My cheapskate neighbor bought his 93R17 Savage over and said he was having trouble zeroing the scope. It was a used gun he had just bought. It had an old USA Redfield 3X9 scope that he had mounted in a set of Weaver rings on the factory bases.
Sure enough, with the windage adjusted all the way “R” it was still shooting 6” left at 50 yards. I removed the scope, and checked the bases, rings, and everything looks square and straight. I believe the scope is bad… he wants me to “shim” it because he can’t afford a new one.
I have never tried to do that before with Weaver rings. What do you guys think? Can it be done where it stays on zero? Any help is appreciated.
