I have a Scheels Paragon Hunter scope and it has a screw on the power ring's hump. I have not used the scope and I bought it used from my brother in law who did not know what it was for and has removed it once or twice. Did he purge the nitrogen or is it a screw for locking the power ring at one setting? I have seen other scopes with this also and have always wondered.

Welcome to Optics Talk.

I don't believe that screw is related to the nitrogen. I think the nitrogen ports are typically located half way up and on the bottom of the scope tube of most scopes, though I haven't seen yours admittedly.

OK. Kinda what I thought but needed to ask. I had thought about finding or making a screw that was longer to use as a cat tail. I have some Breakaway Coasters coming from Britain but the screw in are nicer I think.

Just an observation, but personally, I'd be wary of buying used gear from a guy who makes a habit of removing screws for which he has no idea of their function. If he will do that, no telling what else he may have monkeyed with.

From my way of thinking, the manufacturer put fasteners on the product for a reason, and if that reason isn't mentioned in the owner's manual with specific instructions on when and why the owner should remove the screw(s), then you probably should leave them be. But, that's me.

Point taken Ted but I purchased it for 1/4 of price in the store and it has a lifetime over the counter no questions asked warranty. I got the deal either way on this one. I had plans for it to go on my 308 but I might have it end up on my 22 long range gun.

Casting in ND. Oh ya, lots of it too but I stick to throwing my lead down range at ground squirrels, cows and starlings. I ordered from Britain because it was the best price shipped and I had money in paypal.

I knew a guy who unscrewed the ocular plumb off of a Brand New Leupold scope that he had just bought.  I was speechless.  He simply screwed it back on.  ( I wonder what he's doing now?)
