Hi. I have a couple green 301s and a couple blue ones. I noticed that neither of the Blue ones have a focus that screws out more than a tiny bit and my greens adjust really far out. Is this something that happens with all blue ones or just the ones that I have gotten? I have one more arriving today and I am hoping it focuses farther, but I sorta doubt it will.

I don't have any 301 lasers that use blue diodes. The greens are all DPSS 532nm lasers, much different from a direct diode laser like all the blue ones. That excludes any 473nm lasers as they can also be DPSS lasers.

You can't expect much from lasers that cost about the same a good cup of coffee approx $6 - $10 on eBay.
They are all, 301/303 series lasers, lowest cost/lowest end, minimal quality, mass produced Chinese units.
Some are focusable some are not.

If you want to try an excellent quality laser see either of the following:
