Can you not add a shim under the scope, just before it reaches the compensator?

Like, between your printed part and the underside of the scope...
Part of the problem is that the barrel of the compensator doesn't form a straight line with the body of the scope. Even removed from the chassis, there's a noticable "kink" in it. It's subtle but it's one of those things your eye immediately goes to because no real gun – at least, not one that isn't damaged – has a bent barrel like that.

I should have paid more attention during assembly, but since I was gluing it to a painted scope, I was more worried about not getting epoxy all over the paint job.

I was going to let it go, but I showed it to my girlfriend last night (without saying anything about what was wrong) and she immediately caught that the barrel was crooked. So I soaked it in acetone overnight and was able to pull most of it apart this morning. I did some damge to the front part of the scope in the process and I've DMed Field Marshal about buying a replacement for that part. I don't fancy buying am entire m38 kit over again just to replace one part.

So are you saying the cut on the Cutts isn't straight?

Or the rear of the scope isn't?

The Cutts didn't sit in the scope straight. Basically, there's a metal coupler that joins the Cutts to the front of the scope, where the lens would go, but the coupler has a bit of play to it on the scope side of things. (It's a dual male threaded coupler made for the Cutts compensators, so it fits the Cutts tightly but the scope is a little too large for it) I wasn't paying enough attention to alignment and the glue set with the entire Cutts assembly slightly crooked. I double checked the cut-down Cutts with a straight edge and it's fine. It's just the joint with the scope that was the problem.

Hope that make sense.
