Marlin rifles have a right hand twist in them,, they all shoot to the right,,,if you pack out the scope mount with a strip of old 35mm film on the right hand side of the scope body and reclamp the scope you should have the cross hair more to the right side

My rifle is out, 3"


The gun can be getting hot during your sighting in session. Heat from the reviver can throw your setting off, then as you adjust things get worse. Start and loosen the scope rings one at the time. Front first, and re-tighten, then the rear. Fire 2 shot groups, letting the gun cool some in-between each group. This way you can figure out if it is the scope loosing it's center or the mounts getting in a bind due to heat and twisting the tube. After each adjustment tap on the scope to set the cross hairs, again this will give you feed back, if the scope can hold it's center. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

How do i site in my Bushnell Banner 30x-9x scope?


i would start by supporting it on a table, if you don't have a bore sight look down the barrell or side of the barrell, holding it steady look into the scope. make them match the a spot on the wall, keep adjusting the scope until they match. this will get you close before you shoot. i would set up a target at 25 yards. set the scope close on left, right, up and down. move out to 100 yrds and shoot a 3 group pattern. let the barrell cool, make adjustments and shoot again. it should be set.

Windage adjustment will not adjust to the right - clicks but does not move the shot groups to the right.


if you have forsed the scope turrets you may have broken your scope,,,if the turret turns to the left set it to the center and change the scope mounts or pack out the scope mount with some strips of 35mm camera film 3 strips should do you,
pack out the eye end mount on the left side of the scope

Simmons aetec, put on muzzleloader to boresight and adjustments work in reverse.


It's a common misconception to think that you're moving the bullet impact on target, when in fact you're moving the scope's reticle to look where the rifle is shooting.... So if your shooting left of your target.. you want to move the crosshairs to the right.
Hope this helps, mark the Gunsmith

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

CAN NOT ZERO GUN


You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

I can shoot my centerpoint scope on my .22 and it


When adjusting a scope just move a few clicks at the time, after every few clicks tap the scope with a screw driver handle. Fire 2 rounds for group tap and fire the third round it should be in line with the 2. Keep that up till on target. Let the gun sit till cold and re-fire for grouping, 2 rounds, wait then the third. To keep shooting round after round can get the reciver warm enough to wedge the scope in its bases, causing your problem.
