Has anyone done a parallax adjustment on this model before? It's the one that comes with the Air Hawk, a Ruger badged 4x32. Just mounted the scope, now that I decided to keep the gun. The parallax is set for 100m or more, which makes shooting in my short range very challenging.

Tried using a flat blade screwdriver in the little indentation to rotate the lens on its threads but it didn't budge. Figured I posted the pic and asked before I risk putting a nasty scratch on the lens. It seems to have a separate portion that houses the lens (as seen in the pic) but naturally it's there tight. If the trick is to first remove that then I'll try it, but again, feel safer asking the users here first.

Is the outer ring acting like a lock nut? The outer being the visible part 1/2" of so of the scope which you unscrew by tuning it by hand. Once that's loose the inner ring should turn easily. At least that's how most are. And it's probably set around 33M.22LR usually 50M and centerfire 100M.

Correct, Roussfam pointed that out to me and after heating up the scope with a hairdryer, it turned easily. Adjusted the parallax to where it should be, for a 10m range. But now for some reason there seems to be a bit of blur in the image, whether I point it at 10m or 50. I can't even read a license plate off a vehicle parked across the street due to the blur. Is there a way to sharpen the image with this scope? The manual that came with it is useless.

Issue has been resolved.

There is a second locking ring near the eye piece. After loosening and turning the eye piece as far forward as it goes (and then a bit more) it is now sharp again. Suppose it makes sense, as I had moved the front lens forward quite a bit to give me the desired parallax. Makes sense that the eye piece had to be moved forward as well in order to keep the same distance and thus, the sharpness.

Thanks for the help.
