Many people are frustrated by scopes that don’t seem to point in the direction where they’re shooting. Watch this video to find out how to get pinpoint accuracy with a scope. Some rifles have drooping barrels. This isn’t uncommon in airguns AND firearms! Any gun can have droop, regardless of its powerplant or how it’s cocked. To overcome the droop issue, you have a couple choices. One is to shim your scope mount, and the other is to use a special mount. Shimming is probably the easiest and least costly method. If you’re not familiar with shimming, everything is explained in this video. Watch to see how these solutions work.

Thank you very, very much. This explains quite a lot!!
Please keep up the good work.
Sincerely and with the greatest respect,
Well done! Thanks for the great explanation.
So, shimming works for most scopes and mounts? What materials can I use for shimming?
The two most common materials are tin from a soda can and plastic from a 2-liter soda bottle.
