Writing as B.B. Pelletier
This report covers:
- The problems
- Problem 1 — All rifles are droopers!
- Problem 2 — horizontal alignment
- Problem 3 — scope eyepiece is in the wrong place
- What is the solution?
Today’s report was partly inspired by reader Decksniper, who asked this about the Seneca Aspen rifle:
“I am interested in the shim you used to mount the Bugbuster on the too narrow dovetail. A closeup picture would be helpful.”
I told him I would photograph the shim in the next part about the Aspen, and I will, but this morning (yesterday for you) I was faced with scoping another rifle — the Diana Stormrider Generation II PCP, and it suddenly dawned on me that scoping airguns is one of the biggest challenges I face in writing this blog. As I pondered that it occurred to me that scoping guns is a challenge for all of us. Some may not have realized what a challenge it is because they have become adept in avoiding the problem altogether, but a challenge it is.
