SO! Frustrated and disappointed I walked back into the house from the short range on the property because I just cannot get my Sub2000 2nd gen to Zero. I purchased the mount and rear sights back in Sept 2019. I immediately installed and zeroed the bushnell red dot. Ran like a sewing machine on some crazy old ladies desk. Smashing steal, FAST & CHEAP just how I love it.
Fast forward to first part of March and I wanted to try to put the Vortex Viper on the mount. It would absolutely not zero. All over the paper. I thought to myself, maybe I’m just having an off day? Happens to us all right? Put it back in the cabinet and left it alone for a few days. Pulled it back out and SAME PROBLEM. I took the Viper off and now I can’t get the Bushnell that was originally on the rifle to zero either.
I mounted both optics to a standard AR, bore-sighted, and BAM zeroed in 6 rounds EACH. So I ruled out several things. One, the optics. I ran off probably 25 round each on a different rifle and they both held zero on a much more powerful rifle. I’m at a loss.
There’s only two other possible options. One, the MCARBO mount. Two, the rifle. I’m stumped and it’s been a long time since I’ve been stumped. Let me preface this by saying “it’s not me”. I’m prior active duty army, competition shooter, current Sheriff’s Deputy, SWAT/ K9. I eat, breath, and sh!t shooting. I also asked several other competent shooters to try it. NADDA.
Has anyone else had such an issue. I’m talking bullets walking 12 or more inches at 25 yards?
Any, and I mean absolutely ANY ideas and thoughts are welcome here. I love this rifle and I REALLY want it to work.
