BSA 3-12 x 50 Rifle Scope

I bought this rifle and it came with BSA scope. Its worked fine for the last two seasons, but while cleaning the gun for storage at the end of the season, I noticed that the crosshairs turn when i adjust the power level. Is it worth it to get it fixed or better to just buy a new scope?

But a new scope. Having the crosshair reseated will cost you more than getting a new BSA scope.

What that means is they are not mounted correctly. The scope mounts should be square with your rifle when fitted, when the scope is placed into the mounts, it should be turned to be square with the rifle.

Firstly, make sure you do not "cant" when you shoot. That is hold the rifle at an angle instead of vertical. Once you are sure that is OK, then put it into a vice using blanket or some other soft material to protect the stock. Get the rifle perfectly square using a spirit level. There should be a flat spot on the top of the action that you can use. Once this is achieved, you loosen off the scope mounts and square the scope up to your satisfaction. Once done, tighten the mounts up and then remove from the vice.

If it repeatably blows the fuse, it is a transformer problem. You can order a new one through Fisher Scientific. The part # is XP-MC2-TR1. They are around $40.

    Mounting


    Any scope will mount on any rifle using the appropriate mount and ring combination. It shouldn't be a problem to mount it on your savage.

    I recently recieved a BSA Radiant 3x9x40IR rifle scope with no manual. How do you turn the power on/off or do you have to remove the battery?


    Most, by far, the majority of these types of scopes with electronice dots, or other enhancements requiring a battery are turned off when you return the power setting to zero ( 0 )
    This is regardless of the manufacturer.

    And almost all of the time the power control is integrated in to either the top or side turret, or adjustment knob.

    Also most of the time the battery is a # 2032 which is flat and about the shape of a quarter / $.25.00. They last indefinitley until you forget to turn off the power!

    hope this helps!

    Cross hair broken on my B S A mil dot 4-16 x 40 scope will any gun shop be able to repair


    Yes, more than likely.
    The scope just needs to be disassembled and the crosshair flange repaired or replaced.
    A dealer should be able to order the part or at least fit one similar enough to work.
    The trick is not to allow any moisture into the scope's internal cavity during the repair.
