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.....................

Is there an adapter available to attach my Nikon D40 to my Nikon RA11 spotting scope?

Sorry but your out of luck with that combination. Nikon only made SLR adapters for their Fieldscope line of spotters, none for the Sky and Earth series. The camera adapters are very proprietary so you won't be able to use another manufacturer's SLR adapter to solve this one.

I bought my Eagle Optics Denali spoting scope a few years ago and haven't used it much. I am now retired and would like to start using it. I would like to attach a Nikon SLR camera to the spoting...

Hi David,
Unfortunately, there isn't a good solution for adapting the Denali spotting scope to an SLR camera body. Your best option for tele-photography through that scope would be using a small, point-and-shoot type camera.
If you want more details, don't hesitate to contact me at Eagle Optics. I'd be happy to walk you through the process.

Hi, I am going to purchase a # 8411 Nikon monarch 2.5-10-42 rifle scope. I intend to mount it on a Colt AR 15. They tell me that I can mount this scope on the carry handle. I have always mounted as...

I think you will very unhappy if you mount it on the carry handle. I suggest removing it and getting a Nikon M-223 mount, YOu might also want to check out the M-223 line of scopes. The 3-12x42 with Rapid Action Turret might really surprise you. I don't have one freind who hasn't tried mine out and not bought one. Hard to argue with that. Check out Bart Nikon Pro Staff

Buy riflescope!!!! Which one????

Robert, I have the Simmons 6-21x44 MilDot # 511056 scope on my Savage model 10FCP Law Enforcement issue rifle. I think you should check it out. It has 90 MOA internal adjustment and you could get you something like a 15 MOA or 20 MOA tactical rail and push your adjustments out to 1000 meters!!!

Can't zero scope

lifetime warranty on that scope...i say take it back, get another and try again. if you are doing everything right, then i would say it is a internal problem with the scope. nikon's are a really good scope, but rule everything out.

RA11 A Spotting scope

I did a little research for you. Check your manual but I think your "eye piece" has a 12.5mm thread into the body of the scope. The FSA-L1 has a 15.2mm thread which goes in the place of and replaces the eye piece for the models it fits. Check that manual too. If you have calipers you can verify it too by measuring the male thread of each. What you need if you can find it is a 12.5mm (male) to 15.2mm (female)adapter. Becareful it doesn't change the focal length. Check with photo shops or on-line. I'll do a quick search too and repost if I find one.
