What Can Cause a Rifle Scope to Fail to Hold a Zero After Zeroing It? The most common problems with holding zero are excessive recoil, abuse, improper installation, damaged scope or defective scope, poor quality or incorrect scope mounts or the firearm itself.
Optical Repairs Services.

We have been offering a comprehensive range of optical repairs for over 30 years. We repair and overhaul a wide range of optical devices which include both vintage and more current types of riflescopes , binoculars and the like.

Magnification Power

So, for example, if your scope is 4x magnification, that means it has one magnification setting that allows you to see your target at four times larger than its real size. This type of scope is called a fixed scope because it has one fixed setting.

Throughout your shooting career, you`ll find that you will need to “zero” your rifle scope. Zeroing a rifle scope is the act of aligning the scope or optic with the barrel so that the crosshairs match where the bullet is going to fall.
It doesn`t happen often, but when your optics go awry, you need to act decisively. Scope problems in the field can be insidious, and if you suspect you have a problem and can`t isolate it, sometimes you`re better off borrowing another rifle.
The 1x setting is perfect visibility at close range and the 6x is a clear shot to 250 yards.
As it says in the name, the magnification range on this scope is 1-6. The field of view at 100 yards is 110 feet on 1 power and 19.3 feet on 6 power…
In most cases, a pricier scope is going to have more robust construction and more rigid internals than a scope at a lower cost. Great optical resolution and clear lenses don`t mean a thing if the scope won`t hold its zero or adjust reliably.
Many things can happen to low-quality optics in the cold. However, the best cold-weather rifle scopes will not be damaged by cold temperatures. Extremely cold temperatures can cause some materials, such as metal screws and springs, to become brittle and some parts to seize as lubricants freeze.
The 50mm objective lens on the Sniper 4-16x50mm Riflescope provides you with zoom capabilities from 4X to 16X. This makes for a nice range of magnification, allowing you to do some serious shooting out to 400 yards or further.
Sights With 1-4x Magnification

This level of magnification is great for target shooting up to approximately 100 meters, hunting smaller game, or simply defending your property. Scopes in this magnification range display up to four times larger than the actual target.

With the ability to get an accurate sight picture from 100-500 yards, this scope is perfect for close quarters combat and mid-range situations. That`s what makes it so great for your AR-15 and 3-gun competitions. On top of that, the parallax is fixed and I haven`t noticed any kind of distortion.
Zeroing your scope is dialing in your reticle so that the point of aim matches the point of impact. Many shooters will set that at 100 yards because most ranges are 100 yards.
Your zero point depends on what your main purpose is with your rifle and the caliber and specific cartridge you use most. If you are using your new scope on an eastern hunting rifle, you will likely never shoot farther than 300 yards. This means you do not really have to worry about a long zero.
1. Large shot-to-shot variance in Point of Impact with known accurate loads. 2. Uneven tracking (either vertical or horizontal).
Scope can be stored both unopened or opened for a period of 3 years. For best results, keep it in a cool dry area, away from heat or direct sunlight.
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.
At 6x magnification, you should be able to shoot out to 1000 yards, although not extremely accurately. The sweet spot is closer to 400 yards for optimum clarity and accuracy. This is great for 3 gun competitions and most hunting situations.
8-32x magnification is perfect for long-range shots, and is more than adequate for hitting small game and competition targets at 500 yards, or more. Hunters may find that the Mueller Target Scope is a bit much for some of the shorter hunting distances, but will be well served if a longer shot is mandatory.
Leupold proudly provides its optics to the United States military, law enforcement, and government agencies across the country, and to the armed forces of many of our nation`s closest allies. Waterproof, fogproof, and guaranteed to perform for life, the Mark 5HD is backed by the company`s legendary Lifetime Guarantee.
For most people who hunt between 50 and 500 yards, a 3-15 magnification range will be more than enough.
The 1-6×24 LPVO design with its fast focus eyepiece is perfect for quick target acquisition, both at close quarters and out as far as 600 yards. That`s ideal for the AR shooters who will be the most frequent buyers of this optic.
The basic premise surrounding the objective diameter is the larger it is, the more light is allowed into the scope and ultimately transmitted to your eye. And, the larger it is, the ability to see detail increases as there is a larger “sweet” spot in the lens itself.
The most powerful zoom riflescope series in the world, the March-X Series, has a 10x magnification ratio zoom range capable of focusing from 10 yards to infinity. With the capability to set any position as the zero point in elevation, the shooter will never lose the starting calibration.

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.

Yamaha waverunner My 800xl will run, but will not get up to speed. When you first give it throttle it will take off fine, at first, then its as though some sensor holds it back. It begins idling rough if not shut off. Let it site for a minute and it will restart and do the same thing. Or it will let you idle back to short. But get into throttle and it bogs down. I’m thinking some sensor has identified a problem and holding it back to keep it from, I don’t know “Burning up”.
Any One have any idea’s. On tight bugget but still want to play.

Thanks for Any Help

ANSWER : Well if you have no money to fix it then no use figuring out what is wrong. Sorry but repairs take money, I am sure this is at least a $200-$400 USD repair job. Check your fuel pressure first.

I have a Kohler Condidant 5 Generator that will run as long as you hold the start button in. It dies when you let off. I have a harness for the remote switch but no switch – It also will start the generator when you cross the red and black wire and run as long as you hold them together. There are 3 wires to the main switch and 5 to the remote switch. Does the starter stay engaged the whole time you hold the start switch or does the computer release the starter once it is running? The Generator is producing electricity because I tested it while holding the start button. Some where is a wire that shold tell it to keep running. I have read online many descriptions of the same problem, most are told the board is bad so they replace it and still have the problem. Have not found a solution. Talked to a marine machanic today and he said he fixed his friends generator doing the same thing by running a bypass wire but he couldnt remember exactly what he did it was a long time ago. Can anyone help me. Thank you
ANSWER : The problem is either the ballast resistor or the starter bypass relay. The bypass relay should be part of the starter solenoid. I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly where the ballast resistor is located. It should be a physically fairly large resistor made of ceramic. It should be retangular roughly 1.5″-3″ long and 3/8″-1/2″ accross with a wire on each end. It could also be a coil of wire mounted on a phenolic board.
If you need more help just add a comment and I’ll respond as soon as I get the message.

I rebuilt both carbs and both clutches it starts and runs fine but when I try to move it just boggs down- no power? Where should l look next to get this thing moving again? I work at a Marina that used to service sno-mobiles so I have the tools to get it done. Could you maybe send me an assembly diagram of where to look and what to do next? Thanks
ANSWER : For an assembly diagram, contact Yamaha directly.

I have a 2001 Yamaha XL700Z Waverunner. The compression on both cylinders is about 120, it starts and runs fine – dry. Won’t quite idle, but I can start it and rev it up fine (for a short period, of course). However, as soon as it gets in the water, it will barely run – it will start and sputter and you cannot get it to run more than a few seconds or rev up. Take it back out, let it dry, starts & revs fine. It is not getting any water in the casing that I can tell, its almost as if water is getting something wet through the cooling system that I cannot see?
ANSWER : Try cleaning the carbs and the fuel lines, filter
