Ruger BHE with 4x32 Scope

Does anyone have one of these?

I don't know who makes it but it's obviously contracted by Ruger by from China for there low end rifles, BHE and likely some other, maybe Air Hawk, etc. Purchased on the BHE .177 about 4-5 years ago at Wally World.

My question is, there appears to be an adjustable eye piece with a lock ring but there seems to be little adjustment there. I ran it in quite a few full turns, to all the way back, until it felt like it was near coming off the threads. At some point in the middle is becomes somewhat clear but it reacts very very slow, to the point I can't really tell it's changing anything sometimes. It also seems weird because on my other scope there is just a small ring that turns, on the Ruger I'm turning the entire lens with the logo ending up anywhere. I don't really know jack about scopes yet and the only other scope I have is a decent 3-9x40 and the eyepiece on it goes from blurry, to focused, to blurry again in about one full turn.

So I'm wondering if the Ruger scope is even meant to be adjusted that way. It actually has held up well and kept zero on a pretty harsh springer through many hundreds of shots but it just doesn't react that much to adjustment.

Can it really not have a focus? Is it that cheap? Not that I would be surprised.

The ocular (eyepiece) adjustment is only to focus the crosshairs. To use it, point the scope at a plain background like the sky, look quickly into the scope, and adjust the ocular so the crosshairs look crisp.  You don't want to look too long at the crosshair because your eye will refocus on it even if it is initially out of focus. So, keep looking away to let your eye relax, then back into the scope to check the crosshair with a neutral eye.
If the target image is blurry, that would need to be adjusted on the objective end.  Your scope does not have an adjustable objective, but you might be able to twist off the objective ring and turn the objective assembly to refocus at your desired distance.
Good luck!
