Question about Tasco ® Silver Antler® 3-9x40 mm Scope Matte Black
Many cap threads are reverse. try unscrewing the other direction. If this doesnt work my suggestion is to use physics to get it off.
Image a jar that is 1 litre with a lid that is 10 cm across. it takes x amount of force to unscrew that jar.
Now if that same jar has a lid that is 25 cm across there is a power advantage and a speed reduction.
Now to apply this to your thread caps. try adding layers of tape/cloth onto the thread caps to make it easier to unscrew.

That should be covered in your manual.
If not, give Nikon a call.
Or, repost your question on a Bulletin Borad such as at SWFA, where another user may have the identical scope.

Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.

It's a common misconception that you are moving the bullet's impact on the target... the bullet is hitting where the rifle is pointing and you want to get the scope to look at that very same spot.
To move the scope's reticle up or down, turn the elevation adjustment on the TOP of the scope in the direction you want the scope to look, so if your shooting low, turn the scope's adjustment in the DOWN direction. If you want to move the direction the scope is looking left or right, turn the windage adjustment on the RIGHT side of the scope left or right to look where the bullet is impacting. To move the crosshairs to the right, turn it right.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

There should be a set screw or screw that you can loosen to make that adjustment. Once you have it where you like it, just tighten it back up and enjoy you ability to make those quick adjustments when needed.
