Your scope may not be hurt if water has not caused any rust yet. Things you will need, hair drier, Vaseline, large clear plastic bag, gas from a paint ball gun canister. Remove the eye piece, and shake as much water out as you can. Use the hair drier and heat the tube up, not too hot but warm, to dry the inside as good as you can, keep after it, shaking it and heating it. Once you feel all the water and moister are gone. Put a good amount of vaseline on the threads of the eye piece. The put the scope, the eye piece in the plastic bag. Use the paint ball gas and inflate the plastic bag, tie off the bag leaving room so you can screw the eye piece back on the main tube. Leave the scope in the bag for a few minutes before you do screw the eye piece on letting the gas fully get in the tube. The gas will give a bit of positive pressure inside the tube, Will displace any other air that will have moister in it. Keep the inside from fogging back up. The vaseline will help seal the gas inside. Hope this Helps Fix Ya up.

What kind of scope would be good for my 308 axis rifle?


Redfield and Vortex brands make good entry level scopes with good clarity, durability, features and warranties. If you plan on hunting a scope with a low power around 3-4x and a high power of 9-12x with a bullet drop reticle like the Vortex BDC would be a good choice.

No image through lenses


1. During the daylight point the telescope towards an object (water tower, building ) something about 1/2 mile away.
2. Locate the object in your finder.
3. Use the 12.5mm lens (50x) and look through the telescope. Do not use the erect prism
4. Align the finder to what you see in the scope.
5. You can use the 4mm to fine adjust the finder.
6. On a good, clear night.Leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium ( about a hour) Point the finder towards the moon
7. Use the 12.5mm and then focus on the moon.

Note: This is NOT a quality scope. Avoid any scope with .965 eyepieces and silly magnifications! Max power on this scope on a PERFECT night is 200x and Huygens (H12.5) eyepieces give very narrow and poor viewing. Do not use the 3x barlow or the erecting prism. the erecting prism is for terrestrial viewing only and the barlow, although it increases the eyepiece by 3x, will also narrow the view.
Good Luck!

Car over heat sitting still moving the car is fine what is it


The overheating of the car can be due to many reasons and you need to check on each one to confirm the working of the system.
1. In the first place the working of the engine must be assessed. it must be smooth with a good indication that the tuning timing and the power seems good. This will confirm that the settings of the engine is good and so there is less scope that the engine seems to heat up on its own.
2. Secondly the radiator pressure cap must be tight and good, the radiator MUST not loose coolant after a run or in a few days time- since this must be a sealed system and there is no scope of water overflow or loss unless there is a leak- sometimes the leak is too microscopic as under high pressure only steam might escape and so reduce the coolant. So check for leaks while the engine is hot , specially the radiator, the hose or the fittings.
3. The working of the water pump must be good to ensure a good flow and circulation, so check for leak in the water pump, check for presence of water in the exhaust or leaking on the engine gaskets.
4.Make sure that the coolant is good and clean if not drain and refill , if there is presence of rust please have a good flushing of the radiator or else the chances are that the radiator ports can be blocked and reduce the efficiency of the cooling .
5. Finally the cooling fan, the radiator fan must be working, check the thermostat/thermistor to work accordingly with good flow, have a good water jet wash on the radiator for a clean radiator cooling fin exposure.

Recently lost gun in water for a moment, Now scope gets fogged inside. Is there anything I can do to stop it? It a fairly new scope.


Your scope may not be hurt if water has not caused any rust yet. Things you will need, (1) hair drier, (2) Vaseline, (3) large clear plastic bag, (4) gas from a paint ball gun canister or similar type of inert gas you can use. Remove the eye piece, and shake as much water out as you can. Use the hair drier and heat the tube up, not too hot but warm, to dry the inside as good as you can, keep after it, shaking it and heating it. Once you feel all the water and moister are gone. Put a good amount of vaseline on the threads of the eye piece. The put the scope, the eye piece in the plastic bag. Use the paint ball gas and inflate the plastic bag, tie off the bag leaving room so you can screw the eye piece back on the main tube. Leave the scope in the bag for a few minutes before you do screw the eye piece on letting the gas fully get in the tube. The gas will give a bit of positive pressure inside the tube, Will displace any other air that will have moister in it. Keep the inside from fogging back up.

At 100 yards bullet walks left to right


I hate to say it, but it is the scope, they just don't have it. It is not just Simmons, but a whole slew of scopes for $100 that are hit and miss. A good scope is $500 and it won't move, You might get lucky and find a good Bushnell, or Simmons, but for the most part, just look at the complaints listed in here, all Taiwan scopes. You never see a Leupold complaint. Nikon is good, and so is Pentax.The old redfield was a good scope.

Scope is maxed out for adjustment, is till shooting low dav


if your scope is shooting low and you dont wont to buy a new set of mounts the only way to lift the point of aim is to pack out the eye end of the scope mount with 35mm film or a soft type of shim that wont scrach your scope i use 35mm film at its mostly water proof but there are other shims that do the same thing put about 25th of an inch under the eye end between the scope mount and the scope this will lift the "bell end" up and lower the point of aim there by rasing the impact point of your bullets dont over do this idear as if you go to far you wont get the turrets to drop the point of impact and you could also bend the scope, but 25th of an inch is not a lot but its over 10 inches at 100 yds with a .22 rim fire rifle
good luck shoot safely and good hunting

I have a 25 year old Redfield 6X18 scope, with an


bullet drop compensation,,,,compleat hog wash!
no such thing in a scope, only a realy pricy one like £1500.00p worth and there not that good! but there coming soon! driven by a lazer for range finding,,,
still your scope has clouded up becouse its leaking
water has got into it, it could be repaired but its not cheap to do, it needs a complet strip down all the class cleand and new seals then a re-gas and it should be as good as new for another 25 years or so,
any good scope with mill dot will work for you, you just need to relurn the bullet drop over again,,and with the years of shooting you have had that should come easy as falling over,,,why not just get a good prised 3/9x40 mill dot and try that out insted, you will be plesently pleased with todays mid priced range scopes treet your self, and save money at the same time

Cleaning


I hunt in Wyoming so I understand your dilemma. I recommend using running tap water to take off the clay and mud. Let dry and repeat if you need to. That will allow the bonds the clay and mud have on your scope to loosen and fall away between rinses. This will save your scope's finish. When you get ready for your lenses take extra care! I use ammonia free towelettes i get at the local electronics store to leave a streak free shine on my lenses. Using ammonia or alcohol will break down and ruin the fog proof and water proof coatings you can enjoy with your optic now. Otherwise that's the best recipe for getting your optic back to 100%
