Took my Pentax 4-12X 40mm rifle scope mounted on a Remmington 7mm mag bolt action rifle to hunt antelope in Namibia, SW Africa. First shot on a fine kudo blew up his heart and broke off-side leg bone....

you got it in one there,,,its all down to "head butting the scope"!
your head **** has pushed the eye bell up the scope body and has pinched or locked the power adjuster ring to the scope body
you have only two choices send the scope off for repair,,or buy a new scope,,,done even think about trying to fix it as you cant,,
it will need a strip down and then a re-gas (to stop it foging up)
so if you took it to bits the scope would be distroyed

3-9x40 magnification ring just spins

Without seeing the scope, I can only guess, the zoom ring has lost it's screw, The rear lens will come off easy enough, then peek inside for a loose screw, if you find it, you will see a long twisted slide on the side of the tube just inside, turn it till you can see where the screw went. It should be a set up something like that. when you turn the zoom knob it slides a lens front to rear fast, and it rides on that screw, Check it out.

The magnification adjustment ring on my Gamo Whisper worked fine at first, then was stuck between 3X and 5X. Now it is free again but the scope is not focused on the 3X and 9X settings, but is clear on 5X...

I'm not familiar with the scope, is it an air rifle scope? One stroke type? If not, the backwards recoil of the air rifle is tough on a normal scope, they aren't made for that type of abuse. They work fine with a normal recoil. That is why they started making air rifle scopes. I'm sure that the internals of your scope are damaged somewhat, you can take off the eyepiece no problem, you might find something in there, loose screw, missing screw, you never know, don't get too carried away with the dis-assembly, you'll never get it back together. It sounds like the magnification ring is messing with the focus of the eyepiece. Might just need some oil. Hope this helps.

Weatherby scope 3x9 when i turn the power ring the cross hairs turn and the vertical cross hair ajustment dosn't turn

im sorry to tell you that this scope has fell apart inside if its worth fixing its going to cost more that a new scope would do and if you take it apart to try to fix it yourself you will need to refill it with gas to stop it foging up when it gets cold, best this to do it go onto e-bay and get a new scope

I have a redfield 3x9 rifle scope and looking for tips on sightin

Yes thats about all there is to it, adjust in small steps and tap on the barrel of the scope with a screw driver handle (light taps) after each adjustment before firing the gun.

On scope adjustment my older weaver 3x9 micro trac dosent have clicks just marks on the dial how much change in 1 mark movementscope is about 20 years old

Most of the older type scopes were rated at 4 clicks per inch at 100 meters.But to be sure you will have to test it. I generally do that at a 50 meter range and then it is 4 clicks per half inch.

Overtighten causes hazing,and adjusment problem

As a general rule of thumb, If you have normal Weaver-type aluminum rings, you tighten to 10 to 15 inch-pounds. If you have normal Weaver-type steel scope rings, you tighten to 15 to 20 inch-pounds. If it's something exotic and/or expensive, you're pretty much stuck contacting the manufacturer. Leupold Mark 4's require 65 in-lb, for instance.

Wiha makes two adjustable torque screwdrivers (one for lower torque, and one for up to 60 in-lb that are perfect for most any scope ring applications.
