Not like newer designs where the mask moves with the reticle carrier, so it always appears centered, at the expense of up to 30% of the possible field of view.

"the ring that the adjuster screws contact" being the thing that looks like a ladle with a hole in it? Everything else in there looks like a lens or a "mask". If it is the "ladle" then that solves the alignment problem. I was dreading the thought of putting the crosshairs on a lens or mask and then trying to reassemble the scope so the crosshairs are aligned with the turrets.

I've already collected a crosshair kit from my hair brushes.
