Testimonial: "Thanks. Of course you are right. But that's what it was having been run over by a truck from end to end and I have got it to this point - beautiful but doesn't eject or fire occasionally and scope zero doesn't hold long although its got an old scope while mount is out 5 mm by barrel end and I wanted to work through again from basics."

I bought one SIMMONS 3*9 MAG 22 riffle scope from USA last month in $54 and fixed it on my .22 riffle with proper instruction. When I shooted 2-3 bullets, its + sign is moved from actual target.
I made the target and + again in sync and after shooting 3-4 bullets, its + changed the position. After consulting with some mechanic, he told me the SIMMONS telescope is manufactured in China and its acuracy is not upto the mark. He was advocating me to buy bushnell scope for my riffle.
Now I am confused and not able to identify how to fix this + movement problem in my scope.
By your serial number this is a 1968. Without knowing it's condition it's impossible to say. Does it have the engraved Deer in steel receiver, genuine walnut stock and forearm with diamond pattern cut checkering? So many things to consider. I would just take it to your local dealer and ask for a written appraisal. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
This typically means that you are have exceeded the scopes ability to focus at the distance that you are shooting. This scope is optimized for 50 yards and will function well at all magnification settings. Closer than this optimal distance the higher magnifications may present problems with blurring. Many scopes have a "parallax" adjustment that changes the optical focus to correct this problem. Several of my 22 mag scopes have this adjustment on the objective bell. You simply set the indicator line on the appropriate yardage indicator (making minor adjustments to fine tune focus). Hope this helps
