I bet you havent undone the screw clamp first? it has a locking screw to keep it set up on target plus the ajuster screws ,,,undo the lock screw then adjust it, but its a beast to set up,, when it is set up do up the lock screws and it throws it off again,,,

I'm sure this will sound stupid, I just bought a rifle with a Tasco red dot scope on it and have no idea how to activate the scope. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks

No, that doesn't sound stupid. It's always a good idea to get all the information before using firearms and their accessories, and I'm happy to help:

The large knob on top of the scope is the rheostat, which is used to turn on the red dot, and adjust the brightness. It can be adjusted from "1" (dimmest) to "11" (brightest). You'll have to be looking straight down the scope to see the red dot, since it is only visible when you're aiming. If you turn on the scope to the brightest setting, and you look through like you are aiming, and the red dot is still not there (or very dim) then you probably need to replace the battery. It uses a 3 Volt coin-style lithium battery, type 2032. Unscrew the battery compartment on top of the rheostat and put the new battery "+" side up. Then replace the battery cover, and you should be good to go. Turn off the scope when you're done to save the batteries.

Since you bought the rifle with the scope already installed, it's probably already sighted in, or pretty close to being sighted in. Adjusting the windage and elevation on the red dot scope works just like other rifle scopes. The knob on top moves the point of impact up/down, and the knob on the side moves left/right. For this model, each click of adjustment moves the point fo impact by 1/2" at 100 yds, 1/4" at 50 yds, or 1/8" at 25 yds.

Be safe, and have fun!

I own a Tasco PB-2, this scope is designated as having an illuminated red dot, and a little documentation packet that came with it states it is illuminated. Here's the problem, the damn thing is not...

It has been awhile since if seen one but I think there is a large adjustment knob on top. This has a screw slot that a dime or a penny will fit. Hold the knurled ring and remove the top, this is the battery compartment. If this is a new scope there will be a thin piece of plastic to keep the battery from going dead during shelf time. The adjustment ring is the brightness control.
