Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP

the front ring is for adjusting point of impact at a given range,,,its called a "parallax ajustment" it corrects for the scopes inaccuracies over its full range say from 10 yds to 100 yds there a bit of a pain on a hunting rifle as you need to focus them every time and that slows down your shooting, when only a snap shot will get the kill you cant wate to mess about focusing the darm scope so i never use them on my rifles,,unless im target shooing,, or im snipping when i have time to take my shot,,,
(a head shot only!) only a parallax scope is spot on aim from 10yds to infinity

The Tasco is not a 600 yrd scope by any means. If you want to get rid of them, there are plenty of deer hunters who will use it at 100 yards and never go beyond that. The MOA is usually imprinted on the windage dial, it will have a little fraction or a decimal there telling what it is at 100 yards. There are a couple good scopes out there, Nikon and Pentax are decent. Leupold is about the best. It will deliver beyond your eye vision and rifles potential. I have a Bushnell on my M-40, mainly because I can't afford a $1000 scope, but I can shoot door knobs off at 200 yards all day. The scope is a piece of junk, but I have it set up right and it works, Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to readjust a weaver mount?
Make sure the nuts are on the same side of the rifle (both on the right OR left). The clamping mechanism can vary the centering of the scope if they are on opposite sides of the mount.
The other problem may be poorly drilled mounting holes on the receiver or scope mount, check these for alignment with your bore or barrel.

Tips for a great answer:
If you are going to attempt to sight in
your rifle scope for hunting or just shooting, you will need a basic
understanding of what a Minute of Angle is.
Think of a circle as it is divided into 360 degrees.
Each degree is divided into 60 minutes.
Each minute is divided into 60 seconds, but we don't use that for ballistics, seconds of angle are just used in machine shops and in rocket science.
Minute of Angle
1 MOA = 1/60th of a degree
1 MOA = 1.047 inches at 100 yards
Most accurate long range scopes are set in quarter clicks (4 clicks = 1 MOA) or eighth clicks (8 clicks = 1 MOA) but less accurate short range scopes are sometimes set in half MOA clicks (2 clicks = 1 MOA)? which to me is the opposite as it should be.
For a .308 the difference between shooting at 100 yards and at 500 yards is about 11 MOA. That adjustment with a scope using eighth clicks is 88 clicks.
Most accuracy testing is done at 100 yards, because it makes the math easier, and it is close enough to see the bullet holes through a spotting scope.
Folks usually say that 1 MOA is equal to 1 inch at 100 yards, which is almost exactly correct, as 1 MOA is only slightly more than 1 inch at 100 yards. But for what we are doing it is close enough. Now think it on out to 300 yards, 1 MOA is then equal to 3 inches. So if your shots are 1 inch off to the left at 100 yards; out at 300 yards, you will be off to the left 4 inches. Clear as mud? Hope this helps.
