Default New sight problem?

Ok, I just got an amazing deal on a Trophy Ridge Rhino, I believe it was last years, although i'm not sure. It was only 50 bux brand new on clearance at gandermountain where they were having a huge hunting clearance sale. Now, this is a totally vertical pin sight, with 4 top verticle pins, and one bottom. When i level the scope, the pins don't appear to be perfectly straight. It seems like all the top ones are at a slight angle.

For example, if i line all the sights up with the end of a door, because the end of the door is a straight, vertically and horizontally level surface. Well when i do this, the level attached to the sight doesn't read as level.

It appears as the bottom is completely perfect, but the top ones seem to be slightly tilted. not bent, but all just tilted.

I will get pictures later. How do i fix this? It isn't severe at all, Just want it to be perfect.

Thanks.

sometimes the level isn't correct, and when it isn't on multiple pin sights that's what happens when you fix it.

Bring it to a dealer and have them set it for 2nd and 3rd axis. Since you bought it at Gander Mountain, they should be willing to do this for you.

Take the level off. It's just one more thing to worry about. If you pay attention to your bow and sights you will not need it.

typically this is done with levels and a bow vise.
