Re: nikon monarch 3.3x10.44 model 6539
It sounds like the cross hairs are moving i had this problem and it was the sight not the rifle check that the mounts are secure usually one of them will slip out or the guide if it is secure then it is the scope thats the problem return it if u can if u cant it can be repaired but this can be expensive and you cant do it yourself cus it has to be recalibrated sorry i couldnt be any more help it is usually the shock that moves the cross hairs take it to a shop and they will try it for you and tell you what is wrong also check that the screws holding the rifle together are secure because it happened to me once that one of the screws had broke and was allowing the rifle to move slightly so when i lined the scope up and fired it moved and then it put the sight out try this but a rifle shop should test it for free and tell you what is wrong they will put it in a vice and fire it so then they no the gun is in the same place when fired then they will no wether it is the gun or the sight but i would say it is the sight but before you buy another check all the screws are ok and none missing hope this is some help.....................

I think you will very unhappy if you mount it on the carry handle.
I suggest removing it and getting a Nikon M-223 mount, YOu might also want
to check out the M-223 line of scopes. The 3-12x42 with Rapid Action Turret might
really surprise you. I don't have one freind who hasn't tried mine out and not bought one.
Hard to argue with that. Check out Nikonhunting.com

If you are trying to focus at a relatively close distance, you may be overpowering the scopes ability to focus at that distance. Most rifle scopes are set to parralax free at 100 yards.You can see this effect by putting the scope on its lowest power, focusing at 25-50 yards, and then increasing the power setting. You will see the image go out of focus as the power increases. This simply means that you must shoot at longer distances in order to use the scope to its full potential.
The other problem may be your parallax adjustment, but you may have already tried that solution.If not, make sure that the adjustment dial is set at the distance you are trying to shoot (minor adjustment from the indicated setting may be required to fine tune the image).
have you shot it yet???? dont forget bullet drop!!!! but if it shoots to hight thats easy to put right,,,most of the time its a mount fault, but undo the front of the scope mount and slid 3 bits of 35mm film under the scope then nip the scope down on the film strips,,this will lift the point of aim past what you need,,,,
My recommendation is that you send the scope back to Nikon and have their factory repair it. It is unwise to try and take the scope apart yourself, I won't even do it and I am a gunsmith.
Nikon contact info from their website:

Google SWFA ......they sell about 20 different brands of riflescopes, with pix, desriptions and prices. It's a good source for info, even if you decide to buy one of the same scopes at Walmart. Check out the Bushnell Trophy, Nikon Prostaff, and Tasco scopes, in particular.
Also, there is a website I belong to, originally started just for the Ruger 10/22 owners/fans. You can visit it and join for free at - www.RimfireCentral.com
We have a great bunch of guys and gals there, who can help you with questions on ANY type rimfire rifle. I'm sure you will love this site.
Robert, I have the Simmons 6-21x44 MilDot # 511056 scope on my Savage model 10FCP Law Enforcement issue rifle. I think you should check it out. It has 90 MOA internal adjustment and you could get you something like a 15 MOA or 20 MOA tactical rail and push your adjustments out to 1000 meters!!!
