www.wikihow.com > ... > Guns and Shooting > Rifles wikiHowLearning to properly mount, sight, and adjust a rifle scope will result in accurate shots and saved ... MESSAGES. LOG IN ... Start with a good quality base mount and mounting rings to ensure that your scope will be held sturdy for years to come.
It is most likely the mounts not the scope. I would just install it on the new gun and check it there. Most times a scope that wanders is the mounts. One thing with big scope is they need to be tight or the recoil will move it in the mounts. Next due to being tight when the gun heats up it can and will tweak the scope in the mounts enough to move your center. Try it in your other gun, try 3 shot groups and let the gun cool. Recheck your center. If it is good with a cold gun all is well. If it moves from one day to the next it is the mounts. If you count the clicks to recenter, come back the next day and move it the same clicks, it is the mounts. If it is all over the place, day after day it is the scope.
its all down to the mounts not being right for that gun, the frount of the scope is to hight up,
however if its shooting low get yourself a strip of 35mm camra film cut a fuw strips off and slip them under the eye end of your scope then nip the scope donw on the film strips, this will life the eye end of the scope up and raze the point of aim, done put more that 4 strips of film under your scope or you may bend the tube if you cant raze it with 3 strips its a new mount, sorry i do this for the guys at my club and on big rifles too, it wont shift or slip if its niped up
I'd start by looking at the mounting bases.
First tighten the scope ring screws to 25 inch pounds, then loosen and remove the rings from the base(s) while still attached to the scope.
Back out the base screws one at a time, apply low strength thread locking compound and tighten each to 25 inch pounds.
Remount the rings/scope to the bases tightening till snug but not overly tight and sight-in the rifle.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith
Are you trying to get the front ring to attach to the front base? If so... clamp the ring onto a 1"dia. x ~12" long wooden dowel. Set the ring into the base from the side of the weapon (90^ from the barrel). Making sure the ring is fully seated onto the base, turn the ring/dowel 90^ until the dowel is parallel with the barrel. The fit is quite tight between ring and base. Do not put the ring on and take it back off again as the fit will deteriorate.
* IMPORTANT * Make absolutely certain both the front and rear rings are exactly in line with each other before mounting the scope. You do not want to bend or kink the scope. There are tools you can buy, or... use a 1" dowel in each ring. Align the ends of the rods with slight turning adjustments to the front ring to get both rings pointing the same direction. The rear ring does not turn, only the front one.
Hold the outer portion of the elevation knob and unscrew the screw on top. then pull up on the outer portion and you'll see a silver screw marked with an arrow and the word "Up". Sight the rifle at a known distance and then line up the knob with that distance as you push it down on the scope and replace the screw. I have one of these and figured this out on my own, however I'm missing the mount and would like some pictures and dimensions of the mount if any of you can get some. I'm gonna be machining a new one and would like to keep it as close to the original as possible.
