Hi All, 

I figured this was the best place on the web to find someone who might have a solution for me. 

I was recently re-given a .243 Handi Rifle on a visit to my parents house. I'm eventually going to give it to my (future) kids, but in the mean time I would love to shoot her ( already got .243 dies on the way).

Long story short, as it sat in the gun safe for the last 10+ years the indicator ring on the AO came loose and was hanging on the front ring when we pulled her out. 

It's an older (17+ years) Simmons Pro Hunter 4-12 x 40. 

After I clean off the old glue residue with alcohol or goo-gone what is the best way to realign the indicator ring with the AO?

I threw a video up on Youtube in case my description wasn't good enough. 

Thanks in Advance!

I turn it all the way down so its at its closest mark and then you'll be able to line that up with the smallest distance on the ring.

Thanks,
