I have a SS 16x42, rear parallax. When I took apart the sunshade for cleaning a fine thread was exposed and (dumb?) I rotated it back and forth a few times. Now I don't know the original position (probably off 2-3 turns) and the thread doesn't seem to have a solid stop.

Does it matter, or I just rezero the scope and merrily go ahead?

Can I expect some POI change, mil dot inaccuracy, or optical defects?

TIA

If it is just the sunshade on the objective end of the scope it wont make any change at all. Shooting with the sunshade just keeps the glare off the lens and the sun out of your eyes.

The zero will be the same whether its on or off. It would be like having the sling stud backed out 1/4 of a turn, it doesnt have any affect directly to the scope to do anything to affect the adjustment, zero, mil-dots of it

gconnoyer, the objective rotates with front threaded piece.

Since every small movement of any of the pieces moves the optical train, I'm worried about it. Now the optical image seems perfect, but I remember the parallax and focus ring was spot on before. I think I'll check it at 100 and 200 m and then lock it.

i think you might have the objective end confused with the other end. the objective end doesnt have any moving parts except for the sunshade, if its even on.

if you move anything opposite the circled end (in this picture) all your doing is adjusting the focus for your eye with the very end rubber piece and if your moving the distance all you are doing is adjusting for paralax and focusing of the lens for that distance.

 

unless you are moving the circled end (objective end) there isnt anything wrong and your zero should still be however you left it before. If your moving parts on the other end of the scope you are adjusting for focus for your eye and yardage.

gconnoyer, ...if you remove the sunshade the objective can rotate with front threaded piece, and it IS the circled end in your nice picture.

This is the scope but it does not come with the sun shade unless you bought one in addition to the scope.

From your description I believe that you have taken the front portion of the scope apart in which case you will probably need to return it and have it repaired and not take it apart in the future. Most scopes are filled with Nitrogen I believe and if you took it apart and let out the Nitrogen that is not a good thing you better call SWFA.

I do have the sunshade, but I was talking about the objective which has an integral sun shade. Hopefully a couple of turns in a fine thread filled with sealant won't affect the nitrogen fill ...we'll see.
