Question about Simmons 510513 3-9x40 Blazer Riflescope - Matte Black

1 Answer

Who is the manufacturer of the Cabela's Alaskan Guide 3.5-10x40 scope? I am having problems with it and not sure where to get fixed. Cabela's doesnt repair them. The crosshairs rotate a little when I turn the magnification dial.

I'm not sure but most probably, a rebranded chinese scope. as most are these days.

its not economically viable to repair these scopes if it requires a re-gas and re-seal.

if its under warranty, get it replaced or buy a new one.
to get it fixed would cost more than the scope is worth

In the process of zeroing the scope in I noticed that I can adjust the elevation of the scope up but can't set the adjustment down as far as I need to go in order to be sighted in. This is the first time...


There are a few things that it could be. Make sure you have the scope mounted with the elevation screw on top and the windage screw on the right side. Next, carefully check the distance of the scope from the receiver. If the mounts aren't exactly the same, the scope could be tilted upward. Try switching the front and rear mounts. Make sure you don't have either of the mounts on backwards. Make sure the scope is built for the caliber you are shooting.

If none of these fix your problem, Leupold scopes are guaranteed for life.

There are a few soultions to your problem.

for one the first thing you might want is your manual

Most manufacturers provide a mail in repair service. inorder to get into contact with these people,

There are also private repairmen / gunsmiths that will repair your scope. In order to locate one you really need to go to local shop and ask around if anyone knows some1. This can often be cheaper and faster than the manufacturer however more difficult to locate. Here is one i came accross you can contact on the phone or online and see what he has to say

I agree with you on that! I have a feeling they are either Nikon or Leupold sourced. The body is alot like green ring leupold ive seen but the lenses have a magenta multicoating on a lens surface which ive seen on nikon. I'm in the process of looking for the maker of them myself as I need an objective lens. I'm going to call the Cabela's Cust SVC number and see what they say. I've heard the new Euro styled binoculars are made by Meopta.

Scope


Follow these steps

1) Mount your scope.

2) Use a bean bag or rifle mount and make sure that your rifle doesnt move much from its original position throughout this process.

3) Aim with the scope and shoot at a large backstop which will allow you to see where your shot lands, where ever that may be, it doesnt matter at this point. Again, make sure your rifle doesnt move much when firing.

4) With the rifle in the same position, look through the scope and adjust the crosshairs over to where your shot landed.

5) The scope now sighted in with the rifle. Minimal adjustment may still be required but at least your well within the ball park.

Happy Shooting
