be square with your rifle when fitted, when the scope is placed into the mounts, it should be turned to be square with the rifle.

Firstly, make sure you do not "cant" when you shoot. That is hold the rifle at an angle instead of vertical. Once you are sure that is OK, then put it into a vice using blanket or some other soft material to protect the stock. Get the rifle perfectly square using a spirit level. There should be a flat spot on the top of the action that you can use. Once this is achieved, you loosen off the scope mounts and square the scope up to your satisfaction. Once done, tighten the mounts up and then remove from the vice.
