Hi guys. Need help in zeroing my Hensol Diatal 8x52 scope. Bought it from eBay and just fit it to rifle but without adjustment I am way under the target. I have opened a scopes' only cap with adjustment fittings but I have not got a clue. Loco All I could see: there are 4 screws under the cap, one of them is silver colour and 3 in black colour. I guess that the silver screw there is to fix all adjustments in position but what about the other 3 black screws ? I've tried to turn them one by one and had some shots on target however it does not seem to produce any effect on either vertical or horizontal alignment. Can anyone help with explanation please. Thank you in advance Sharp Shooter

From my treasure chamber:

Instructions for sighting in Zeiss (Hensoldt) riflescopes

 

After mounting a riflescope on a weapon, the gunsmith zeroes the riflescope for a specific range, i.e. the line of sight is aligned with the bore axis of the barrel in such a way that the point of impact and the aiming point coincide at a specific distance.

 

As the trajectory is curved, the bore axis and the line of sight form an angle which is dependent on the type of ammunition used and the range. At longer or shorter ranges than the sighting-in distance or when the line of sight is not horizontal (in the mountains), the shooter will aim above or below his target to compensate for the difference in distance.

 

If a riflescope is correctly mounted on an weapon, it is generally not necessary to readjust the line of sight relative to the weapon. If a re-adjustment is necessary for special reasons or if a riflescope/weapon combination is to be zeroed for a new range, proceed as follows:

 

1. Unscrew the protective cap (1).

 

2. Only loosen the bright, chrome-plated screw (2).

Do not loosen the three dark, painted screws (3)!)

 

3. Using the knurled disc (4), you can now adjust the reticle as required.

To correct a high shot, turn the disk (4) counterclockwise.

To correct a low shot, turn the disk (4) clockwise.

 

4. Re-tighten the bright screw (2); do not use force, otherwise the fine thread of the elevation adjustment will be damaged.

 

5. Check the point of impact. If necessary, repeat the procedure as described until the result obtained is satisfactory.

 

6. Loosen the three painted screws (3).

Turn the graduated ring (5) until its index line is opposite the marking (6). This index allows you to make adjustments of a defined magnitude during sighting in. In addition, this index enables you to find the zero position again if, in special cases, the adjustment was changed. The index can also be used to indicate the reticle adjustments for other ranges and types of ammunition after additional markings for these ranges and types of ammunition have been provided.

 

7. Re-tighten the three screws (3).

 

8. Screw the protective cap (1) back on. Take care not to squash the rubber gasket (7)!.

To correct the windage adjustment, proceed in the same manner.

To correct a shot to turn left, turn the disk (4) clockwise.

To correct a shot to the right, turn the disk (4) counterclockwise.

 

 

Adjustment range of the reticle in cm/100m ( in./100yds) at one revolution

 

Diasta/Diatal 4x32 100cm/ revolution (36 in./ revolution)

Diasta/Diatal 6x42 70cm/ revolution (25 in./ revolution)

Diasta/Diatal 8x32 50cm/ revolution (18 in./ revolution)

Diavari 1,5-6x42 110cm/ revolution (39 in./ revolution)

Diavari 2,5-10x52 65cm/ revolution (23 in./ revolution)

I just remembered this:

http://www.opticstalk.com/hensoldt-wetzler-4x-scope-adjustments_topic14717.html

I saved this in case my scope was full of solidified grease (it wasn´t Cool)

I bought a set of Burris Signature rings with Pos-Align inserts that remedied the fact that there was no windage adjustment on my scope.

Hello Gerry Atric
Thank you ever so much for your posts for a topic I raised. Now it is all clear as a day light! Windage adjustment is a problem on my current scope mounts and I am dealing with it. Looking into Burris Signature rings and Pos-Align inserts. Once get all sorted I shall make some pics to show.
With best regards
Krilia
