I went to the gunshow in my area today and bought a Delta style scope mount for a carry handle AR. The scope is an A1Optics...sure not the best but I got a good deal on it. Anyway, I can look though the iron sights and then the scope and its WAY OFF. I also took the upper half off to kinda bore sight it. After looking through the barrel, I looked through the scope and it needs shimming or something. I counted the clicks from one extreme to the other on the scope and "mechanically zeroed" it by leaving it in the middle. It was 506 clicks total, so I left it at 253rd click. I did this for both elevation and windage. Am I screwed or what? It's a nice 3x9x40 illuminated scope and it does bring in the light real well. I got this Delta style mount to replace the mount that came with the scope in hopes that the mount was the problem. No dice. Any ideas?
mounted to high.
any remedy for this to work will probably cost more than what you have into it.
