How to disassemble my bushnell sportsman rifle scopes coz i wnt to clean it


On my Bushnell scope I have an adjustable angle ring that will bring in the view, it is held in place with 1 screw. remove it and pull down towards the windage and elevation adjustment screws. There are 3 tiny phillips screws, remove them. Then unscrew the end of the Eye Peice end peice with the lens in it. inside on the outer edge of the main tube there is a locking ring that keeps the eye peice from unscrewing off, remove it and unscrew the entire eye peice. you are now ready remove the inner tube. Be careful here this is where you can damage the cross hairs and lose the leaf spring that maintains pressure against the windage and elevation screws. When you reassemble after cleaning and with the elevation screw at 12 o'clock and windage screw at 3 o;colck, the leaf spring will be in the 7 or 8 O"clock position, it just sits in there up against a little ridge inside, with the bow facing to the center. Back off the elevation and windage screws all the way so they don't block the inner tube from going in all the way. Once it is in adjust it so the cross hairs are orented correctly and put it back together. If you want to refill with Nitrogen remove the front lense and take to someone that fills tires with Nitrogen and inject the nitrogen into the scope, Quickly reinstall the front lens as nitrogen is about 3% lighter than air and if you take too long it will all escape.
This worked well for me. Good Luck and Happy shooting

Every time i set the scope the pelets hit ese


I would check your pellets.

Light pellets typically perform horrible in break barrel rifles due to their tendancy to fly around

Make sure you have a stiff, tight fitting pellet. Smaller soft pellets also will contribute to accuracy issues as they deform much and can let air escape from around the skirt when fired (called "blo by")

How do u reset a rifle scope


Hi type into Google, Zeroing a Telescopic Rifle site, Shooters have there own ways of doing it but you will find what is best for you depending on what type of rifle you will be using. If you are fitting it to a Air Rifle. You could Type in Zeroing telescopic site for Air Rifles.
Hope this helps

Yesterday I purchased a Bushnell Banner 4-12 x 40mm scope and mounted it on my RWS model 48 air gun per the scope mount manufacturer's instructions. After shooting my gun 4 times the cross hair broke and...


Paul,

to me it sounds like you have unfortunately been the victim of a manufacturers defect. the unique thing about shooting spring based airguns like your RWS and my Gamos is the effect of the recoil. it's different from traditional cartridge rifles but will never really be sufficient to ruin your scopes especially a bushnell. For now i would try to return your scope to the store you bough it from if that is within their returns policy. if not call bushnell at (800) 423-3537

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello,
I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.

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
