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.

Transmission dipstick tube won't go back in on this 91 Silverado. Just had trans rebuilt and everything in place except the dipstick tube.... won't go in at all.... any suggestions?


Remove the cross member, remove the torque converter bolts and back the bell housing bolts out about an inch, so the transmission will drop some. It's still difficult to get in, but it will go.

When I have my 8mm or 4 mm all I see is black. any suggestions? with the naked eye I can see stars and with the aiming scope I see them but through main eyepiece I see nothing.


The finder scope must be aligned with the main tube. Get a bright star into the MAIN tube eyepiece. Then without moving the scope adjust the crosshairs in the small finder scope so they CROSS at the same star.

Cross hair broken on my B S A mil dot 4-16 x 40 scope will any gun shop be able to repair


Yes, more than likely.
The scope just needs to be disassembled and the crosshair flange repaired or replaced.
A dealer should be able to order the part or at least fit one similar enough to work.
The trick is not to allow any moisture into the scope's internal cavity during the repair.

I have a Redfield 'LO-PRO' rifle scope, 3X9 variable, on my 300 Win Mag. It is about 20 to 25 years old and the cross hairs must be loose. They are not straight up and down anymore. Will this affect the...


It doesn't sound like anything's broken, it sounds like the scope has shifted in the rings, as you said "they are not straight up and down anymore", which won't effect your accuracy at short ranges, but if there's long ranges (more than 100 yards) you're going to be off some.
You can loosen the ring screws until the scope will turn, either 2 or 4 screws that hold the two halves of the ring together. There are numerous tools to help you align the crosshairs, but when I do this job I just square-up the reticle (crosshairs) by looking at the center of the reticles and let your eye follow the bottom crosshair down and make sure it is centered on the back of the bolt or receiver. If you need help doing this job, take it to your local gunsmith, he'll be able to square these up for you and boresight it.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?

For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.

For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.

The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
