I don't have any specific expertise regarding rifle scopes, but I'd use the simple optics knowledge I possess and tell you that the crosshairs had gotten loose; when you shoot, it moves out of the focal point, that's why it jumps and blurs. If you could just manage to take it apart, you can surely fix it up yourself.

I have a Redfield 3x 9x riflescope with a bent horizontal cross-hair. It is an old scope I've had for years. I was wondering if it is covered by warranty? If so,where do I send it for repair?


Redfield was purchased by Leupold in 2008, and is only able to repair and service Redfield scopes made in 2010 or later. If it was made before 2010, then it isn't covered by warranty, but Leupold does suggest contacting Iron Sight, Inc, if you want to ask about repairs and associated costs. Here's what the Redfield/Leupold website says:

When Leupold & Stevens, Inc.® purchased Redfield in April 2008, it did not acquire the capability to repair Redfield products manufactured prior to this purchase. The repair tooling and parts were purchased years ago by other repair services. Leupold & Stevens, Inc. will service its manufactured Redfield product (manufactured from 2010 forward) in accordance with its published warranty.
At this time, should a non-Leupold & Stevens, Inc. Redfield product require service, we suggest contacting Iron Sight, Inc. (918) 445-2001. This contact is provided for information purposes only, as Iron Sight Inc. is not affiliated with Leupold & Stevens Inc. They should be contacted directly for all information regarding repair, service and associated charges.

Scope is fogging up and appears to not be clear. Tasco 3x16


Fog in the scope means moister inside. You can try and dry it out, take the rear lens off and using a hair drier heat the tube and the lens separate. Do not blow air inside it may damage the cross hairs. You can try and pressurize the tube so it will not happen again. You will need a large clear zip lock baggy the biggest you can find. Once your scope has been heated with the hair drier. Put the scope in the bag. and try to draw out all the air inside. You can use a Vacuum cleaner. if you get enough air out you can reinstall the adjustment lens on and the tube should stay in a vacuum for a season or two. You can also put vasiline on the threads to help seal the vacuum. You can also try to use gas, you can use gas from a paint ball gun cylinder to pressurize the scope. Put the scope in the bag pressurize the bag and reassemble the scope with the gas inside.

Why does my 30 yr old redfield, widefield ,range finder accu-trac scope that has operated great for all these yrs, now I cain,t get it hit in the same zone a target. The rifle is clean and operates great...


well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

Cross hairs turn when adjusting power


Sounds like somebody took your scope apart and forgot something. You can remove the rear of the scope, but you might want to send it back to the factory. Some scopes are filled with nitrogen to stop them from fogging up, But maybe only the front part. Take the eye piece off, you should be able to get to the cross hair unit, it should come out in one piece, find out why it spins, might be missing a washer, I have replaced the cross hairs on scopes before with spider webs, I tried a dolls hair once, I thought it was thin enough, .002 ",, It looked like a rope inside there when I got it back together. Good luck, let us know what happens.

I have a redfield 3x9 rifle scope and looking for tips on sightin


Yes thats about all there is to it, adjust in small steps and tap on the barrel of the scope with a screw driver handle (light taps) after each adjustment before firing the gun.

Cross hairs are tilted to right while scope is straight


Without seeing the rifle, my guess would be that either the rings were not tight enough or the lens came loose from the shot. It is rare depending on the quality of the scope. If the lens itself moved, it will not be waterproof or fog proof because the seal on the lens is not tight. If its under warranty then it should be replaced, if not then be care full not to get it too wet. If you had a suction cup, you could try to reposition it straight again.

Cross hairs keep turning


I don't shoot BB guns, but I looked up your gun/scope combo. It' a $65 Chinese product. At this price level you cannot expect a decent scope or rifle. It just can't be done. The scope will not be worth fixing.
