This happens a lot during bore sighting, - no shock to the scope to jar the cross hairs. So take your screwdriver and use the handle - rap the scope or better just tap it. Not hard enough to bend/dent it but jar it so things can move if need to.
The cross hairs don't actually move when you adjust a scope, instead, they are contained within what is called the erector tube. When you adjust your scope you are actually moving this tube, thus the cross hairs do not move around in your field of view
yes it should be,,,to zero your scope clamp your rifle down so it wont move and fire into a target look at the hole the bullet made and if the cross is not on it move the cross till it is over the hole,,,dont move the gun till you have lined up the cross with the bullet strike,,,,,you should zero it in 3 shots this way?
You can't see the cross hairs or the whole picture is blurry? I know that the rear ring on the scope will bring the cross hairs into focus, glasses or not, and the scope itself should be clear all the way down, I can't see a thing either without glasses and it has really hampered my shooting. It ain't no fun , it's frustrating. Try turning the rear eyepiece, see what happens, hope this helps.
it is repaireable but its going to cost more that a new scope,, your one has shook its self apart,, to fix it it needs to be striped right down all the glass will need to be cleaned and after the repair it will need to be refilled with gas,,,,so its not worth the cost of a repair,,sorry
i dont realy understand what you mean by "the cross hairs wont adjust" is it you have ran out of adjustment on the turrets? if so try packing the scope out with 35mm film under the body of the scope and reclamping it,,,or do you mean it just wont adjust?
the tesco rifle scope is a realy cheep scope its a throw away kind of thing if it brakes,,,,there only £50 or so,,,,if it was a £1500 scope its worth fixing
You can get to the cross hairs of a scope, but not much further without some special tools. Take off the rear lens, just unscrew the whole thing, and you will see inside there a ring with slots in the side? A small screwdriver in one of the slots should spin the threads out. You should be able to remove the cross hair tube, inside of it on the front, you should have another lock ring with the slots, spin the cross hairs straight and lock them down. This is a basic scope, I'm sure they are all different, but basically the same. Try it. You cant hurt it, it's already broken, and you will have to send it back out again if you fail. I don't know what they charged you, but there is a guy on ebay advertising scope repair, $45, all scopes.Hope this helps.
I don't shoot BB guns, but I looked up your gun/scope combo. It' a $65 Chinese product. At this price level you cannot expect a decent scope or rifle. It just can't be done. The scope will not be worth fixing.
