My cross hairs do not move when i adjust my sights. i bought a laser bore sighter and the laser points in the same exact spot no matter how far i turn my adjustments nor do my cross hairs move.


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.

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 got in a tight spot needing a scope last season. I was very short on cash so i bought a 3-9x 50mm cheap Tasco . I sighted it in at 100 yards. I missed the first deer . Two hours later I shot high on...


well one day you may lurn that cheap is cheap! and tasco is rubbish cheap! i would say without dought the cross hair in the scope has shaken apart,,,due to recoil,,,a 30-06 has a big recoil
try holding the rifle stock on your jaw and firing the rifle off?
when or if,, you wake up in hospital with a shaterd jaw and with no teeth left in it you will know then! and cheap tasco scope is an air rifle scope it cant take 2500ft/lbs of recoil???
so it wont take much of a kick to mess it up,,
i put one on a 303 enfield??? i got 3 shots before it fell to bits!
if your going to buy cheap scope's go for nicon gold crown?

Cross hairs turn when adjusting power


Sounds like somebody took your scope apart and forgot something. You can remove the rear of the scope, but you might want to send it back to the factory. Some scopes are filled with nitrogen to stop them from fogging up, But maybe only the front part. Take the eye piece off, you should be able to get to the cross hair unit, it should come out in one piece, find out why it spins, might be missing a washer, I have replaced the cross hairs on scopes before with spider webs, I tried a dolls hair once, I thought it was thin enough, .002 ",, It looked like a rope inside there when I got it back together. Good luck, let us know what happens.

I have a 3-12 by 40 rifle scope made by tasco i dont have thewaranty paper work any more and the cross hairs wont adjust any more what do i do


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

I believe the second cross hair in your scope relates to an 18 inch dimension, or that of a deer. When you adj the wire to the body of a deer, it will be the distance, I'm not sure if you have to do the math, or the scope does it for you. Some scopes, you had to figure the hold over by the distance in the scope. others would be set to shoot at that distance. I would ave to look that one for you to be sure, but that is the idea. Hope this helps.

Crosshairs look like an x instead of a cross got back from ABO repair for stripped tube, where eye bell fits on. they said they changed the tube. I shot about 50 rds with it when problem developed tasco...


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.
