Send it back, get it fixed, then get rid of it. Those cheap Simmons scopes are crap to begin with.
That Glenfield rifle is cool though.

Re: POI dramatically changes with scope magnification changes

I'm in agreement with many of the previous comments. The only other thing I would add is to make sure that you are not experiencing parallax effects which can be extreme at close ranges with some scopes and falsely give the impression that your scope is faulty.

Re: POI dramatically changes with scope magnification changes

Already started the return process... hopefully the next one is better. Don't want to dump too much money in high end optics on it since I mainly want to use it to stay proficient when out of hunting season...

I have the same scope on my 10-22 and finally left at one power and use it for squirrels.

Re: POI dramatically changes with scope magnification changes

Where are you located ? I have a cheap 4-16 milldot chinese scope that I will send you for $20+shipping


Barska 4-16x50mm Illuminated Mil-Dot Sniper Rifle Scope FREE S&H AC11670. Barska Rifle Scopes.

The only hassle is that you will have to get 30mm rings. I know you can get them though, since that was what I had to put on my CZ512.
