Default mis-aligned reticle

I have this no name scope for quite some time now. I just noticed that the reticle moved in an angle when the scope is sitting upright. I need to rotate the scope from its base to correct the alignment but somehow it looks silly.

Is this still repairable or give up and just buy a new one? It is a 1-4x24 scope.

Any recommendations for a repair shop around Los Angeles & OC area in case it is still salvageable?

Thanks,

The inner tube has loosened from the outer housing ... for better scopes.
For cheaper scopes, the glass that contains the reticle is loose from the inner tube.

Nytwolf...no chance of fixing it? I would say mine is the cheaper one.

If it is the cheaper one, you could take it apart and try to fix it. I wouldn't keep my hopes up too high though.

Looks like the reticle from a GRSC scope:

As for repairing it, if it is in fact a GRSC, you might be able to get it repaired/replaced by them. If it's a knockoff, I'd get out the tools and gut that sucker. If nothing else, you'll get an education on the internal construction of scopes. Best case scenario, you are able to fix it, but lose the internal nitrogen purge that keeps it from fogging up inside when changing temperature.
