I have one that’s close to that. In bright sun, I couldn’t see it much past 30 feet. They’re good for sighting in while indoors with low light. After that, not much use.


#3

This is what I’ve always heard from people which is why I haven’t bothered to get one. I would love to find one I could use outdoors so I can zero in @ 100yds.


#4

Green lasers seem to be a far better choice for outdoors. Red is hard to see.


#5

You also need to be really careful with those. Don’t let the bolt slam shut or you can damage or kill it. I have a magnetic one that I like much better. It sticks to the end of the barrel so it’s usable on most calibers. Only time I use the in the breach style is when the brake is non magnetic.

I’ve been using the Laserlyte boresighter for years. Goes in the muzzle and has multiple bushings for different calibers. It gets me on paper every time. Like any red laser, it’s hard to see in broad daylight, so I usually use it in my garage, or across the back yard at dusk.
Works for rifles, and most pistols with a longer barrel.


#7

With a bolt gun I just pull the bolt and sight thru the barrel at 25 yards and am on paper at 100.Simi autos I sand bag at 25 and sight down the side of the gun it gets me close and I can adjust from there.


#8

It is a good item for sale. We used to sell a lot of these laserstyle boresighters while I was working in a gun store.


#9

There is no green sight boresighter. Green dot sight needs huge power and big battery can hold green light. Boresighter is small and there is no such a small battery that can match the boresighter

Sorry if my spelling is off… no auto correct on mobil and I have sausage fingers. In my oppinion bore sighters are better used AFTER sight in. Let me explain.

I have had great sucess bore sighting by setting up an official 100 meter small bore target at 50 meters. Remove the bolt or seperate the upper and remove the bolt assembly. Look through the bore and get on target. The just adjust the acope till you are on target. Fire 1 shot. Measure and adjust. Fire 1 shot at 100. Measure and adjust. Should be dead center.

Here is where the bore sight tool comes in
Setup a target in your house or yard after sight in. Aim dead center of the target. The red dot will usually be off center. Thats ok. Mark where the dot is with a pen for the rifle you are using and file the target. Now when you remove the scope or if you are a hunter and need to check zero, you need only to setup the target and make sure the reticle is dead center and the dot is where you marked the target. You can do this best by zeroing for 50 100 200 and 300 and marking the same target. That way you can adjust ypur scope before going to the range or verify what range the scope is set to.

Its a bit odd to explain…especially after getting 3 hrs of sleep then spending all day at a wedding with an open bar, but hope it makes sense! :wink:

Boresighters will save you 20 rounds or so. Or maybe less if you eyeball-bore sight well.

But you still need to shoot ammo to sight in properly.

"Boresighter, do you think it really works when shooting?

Purty sure it should be removed before shooting.
Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
Don’t mind me, please continue.


#13

I use an external type for shooting (dry fire) both in rifle (unsupported) and pistol to become more steady and eliminate flinching especially on a DA/SA for that first trigger pull.


#15

I do have bore laser sight, however I don’t always use it. Usually I can sight my rifle in with approximately 3 shots using a good ammo and a stable rifle bench rest.

  1. shoot @ 100 yard target aiming @ bullseye. Dial the scope to that shot hit.

  2. shoot @ the bullseye again. Dial in further if need be on that hit.

  3. shoot @ the bullseye again. Should be on the money.


#16

Any gun where you can see down the barrel is easy to sight in.
Just pick a spot to view through the barrel and then adjust the sight to the same spot.
Bolt action rifles, Most black rifles, even lever actions with the bolt removed can be sighted like that.
