Been at the range today with my new favourite toy, a BSA CF2 in .270. What should have been a reasonably simple sighting in procedure for the scope I put on the rifle turned into an epic test of patience which resulted in the realisation that
A. I'm a muppet who at some point during the process probably adjusted the reticule the wrong way.
and worse, B. The scope mounts I got with the rifle are crap. As we scratched our heads over the cause of my wandering POI it became obvious. The front ring had slid forward on the base and dragged the scope with it through the rear ring.
So, I'm looking now for either a fix, or preferably a better alternative. I don't know much about this, but my brother in law reckons they're Parker Hale mounts. I don't know what the rings are, and as I said the rifle is a BSA CF2 .270 which I believe has a long action.
Any suggestions. Ideally I'd like not to spend a fortune. Before anyone asks, yes I have tried tightening all the screws. Although that in itself was a pain as they seem to be a totally non standard hex key, so I had to improvise with a Torx bit
Thanks in advance!
