  1. 1

    Prepare a shooting bench with a gun vice or other type of support.

  2. 2

    Place the target at the distance recommended by the laser-bore-sight instructions.

  3. 3

    Place the adaptor that is labelled for the calibre of weapon you are using onto the laser bore sight. Make sure that you are using the correct adaptor for your firearm. Using the wrong adaptor can cause the laser sight to be inaccurate.

  4. 4

    Insert the bore-sight into the barrel of the firearm; turn on the laser. Make sure that the laser is secure within the barrel.

  5. 5

    Place the weapon into the gun vice or other firearm support and point it at the target.

  6. 6

    Adjust the firearm until the laser is directly on the bullseye of the target.

  7. 7

    Adjust the gun sights or scope so that it is aligned with the laser and the bullseye. The process used in adjusting your sights or scope will depend on the manufacturer of the weapon or the scope. Read the manufacturer's instructions for detail in adjusting your sights.

  8. 8

    Turn off the laser and remove it from the barrel. Fire a live round at the target to ensure that the bullet will hit near where the laser indicated. Make any additional adjustments if necessary.
