SOURCE: I have a Pentax lightseeker

If it has a cracked lens it obviously took a very hard shot at some time or other.I would send it back to Pentax.They are not cheap, so I would attempt to get it repaired by the manufacturer.
Good Luck

Your scope has 5 adjustments:
1. Eye piece focus - used to focus on the reticle.
2. windage adjustment - should be on the R side of the scope, adjusts lateral impact point.
3. Vertical adjustment - the top turret. Adjusts vertical point of impact.
4. Power ring - adjusts the magnification of the scope.
5. AO ring - Parralax adjustment - used to focus the scope at specific distances. Most markings are not exact, you should set it at the range you are shooting and fine tune focus when you look through the scope.

How do i use a tasco 28A


1. Insert the Bore Stud into the Stanchion while aligning the arrows as shows. Insert the assembled scope guide into the muzzle of your rifle with the grid pattern upright. 2. Select the Aperture Cap that fits your objective rim. Place it over the objective end of your rifle scope and press until it fits flatly against the rim. 3. Using the Adjustable Scale measure the top of your rifle scope tube to the center of the rifle bore as follows: Open the rifle breach. Rest the upper arm of the scale on the scope tube before or behind the windage and elevation turrets. The scale markings should be facing towards you reading vertically and ascending from bottom to top. Slide the lower end of the scale up or down until it is touching the center point of the bore. On center fire rifles the center point will be the firing pin. On rimfire models the center will be the shell extractor. Read the number that corresponds to the indicator marked "CF". Make a note of the reading. 4. Aim the rifle toward a light, flatly lit area such as a wall or open sky. Caution: Do Not Look At The Sun As Permanent Eye Injury Could Result. 5. While keeping the riflescope at the right distance to see the full field of view, sight through it on the grid pattern. Move the stanchion right or left until the bold centerline is parallel to the vertical reticule wire. Turn the windage dial right or left until the vertical reticule is aligned with the grid centerline. 6. Use the reading from the scale to align the horizontal reticule wire. Find the numbered horizontal grid line that corresponds to the number on the scale. Turn the elevation dial right or left until the horizontal reticule wire aligns with this corresponding grid line. 7. To make your final zeroing adjustments remove the scope guide from the bore of your rifle. WARNING: FIREING YOUR RIFLE WITHOUT REMOVING THE SCOPE GUIDE MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR RIFLE AND OR CAUSE YOU INJURY At a range or other safe area test fire a group of three rounds of the same type ammunition at a target at least 50 yards away. Refine your scope alignment by adjusting the windage and elevation dials. Move to your desired distance from the target and test fire another group and make your final windage and elevation adjustments. 8. Restore the stud tension by pressing the end of the spring.

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

To adjust the vertical on a Bushnell Banner scope, which way do I turn the screw and how much. I am 6 inches high


The top turret should be the one you need. You should see an U or D with an arrow pointing in one direction or another. Your scope should move the point of impact 1/4 inch at 100 yards for each click. Moving the adjustment 24 clicks in the down direction should fix you up if you are shooting at 100 yards. The movement will be linear for other distances.

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.
