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.

I have the 6x18x65LU atn rifle scope. I had the scope mounted to my 30-06 on two 1" weaver rails. the scope keeps sliding forward though the adjustable scope rings. I've been recentering the scope and...


be cearfull you dont crush the scope tube,,but try rapping a little strip of sticky rubber or plastic tape round the scope tube then nipping the scope ring caps down onto this,,,but i think your scope rings are worn out or the wrong size,,ie 30mm not 25mm
i have air rifle scope's on my 7.62/308 and on my 303 none of them move about at all and they have stayed on zero for years now!

Sight adjustments


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that very same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction.
If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

I have a 3-12 by 40 rifle scope made by tasco i dont have thewaranty paper work any more and the cross hairs wont adjust any more what do i do


i dont realy understand what you mean by "the cross hairs wont adjust" is it you have ran out of adjustment on the turrets? if so try packing the scope out with 35mm film under the body of the scope and reclamping it,,,or do you mean it just wont adjust?
the tesco rifle scope is a realy cheep scope its a throw away kind of thing if it brakes,,,,there only £50 or so,,,,if it was a £1500 scope its worth fixing

Rifle scope will not track with the adjustments


When you make your adjustment tap on the scope with a small screw driver handle a few times before you fire her. Work slow and tap as you go.

Adjusting Range on Redfield Scope


There should be a set screw or screw that you can loosen to make that adjustment. Once you have it where you like it, just tighten it back up and enjoy you ability to make those quick adjustments when needed.

Zeroing scope adjustment


First, adjust wind-age and elevation to center or zero position. Remove your scope from the gun and make sure that the scope mounts are aligned, this is critical. Purchase an alignment tool is necessary. Then remount the scope. The scope should seat in the mounts without binding. If it does bind, the mounts are not aligned.
Start sighting in at close range,10 to 30 yards, then move out to 100 yards.
