They are not supposed to. They are contained in an erector tube. You are actually moving this tube when you adjust the scope. The view of the reticle will not change, even when you move the tube to adjust point of impact.

The lines on scope womt move


The are not supposed to. they are permanently mounted in an "erector tube". When you adjust the point of aim, you are actually moving this tube. What you see in the scope will not change even though the point of impact moves as you adjust.

How do I sight the telescope


The "finder-scope" as they are called can be lined up by putting a low-power eyepiece in the scope, and moving the scope (on its mount) to view a distant object such as a streetlight. An EP which gives you about the same magnification as the finder-scope is a good choice. They are mostly about x8 power.


Centre the object in the eyepiece view and then adjust the finder-scope until the object is centred in that view as well.


Repeat this with a higher power EP, then move the scope onto a bright star, and use the highest magnification EP you have to finally do the last tiny adjustment to the finder-scope.

Cross hairs wont move when trying to ajust


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

I had a gunsmith install my Konus #7234 3x9x32 and the instructions were not forwarded. Q. As I look down the scope at the target, the adjustment labeled left (with arrow) is that oriented like my left...


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?

I assembled it without a manual because i cant find one, and i cant seem to work it everything looks good but with the lense i cant quite seem to work it, ...


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object using the eyepiece mentioned above.

Line up the small finder scope with the main tube-- point the scope at the top of a distant telephone pole or church steeple.

Without moving the scope, line up the cross-hairs in the finder scope with the same object. Once this is lined up you can use the small finder scope to locate objects in the sky.

Ihave a nikon scope that I have sent back 3 times It pareflex, can not get set .


Parallax error is something that could be different in 2 people. What might be ok to some, will be a nightmare to others. Most scopes are set to parallax at 100 yards, but if you set up your rifle where it wont move, vice, box, pads, peek through the scope to a target at 50 yards, move your head back and forth, up and down, do the crosshairs move with you? How about 25 yards, 100 yards? where it doesn't move is where it is set, and where you find the most accuracy in your scope. It is not hard to hold steady, once you get the hang of it, instead of moving your head to set the crosshairs, anchor your rifle to your cheek and shoulder and move your rifle to the target. There are volumes of material written about this stuff. . Hope this helps.

CAN NOT ZERO GUN


You may try to bore sight it first. Pull the bolt and setting the gun on a good rest sight thru the barrel at a dot on the wall within ten feet. Then adjust the scope to that dot. As you adjust the scope tap the bore of the scope with a screw driver handle, tap it after each adjustment not hard, but enough to give it a sharp jolt. Once you are close here, move out to the range and shoot at 15 yards. Using a rest, again tap the scope after each adjustment. Then move out to 50 yards and you will want to be shooting high 1.5 to 2 inches here. Shoot slow keep the barrel cool and try for 2 shot groups till you have got the scope dialed in. Then move out to 100 yards for your preference of zero. Remember use the same ammo you will hunt with or at least the same bullet weight. If you can't get her to get on paper you can try to loosen the scope in the rings, one at the time once the gun is a little warm. Loosen the barrel ring first then snug it back down and then the receiver ring. If your group moved now, she was in a bind due to a cold gun at set up / installation.

Crosshairs are cocked to the right.


your scope has spun in the scope rings. Loosen the screws holding the scope to the rifle and turn scope until crosshairs are into position. Then tighten screws. You will need to sight in again. If it keeps moving replace scope rings.
