    I have a BSA sweet 17, 2X7X35 all The black paint on the Tube has turned really sticky, when you touch the scope the paint gets all over your hand.

    The coating that BSA used on their scopes reacts badly with certain airborne oils and softens rubs off and looks scabby
    Only thing to do is to rub the rest of the coating off with high acetone nail polish remover

    Any scope will mount on any rifle using the appropriate mount and ring combination. It shouldn't be a problem to mount it on your savage.

    The head of set screw and the threads it follows on the elevation adjustment are banged up how can I get it out

    You might need to buy a kit that lets you drill out the top head and use the kit to back out the screw. These are available at most hardware store.

    My bsa sweet 17 6-18 is shooting about 2 inches high at 100 yards. on the adjustment turret it has an arrow that shows which way to turn for up. What is moving up? the point of impact relative to the...

    To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Make small adjustments tap the scope with a screwdriver handle to give it a shock, not to hard to help move the cross hairs and try to bore sight first. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

    Not really a problem. Just looking for a manual so I understand how all of the adjustment functions work.

    Have you tried contacting BSA directly? I searched for an on-line manual which you may have also.
    I didn't have any luck, but I do know they provide on-line manuals for many of thier products.
    E-mail them from the link provided below and you should get what you need.

    Here is the direct link to thier customer service contact info.

    hope this helps you!
