SOURCE: 8x32 swat scope

It's not a high end scope. Most times you're better off buying a lower power scope of better quality and you'll still be able to see more clearly than with a higher power yet lower quality scope.

Consider that 6x, and lower power, scopes were pretty much standard for WWII snipers, and that fixed 10x is still an accepted power level for snipers these days.

Pretty much all rifle scopes have great warranties. Send it into weaver and i'm sure they will fix it plus replace any parts. I'm sure they will charge for missing parts but it would be best for them to look at it and check it out. TP

SOURCE: i have a weaver k-8 scope with adj. rings on front bezel ??????

the front ring is for adjusting point of impact at a given range,,,its called a "parallax ajustment" it corrects for the scopes inaccuracies over its full range say from 10 yds to 100 yds there a bit of a pain on a hunting rifle as you need to focus them every time and that slows down your shooting, when only a snap shot will get the kill you cant wate to mess about focusing the darm scope so i never use them on my rifles,,unless im target shooing,, or im snipping when i have time to take my shot,,,
(a head shot only!) only a parallax scope is spot on aim from 10yds to infinity

2.5x8 variable leupold loses focus when change power


The only reason a variable power Leupold scope should lose focus when changing power is that the object you are viewing is too close to view on a high magnification. Try again while viewing something 50 yards/meters away, and if it still loses focus, then it probably needs repair.

Leupold scopes aren't user-servicable, and you wouldn't want to try to take it apart yourself, but that's okay, because Leupold has one of the best reputations among optics manufacturers for standing behind their products. If there's a problem, you can call their customer service department at 1-800-538-7653, or submit a request on their online form here:
http://www.leupold.com/corporate/contact-us/service-support/

Either way, don't give up on it. Leupolds hold their value, and you could probably even sell a problem scope to someone who is willing to send it in for repair.

Good luck!

How to use


Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

This is your LOWEST magnification. Then try other higher power eyepieces. While you are out there focused on a distant object. Line up the small finder scope on that object without moving the telescope. Use the small thumb screws on the finder scope to put the "X" crosshairs on the same object as you see in the eyepiece.

I have a Redfield 'LO-PRO' rifle scope, 3X9 variable, on my 300 Win Mag. It is about 20 to 25 years old and the cross hairs must be loose. They are not straight up and down anymore. Will this affect the...


It doesn't sound like anything's broken, it sounds like the scope has shifted in the rings, as you said "they are not straight up and down anymore", which won't effect your accuracy at short ranges, but if there's long ranges (more than 100 yards) you're going to be off some.
You can loosen the ring screws until the scope will turn, either 2 or 4 screws that hold the two halves of the ring together. There are numerous tools to help you align the crosshairs, but when I do this job I just square-up the reticle (crosshairs) by looking at the center of the reticles and let your eye follow the bottom crosshair down and make sure it is centered on the back of the bolt or receiver. If you need help doing this job, take it to your local gunsmith, he'll be able to square these up for you and boresight it.
Hope this helps, Mark the Gunsmith

K98 scope


K98's were fitted with a Hensoldt ZF4 or ZF6 if you want a WW2 purist type of rifle. Hensoldt are part of Zeiss. Zeiss market their military scopes and binoculars under the hensoldt name. You can pick these up second hand for around 500 US Dollars.

If you are fitting a scope for shooting purposes, one with variable magnification is a good choice but you won't need a higher power than 10. Non variable a 6 power is more than adequate for the K98. Leupold have a wonderful range of tried and tested scopes in various price ranges. If you don't mind spending more than a thousand dollars on a scope Schmidt and Bender make magnificent scopes, some of which you will find attached to US Military sniper rifles.

There is a lot of choice with a lot of difference in price. Too cheap a scope will not be able to handle the recoil of the K98 and you will find yourself constantly adjusting it.
