    Ive allways wonderd why its nesessary to put shims under a scope that is designed for use on air rifles, A typical scope would be the Nite-hawke range.

    Does anyone have this problem and can you tell me why


    Cheers
    David

    Shims

    Hi David, Do you mean in the scope cradle or between the mount and groove?

    Hi David, For example,Sometimes you may find that no matter how far you screw "UP" or "Down" on the scope it Isn't far enough to zero.
    You shouldn't go that far up/down anyway.
    If you find that you have to adjust your elevation too much you can place a thin sheet of a stable material in the bottom of the mount,which will tip up one end of the scope.
    Its and old method, compensating mounts are available and are a bit more scope friendly.
    Cheers.
