Dont understand why on top of an side of scope setting there is ur ur instead of left right or up down

The "U" indicates Up on the elevation dial, and the "R" indicates Right on the windage dial. Turn the elevation dial clockwise to move the point of impact up, counterclockwise moves down. Similarly, turning the windage dial clockwise moves Right, and counterclockwise moves left. Here's a scan from the Zeiss Conquest manual:
Good luck!

What is an older powermaster 760 bb/pellet gun worth in ok condition but not holding air

well just seeing it's old might make it worth about 50$ for a collector to buy, but to actually use it might be worth about 10-20$ the best thing to do is 1. put it up in a local newspaper for sale or 2. go to and put it up for auction. Personally I'd say gunbroker, you have no idea how much money people make on there for selling things like Redryders and older guns.

My elevation and windage adjustments aren't moving my scope. I shot 4 times and my group is 1 inch. Problem is I adjusted my scope between all 4 shots. I'm consistently shooting 7 inches high and 3 inches...

This can only be due to a "broken" scope. To be sure, you can put your gun in a vice (cushion it) and put the crosshairs on a fixed point. Without moving the gun, crank the adjustment knobs a good 10-15 clicks in one direction each, and see if the crosshairs move from where you had them pointed.
If they do not, the scope must be replaced. If they do move, perhaps you should try adjusting the scope quite a bit more between shots.
The best way to sight it in requires a helper. Fire one shot with the crosshairs on the bullseye. Then, without reloading, put the crosshairs back on the bullseye, and have a friend adjust the knobs until the crosshairs move to the ACTUAL point of impact of that shot. It is essential NOT to move the gun while doing this.
This method allows me to sight any gun in with only 2 shots (and a few for confirmation, of course). Best of luck!

Need more adjustment......

it sounds like the gun shop did not mount it right if rings tighten on bases from both sides it needs to be evenly tighend on both sides as for up and down some times you need to add small shim to front ring or back ring this must be done some times not much but there is times just use a index card to shim it cut to fit the ring if ya would need more help contact me back hope this helped ya

Nikon monarch 3.3x10.44 model 6539

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

Sighting in red dot shotgun scope

Load your gun up and when you can shoot it, aim with your new glass(Scope) and lay out a group of three slugs, not buckshot, (i'm assuming your shooting a shotgun). Then use some trial and error to tighten your dot to your grouping. I don't blame you for the confusion, but normally, most scopes set up for this adjustment pattern are moving your target according to the knobs, not your crosshairs or dot. Another option you have is to buy a laser bore sighter. then you can play with adjusting your scope for in the field or wherever with much more comfort when you need to. You can find them online at walmart or almost any sporting goods store these days, yes they save ammo and yeas they save time, but i still shoot to make sure i'm dead on after using mine.
