How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Magnification means how many times your target will be larger if you look at it through the scope. Magnification is indicated on the body of the scope, it can be marked as “3-9×32”. In this example, “3-9” is magnification. It means that your scope will be able to zoom in on the target 3-9 times.
Good quality for a pitance. Good quality scope for the money. I wouldn`t compare this with a good Nikon or Leupold scope, but then again this scope is for an AK, and you wouldn`t use a Nikon or a Leupold for a gun like that. 250 rounds throught rifle after mounting the scope, and no problems with zero at all.
Today, Tasco offers telescopes and other optics such as spotting scopes, rangefinders, and binoculars as well as red dots, rifle sights and accessories. Our mission is to share the magic and joy of magnifying life experiences with as many spectators and outdoor enthusiasts as possible.
Scope adjustments are the same for most scopes, modern holographic or red dot scopes and thermal or night vision scopes. If you can recall your geometry lessons or even the cardinal directions on a map, then you can understand how the scope`s internal sighting mechanism moves. You go up, down, left and right.
FAQ. What range is a 3-9×40 scope good for? For this model, a range of 50 yards to 300 yards is ideal. There may be more advanced scopes for long-range shooting.
You don`t need much magnification to hit steel at 300 yards effectively, so give yourself the flexibility of being able to go anywhere from 1x to 6x, or even 8x should the time come.
Zeiss. One of the best German companies to ever produce optics, Zeiss is a classic name in the field that will never let you down. With options for both hunting and tactical shooting, Zeiss covers a huge range of scopes and other optics like spotting scopes, binos, and more.
In 2002, Bushnell bought the sporting optics company Tasco. Tasco is a major international distributor of telescopes.
Tasco is based in Miramar, Florida.
Most rifle scopes have 1/4 MOA adjustments. This means that one click will move the bullet impact a quarter of an inch at 100 yards. However, this means that you need to make four times the number of clicks (16 clicks = 1 inch) to move the bullet impact the same distance at 25 yards.
If you`re sighting in a new scope, fire a shot or a three-shot group at 25 yards, then do some simple math. Your scope will move your crosshairs 1/4-inch per click at 100 yards. But you`re at 25 yards, so you need to multiply by four. So to move an inch, you will need 16 clicks.
Snipers zero their weapons at a target range or in the field. This is the process of adjusting the scope so that the bullets` points-of-impact are at the point-of-aim (centre of scope or scope`s cross-hairs) for a specific distance.
The bottom line is we don`t need a ton of power when we`re out hunting deer. A 1-4×32 riflescope is perfectly fine for hunting among the brush. For more versatility, a 3-9×40 scope is the best bet.
The 4×32 scope is a great choice for long-range shooting and precision shooting. The 3-9×40 is a good choice for general shooting and hunting. This will be more than enough magnification for most shots at medium to long-range; however, it will lack the precision of the 4x scope when compared to other scopes.
Most are taken under 70 yards so a scope with 4 to 6 power is more suitable but one with less power in an urban environment is appropriate. The most effective German snipers used 4x scopes in WWII where few had 6x scopes, yet they were taking shots over 600 meters.
Like all of Leupold`s riflescopes, the Mark 5HD is designed, machined, and assembled at their Beaverton, Ore. factory. The U.S. Army Mark 5HD 5-25×56 will come in a proprietary flat dark earth coating and utilize the Army`s patented Mil-Grid Reticle.
Holographic optics are very durable and can withstand a beating. It is the optic of choice for soldiers from the Navy SEALS, the Green Berets, and the Marine Raiders.
Duplex: The default scope reticle. It`s fast and easy to use (great for beginners). Mil-Dot: The reticle that estimates the target`s distance. Used primarily by law enforcement and the military.
The most common form of the magnification question is “What magnification do I need to shoot 1000yards?” The answer usually given is 10x.
If your firearm has low recoil, you`re using it for close range hunting, and have a low power scope, then get 28mm & under. However, if your firearm has quite a bit of recoil, you`re using it for low light hunting, and have a high power scope, then get 30 – 44mm.
The additional stops of adjustment that are available in a 30mm scope are more suited for longer range shooting. While a 1-inch scope can be very effective at longer ranges, shooters that want to be able to dial a scope to the exact milliradian may need the larger tube with the additional adjustments.
Scopes were usually “Zielvier,” which stands for 4X. However, these scopes were made by a host of German and Austrian manufacturers such as Zeiss, Hensoldt, Kahles and more. Collectively, the Germans termed Zielvier scopes as ZF39, and all were developed by civilian companies prior to war`s outbreak.

I have a winchester 70 30-06 sprng. serial number is G2571946 I am looking to sell it and i would like to know what a fair price would be. would you be able to help me out with this?
ANSWER : Hi David, It’s har to pin down a specific price without knowing the actual year of the firearm. This rifle is post 64 so the value wont be as high as a pre-64. With that said and the information given and assuming that the gun is in fair to good condition you will be looking at roughly $450-$600 range. Accessories and modifications could raise or lower that approximation. I really hope that this points you in the right direction. I may be new to Fixya but i know my guns. Let me know if this helps.

Help! Just bought a Remington 30 06 for my grandson that has a Bushnell Sportview U4124 4-12power scope mounted on it. I would like to sight it in at 100 yards using a 180 grain shell but I don’t have the owners manual and I don’t understand an on line explanation that I found. This is the on line message: “You’ll see two horizontal crosshairs, put the top one on the animals back then zoom in until the bottom one is on his stomach. Look at the numbers on the zoom dial there should be three lines they are D – deer, E – elk and A – antelope. The numbers are the distance to the game, you then turn the external elevation knob or turret to the matching distance and shoot dead on. No need to hold over for bullet drop. The sad part will be if you didn’t get the other turrets that would have come with it as they are calibrated to different calibers and bullet weights”
I don’t understand how to set the elevation knob to 100yards when its lowest shown number is 150. If I need other turrets how or where can I get them? Thanks, a frustrated grandfather.

Hello, i think i figured out what it was, after breaking down the valve again i was looking at the rubber that is around the valves and i was thinking at first this wasnt an extra part, but come to find out after many hours of researching online it is an peice that comes off but its just glued on, its a (Spider) gasket. So do u think if nothing is wrong with the valve itself that if the spider gasket is wearing away and starting to get britle that it will let the debris i vacuum up come back in the pool and let the backwash valve leak when its on the filter position? I cant thank u enough for helping me. You sure have lead me in the right direction and saved me alot of money. Otherwise i would of probably gave up and bought another one….thanks and let me know if u think that the buying a spider gasket will solve my problems
ANSWER : The spider gasket that you refer to is what seals the chambers from each other. Leaking here can have a large impact on how well the valve is able to do its job. But, I don’t remember seeing one in the parts diagram. If you are able to obtain one, then by all means, replace it if you can. As I said earlier, you are essentially rebuilding the valve assembly. If something looks worn, now is the time to repair / replace it during reassembly. I also have a suggestion for you as well. Take good pictures, document everything that you do when you disassemble and reassemble the valve. Then write up a tip (gotta become an expert) for others to read through and be able to service their own equipment. I was surprised to see that there were as many other questions asked about the same filter that you have. Highly recommend that you do this. As many times as you have taken this apart and put it back together, you are fast becoming an authority on it!Glad to see that you are sticking it through, and not throwing in the towel. After all is said and done, you will have a working knowledge of how your filter works, and be able to identify issues in the future before they become a problem. Congratulations!

My MSR Pocket Rocket will no longer light. Prior to the complete malfunction, the flame started to become much weaker, and then finally, the burner just would not light. I’ve removed the rubber o-ring on the bottom, uncovering a small hole, but am unsure as to whether this would have anything to do with gas delivery to the burner area. My guess is that there is some sort of buildup that is plugging the passageway through which gas would stream, preventing me from being able to light the burner, but am unable to locate an issue, since it appears I cannot disassemble the unit.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you,
Scott
ANSWER : Hi, chances are the jet is clogged – I’ve experienced this myself on the same stove.

I would leave the rubber o ring alone, the chances of the hole there being blocked are slim, it is more likely to be the outlet jet you can see throught the holes on the riser tube under the burner head.
This tube can be unscrewed – you may need to put something through like a pen for leverage. Once you have done this you can remove the tube and you will see the tiny jet in the top of the brass nut on the knurled base of the stove. Then its simply a matter of finding a thin enough wire or pricker to prod araound in the jet. I have a fine wire brush that works well, although I have only had to do it once in several years.
Put it all back together and you should be back to full power – the whole job takes two minutes tops.
The other thing I did was screw the riser tube back hand tight only – this means I can dismantle and clear the jet when camping if required. It doesnt affect performance or safety. I put a strand of the wire in a blob of blu tak in the plastic case the stove comes with – job done! Hope this helps.

I have a wildwood le 25bhbs and the only towing lights working are my signal lights. can’t get running lights or brake lights to work. I saw where it looked like the towing harness may have been pinched. So I repaired that, but, they still do not work. Any ideas? Is there a fuse somewhere I need to check? Do I need to hook the trailer up to my trailer hitch before they will work? Is there a wiring diagram or repair manual somewhere I can get? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
ANSWER : There should be an inline fuse, check that first.

I bought the Knoxx adjustable stock for my mossberg 500. The forend that comes with it is realy nice and Ide like to use it, but the end nut will not reach the threads. Do i need to buy a new adapter nut that is longer to secure my forend ? I saw one for sale by houge but wasnt sure if that would work on the knoxx forend ?? I realy like the forend sent by knoxx, would be a shame not to use it. What a waste to give that nice piece away and not give the adapter to use it ?? Thanks Noel
ANSWER : That forearm is designed for the 7 5/8″ slide action tube. I’m guessing yours is the 6 1/2″ slide action tube. Take the forearm off your tube and measure it with a ruler. From the very back edge of the action bar collar….that round part the bars are pinned to….all the way to the front edge of the threads. If yours is a 6 1/2″, the Hogue adapter won’t work. You’ll need to buy a new slide action tube. That Hogue adapter is meant to let you use the Hogue rubber coated forearm on your standard sized tube….the Hogue rubber forearm is a hair longer than the standard tube. It won’t give you the length to make up the entire shorter tube length. If you’re handy with a dremel, you could go adapter plus a bit of careful cutting but I won’t suggest you do it if you aren’t certain of your skills.
