Got moisture in scope and it is fogged up

Got moisture in cabelas pine ridge scope and it is fogged up. I brought it in the house with controlled temperature thinking that the moisture would escape but the scope is still fogged. I noticed the back part of the scope allows you to unscrew the eyepiece but you need a special to do this. what should I do as I do not have that tool.

Take it into a camera shop, they will have the tool,, but if you undo the scope it will need to be regased again the "o"ring seals have worn out or broken and thats how water got into it,, it also let the nitrogen out of it,,,if its a cheepy scope buy a new one,,,
what i mean by a cheepy is less than £1000,,,,

I dont understand what the extra dial on my new 6-18x44 scope is for or how to use it.Or what range evry line and dot in the reticule should be ranged in at.

The third turret is for parallax and approximate range
And the lines on the reticule are round and velocity specific plus magnification comes into the distances between substension
On my scope 100 yard zero the next substension down is 176 yards at 10 magnification
The best way to use the reticule for ranging is to get a ballistics program and enter rifle round and scope stats and get a chart for that round and reticule
And the drop chart will change for different velocities and ballistic coefficients of rounds and temperatures a summer chart will be different to a winter chart due to denser air in the cold

Which knob you adjust for drop? What is the left knob for?

If you have 2 knobs, there should be no left knob. If you have a knob on the left, you have it mounted 90 degrees out of alignment. Loosen the rings and turn it 90 degrees clockwise. Once you do that, the knob on the top is the one you will use for elevation.

If you have 3 knobs, the left one is for parallax adjustment, focuses the scope for specific ranges. the top knob is the elevation adjustment in this case also.

I just purchased a savage .17 HMR with a cabelas pine ridge 3x9x40 tactical scope and I'm having problems siteing it in. It is shooting aout 4 inches low regadless of adjustments I try and make.

A quick and easy way to bore sight your rifle, if it is bolt action only, or an AR, mount the rifle in a cardboard box with cutouts so it will sit without tipping, remove the bolt and sight down the bore at a target 100 yards away, a mail box, or the corner of a building, make sure the rifle doesn't move, then peek through the scope, it should be seeing the same target your bore is seeing, if not, adjust your scope to it, if it won't travel that far, shim the front with pieces of 35 mm film. then check it again, if you can get it to stay there, it will put your bullet on paper at 100 yards.

I have to use reading glasses to use a simmons blazer rifle scope.....othewise the image is blurry.

You can't see the cross hairs or the whole picture is blurry? I know that the rear ring on the scope will bring the cross hairs into focus, glasses or not, and the scope itself should be clear all the way down, I can't see a thing either without glasses and it has really hampered my shooting. It ain't no fun , it's frustrating. Try turning the rear eyepiece, see what happens, hope this helps.

I have a Pine Ridge scope with moisture inside. Is there any way I can take it apart to clean it, or will I have to buy another one.

it could be striped to dry it out but you realy need to strip it right out so you can also clean all the class in it,,,problem is if you tuch the glass you take off the colour coatings on them, so i would say drop it in at a scope doctors or buy a new one witch may be a lot cheaper that getting yours fixed

Scope fogged up on the inside and i cant see out of it. while hunting in the winter the scope fogged up. now that it is getting warm out it cleared up.

The gas inside the scope has leaked out. Moisture condenses in the cold weather and fogs up your optics when this happens. Send the scope to the manufacturer and they will warranty it. All scope manufacturers have real good competitive warranties. TP
