    Crooked Tasco?
    Hi folks. I just bought a Tasco 42mm Red Dot from Midway. When I look through the objective end, the coated lens appears to be canted 10-15 degrees sideways. Is this normal? I don't have another handy to compare it to, but I'm hoping it is canted to make the lens perpendicular to the led which in this sight is situated on the side of the tube. Also, the dot gets blurry if it's on the left side of the glass.

    Thx

    Craig

    The coated lens being canted is perfectly normal.
