Question about Tasco 3-9x40 World Class Riflescope 30/30 Reticle scope Clam Pack WC3940MD

2 Answers

I have a tasco 3x-9x 40 f scope. there is no other id or model info that i can find on the scope. the scope appears to be mounted correctly and is vertical in the mount. the cross hairs are rotated to the right about 5 degrees. how do i straighten them to verticle? is there an adjustment or do i rotate the whole scope. also, the windage adjust screw takes what seems to me excessive force. what can i do to reduce the force required. thanks, flick

    maybe the wd will work and i'll probably try it. rotating the scope is unacceptable. the crosshairs will no longer be in proper alignment with the adjusters. i was hoping there was a way to get in the scope or tune the cross hairs but the previous owner probably screwd it up and it's most likely ruined. i have a feeling the adjuster is probably cross threaded or something similar. flick

To get the reticule straight up and down, yes, turn the whole scope till your eye sees it as level. The adj screw on the windage could be over too far, making it hard to turn, if that is the case, you will need to shim the mount. If it was on a bolt action rifle, you could mount the rifle in a box, or a vise, something to hold it steady, peek down the bore at a target 100 yards away, then bring the cross hairs to the target. Look back down the bore and make sure it didn't move. This will put you on paper at 100 yards. It might not be easy on a Winchester type rifle. Hope this helps.

Hello. Get a can of a penetrating lubricant called WD-40. Spray a little into the windage adjustment screw and let it sit over night. Repeat as necessary. Regarding the cross hairs, yes do rotate the whole scope. J.

Manual bushnell sportview 3x-9x.32 scope


The Winchester 94 ejects the spent cartridge straight up and out of the top of thr receiver. This nesesitates mounting a scope off to the side to avoid jamming the action with a spent case hitting the scope and failing to clear the action.

Cap cover pentax 3x-9x scopes


You do not define "cap cover" as to whether it is a 'lens cap' of which the Objective Lens comes in varying sizes with the 3x9 scope depending on the model.
However, you should be able to find one in the size you need at most any Firearms supply store. I have even found a lens cap for a Leupold at a Walmart.
Barring that, go to; www.pentaxsportoptics.com, they should be able to help you in your quest.

Good luck. :)

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.
