By JetChopperDude from USA on 2012-07-27 18:55:49Things I liked:This gadget sure is a time saver..., not to mention a sure fire way to quell the frustration of trying to get where ya wanna be..., "hitting the thing yer shootin' at".
Things I would have changed:I had to return this particular device $35.25, to exchange it for the LaserLyte @ $59.99. The first Boresighter has six (6) different tips for inserting into the barrel. The threads on the three smallest calibers (naturally, the ones I need) were boogered up, only allowing the first two threads to start onto the stem of the boresighter. Since PA has a policy against returning damaged devices..., I called them for a determination. Actually, I kinda like the rubber tips on the CenterPoint, as they would sorta "balloon-up" when you turned the housing..., making a snug fit inside the barrel. While the LaserLyte has only five tips, they do work with a different design..., like little plastic "wings" that flare out, to snugly fit inside the bore. All things considered, there are limitations to some of these things..., but I'm glad I bought it, as it has saved me a LOT of time, and AMMO.
What others should know:In case you haven't made the effort (a suggestion from PA, for me)..., it might behoove you to adjust for any "droop" you could encounter, if using a scope. I adjusted my "windage-elevation" knobs to mid-range, then (sighting at 30 yards) I inserted a couple of thin plastic shims (plastic soda bottle) on the bottom of the rear scope ring. This brought the reticules a little closer to target alignment..., and I still had the latitude of adjustment with the 'windage-elevation' knobs, for the scope. I did all this BEFORE using the LASER. Additionally, ya better make sure those scope ring clamps are sufficiently snug. Just yesterday, when I thought everything was GREAT..., my shots were going in weird places. Noticed that my scope was slipping backwards, because of the recoil. Have to start all over...., AGAIN!! It's doubtful that you'll get a full-on accuracy with your initial use. The laser doesn't seem to be exactly precise with the physical bore of the weapon. I was taking four different checks with my laser (rotating 90-degrees each time), making a mark on my 'target', for each of the 90-degree rotations. At that point, I would look a the area within those four dots, and use that as a determination of what would most likely be a relative "in line" impact point..., then adjust my reticules accordingly. As this method seems to get me into the ballpark, because you're still gonna have to do a little tweaking.
