Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

Open Question

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A COPPERHEAD 150 VIPER CROSSBOW THATI AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH.I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ADJUST THE WINDAGE. IT SHOOTS TO THE LEFT ABOUT 1&1/2 FT TO 2FT FROM BULLSEYE. IT HAS 2 MOUNTED FRONT RED TIP SIGHTING PINS [TOP FOR SHORT RANGE-BOTTOM FOR LONG RANGE]. I TRIED ADJUSTING THE PINS IN AND OUT BUT THE CROSSBOW STILLS SHOOTS OFF TARGET TO THE LEFT. IT DIDN'T COME WITH A MANUAL WHEN I BOUGHT IT THE REAR SIGHT HAS AN ADJUSTMENT DIAL ON IT BUT I BELIEVE IT IS FOR THE ELEVATION. CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THIS ISSUE? SIGNED: GUNDOG MASTER !

SOURCE: Problem sighting bushnell lazer boresighter

If you are attempting to use a red laser in daylight, you have to wear special glasses to see it well. You may have to complete this project with less light, such as after dark, or indoors. Only green lasers will show up in daylight. If this is not helpful, then I suggest that you change the batteries to brand new ones that you are sure of. There is probably no adjustment possible. Best wishes for your safe shooting!

each notch should move your point of impact back on target for each 25 yards you add to the distance at which you are shooting

SOURCE: scope elevation adjusted allthe way up & still shoots low

Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

SOURCE: How do I sight-in(zero-in) my handgun(S&W

The problem with this is, the Sigma comes with Fixed Rear Sites. Non Adjustable.

I also have a good buddy of mine that was in the Police Academy who bought that gun for his duty weapon and was having the same problems you are. Hitting Way Low.

Now, another side to this problem Ive heard of is that the Sigma Series has a really heavy trigger pull. And a lot of shooters (More than 20) have come together with the fact that due to the heavy pull, it causes you to pull the muzzle downward as you squeeze the trigger...without even knowing it. Causing you to hit low.

If this is the case, I would take a guess that if you are a left handed shooter, you have too much finger on the trigger causing you to pull left...mixed with the heavy trigger pull, forcing downward. Or a Right handed shooter with the correct amount of finger on the trigger, but such a heavy pull, your pushing to the left. Just another thought for ya.

But from what my research has led me to find, there is no option yet for adjustable rear sites.

Here is a LINK to a website discussing the heavy Trigger Pull causing dropped Bullet Impacts. Read what they say and it might help ya. If you change some things, let me know. Id be interested to hear if it changes your POI. (Point of Impact)

Hope This Helps!

I recently bought a Barnett RC-300 Crossbow. But the string was broke on it. I'm looking for a manual, video, or a detailed explanation on How to Restring a Barnett RC-300 Crossbow. Place n tks


Try searching youtube for a video.

I am not sure if any preload is applied to the prod when restringing, but the Barnett is a popular crossbow and they are sold and serviced by a great many serious hunting, shooting and fishing shops and suppliers as well as a few sports outlets. You should have no trouble finding spares and information.

I have a Bushnell Sprotiew 4x, 15mm scope mounted on a Mossburg .22 rifle. My shots are hitting left six inches and low. Can you please tell me how to adjust this scope? Thank you.


Keep in mind Diane this is for a set distance. if you are taking a shot at a target further than your are set for (ie a target you wont get 3 shots @) remember how the bullet is travelling as it goes down range

one idea would be to set your rifle up down range and zero it in on a target (preferably paper) now adjust 1 MOA (try and have target @ 100 yards and 200 yards)

see how far the bullet moves for each moa adjustment. then check it against the next range.

this should remain constant @ a set number of inches per 100 yards.

so if you zero in @ 100 yards and then move 1 moa any direction and it adjusts (lets say and hope it is 1.047 inches") then you do the same for 200 yards. it should be twice as much movement. ie 2.094"

once you know what 1 moa represents on your scope you can adjust alot more accurately.

REMEBER the total inches of movement / adjustment per MOA is directly related to range (a precise range helps in shooting) so if your squirrel is 150 yards and your first shot is off 9" to adjust you divide 9" by the inches per moa so 1.5 (150 yards /100) X (Inches per 100 yards per moa you measured hopefully 1.047") its 9" divided by 2x1.047 = 9" / 2.094 = 4.29799

this number needs to be rounded to the nearest click on your scope (most are 1/4 MOA scopes and you can tell by looking at how many clicks/lines are inbewteen each large number on your windage and elevation dials

so to turn this into an adjustment we round 4.29799 to 4.25 which is 4.25 MOA or 17 clicks on a 1/4 min scope.

GL and any questions just post and ill help

not please rate this as fixya :)

Note i can provide EXACT information that would allow you to determine range, and windage and elevation adjustments by looking through scope and estimating range
then factoring in weather variables. NOTE you hafta enjoy math or just want to know how to shoot really well. :)

Windage adjust correction


Go to; www.bsaoptics.com for the manual and parts.
You do not say if the WINDAGE Adjustment KNOB is 'broken' or what? If you have dropped it or somehow broken it, it's unlikely that you will be able to repair it yourself, in which case I refer you again to BSA.
If there's nothing wrong with the scope or your rifle, and you are simply having difficulty getting a good ZERO, I can help you with that, just respond and let me know.
Good luck. :)
