NC Star with crooked reticle - spend $10 to send back or junk?

After having it in the safe for a few months, my 1.5x4x32 got mounted this morning to hit the range and the reticle is about 10 degrees crooked and no way to move the scope in the mounts I can tell.

Looks like they will fix for $10 and return. Anybody know if I can fix? I don't mind if it messes up the scope is pretty much a piece of chit IMO.

Really bummed out. Should have bought a Nikon or Luepold like all my other optics. It's on an M&P15

thanks

I have an NC 3x9, the reticle is straight but I can not see the target at 100yds , I use 2.00 cheaters but I can not focus the scope.

Keep it as a paper weight - a reminder to buy good scopes.

Unscrew the lens' and use them for magnifying loops at your desk. While sighting in my .44 this fall I suddenly couldn't see anything through the scope. It rattled real nice and when I unscrewed the lens I had parts fall out.
No more NcStar for me.

Generally, the cost of shipping the thing back is more than it's worth, if your time has any value.

took it to the range and got on zero pretty fast. Then after about 80 rounds it was moving and yep the screws backed out underneath and it was loose on the mount.

Leupold Mark AR for me for Christmas. Choice now is 1x4, 3x9, or 6x18

I retract my last post. Tascos are better.
