run out of elevation adjustment Nikon scope

I'm mounting a Nikon Monarch 5-20x44SF scope on my Ruger 10-22 and I cannot get it adjusted down low enough with the scope maxed out. It needs about 2" more adjustment "down" to line up poi at 50yds.

Can I buy rings for this?

Just shim it with aluminum foil.

You need to get the other mount(s) for it. Those are for the AR.

Scope Problem

Tape,

It sounds like your rings are too High. I mounted a Burris 4x16x40MM scope on my 10/22 with Warne Low mount rings which leaves about 3/16" clearance off the barrel and have no problem with my elevation adjustment out to 100yds.

gk, it doesn't matter at the moment, the rear screw on the scope mount stripped. I got an RMA and sending it to Ruger tomorrow. Thanks for your reply.

I use aluminum foil to shim up scopes all the time. Works great IMO.

If its shooting to high, take the top scope mount cap off, and slide a folded up piece of foil under the front of the scope between the underside of the scope and the mount.

Opposite if shooting to low,, slide a piece under the rear of the scope.

I do try and make the foil about the same size as the ring for width. But you cant have it too long as the scope wont sit down in the ring. about 3 or 4 layered fold usually does the trick. Good luck.

shim

I've always used the thin aluminum from soda cans for scope mount shims. Easy to cut.
