Question about ATN 6-18X65LU Daytime Rifle Scope

1 Answer

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 making the rings a little tighter each time. can't tighten them any more and the scope is sliding all the way forward after about 20 rounds. am I not doing something right with the adjustable bushings inside? I'm also looking for other adjustable rings as well that may work better but can't find any.

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!

I got a d-141m night scope,and i need a adaoter to make it fit a air rifle


You'll need to measure straight across the flat top of the mount grooves on your rifle. It'll be 9-11mm or 3/8" etc. Your rifle has what's called "dovetail rails". It's just a fancy way of saying small grooves, really. What you'll need is an adapter to get a "weaver" rail for your scope. Head to Ebay and search on "11mm to weaver adapter". That's if your gun has 11mm dovetails of course. It most likely will. Go low rise first off, too. Don't go high rise without a good reason. You'll know the diff. Nice scope! Congrats!

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.

My Bushnell Banner rifle scope 3x9x40 ia at max elevation and shoots low The scope is used on a marlin 1894c underlever rifle and attached to a weaver rail how can i fix this problem


you might be able to buy a weaver rail adapter that can change your elevation aswell as lift up your scope a bit just to make it a bit easier to see out of. try something like this maybe http://ant-supplies.co.uk/DovetailtoWeaverAdapters.aspx

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

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
