Ditto-TW56

I don't use the spring. If it is there, I back it off.

Actually, you pull the scope back before the next shot.

I actually made a video on how to remove the spring, or change crosshairs.

Outstanding!! Thanks! I will watch it tonight!

I have two scopes. The rifle wears a 16x Litschert now and I have a 10x Unertl as well that Iíd really like to find an 8x eyepiece for.

The Litschert seems to be the stickier of the two but I have gently greased the mount to tube contacts and loosened the springs and hopefully some shooting will help loosen that up a bit? Shooting right now without the spring engaged Iím not sure the scope would move very much.

I got 15 rounds through it today and the middle five round group was pretty good with just S&B standard ammo. The last group fell apart because the mount loosened up and slid forward, I only had it finger snug it will be something I check regularly from now on.

I've only used the spring for .22 LR target rifles. For heavier recoiling rifles, not using the spring puts less stress on the scope and helps keep from getting a scope in the eye.

Iím onboard with that but that only works if the scope can move more or less freely? Thatís the part I need to fix.

You could unscrew the front mount spring housing cap and check out the spring and the plunger bearing. Check for gummed up oil/grease and burrs.

O-ring? Never seen or heard of that before. If someone added it to the scope, you should probably remove it.

Pictures would help, but they are a pain to post here (for me... I don't want to subscribe to adds or whatever imgur has).

Dan Stangarone here. My carrier Verizon ceased all email about 6 months ago, so my email is now;

ds1911@icloud.com

If you guys need any wire, its business as usual. 10 feet for $15 via US mail , shipping included to lower 48. US Postal Money order, Paypal or cash.. I have either Fine (.0005"). Or Medium (.0015"). Its annealed Tungsten that is extremely strong and shows up jet black. Wire goes out the same day I receive payment. No waiting..

PM or email if you need any.
