Cool, if what he is describing doesn't concern you that should help him. I'll mention the forum to him.
I have two of the exact same scope, one on my 10-22T and one on my son's Henry 22 lever. Sighting the Henry took A LOT of adjustment but it did zero out. I'm not sure what he is doing to sight the scope but either he is simply not trying enough adjustment (although he said it does not "seem" to adjust any more) or the scope is hosed.
He said he had to put a washer under the rear of the mount and it "fixed" the problem.

Was everything tightened down?
Was the scope boresighted after it was installed?
At what distance is he/she trying to sight the scope in to begin with? Try sighting it in at 25ft and work you way out,if it can't be adjusted that close it is probably a bad scope.
Aftermarket, rings that came with the scope, new, yes, unknown and unknown.
Yeah I realize that they are a lot of factors that could cause problems but right now his "concern" is the receiver alignment, I was hoping to get him some info on that because it is not letting him look at the areas I think he should address.
Thanks for the feedback!
