I don't know what good it will be if the cross hairs are broken. You would be better off with iron sites. I would be looking at a new scope if I was you. Hope this helps.

How to use redfieeld 3x9x42 scope


Depends on the scope and rifle type to which it is attached.
I invested in an inexpensive laser bore such as this one for an AR: SightMark AccuDot Laser Bore Sight - 223 Model SM39001 (for AR-15)
Once the scope is mounted properly, and assuming you have not made any vertical or horizontal adjustments, set the rifle on a stable platform, insert the bore sight, point it at a target 50 (rimfire) to 100 (AR) yards out (works best in low light situation).
Once you have the laser centered on your target, make elevation and windage adjustments as necessary placing the scope cross hairs over the laser. Remove the bore sight and fire 3 rounds, then fine tune elevation and windage.

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.

When I turn the turrets they go in the reverse direction, WHY


To raise the point of impact, turn the elevation screw counterclockwise. To shift left, turn windage screw clockwise. If you raise the horizontal cross hair you will lower the point of impact of the bullet. If you move the vertical cross hair to the right the shot placement will go to the left. Thats just the way it works. Point your right index finger at a spot on the wall, and sight down your finger like looking at sights, then take your left index finger and pretend it is a horizontal cross hair above your shooting finger, then raise your left finger a set amount above the right, then move your hands back to the shooting position not changing the distance in between, using your left finger now as the sight. You will see your shooting finger is now pointing lower than before. This is now the new point of impact, lower not higher. Hope this is clear as mud and helps Fix Ya up.

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

Hi, I have a TASCO TITAN, 3-9x42, How do I re'paralax it to 35yds


I don't know if your parallax is adj, usually something that comes with the scope, set for around 100 yards. Set up your rifle in sand bags, look at a target at 100 yards, without moving the rifle, move you head left and right , up and down, and see if the cross hairs move off target, No? good, now try it again at 25, 50, 75, etc, where ever it is the least movement is your most accurate range. Some scopes will move 4 to 5 inches off. Not good.

I couldn't find the eurohunter model, but I checked out the website. Without a bore sighter, You can still get your scope to hit a paper plate at 100 yards by using a cardboard box. Then it will fine tune in just a few rounds. Only a bolt action though, you have to be able to see down the bore. Take a big box, or a rifle vise, cut some V's into the top edges, lay the rifle in there, pull out the bolt, find a target 100 yards away, put the bore of the rifle on it and don't move the rifle. Then put the crosshairs of the scope on the same target, check to make sure the rifle didn't move, then check the cross hairs again. You will be able to hit your target at 100 yrds, the ar 15 is an exception to the bolt action, you can see down the bore.

What is the distance between the center reticle and the point where the lines thicken on the Leupold VX-III 6.5-20-40mm scope? (in terms of viewing a target at 100 yrds.)


This area is about the size of the kill zone of your typical white tail deer, about 18 inches at 100 yards. Try with a paper plate out at 100 yards and see how it fits inside this part of your cross hairs. Or use a life sized deer target for reference. Then use go up in power to see it work.

When you zoom your scope does the impact point change on the target? is that when you use mil dot?


No, the cross hairs remain fixed. The zoom serves only to magnify the field of view.

Cross hairs keep turning


I don't shoot BB guns, but I looked up your gun/scope combo. It' a $65 Chinese product. At this price level you cannot expect a decent scope or rifle. It just can't be done. The scope will not be worth fixing.

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.
