I've done a lot of searches but no luck here.

I'd like to know which screws do what on the FS2000 standard 1.6x scope. I'm still looking for some sort of document on this. All help appreciated.

The 12 o'clock position screw handles the elevation change and the 3 o'clock screw handles the windage change. By how much? I have no idea. I had to approximate mine when I zeroed mine in. As in turn the screw 1/2-turn and the point of impact moved so many inches at 25-yds.

Start at about 10-yds. Otherwise the scope may be off so much that at 25-yds the point of impact could be off the paper.

Dial it dead on at 10-yds, that way you don't have to worry about windage. Then you can adjust elevation for whichever range you want to zero the gun for.

Ever think of using a bore sight laser? Makes initial zero fast & easy, unfortunately however it needs to be done in early morning or late evening to see the dot even at 25 yds.

I have an indoor range close to me that is 100 yards. I sighted it in at 25 to get it started then moved it out to 50 which was pretty much perfect for my purposes w/ this carbine. Learned the hard way to use the "adverse" setting w/ bulk American Eagle .223 . I do wonder if there is any downside to using the "adverse" setting often.

Now to sight in the PS90!

Thanks for all the help and advice y'all!
