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

Open Question

I have an older model Simmons Scope. It is an 8-point, 3x9x40. 1. It is focused fine @ 3 power but when I turn it up to 7,8 and 9, the target blurrs. 2. Is the tube gas filled? I ask because I took the front lense off to clean it and later found out that some scope tubes are gas filled to prevent fogging....????

Google SWFA ......they sell about 20 different brands of riflescopes, with pix, desriptions and prices. It's a good source for info, even if you decide to buy one of the same scopes at Walmart. Check out the Bushnell Trophy, Nikon Prostaff, and Tasco scopes, in particular.

Also, there is a website I belong to, originally started just for the Ruger 10/22 owners/fans. You can visit it and join for free at - www.RimfireCentral.com
We have a great bunch of guys and gals there, who can help you with questions on ANY type rimfire rifle. I'm sure you will love this site.

your best bet is to locate your local shooting club and ask someone experienced with specialist scopes. As for now, all I can suggest is to sight the scope in at 3x power. I'm not sure about a boresight on this scope, since is is at the extreme budget end of zoom scopes. If you mean it has a rangefinding (or ballistic) reticle, then you might try here: http://www.perry-systems.com/reticle_analysis.htm for basic usage guide. The reference distances will vary according to several factors, including but not exclusively: bullet weight, muzzle velocity, firing angle, windage adjust, wind direction.

SOURCE: rifle scope fogging

You can try to clear this your self. You will need a good sized clear plastic bag, say kitchen trashed can size. You will need to get your hands on some nitrogen or you can also use carbon dioxide. You will need some good electrical contact grease or Vaseline will also work. Take the focus lens off your scope, let it dry out. Now ck for any o-rings and try to find new if you can, put the grease on the screw threads.Put all the scope parts in the bag and pump up the bag with your nitrogen and tie off the bag but leave room so you can screw the lens back on once it has set for a little bit in the gas. This should let gas stay inside the scope so no moisture can get back inside to fog it up. Try that, sounds crazy but it will work.

Does a Simmons model 533940 work on a 7mm Remington


Any scope will work on any gun. Its effectiveness requires your to match capability with need. A rimfire scope is intended for a 50 yard zero. If you expect to do most of your shooting at 50 yards, it will work fine.

Simmons 3*9 22 MAG scope


Hi,
I bought one SIMMONS 3*9 MAG 22 riffle scope from USA last month in $54 and fixed it on my .22 riffle with proper instruction. When I shooted 2-3 bullets, its + sign is moved from actual target.

I made the target and + again in sync and after shooting 3-4 bullets, its + changed the position. After consulting with some mechanic, he told me the SIMMONS telescope is manufactured in China and its acuracy is not upto the mark. He was advocating me to buy bushnell scope for my riffle.

Now I am confused and not able to identify how to fix this + movement problem in my scope.

Can anyone please help me on this ????

Your reply is very much anticipated.

Thanks !!

Your scope has 5 adjustments:
1. Eye piece focus - used to focus on the reticle.
2. windage adjustment - should be on the R side of the scope, adjusts lateral impact point.
3. Vertical adjustment - the top turret. Adjusts vertical point of impact.
4. Power ring - adjusts the magnification of the scope.
5. AO ring - Parralax adjustment - used to focus the scope at specific distances. Most markings are not exact, you should set it at the range you are shooting and fine tune focus when you look through the scope.

Science tech 262 manual


Can't find a manual. This is a 76mm reflector on a Alt/AZ mount.
1. During the day, put in the 20mm eyepiece and point to a object around 100 yards away.
2. Focus on the object
3. Align the finder to the object in the eyepiece
4, Set up at night, give the scope time to reach outside temperature
5. Point scope with finder at the moon. (More than half full will be too bright)
6 Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) and focus on the moon.
7. You may now use higher power eyepieces to observe.
8. Pointing the scope usually involves loosing 2 knobs to move the scope in up/down and side to side motion. There may be slow motion controls to adjust the scope as objects in the sky move.

We have a 675 power/6mm astronomical refractor telescope and we can't seem to get it to work. there are no manuals with it either.


Forget about the 675 power. You will never get that much magnification.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Take the scope outside duringg the day and practice focusing on a distant object. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

The moon should be your first night time target.

Need a manual for a simmons rifle scope model # 1022


When you click on "customer service" on the simmonsoptics.com website, it takes you to the Bushnell customer service web page.

The number for customer service that is given is:

1-888-276-5945

The customer service rep. told me to "go to the Simmons web page".

Which, of course, takes me back to the Bushnell web page. It's a circular race track.......

In my opinion, Simmons/Bushnell has lousy customer service.

I bought a 2nd hand Simmons 3-9X50 scope (model #800479) that needed the screw on caps for the reticle adjustment screws. A small request, I thought.....one that should be easily remedied by calling Simmons/Bushnell customer support.

No dice. Customer support told me to spend $15 to send them the scope, and then they "will have to look around and find something that will fit."

Oh really??? Doesn't Simmons/Bushnell already KNOW the sizes of the parts they have?

Just send me the damn caps. They will cost Simmon/Bushnell no more than a buck apiece.

Then I asked for a user manual for said scope. No dice. The customer support lady told me to find the manual on the Simmons web page.

The Simmons web page doesn't provide user manuals online.

Their customer support needs a lot of improvement.

Trying to identify older tasco telescope and put it together


There are only two types of telescopes --- REFRACTORS, and REFLECTORS-

The refractor has a lens on the front of the tube and you insert different eyepieces in the back-- the larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification-- (DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3x barlow which you may have!-- this creates too much power for this small telescope!-- put it away and never use it!)

A reflector has a main mirror on the bottom of the tube, and a small secondary mirror under the eyepiece hole (focuser end) - front end-- put the lowest power eyepiece into the focuser.

Now with either type telescope go out side during the day and practice focusing on a distant object-- turn the knob SLOWLY. At night the moon should be the first target you try.

If you received what appears to be a smaller telescope -- that is the finder scope-- attach it to the top of the tube on the main telescope. Again during the day line up the small finder scope with the main scope-- look at a distant telephone pole (the very top-- and center this in the main telescope. Without moving the main scope use the finder scopes "screws" to adjust the cross hairs so they are pointing exactly where the main scope is pointed. Now you can use the small finder scope to point the telescope in the exact direction--

The moon should be your first night time target.

Good luck--

Simmons scope that will not stay on target


Mount the rifle with the scope and make a mark on the backstop right where the crosshairs are pointed at

Shoot several times, several shots will surley jolt the scope some.

If the crosshairs have moved much past your mark then this would indicate the scope is the issue.

If the crosshairs are still pretty well centered to the mark, its not the scope.

If at the same time your grouping looks terrible, and your scope still is on the mark, and the gun is WELL mounted, then the issue is with the accuracy of the rifle.
Make sure the rifle is mounted good for this to ba accurate .
Hope this helps

Simmons Prohunter Model 517710 won't shoot a group


You SHOULD send it back. There is something loose inside the scope. Even the worst Simmons scope will get you to 2"-3" group. Also, when you replace it, you might want to consider their (or Nikons) shotgun scopes. They are built to with stand the power of the higher centerfire calibers and magnum shotgun shells.
