Question about Nikon BUCKMASTERS 3-9X40 RIFLESCOPE MATTE
just wondering if you have any input on this particular scope. bought it new in box from swfa on 7/01/07. mounted it on a new in box winchester model 70 25 wssm med heavy. shot first time weekend of 10/27/07. cant get the systemt to hold any kind of acceptable group. dont really know if its the rifle or scope. hopefully not the rifle as i have several model 70s and no problems with them. first nikon scope though. just wanted to pick your brains.
It sounds like the cross hairs are moving i had this problem and it was the sight not the rifle check that the mounts are secure usually one of them will slip out or the guide if it is secure then it is the scope thats the problem return it if u can if u cant it can be repaired but this can be expensive and you cant do it yourself cus it has to be recalibrated sorry i couldnt be any more help it is usually the shock that moves the cross hairs take it to a shop and they will try it for you and tell you what is wrong also check that the screws holding the rifle together are secure because it happened to me once that one of the screws had broke and was allowing the rifle to move slightly so when i lined the scope up and fired it moved and then it put the sight out try this but a rifle shop should test it for free and tell you what is wrong they will put it in a vice and fire it so then they no the gun is in the same place when fired then they will no wether it is the gun or the sight but i would say it is the sight but before you buy another check all the screws are ok and none missing hope this is some help.....................
