SOURCE: crosshairs on pentax 4.5x14x42 don't move

With modern rifle scopes the crosshairs do not move.They are designed so that the crosshairs are always centered.I have not seen a scope with crosshairs that move for about 40 years.If your scope has 1/4 minute clicks, then the strike of the bullet moves 1/4 inch at 100 yards for every click.1 inch for 4 clicks and so on.If you rifle shoots 6 inches high at 100 yards you should turn it down 24 clicks to strike dead on.Many hunters and shooters adjust their scopes to strike 1 1/2 inches high at 100 yards.Then it will be accurate to about 300 yards without further adjustment.

SOURCE: Who is the manufacturer of the Cabela's Alaskan

i'm not sure but most probably, a rebranded chinese scope. as most are these days.

its not economically viable to repair these scopes if it requires a re-gas and re-seal.

if its under warranty, get it replaced or buy a new one.
to get it fixed would cost more than the scope is worth

How to align pointer? which lens tu use? no zoom?


During the daytime point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. Without moving the scope adjust the small finder scope crosshairs so they point to the same spot.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. This is your lowest magnification. Practice focusing on a distant object using this low power eyepiece.

Crosshair are turning to right


Are the turrets also turning to the right? If not, the crosshair ring has broken loose inside your scope, if so, you need to correct issues with your mounting system.

I have quite an old tasco telescope. we can see the target star/planet with the finder, but when we switch to look thru the magnification, we see only black. the lens cover is off. dod you ahve any...


You have NOT lined up the finder scope with the main tube. Point the scope at the moon or a bright star and get the moon or the star into the main tube's eyepiece.

Without moving the scope adjust the screws on the sides of the finder scope and center the crosshairs on the target. Now you can use the finder to line up the main tube.

Windage adjustment will not adjust to the right - clicks but does not move the shot groups to the right.


if you have forsed the scope turrets you may have broken your scope,,,if the turret turns to the left set it to the center and change the scope mounts or pack out the scope mount with some strips of 35mm camera film 3 strips should do you,
pack out the eye end mount on the left side of the scope

How to use


Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

This is your LOWEST magnification. Then try other higher power eyepieces. While you are out there focused on a distant object. Line up the small finder scope on that object without moving the telescope. Use the small thumb screws on the finder scope to put the "X" crosshairs on the same object as you see in the eyepiece.
