New Scope great and Old scope problems
Some may have remembered seeing my new 10/22 build here:
If not, well, you can see it there :rolleyes:
Anyway, I had originally purchased a:
which I found at midwayusa. Reviews looked good and I didn't want to spend a fortune on a 10/22 scope.
Mueller Tactical Rifle Scope 8.5-25x 44mm Adjustable Objective Mil-Dot Reticle Matte Black
I was disappointed to say the least when after mounting, remounting, and remounting again I was consistantly getting shot patterns 1' below target at 50yrds. That was with the elevation knob cranked to full height!
So I slapped that little old cheapie airgun red dot I had on it and sure enough it shot straight and true. Not to be outdone and my curiousity piqued, I ordered another scope for further comparison.
I ordered a:
which I found at Natchez.
BSA 30mm 3X Mag. Tactical Red, Green, Blue Dot Sight
As of this week I have tested:
- old cheapie red dot from an old airgun(model maker unknown),
- The Meuller listed above,
- The BSA Red 3x Red Dot listed above,
- and I pulled the BSA Holosight I had on my AR and tried it as well
Out of all 4 of those, the only one consistantly off is the Meuller. The BSA Red Dot took 4 elev clicks up and 2 elev clicks right and it's now dead on at 50yrds. The BSA Holosight I didn't even have to rezero, it was dead on from the start. The cheapie old airgun red dot needed readjustment after the first 5 shots, but was holding at zero without any major adjustments up/down/left/right or otherwise.
So I guess this leaves me with sending the Meuller back to the manufacturer. Anyone else every have this kind of problem with that brand/model scope before? Or am I just missing some basic scope troubleshooting step besides basic 50yrd zeroing?
I guess I should post pics of the scopes, but I'm not at home(visiting fam). I'll try to remember to upload the pics of the various scope/sighting options tried when I get home at some point this weekend.
