Scope Mounting

Home

This rifle has mounting grooves milled into the receiver to facilitate the mounting of a rifle scope, choose a scope which is designed to withstand the recoil dynamics of spring piston airguns. Use ring mounts with clamps of the proper size and design to engage the grooves. It may also be necessary to use a recoil stop block behind the rear ring mount if it moves under recoil.

Follow the instructions which come with your scope to establish proper eye relief and sighting in. With proper care and use your new air rifle should give you many years of use and enjoyment.

Instructions for typical Telescopic Sight

FOCUSING:

While holding the scope about three or four inches from your eye, quickly glance through the eyepiece at a featureless, flatly lit bright area such as a wall or open sky.

It the reticule is not sharply defined instantly, loosen the eye bell locking ring. Turn the eyepiece (either direction) a few turns, quickly glance through the scope again.. It the focus has improved, but is still not perfect, continue focusing. It the focus condition became worse turn it the opposite way, when the reticule appears in sharp focus, retighten the locking ring. On models equipped with a fast focus eyeball, one only needs to turn the eyeball in or out for adjustment There is no lock ring with which to be concerned.

 

CAUTION: VIEWING THE SUN CAN CAUSE SERIOUS EYE INJURY, NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN WITH THIS PRODUCT OR EVEN THE NAKED EYE.

 

MOUNTING:

 

CAUTION: BE SURE GUN IS NOT LOADED USE SAFE GUN HANDLING PROCEDURES AT ALL TIMES.

 

Separate the tops of the rings from the bottom portion, set the scope in the cradles formed by the bottom portions. Replace the tops, but don't tighten.

Push-the scope as far forward as it will go. Rotate the scope so that the elevation turret is on top.

Shoulder or bench rest the rifle and pull the scope back toward you until you see the full field of view check attitude of the reticule, the vertical and horizontal components should be aligned with the bore axis.

When the scope is properly positioned and the reticule aligned with the bore axis, tighten the ring tops

CAUTION: Do not over-tighten. Over-tightening can cause damage to the scope, affecting performance or even rendering it inoperable. There should be a slight gap between the rings and the scope. The gaps should be even on the left and right side of both rings.

 

PRE-ZEROING

 

CAUTION: BE SURE GUN IS NOT LOADED. USE SAFE GUN HANDLING PROCEDURES AT ALL TIMES.

 

To bore sight. remove the bolt from bolt action guns, open other types, If you have a parallax correctable model riflescope, (see parallax corrections). rotate the parallax ring to the 50 yard position, Set zoom scopes to mid power.

Rest the rifle on a steady support and remove the windage and elevation caps. Look through the bore, from the breech, for actions

other than bolt, you will need a small mirror positioned in the ejection port and tilted so you can see through the bore, at a 50-yard target, move the butt stock to centre the target in the bore, without disturbing the rifle, adjust windage and elevation screws to centre the reticule on target.

To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counter clockwise, to shift left, turn windage screw clockwise.

If large amounts of windage and elevation adjustments are needed to bore sight, make about 1/2 of the required elevation change, then about 1/2 of the windage. Finish by applying the balance or elevation correction and then windage.

 

NOTE: If you have windage adjustable rings, make major windage adjustments with them. Final adjustment can be made with the scope’s built-in system.

FOR AIRGUN SCOPES: Remove the protective caps and rotate the finger adjustable windage and elevation drums to centre the reticule.

 

CAUTION: ALL SHOOTING SHOULD BE DONE AT AN APPROVED RANGE OR OTHER SAFE AREA. EYE AND EAR PROTECTION IS RECOMMENDED.

 

When you have finalized zeroing, replace windage and elevation Caps.

FOR AIRGUN SCOPES OR TARGET SCOPES: After zeroing. you may use the Allen wrench supplied with your scope to remove the windage and elevation drums and then reposition them so that the zero (0”) lines up with the indicator line on the spindle.
