My Mueller APV 4.5x14 40mm AO went bananas



Log in to see fewer ads
I have had the scope for a little over two years and it has performed marvelously. But I had it out last week and my Rem. Model Five (Zastava CZ99 .22LR) went bananas on me. I was getting a dispersion of my Aguila .22 SEHV 40 gr. RN over a nearly 2" spread at 50 yds. where I normally get 1/2 in. or smaller tight groups.

I brought it back in to my gun club's indoor range this past Monday. Shooting off a bipod and rear bag the dispersion was proportionately just as bad. A half in. or greater at 25 yds. where I normally would have a single jagged hole maybe 0.30 inches. The shots were randomly high, then low, left, right, and then might put one on the POAI, and then drop 2 a half inch low.

I shot my Aguila HVSE and also some Win M-22. The groups were equally bad. I had one M-22 group that looked pretty good, and then 2 shots went wandering.

I had checked the mounts, stock, etc. last week. No changes have/had been made in months. No reason to. The scope just was not shooting to POA.

I sent the scope back to Mueller Optics today with the proper invoice, letter and a check for S&H and insurance. We will see what happens.

I have another identical scope on my CZ 452 American that is nearly 8 1/2 years old and it is still shooting tiny groups at 50. This one is really the first scope I have ever purchased that has went awry. Some never lived up to their claims, but at least they were consistent in what they were capable of.

If you have the receipt there is a lifetime warranty, if not they may negotiate a discounted replacement price. I bought two used scopes and they replaced one free because I had proof of purchase and the other at a discount with no receipt.
