Find out who is the best gunsmith in your area and seek them out. GOOD choice for scope you won't be disappointed with the Bushnell.

We just got a new Gander Mountain store in our area and got some new customers because of their gun smith.

 

We've had two different guys stop by to see if we could determine what was wrong with their scope they bought and had mounted and boresighted by Gander Mountain's gunsmith.  Both complained they could not even get on paper at 100 yards.

 

First set up half of the ring screws (4/8) not tightened to their correct in/lb setting and one of the base screws not tightened at all.

 

Second set up had the rear ring all the way to one side and used up all the scope's windage to trying to boresight it.

 

Scope mounting and boresighting is not gun smithing but its not rocket science either.  Any competent smith should be able to properly do it in my opinion.  This is just two stories from one store and hopefully is not a sign of how all the Gander Mountain smiths are.
