    I picked up a new Henry Long Ranger in 6.5 CRD. I mounted a new Leopold Tactical 3-9. Its is not the Firedot model, but the one under that. I mounted the scope with Burris medium rings with the supplied Skinner bases that came with the my LR model. At the range I confirmed the scope was tight, I put the colimator on it to center the recticle and banged away. The rifle shot to the right, horizontal axis was perfect, so I adjusted the scope back to the left to no avail. Its fully ranged to the left now with no further adjustment and it still shoots 4" right at 50 yds. Any suggestions? Unfortunately its sounds like an internal problem with the scope.

    You already know what’s wrong. Talk to the company, or look into a different scope brand.

    I don't know if you have any other scope lying around but i think you should try something else, or maybe a buddy's scope and see how it works out for you. Do a couple of tests to see if thing improves and then you can make a better choice. Take care.

    It appears that you may have already diagnosed your problem. And, as mentioned, “beg, borrow, or steal” another scope to verify the scope problem.

    I too, have scope problems, which seem irreparable.....I can’t seem to find a trophy deer or elk in my scope! :D

    Good Luck with finding/fixing your scope issues! memtb
