great value

[...] Use this as I feel a bore sight should be used, and it works fine. You should not expect to put one in the x ring on your first shot. You should expect to hit the paper and refine from there. Not a bad design, I didn't really understand how it worked until I tried. There are several sizes of plastic collets that screw on the end. You expand the collet until it just hits the rifling of your barrel. Slide the bore sight in until the wide taper is snug to your muzzle, then turn the bore ...

[...] Use this as I feel a bore sight should be used, and it works fine. You should not expect to put one in the x ring on your first shot. You should expect to hit the paper and refine from there. Not a bad design, I didn't really understand how it worked until I tried. There are several sizes of plastic collets that screw on the end. You expand the collet until it just hits the rifling of your barrel. Slide the bore sight in until the wide taper is snug to your muzzle, then turn the bore sight a touch more to tighten the collet and draw the taper tight to the muzzle. When I chucked the bore sight in a cheap lathe at work and turned the lathe by hand, the laser dot drew about a 4" circle at 80ft. When I put the bore sight in scoped rifles that I knew were sighted in, the dot was right on the crosshair left to right and as much below as I would expect for the range. The cheap lathe probably exacerbated the runout I saw. I tried this in a .22 rifle, .22 pistol, .45 acp pistol, 12 gauge rifled barrel shotgun and it worked perfect. When I tried it in a .223 AR-15 I found the taper touched the flash suppressor instead of the muzzle which I suspect might cause misalignment. I had no problems with the switch, though I can see how there could be issues. For the money, a very good value! Only wish it would fit .177 also.

Bushnell has poor quality and service

I bought this due to the great price. However, 2 issues were encountered to make this a poor quality item. The on/off switch is a joke! It is fixable by inserting two washers up against the battery like others recommended. The other issue is that the cheaply made arbors does not expand evenly, meaning that when I insert it to the barrel (I did this several times to serveral rifles), I look at the red dot vs my scope, align it, but then if I turn the boresighter in a circle while still in the ...

I bought this due to the great price. However, 2 issues were encountered to make this a poor quality item. The on/off switch is a joke! It is fixable by inserting two washers up against the battery like others recommended. The other issue is that the cheaply made arbors does not expand evenly, meaning that when I insert it to the barrel (I did this several times to serveral rifles), I look at the red dot vs my scope, align it, but then if I turn the boresighter in a circle while still in the barrel, the red dot moves and creates a circle of about 5 in diameter at about 40feet. So it does not get you centered. I called Bushnell's customer service hoping to get a new arbor, but the rep was a inconpetent and refused. Instead she sent me to tech support, which I waited on hold for over 30 minutes on two occassions, and each time I got fed up and hung up. I will NEVER buy Bushnell again, as their product is poor quality and service even worse!

Disapointed

By

from Westminster Co.  -  Occasional Shooter

The first one I bought I sent back because the laser wasn't coming on. The second one I recieved- The laser wasn't centered in the bore sighter. Also the one pictured was not the one that I recieved. Not accurate.

Nice & Easy

By

from Ferndale, MI  -  Hunter

This is a definate improvement over the prior model that had problems with the on/off switch. I happened to use this to bore sight my 50 caliber muzzle loader. I put the target out at 50 yards, used the boresight and the 1st 3 rounds were only 4 clicks off center. Saved a lot of powder and bullets.

Bushnell Laser Boresighter

By

from Ramona, CA  -  Occasional Shooter

Nice compact product,great price/value for the $; easy to carry in range bag(fairly fragile), needed to 'O' laser; not a big deal;tool provided; use reflective tape for target if operating in daylight, be careful with threads for bore arbors; they are VERY fine and can be cross-threaded easily. Lube those threads with light grease before use. Gets you close before you head to the range to fine tune your sights; saves on ammo! Also: Great service, fast delivery, resonable price from Adorama. A++++

Get me close

By

from Lowell, Ma  -  Hunter

Easy to use once you figure out how to attach and adjust the arbors correctly. Directions are a bit lacking and could use a bit more information. With that aside once you get how to use it, it does work very well. You do have to use it in very low light conditions so get to the range before dust get set up and be ready for optimum lighting conditions as it gets to dark to see your shots pretty quickly.

Right On The Dot

By

from Branson, MO  -  Hunter

I immediately use this item to sight in a new scope for my Henry .22 rifle. After using the boresighter, I shot it twice at the target and it was "Right On The Dot".

Spend little, get the same in value!

By

from The Rocky Maine Coast  -  Competitive Shooter

Most applicable to barrels longer than 4 inches and useful for only an initial scope or sight setting. Doesn't appear that it will stand up well with the test of time with cheap plastic inserts that are used for multiple caliber applications each that seem to be somewhat unstable when inserted with the borescope.
