It's no major issue as a fox will be just as dead with a bullet going 1 inch astray just wandered if you all had any ideas.
I'd buy adjustable mounts but am a bit strut for cash at the minute.
Thanks in advance

take your time with the adjustable mounts and follow the instructions to the letter and dont forget to zero x = 0 and y = 0 on the photon so everything is central then fine tune with the photon controls easy

how did you get on with your adjustable mounts on your photon? I had the same problem, but not for windage! The crosshair was an inch low of target, so I shimmed it up with a set of Hawke shims off fleabay - plenty of adjustment after that with X=+10 and Y=-12, so the Hawke shims worked nicely!! I did end up buying a set of ATP72 Picatinny adjustable mounts, but unlike the APT66 Dovetail mounts, the Picatinny only adjust for elevation... It wasn't a problem though... I only seemed to need the adjustment on the elevation anyway!! Now sitting at X=+6 and Y= -4!
Hawke shims are about £10 from fleabay and definitely a cheaper option than adjustable mounts, so might be worth considering as an option! Just be aware when you fit them - they are marked on the inside of the plastic shim with direction arrows and which one goes to the rear mount (thicker shim) and which one goes to the front mount (thinner shim)! They are said to add around 25 MOA of elevation to your scope adjustment!!
