Nearly all telescopic sights have adjustments, to move the point of aim so that it is the same as the point of impact of the bullet. These adjustments are in structures called "turrets" and nearly every scope has two, at about the midpoint of the length of the scope tube. If the scope is mounted correctly the turret at 3 o'clock (the shooter's right) adjusts "windage," the left/right movement of the point of aim, and the turret at the 12 o'clock position adjusts "elevation," the up/down movement of the poi.
The actual dials that make the adjustments are under screwed-dwon covers to protect them. Remove and reinstall these covers very carefully. They have fine threads and are easy to cross-thread if you're not careful.

Your Center Point has a third turret, at the shooter's 9 o'clock position. This is the switch that turns the red or green crosshairs on or off. The battery is under the cap for this switch, which probably has the CP logo on it. On my CP, the battery is a common coin battery, size CR2032. To access the battery, hold the switch still and carefully unscrew the cap with the logo. After that, it's just a matter of putting in a new battery, with the correct polarity (+ or -), just like in a flashlight. Once more, careful when screwing the cap back on.

SOURCE: siting in scope 2 ft hi at 25 yds no adjustment

well at 25ft you will run out of drop, its all down to how high the scope is above the barrel when its fitted to the rifle a 30-06 should be set up over 100 yds and shooting out that far it will be shooting low,,your rifle will shoot right out to 1000yds so you will get about 5ft drop out that far,,,and by the way,,,its very very dangers to discharge your rifle into a sand bag closer that 30 yds,, you may well get hit by a bit of the bullet jacket being striped off the bullet and coming back at you so done do it, right! shoot it over 100yds
however if its still shooting hight at say 50yds the only way to drop the point of aim is pack out the front of the scope mount with a strip of 35mm film slip it under the front ring (not the eye end) and sit the scope on it then do up the screws to nip it up this will lift up the front of the scope and it will shoot lower,,also if you were to put a strip under the eye end it razes the point of aim, i do this often for the members of my club on much biger rifles than 30-06's
and they dont drift or move off aim its a cheap fix, or you need a new mount?

SOURCE: I need to replace the battery on my centerpoint

I'm not sure which model you have but the most common battery location is under the reticle switch on the ocular lens housing, you have to hold the base of the switch with one hand and turn off the cover with a coin in the other hand. The most common battery for these scopes is a CR2032 button style battery.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

I have a center point scope, 4x16x40 with illu. rec. and it has moisture in the eye piece, it was bought at wal mart about 6 months ago and I lost the reciept, now what can I do to have it fixed or...


You will need a good size clear plastic bag or a zip lock baggy or both, the zip lock needs to be large enough to put the scope in so you can close it up but still work on the scope. This will all make sense in a bit. You will need a good hair drier, and bit of vaseline. If you can get your hands on a tank of paint ball gun propellant (gas) all the better. Now heat the scope tube till warm then remove the eye piece you look through. heat this eye piece until you think all moisture is gone. Clean it as best as you can. Now put the scope and the eye piece in the bag, add a little vaseline to the threads be careful not to get any on the inside glass just on the threads. Put some of the gas in the bag to balloon it out and seal it up, but leave room so you can put the eye piece back on the scope tube. The gas should stay inside the scope tube and keep any moisture out. You are drying out and re-pressuring the scope. This will work even with out any gas but may only last 1-2 years or could last the rest of your life. Good Hunting.

Unable to use scope because I lost the manual. Don't know how to install the batteries.


There should be a battery compartment on the left side, it holds one of those flat 2032 or other nickle size batteries. I think the battery scope is the one with the red and green dots in it. Hope this helps.

I am trying to bore sight a rifle with a center point 4x16x40 and i run out of adjustment to get the lazer to align with the cross hairs


When bore sighting you need to adjust in small steps and "TAP" the bore or the main body of your scope to cause a golt, as when shooting your gun it will kick and cause the scope cross hairs to take their set.  Tap it with a med sized screw driver handle. Make a small adjustment and tap it, adjust and tap.

Elevation is set at lowest setting and i'm still


You can try to add a small shim such as one piece of black vinyl tape under the scope in the front mount this will cause your point of impact to go down and give you more adjustment for the up direction. worked fine for me on a .22
