Burris P.E.P.Ryan mount or scope problem?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a Smith and wesson m&p 15-22 with a leupold vx2 3-9 rimfire scope mounted on a burris p.e.p.r mount. My elevation and windage knobs maxed out and I'm still about 3in off both ways. This happened to me originally with a cheap bushnell scope and I thought maybe the problem was the scope. I got this leupold scope and I have the same problem. I unmounted the mount and backed it up on the rail to test it out and same issue. Is it possible this mount is too high for my 22lr? Still wouldn't explain the windage issue though. Maybe the mount is a lemon? I could use some serious help figuring this out. I have the same mount for my 223 and had zero issues zeroing it. Any ideas??

It's clear the barrel is pointing different than the mount. I'm not familiar with the rifle or mount but you should be able to SEE that much crooked.

If im not mistaken, the rail on that rifle is molded/ cast as part of the upper. So assuming that you are mounted back over the receiver as you should be, the most likely cause is that the mount is either improperly affixed to the rail or is defective. Other alternative being that the rifle is damaged (rail or barrell).

First thing i would check is compatability. Some of the rails on certain 22 rifles look like a weaver, but may be slightly undersized or the slots not deep enough to accommodate the screws. Check to see if one or both of the screws are hitting anything in the slots and not allowing the mount to seat properly.

If everything looks good, buy a cheap set of 1" rings and swap to determine if it's the mount. As JBelk said, with the misalignment you are getting, you should be able to look down from the top and see it. Hold a long straight edge or level on the windage cap if it helps.

So, after purchasing a Leupold mark 2 ims mount and getting it all setup, torqued to spec, and hitting the range. I was finally able to make sensible adjustments and get it zeroed. My Burris mount was the culprit. Thanks for all your help everyone!

For what it's worth, good for future reference. Once I had an elevation issue due to a barrel that had not been tightened enough and was "droopy". Tightened the barrel nut some more and all was well.

Burris makes rings that 'adjust' out of whack mounts. You sure you didn't have them mounted out of adjustment?
