I would take the scope to a hardware store.I know that Ace has all kinds of machine screws with different diameters,lengths,thread counts,machine screws wood screws,metric,standard,etc. and try to find the right one that seems to fit best.If you have to have it mounted,just leave the gun in the car and bring it out to experiment to make sure you have the right one.Your only other alternitative is to order one from the manufacturer.A hardware store should have one that should fit though and if you find out it isn't the exact one,you can exchange/return.I do basically the same thing for appliances,a couple of screws for a car.Lowes and Home Depot make you buy packages of more screws than 1,so if you find one at a hardware store that works,you may want to go to one of those 2 to buy a package of them in case it happens again but make sure to get the right specs.(length,thread count,diameter).If you want to contact the maker it will probably cost like $3-5 to ship so it's up to you. Good luck and happy hunting!Greg

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.

Crosshairs are cocked to the right.

your scope has spun in the scope rings. Loosen the screws holding the scope to the rifle and turn scope until crosshairs are into position. Then tighten screws. You will need to sight in again. If it keeps moving replace scope rings.

Dwc3-9x40 scope

its real simple at the top and on the side of the middle of the scope you will find 2 knobs. unscrew the knobs and you will find 2 flat head screws one for each knob. one will say up with an arrow the other willsay right with an arrow. go to the gun range. set the rifle up on a bench ,fire, adjust the screws up or down left or right until the bullet and the crosshair matches one click of the screw will equal out to 1/4 of an inch adjustment. if you change ammobrands you need to do this will never be perfect but at 100 yards you should get 3 bullets in a 3 inch circle.

Tasco propoint PDP2 scope

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.
