I have a Ziess Conquest that was mounted on a Weatherby Accumark. Zero issues holding zero.

I removed it and put it on a Marlin xs7 in 308 using a one piece DNZ Medium height mount. The scope is a 44mm objective. It could probably fit in a low mount but at the time I couldnt find one.

Problem is Ive run out of adjustment both Horizontally and veritcally. Im real close to zero but would love to fine tuen it a couple clicks up and a couple clicks right but there is no adjustment left. Ive remounted scop and rings several times and continue to have the same problem.

What is the problem experts??? Thanks!!!

just spit balling here but...

Not familiar with the xs7 or DNZ mounts and niether have a reputation of having quality problems that i know of.
Being that far off you might be able to see what's off by eyeballing it.

Try starting the mount screws in the holes of the action w/o the base. Put a straight edge against the screws and see if the straight edge lines up with the barrel. If that looks good mount the DNZ mount and put the straight edge against the inside of the rings.

if possible try spinning the mount around (again not familiar with your set up so this might not be possible) and see if the problem shifts to the opposite side or straightens out. Should be able to tell by just boresighting.

GOOD LUCK!!! this stuff gets aggrevating.

I would purchase a lower mount. Or you can shim the scope, but I wouldn't shim my personal scope but have done it for people that didn't want to spend the money to fix it right.

So you think a lower mount will do it. i ordered one today. I called Marlin and they said I could send it in but they would be 2 months getting it back.

I would buy different mounts. Sounds like the holes in the receiver are not aligned.

Yes, yes, hill yes- Burris signature rings with the nylon inserts are the way to go. You will probably need a set of the eccentric inserts to keep the scope optically centered or close if the mounting holes are drilled 'off' very much. The Burris signature system is far and away the best inexpensive option for mounting a scope-especially a nice one. PH

Great reply, another option with the cross slot bases the rifle came with are Millet Angle Loc. They are windage adjustable on front and rear.

My first pick would be Burris Signatures.

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I did order some Burriss signature rings and some inserts but they havent arrived yet. Mean time I shimmed the rear of the one piece DNZ mount with some tin foil folded over about 10 times and pressed flat and then put a small square of black electrical tape on the bottom of the left side of both front and rear rings. That has given me plenty of adjustment to get dialed in.

I just cant imagine the receiver being that far off. After season I may send it in to Marlin. They said to expect a two month turn around which I cant handle right now with the season closing in quickly. Hopefully this solution will not vary with shooting and recoil. I ll probably return the Burriss Rings.
