I just put a big Leapers scope on my 1250 (extra long with the sunshade) and noticed the front end was not lined with the barrel but instead off to one side. Upon taking off the scope I see the scope rail is not in perfect alignment, but "wanders" some to the left at its front end. (I closely inspected the scope rings but they're perfectly identical, so they're not a factor at all.) Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so, how have you fixed it? I wonder if one might file down one side of a scope ring, and shim the other side, but it seems it would be tricky to get it exactly right, and one would still end up going by guesswork, and results might not be quite as desired. Thanks for any advice, comments, etc. I bought the gun new so should be able to send it in for replacement under warranty, right?

I put a cheap 4x32 scope on the refurb .177 and shot for groups today. I must say the .177 is pretty accurate with Kodiak pellets. Much better than I anticipated. Will post pics later. If I were you I would take advantage of the GUSA warranty.

using, you did not mention the type.
Turn one ring with the clamping screws facing to the left and the other ring with the clamping screws facing to the right.
If you notice a difference in the alignment you are using rings that are not centered for the 11mm scope rail.

You said the rail was off centered, can you visually see this without the scope mounted, if so and your certain its crooked send the gun back in for warrenty repair.

...the front is to the left and I think even the back may not be centered properly.
