Remington 700 ADL scope reflection of barrel?
« on: April 16, 2008, 05:51:30 PM »
Grrr. Okay, after getting my blue loctite ready for mounting bases on my Remington 700 ADL.. I have a problem. I first put my scope on the rifle, to make sure everything fit. The ojective end of the scope sits about .200 of an inch above the barrel. The eye relief is perfect. Everything seems fine, until I look through my scope. I can see a slight blurry reflection of my long (26in.) barrel, in the bottom 1/4 of the scopes viewing area. I know it is the barrel's end because I can put my hand on it and see my blurry hand too. Am I gonna have to raise up my ring height? There is nothing wrong with the scope when it's not mounted. It just seems like it is too low to the barrel. I am using weaver grand slam bases and mounts. The mounts are high mounts (supposedly for scopes up to 44mm) and my scope is a Nikon Monarch 2.5x10x42. Any ideas or other mounting suggestions? Is this normal for a 26in. barrel? Anyone else ever had this problem?

I have never had these problems I'd contact Nikon before investing any .Maybe they have a soultion and might send you what you need.

I also failed to mention that the reflection only shows up on the low power/ wider field of view settings. From 2.5-4 power is when you can see it. If you turn to any stronger power it goes away. So, perhaps moving the scope a little higher might fix it? I also called Nikon and the tech guy said he had never heard of that, almost like he didn't believe me anyway. He said it did have a lifetime warrantly and that I could sent it in to be looked at now or later on if I wanted to try shooting it first. I'm starting to think now that the Nikon lens are working so hard that they are gathering up the reflection..even at the low power settings. Perhaps I'll try taller rings. I've never seen this before either.

well, I've been rackin' my brain too trying to figure it out...  I did find out that putting super-tall rings on the gun and then putting the scope in them.. eliminates the problem.  ??? And the lower mounting rings that I got ( really high weaver size)..if you put a shim of some type up under the front ring.. it also eliminates the problem..   so I guess I'm just gonna have to get taller rings. Everything else is fine. The quality of glass.. everything.. wierd it is.

Have you tried moving the scope forward more in the rings? 1/4 of an inch or so might fix the problem..... especially if you are only catching the tip of the barrel in the scopes line of sight.

Can you put a sunshade on the scope?

I have a red dot on a handgun that picks up funny blurry images, and using the sunshade cleared it up.

If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Sounds like you got the problem fixed and also got some other good ideas  to go with it. Scopes gone wrong can and are a bad thing had an experience with a Bushnell some 15 years ago and sent it in ( would not hold zero)  sent me a new one , yep same thing we went round and round with them. They said that I MST b using it on a very high recoling rifle and I replied that  it was .223 never got one from them that worked so I took it to the range and put a bucket under it and shot it! At least I felt better about it. Never have got one thing from Bushnell since.
