Rifle scopes are great for getting up close and personal with targets or small game, but a scope that hasn't been properly adjusted can lead to blurry images and a missed shot. Air rifles often come with scopes, and most models can be upgraded to accept a wide variety of optics. Almost all rifle scopes contain an adjustment knob on the eye-side of the optics that can be adjusted to compensate for field-of-view and blurry images.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the eyepiece. This is the part of the scope closest to your eye while shooting.

  2. 2

    Locate the focus ring on the end of the eyepiece, which is usually a thin ring.

  3. 3

    Shoulder the rifle and aim at a target at least 10 yards away.

  4. 4

    Turn the focus ring clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the focus to your eye, while looking down the scope at the target.

  5. 5

    Continue to move the focus ring back and forth until the target is crisp and sharp.

Tips and warnings

  • Make adjustments to the focus ring for targets that are farther away or closer.
