  • Onery mil dot scope wouldn't sight in right..I fixed it.....

    At least I THINK (ouch) I did. Had adjusted windage as far as it would go and hits were still 10 inches to the left at 50 yards.

    I loosened 5 base screws, pried a gap in the front of scope and inserted part of a Q tip as a shim.
    This moved the FRONT of scope left and, hopefully, Saturday I'll know if it works.

    May have to put smaller shim, but if IA moves right, I'll know I'm on the right track. White pick in picture shows where I put shim..........

    Good luck, and do get back with the info on this, might just be intersting.

    I had trouble way back with my Enfield scope mount, even at full twist it the scope still was of by about 2 feet at 100.

    Then i realised the whole mount was off compared to the rifle's barell direction, took the mount to a smith friend of mine,
    sanded the fore area of the mount to a gentle slop and that did it.

    (smith friend -> ) JOKE

    Good Luck and Happy trigger time.

      Hoo Boy! It worked! In fact, I had reset scope back to zero and it shot to the right!

      I dialed a couple of clicks and she is almost dead on. Q-tip shim was too much and I had a couple of strips of index card inserted. Gonna fine tune Wednesday at the Creek with a couple of AWers. Raining now.

      WOW! Love it!
