    shooting high and not staying sighted in , sounds like mounts/scope issue not the gun.

    Are the bases tight?

    Change scopes and see if still does it.

    Google MikeBellm and look at his website. The TC authority!!!!

    TC's have issues with loose hinge pins, read on Mike's site.

    Still sounds like base/scope though.

    I done the same thing , i tok the scope off and bases and used loctite on everything , My son put it in gunrack on 4 wheeler deer hunting season and he killed a deer with it . I shot it on paper and it was about 3inches high , i dont know if that was from riding in the gun rack or what , It has Nikon 3x9 scope on it . I called Mike Bellm and he told me i probably need his kit the pin sounds like is to small and its leeting the barrel move . I have to drive the pin in with ruber mallet but he said it doesnt matter .
