Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results

Bore sighted rifle with Bushnell Standard bore sighter. Good results with other rifles and scopes. The Sportview, however , when zeroed, fired way off of the mark. Attempts to make the scope match the hits failed due to very limited adjustment on the scope. Back to zero on the Bore Sighter and I could only lower the cross hairs one bar below zero. Maybe four bars above zero. Limited left and right adjustment also. Hits seem to have only slight relationship to adjustments. Using the iron sights had much better and more consistant results.

Bushnell Sportview rifle scope wide angle 4x38 T4389 limited adjustment inconsistant results


Hello, I had the same problem but was able to solve it by shimming the scope mounts with a thin piece of plastic. Put it under the rear to raise the sighting and under the front to lower. I still plan to buy my son a better scope.

My center point 4-16x40 adventure series scope..the elevation adjustment does not work at all....it is not caused by droop or the adjustment being wound up...it never worked at all out of the box...does not move the crosshair...i tried fooling with it a little...but nothing...anybody have this problem and know how to fix?


Loosen the locking ring at the base of the adjustment. Tighten the hex screw at the center of the adjustment wheel. That will solve the problem. I had the same issue with mine.

Sight adjustments How do you make sight adjustments on the sportview scope


It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that very same spot. To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction. If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right. Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

I am unable to adjust the elevation? It seems to be stuck at 10 inches below center at 100 yards and 4 inches at 50 yards on a 243 rifle. Nothing I do moves it up?


If the scope is out of adjustments and still low, you have to shim the rear base. I'd start with two thicknesses of beer can.
