    I have Recently bought a Weaver 3-9 scope and have run into a problem,as soon as i change the power of the scope to something above x4 the crosshairs get blurry and impossible to aim I have a nearly identical scope made by a different company and have never had a problem i have tried adjusting it yet nothing seems to help how do i fix this problem or should i send it back and get it replaced

    Sounds like a major problem, I would say send it back.

        Have you focused the ocular lens on the reticle? If not, release the rear lens lock ring and zoom up to 9x and while looking through the scope. Turn the ocular (rear) lens to screw it in or out until you can see the crosshair in its best focus against a white background. Re-tighten the lock ring. Once you do this, it should also be crisp at lower powers of magnification. If this is not the case, take it back. The crosshair on each scope has to be focused for your specific vision.

            Most likely the ocular lens is out of focus for you. Follow the directions which came with the scope to focus it to your vision.

                As I waited for my "post" to "post", it dawned on me.
                If the reticle is clear a 3x and 4x and blurry at other powers, then you've got problems that you can't adjust out at home.
                Don't wait! Send 'er back, NOW!

                    Mr. Hillman,
                    You do well to send it back, and I'm confident Weaver will honor its guarantee. I'd ask you to keep us advised if you are or aren't satisfied with their customer service.

                    Beekeeper,
                    It's good to see your name again! It seems a while since I've seen your comments on this forum and you've been missed. I hope Life has been good to you.
