First time posting here, but I had the exact same problem with my Redhead .22 scope being out of focus and went so far as to replace it with a Simmons A/O .22 scope before realizing that there IS an adjustment on the Redhead one that fixes the problem.
Look at the eyepiece bell on the rear of the scope and you'll see there is a locking nut screwed tight against the bell holding it in place. Back this thredded ring off several turns and then you can rotate the eyepiece to focus it. That worked for me and now I'm kinda' sorry that I replaced it, because it's actually a very good scope now that it's focused.
Hope this is helpful and that it works for you.
