2nd the new LUMI-ZONE being a 40 mm scope compared to the VARI-ZONE which is 32mm , means that useing strandard low mount rings , the scope hits the rail mount so a small spacer placed on the ring mount under the scope raises the scope up just enough to clear the rail ( I used a piece of zip tie). It is either grind down the rail or use a spacer, [/b]
Next a good rifle rest which has a level on it and some way of holding the xbow to it is very helpfull for the next several steps, take a sheet of white paper and put a square cross on it 1/8" thick lines are fine, useing a level tape this piece of paper to a wall about 12' away in your line of sight of the xbow[/img]
Next useing a small lazer pointer placed in the rail and under the string , adjust the rifle rest and xbow so that the red dot of the laser is on the cross of your paper target. keeping a small level on the riser mount keeps the xbows limbs level.
Next your scope should be mounted loosely to the rings , useing the windage adjusting screws on the MILLETT rings, adjust them so the vertical part of the cross hairs is in line with your targets vertical line .
make sure the lazer's red doot stays in the center of the target while you do any adjustments.
Once this step is complete, use your scopes elivation adjusting screws to bring the horizontal crosshair onto the targets horizontal line . Keep an eye on the lazers dot makeing sure it stays on the targets center.[img]
You now are lazer sighted in and will be able to start shooting to fine tune your scope without worry of sending a bolt into the next county. I hope this info. helps some of you guys out GREYWOLF
