Feeling rather embarrassed at the moment but after posting the above, I need to clear up the issue with my scopeThis is nice (sarcasm). I just got mine back from Burris after sending it in because the level was quite inaccurate. Moving to the left, it said level till it was about 7 degrees out of level and to the right, it said level until about 4 degrees out. Burris said that was out of Spec, so they recalibrated it. Once recalibrated, they said it was corrected and within specs. It should now show as out of level at about 3 degrees. That still is not great in my mind though.
Anyway, the scope came back in the mail yesterday. After seeing this thread today, I put the scope back on the crossbow to see if it was tight or had movement as described in this thread . I remounted it twice and checked the screws to make sure all were tight, which they were.
When mounted, the scope will rock back and forth , left/right and I can visibly see movement where the brackets connect behind the right/left adjustment - circled in the photo
So, I sent another email back to Burris to see their response .
Getting pretty frustrated. I will be curious to see the response I get and others get on this thread.
The movement of the scope is not an issue for my scope anymore . After thinking about a post I made, after the above one, on how the elevation and windage set screws work, I realized they could be the issue. I had not checked those to see if they were tight, only the ones connecting the scope to the bracket and the ones attaching to the bow rail.
When I got home from work, I checked and the elevation set screw was not tightened. Once I tightened it, there was no movement of the scope.
Since those set screws allow for the scope to move for sighting in, it makes sense they need to be tight or the scope can move. I do hope though, the set screws hold up, they are very small.
All though I don’t like the “about 3 degree” level tolerance , I really do like the rest of the scope. I’ll just have to put a bubble level on it.
