The front ring is for adjusting point of impact at a given range,,,its called a "parallax ajustment" it corrects for the scopes inaccuracies over its full range say from 10 yds to 100 yds there a bit of a pain on a hunting rifle as you need to focus them every time and that slows down your shooting, when only a snap shot will get the kill you cant wate to mess about focusing the darm scope so i never use them on my rifles,,unless im target shooing,, or im snipping when i have time to take my shot,,,
(a head shot only!) only a parallax scope is spot on aim from 10yds to infinity

What size rings do I need to mount a weaver 6x38 rifle scope


Measure the diameter of the scope just in front of or behind the windage/elevation turrets. If it's 1 in. in diameter, you need 1 inch rings. The size of your scope tube determines the size of the rings you need.

Scope is out of focus


You focus on the reticle with the eye focus ring. You need a parallax adjustment ring to "focus" a scope. Your scope does not have this feature. Are you trying to use it at a very short distance?

I have an omark 44 drilled and tapped for scope have fitted a nighteater 8-32x44FC scope which runs out of elevation adjustment at 600 meters target,i want to shoot to 800 meters target,what can i do.


all you can do to raze the point of aim is to jack up the eye end of the scope with 35mm film strips or some thin shims,,,three strips of film will pick up the point of aim by miles

I have the 6x18x65LU atn rifle scope. I had the scope mounted to my 30-06 on two 1" weaver rails. the scope keeps sliding forward though the adjustable scope rings. I've been recentering the scope and...


be cearfull you dont crush the scope tube,,but try rapping a little strip of sticky rubber or plastic tape round the scope tube then nipping the scope ring caps down onto this,,,but i think your scope rings are worn out or the wrong size,,ie 30mm not 25mm
i have air rifle scope's on my 7.62/308 and on my 303 none of them move about at all and they have stayed on zero for years now!

How to set up a redhead red dot pursuit deluxe


You must have the correct rings for your base. If the scope has rimfire dovetail rings already attached, it should be easy. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the dovetail mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!).Loosen the clamps, place the scope on the dovetail mount and tighten snugly.

If it has weaver mounts, you will need to install a weaver rail to your receiver. Remove the 4 setscrews on the top of the receiver, install the weaver mount (use blue locktite and DO NOT TIGHTEN THE SCREWS MORE THAN 10 IN/LBS! Otherwise you may strip the threads in the receiver!). Install the rings in the weaver slots, tighten snugly.

How to readjust a weaver mount?


Make sure the nuts are on the same side of the rifle (both on the right OR left). The clamping mechanism can vary the centering of the scope if they are on opposite sides of the mount.

The other problem may be poorly drilled mounting holes on the receiver or scope mount, check these for alignment with your bore or barrel.

The dovetail groves are closer on a pellet gun rifle and they ca not close enought.


You probably have rings designed for a standard Weaver style scope base.... you need "3/8" groove .22 style" rings... available from your local gun shop.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Please give feedback!

Overtighten causes hazing,and adjusment problem


As a general rule of thumb, If you have normal Weaver-type aluminum rings, you tighten to 10 to 15 inch-pounds. If you have normal Weaver-type steel scope rings, you tighten to 15 to 20 inch-pounds. If it's something exotic and/or expensive, you're pretty much stuck contacting the manufacturer. Leupold Mark 4's require 65 in-lb, for instance.

Wiha makes two adjustable torque screwdrivers (one for lower torque, and one for up to 60 in-lb that are perfect for most any scope ring applications.

I have a model D-4 weaver rifle scope with missing adjustment par


Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP
