I have a Site Lite Mag Laser SRL-100 and am very happy with it. I comes with a target that has a bubble level and a special lense that turns the laser dot into a horizontal line. This makes adjusting the scope so that the cross hairs are properly alligned relatively easy.

I just got a new Tech Force Contender 89 and used the Site Lite to set it up. I made the initial adjustment in my basement. When I got to the range, it was overcast, and I was able to see the dot at 25 yards. The dot was about 2' in diamater but it was easy enough to set the cross hairs on the center. As you would expect, the actual POI for the "springer" was about 2 inches high and right. Not bad.

There is one problem for air gunners with this model. It is good for all calibers from .22 to .50 cal and 20Ga. and 12Ga. shotgun. Will not work with .177 and .20. There might be others out there that will work.

There are some pictures out there of a fellow who forgot to remove a Site Lite from a high powered rifle before firing it. The barrel is folded back like a bananna peal, and they took the man away on a stretcher looking pretty beat up around his face. Not nice. If you take this thing to the range, you need to really pay attention to what you are doing.

Hope this helps.

I have a Bushnell one, and it is very good at getting you on paper without firing a shot. The Bushnell doesn't cater for .177cal, but arbors for .22cal to .50cal, and 20 and 12 bore shotguns.

To use it, you fit the arbor of your choice, push it gently in the bore (not a silencer!), give it a gentle twist to get it tight (ish). Then with the rifle rested, and a target set up ut your desired range (I use a piece of A4 paper), now adjust the windage and elevation until the dot is in the centre of the crosshairs.

Remove the boresighter, and finalise your zero, very simple.

Hope that helps,

Don

Maybe their market survey did not include air gun people. On the other hand, the .17 rimfire seems to be gaining in popularity, so maybe they will release a model that goes down to .17.
