On a good day 1" at 20 yards. Rested and scoped.

Do you find your scope mount(s) move after a while?

I've been looking for a scope arrestor block to place in front of the dovetail to weaver adaptor, but there's not enough room on the dovetail to mount the type I can find.

These springer versions kick like a mule.

Yes it's a challenge to scope one. I used a one piece offset dove tail mount with a  adjustable scope stop in place of the factory stop. I could not make the pic adaptor work. What scope you trying to use?

I'm currently using a cheap Chinese reflex red dot as seen all over eBay. It is weaver mount, so I had to use a weaver to dovetail adaptor.

I did buy a Leapers offset dovetail mount like yourself, and was considering fitting a 2x20 scope I have, but I'm concerned the harsh recoil will toast the scope in short order.  ;D

I've still got the Leapers offset mount & scope, but don't know whether to fit it or not.

To my surprise I put a cheap NCStar 2.5x30 on one of mine and It has lasted for a few years now!
I guess it's all about the luck of the draw. There is not much choice in scopes when it comes to scoping this beast. I found out hard  the way that you really need a short scope around 8.5 inches or so to get enough adjustability for proper eye relief. If scope is to long you will not clear the barrel when cocking and when you slide the scope back to clear the barrel you have to much eye relief. I have found that this scope works for me but it would be nice to have a little more magnification . I guess I could have used a set of elevator scope mounts but that would look weird I think.

Neither the .22 springer nor the suped up .177 vortex supercharger have eaten up the 2 x 20 Crosman pistol scope. Still kickin...

I'll have a go at fitting mine sometime later next week & hope for the best.   ;D

The PAO 2x20 isn't expensive, so if I only get 6 months out of it, the fun of it will be worth it.

A bit off topic, but I hear people saying the HW45 kicks like a mule - but is the Supercharger worse or better in terms of recoil?

I've got a mount similar with 4 bolts, but it still shifts after around 30 shots.

I should perhaps tighten it down more, but I don't like torquing down to hard.

This BKL weaver to dovetail looks really good with all the bolts, but it's expensive. I've got BKL 2 piece mounts on some of my Weihrauch rifles, and they are significantly better than sportsmatch, leapers, and all the other cheap mounts so I might invest in one.

 That BKL will hold for sure, I have used them on magnum springers. Id say try more torque, and another trick people have used, is put a thin coat od polishing grit on the rail groves before mounting, that gives a micro bite to the smooth metals.

I'll go for the BKL, and good shout on the polishing grit.

The BKL-568 is 60 over here (around $90) but only around $40 in the America's.

Crosman gear is also 3 or 4x the price over here, so you guys are real lucky.

You've got it good.  8)

Haha, I hear you.

I don't think you're missing much, as the only UK guns we can offer are Air Arms, though, maybe the odd other one that skips my mind.

Air Arms are decent, but I can't recall anything else made here that is.  ;D

I have the same, inexpensive offset mount as recommended first. It did move on me for a bit and I found myself retightening it. Then it just stopped. Not sure why it would need a break in period but it did and works great on both superchargers.

Sometimes even metal needs to stretch and settle in a bit.

When I had a scope mounted on my Supercharger, I used one of the Airforce Airguns adaptors and my scope never moved.

It's been nearly a year since I posted this thread, and I've not used my mod 25 Supercharger in around 10 months.

I must blow the dust off it & give it another go.

How are you guys getting on with yours? Any problems, breakages, etc'?

My .177 vortex piston broke, probably because I pumped it up well beyond max recommended psi. It was such a workout. I miss it.

The .22 springers are underpowered enough to ricochet off the wood setup I had beennusing regularly, but now I have a trap and a chrony. Maybe it's time to take another look.
