Boresight Collimator Calibration Service 

Enables accurate boresight calibration of the rings to the rifle bore.

Calibration of the collimator grid at the factory is generally not very good. We've found that new boresight collimators are usually off by 4-6 MOA, and alignment errors as large as 12 MOA are not uncommon in used collimators. When used with a rifle scope that has a centered reticle, a properly calibrated collimator can be used to accurately boresight align the rings to the rifle bore.

We align the collimator grid to be parallel to the v-groove axis to which the bore arbor attaches. This process aligns the grid to within +/-0.5 MOA of the collimator arbor axis in both the horizontal and vertical directions. Note: reproducibility of the bore arbor alignment to the rifle bore is usually within +/-1.5 MOA. We then place a calibration date sticker on the collimator. We also include instructions on how to use a calibrated collimator to perform common functions, such as:

  • Zeroing optical sights to the bore of the rifle.
  • Changing rifle scopes without losing zero.
  • Diagnosing barrel-receiver alignment problems during rifle scope installation.
  • Checking a free-floated stock for barrel contact  

Procedure: New Bore Sighter. When you purchase the calibration service and a Bushnell Professional Bore Sighter (model 74-3333) together, a new Bore Sighter is pulled from our inventory and removed from its packaging. We calibrate the collimator and then place it back in the factory packaging, with all factory supplied accessories and paperwork. 

Procedure: Customer's Bore Sighter. You ship your boresight collimator to our North Carolina location. We calibrate the collimator and then place it back in your packaging, with all included accessories and paperwork. Note: you only need to send us the Bore Sighter, not the bore spuds or other packaging, instructions, etc.

To perform this calibration service the small screw-on cap on the end of the collimator must be removable to expose the adjustment screws for the grid reticle. This service cannot be performed on a BSA or Tasco boresight collimator because the grid alignment screws are not accessible on these models.
