SOURCE: RIFLE SCOPE STUCK ON 8x POWER
If the scope's minimum power isn't 8x then it's broken. Call the customer service rep of the company and see how you can return it. Depending on the warranty they may fix it or replace it. I'm not familiar with Balfor as I don't shoot BB guns. You can move the ring around a bit, see if something loosens up, but don't force it.

your best bet is to locate your local shooting club and ask someone experienced with specialist scopes. As for now, all I can suggest is to sight the scope in at 3x power. I'm not sure about a boresight on this scope, since is is at the extreme budget end of zoom scopes. If you mean it has a rangefinding (or ballistic) reticle, then you might try here: http://www.perry-systems.com/reticle_analysis.htm for basic usage guide. The reference distances will vary according to several factors, including but not exclusively: bullet weight, muzzle velocity, firing angle, windage adjust, wind direction.

When you click on "customer service" on the simmonsoptics.com website, it takes you to the Bushnell customer service web page.
The number for customer service that is given is:
The customer service rep. told me to "go to the Simmons web page".
Which, of course, takes me back to the Bushnell web page. It's a circular race track.......
In my opinion, Simmons/Bushnell has lousy customer service.
I bought a 2nd hand Simmons 3-9X50 scope (model #800479) that needed the screw on caps for the reticle adjustment screws. A small request, I thought.....one that should be easily remedied by calling Simmons/Bushnell customer support.
No dice. Customer support told me to spend $15 to send them the scope, and then they "will have to look around and find something that will fit."
Oh really??? Doesn't Simmons/Bushnell already KNOW the sizes of the parts they have?
Just send me the damn caps. They will cost Simmon/Bushnell no more than a buck apiece.
Then I asked for a user manual for said scope. No dice. The customer support lady told me to find the manual on the Simmons web page.
The Simmons web page doesn't provide user manuals online.
Their customer support needs a lot of improvement.

SOURCE: rifle scope fogging
You can try to clear this your self. You will need a good sized clear plastic bag, say kitchen trashed can size. You will need to get your hands on some nitrogen or you can also use carbon dioxide. You will need some good electrical contact grease or Vaseline will also work. Take the focus lens off your scope, let it dry out. Now ck for any o-rings and try to find new if you can, put the grease on the screw threads.Put all the scope parts in the bag and pump up the bag with your nitrogen and tie off the bag but leave room so you can screw the lens back on once it has set for a little bit in the gas. This should let gas stay inside the scope so no moisture can get back inside to fog it up. Try that, sounds crazy but it will work.
