What size rings do i need for this scope


Choosing scope rings involves the following considerations:
1. Get the right diameter. Most scopes are 1.00" in diameter, but not all of them. Measure your scope tube.

2. Mount the scope as close to the barrel as is practical. The closer the axis of the scope is to the axis of the bore, the less error is introduced by canting the rifle.

3. You must have proper eye relief. If you are shooting a high-power rifle, you need at least a couple inches between your face the the end of the scope to allow for recoil. This is less important for low recoil calibers. You must also be able to position the scope so that you get a full field of view when you mount it to your shoulder to shoot. Some rifles, like Ruger #1's are tricky to get right due to the shape of the action. Some rings are offset to provide additional adjustment room.

I have a Simmons Model ATV 4515 rifle scope. other


Your scope has 5 adjustments:
1. Eye piece focus - used to focus on the reticle.
2. windage adjustment - should be on the R side of the scope, adjusts lateral impact point.
3. Vertical adjustment - the top turret. Adjusts vertical point of impact.
4. Power ring - adjusts the magnification of the scope.
5. AO ring - Parralax adjustment - used to focus the scope at specific distances. Most markings are not exact, you should set it at the range you are shooting and fine tune focus when you look through the scope.

After sighting in the scope,I take a few more shots and have to readjust the scope.


This symptom is typically caused by slippage of the scope in the rings, you should tighten the ring screws to 15 inch pounds or so. Many ring sets are slightly misaligned or poorly machined.

If you continue to have problems, you may need to use a ring lapping/alignment tool (available from midwayusa, (http://www.midwayusa.com/Search/#wheeler%20scope____-_1-2-4_8-16-32). This will increase the surface of the ring that actually contacts the scope, thus increasing the clamping force and friction to keep the scope in place during recoil.

Don't know what type of rings you have, but Leupold makes excellent rings. I have not found it necessary to lap these rings to date, even on my 45/70.

Other issues may include loose mount screws or loose ring to base mounts.

Mount your base screws using 15 to 20 inch pounds of torque and blue locktite. Torque your ring to base screws to 30 inch pounds or so.

If the scope is slipping in the rings, a quick temporary fix that might help is to apply rosin to the inside of the scope rings to increase friction. I have also used a dab of rubber cement as a temporary fix.

Took my Pentax 4-12X 40mm rifle scope mounted on a Remmington 7mm mag bolt action rifle to hunt antelope in Namibia, SW Africa. First shot on a fine kudo blew up his heart and broke off-side leg bone....


you got it in one there,,,its all down to "head butting the scope"!
your head **** has pushed the eye bell up the scope body and has pinched or locked the power adjuster ring to the scope body
you have only two choices send the scope off for repair,,or buy a new scope,,,done even think about trying to fix it as you cant,,
it will need a strip down and then a re-gas (to stop it foging up)
so if you took it to bits the scope would be distroyed

The magnification adjustment ring on my Gamo Whisper worked fine at first, then was stuck between 3X and 5X. Now it is free again but the scope is not focused on the 3X and 9X settings, but is clear on 5X...


I'm not familiar with the scope, is it an air rifle scope? One stroke type? If not, the backwards recoil of the air rifle is tough on a normal scope, they aren't made for that type of abuse. They work fine with a normal recoil. That is why they started making air rifle scopes. I'm sure that the internals of your scope are damaged somewhat, you can take off the eyepiece no problem, you might find something in there, loose screw, missing screw, you never know, don't get too carried away with the dis-assembly, you'll never get it back together. It sounds like the magnification ring is messing with the focus of the eyepiece. Might just need some oil. Hope this helps.

Overtighten causes hazing,and adjusment problem


As a general rule of thumb, If you have normal Weaver-type aluminum rings, you tighten to 10 to 15 inch-pounds. If you have normal Weaver-type steel scope rings, you tighten to 15 to 20 inch-pounds. If it's something exotic and/or expensive, you're pretty much stuck contacting the manufacturer. Leupold Mark 4's require 65 in-lb, for instance.

Wiha makes two adjustable torque screwdrivers (one for lower torque, and one for up to 60 in-lb that are perfect for most any scope ring applications.

RIFLE SCOPE STUCK ON 8x POWER


If the scope's minimum power isn't 8x then it's broken. Call the customer service rep of the company and see how you can return it. Depending on the warranty they may fix it or replace it. I'm not familiar with Balfor as I don't shoot BB guns. You can move the ring around a bit, see if something loosens up, but don't force it.
