    Would I be better off using a laser and open sights or a red dot sight for rats?

    hello, i am not sure whether anyone will help here as I am probably in the wrong area of the orum, however i am new to air rifle shooting and only do target shooting, i currently own a Hatsan s1000 fitted with a hawke 3-9X40, i wear glasses and made this point at the shop so did my best to try the scope however i struggle to see the mil dots on the reticle due to the lighting in the range i go to, my problem is winter range is indoor of both 18 yards and 56 yards (very optimistic for me and my rifle i understand), whilst the outdoor range for summer is again upto 50 yards, my question which is going to make me sound completely stupid is if i had a IR scope for indoor would i still be able to see the mil dot reticle with the illumination turned off?, or would i just have more look going for say a 3-9X50 scope?

    I have focused the eye piece, the problem I have is the light can vary within the indoor range, and the targets are primarily dark coloured, making it difficult for me to see the black mil dot reticle on the scope, now I have used a different scope a Nikko mountmaster however I not sure whether it was 3-9 or 4-12 but was definitely a X50mm scope, this seemed better prior to purchasing my scope but I don't know whether that is just because of the way the scope was set up, the light on the day or because of the greater amount of light entering the scope

    Excellent, I am a newbie and have no knowledge whatsoever about telescopic sights. I was about to post a plea for help then I saw this. I very much appreciate your taking the time to post this.
    Thank you

    Has anyone used any apps to calculate the adjustments for zeroing?

    Hi, I have a Nikko Stirling Diamond 3-1256 30mm Illuminated #4 Dot scope and the object lens is set way beyond what I need I want to refocus the object lens for a 25 metre range but the locking ring is stuck fast, I ha ve tried all fair means to get it turning without damaging it or marking it in any way but it just will not budge. I have removed the end rings from all my other scopes in the past (none have had an adjustable objective) and refocused the lens mount and then locked it all back in place but this one will not move, am I missing something? The sight has come as part of a package on a Walther rm8 and without it the deal is not so good so I really need to sort this out. Any suggestions, are there specialist tools I'm not aware of, is it something Manchester Air Guns might be able to take care of? Thanks, Steve.
