Problems with IOR 2.5-10 X 56.


I bought a IOR scope 1.5-10X56 and set it up to my SAKO TRG with Sako optilock rings.

I cant screw the rear ringts tight because If I do that I canīt change power (2.5-10).

Does anyone have the same(similar) problems??
Is the problem because me???????????

Best regard.

Measure the diameter of the tube. It might be oversized and not true 30mm.

You try to get closer to the target,..and I keep trying to get further away.

Your getting the cap screws to tight on the rear. Loosen them up a bit and you'll be good to go.

The tolerences in the rear of the scope are very close. It's pretty easy to bind up the power adjustments.

Let me know if you need anything.

Had sorta the same problem when I used Warn rings on a 16x.If I tightened them at all the focus ring would not adjust.Used a different set of rings and problem didnt happen.
Some rings are not designed to be tightened against each other rather they are torqued...Badgers and NF come to mind.
