The gun can be getting hot during your sighting in session. Heat from the reviver can throw your setting off, then as you adjust things get worse. Start and loosen the scope rings one at the time. Front first, and re-tighten, then the rear. Fire 2 shot groups, letting the gun cool some in-between each group. This way you can figure out if it is the scope loosing it's center or the mounts getting in a bind due to heat and twisting the tube. After each adjustment tap on the scope to set the cross hairs, again this will give you feed back, if the scope can hold it's center. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

You need to check the seals and valves on the pump to make sure that they are all in good shape and that there is no scoring in the cylinder.

I'm sure this will sound stupid, I just bought a rifle with a Tasco red dot scope on it and have no idea how to activate the scope. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks


No, that doesn't sound stupid. It's always a good idea to get all the information before using firearms and their accessories, and I'm happy to help:

The large knob on top of the scope is the rheostat, which is used to turn on the red dot, and adjust the brightness. It can be adjusted from "1" (dimmest) to "11" (brightest). You'll have to be looking straight down the scope to see the red dot, since it is only visible when you're aiming. If you turn on the scope to the brightest setting, and you look through like you are aiming, and the red dot is still not there (or very dim) then you probably need to replace the battery. It uses a 3 Volt coin-style lithium battery, type 2032. Unscrew the battery compartment on top of the rheostat and put the new battery "+" side up. Then replace the battery cover, and you should be good to go. Turn off the scope when you're done to save the batteries.

Since you bought the rifle with the scope already installed, it's probably already sighted in, or pretty close to being sighted in. Adjusting the windage and elevation on the red dot scope works just like other rifle scopes. The knob on top moves the point of impact up/down, and the knob on the side moves left/right. For this model, each click of adjustment moves the point fo impact by 1/2" at 100 yds, 1/4" at 50 yds, or 1/8" at 25 yds.

Be safe, and have fun!

How to sight in a z6 swarovski scope 10x42


the easy way is bore sight it,,,,,first clamp the rifle in a stand and look down the barrel at some thing like a post top at say 100 yds when you see the post top in the bore dont move the rifle any more till you have tweeked your scope so the cross is on the top of the post top,,,the rifle is then bore sighted,,,now clamp the rifle down and test fire it,,,it will likley shoot low,,,so tweek it till it shoots right,,,,you should get it spot on in less than 5 rounds,,,dont try to hand hold your rifle when zeroing,,,you need to get rid of as many wobbley bits as you can,,,gees whats the bigest wobbley bit?,,,,yep we are? so clamp it down till it shoots right! also dont fire more than 5 shots or you will get your barrel hot and this changes the point of aim,,,in a sporting rifle???

I have about a 1989 model Leupold 3x9 Var X and lost the users manual- it is shooting about 2-3 inches to the right at 60 yards- Can you tell me which way (lft or right?) and how much- I assume I should...


You have a number or a fraction on the inside of the windage cap, or you should, it will say something like 1/4 or 1/2? That will tell you how many fractions your scope moves with each click, at 100 yards. Anyway, there is also a left and right direction on the scope, you want your scope to go in the direction of your bullet miss, this will pull the barrel over to the center, again, it is supposed to. If you have run out of clicks, you will need to shim your scope. So, on the 1/4 inch at 100 yards, you will want to move the dial, 8 to 12 clicks to the right. Shoot it again, if it went the wrong way, you know what to do. If it didn't move at all, try this.... If it is a bolt action rifle, pull the bolt out, mount the rifle in a cardboard box with v grooves cut in it so it will cradle and not move, or a vise, sight down the barrel at a target at 100 yards, then peek down the scope, it should be right on the target, if not move the cross hairs till it aligns, check the barrel again, make sure it didn't move, then peek through the scope again, if it is the same, it will be on paper at 100 yards, if it is not a bolt action, the only other rifle you can d it with is an AR type rifle. This is a military trick, not something I dreamed up, it works. Check it out.

Siting in scope 2 ft hi at 25 yds no adjustment


well at 25ft you will run out of drop, its all down to how high the scope is above the barrel when its fitted to the rifle a 30-06 should be set up over 100 yds and shooting out that far it will be shooting low,,your rifle will shoot right out to 1000yds so you will get about 5ft drop out that far,,,and by the way,,,its very very dangers to discharge your rifle into a sand bag closer that 30 yds,, you may well get hit by a bit of the bullet jacket being striped off the bullet and coming back at you so done do it, right! shoot it over 100yds
however if its still shooting hight at say 50yds the only way to drop the point of aim is pack out the front of the scope mount with a strip of 35mm film slip it under the front ring (not the eye end) and sit the scope on it then do up the screws to nip it up this will lift up the front of the scope and it will shoot lower,,also if you were to put a strip under the eye end it razes the point of aim, i do this often for the members of my club on much biger rifles than 30-06's
and they dont drift or move off aim its a cheap fix, or you need a new mount?

I think formula in instructions for calculating actual clicks for non-100 yard distances is bogus. upside-down. very very wrong. you know what I mean or should I quote it? not your problem, it's GAMO's....


your wasting your time with them my friend, all they will say is,,,a 177 air rifle shooting over 100 yds?????
you are kidding!
dont bother reading up all the jen, just set out some targets at 5yds apart and shoot at them till you find out just what your rifle's bullet drop is, but at 100yds you may fine your shooting at the sky,,,,

I used all of the elevation adjustment on 3-9-50mm scope and my 22 rifle still shoots low at 25 yards


its a bad mount thats doing this,,,you can get over it easly by letting off the rear top mount of the scope (the mount near your eye) and pushing under your scope a strip of 35mm film this will lift the eye end of the scope giving you more range,,(elevation) only put 2 or 3 strips of film under the scope any more that this could bend the scope tube when you tighten it up
but a strip of film is about 25th of an inch and 1th will give you 1/4 of an inch at 100 yds ie:1 click! so you should easly get 10 inches at 100 yds or more with 3 strips of 35mm film under the scope even with bullet drop, the only other way to sort this out is to buy an adjusterbal mount witch is very pricy and 35mm film is cheaper, i do this all the time with my scopes

Sirs Shooting 25-06 dead on @ 100 yds., shot @ 200 yds hit 12" high, shoot again and the second bullet hit right at the first hole. Shooting H&R Handy Rifle, Hornady 117 gr. bullets Please advise to what...


sounds like it could be the scope more than any thing but shoot at 100 yd 5 shot group and see if it groups if if shots dance around on target make shure your mounts are tight there is time that companys send screws for the mounts that are to long for the holes that are taped in the gun the mount mite feel tight but could have play yet witch make your gun not shoot well you could also try setting the scope on 4 power shoot a shot at 50 yards then crank it up to 9 power shoot a shot if bullet impact moves it is the scope hope i helped ya out and good luck
