My friend and I were trying to figure out how this scope adjusts. Anyone seen one like this before and do you know how to adjust it( ie: 1/4 or 1/2 MOA). What are the numbers on it for? We got it on a used rifle.

That's the standard look for all their scopes..it's 1/4 inch but it's on a slide system rather than a click system....sight the gun in, rotate the little silver ring to zero and your done for life...I have at least ten of their scopes that use this system and have never had a problem with any of them..want to check to see if it moved, just look at your zero point, it's really very simple...

TECHNICALLY it's a 0/0 system because of the slide involved, you can stop it inbetween the lines anywhere you choose to, it's marked off in 1/2 but you can stop it inbetween that's why some call it a 1/4 system but it really is a zero system...Either way because of the lifetime warrenty in the average hunting rifle you'll never wear it out, I had a 6 x 18 that used the system and wore it out in about 5 years, it was replaced free, but that was on a target competition groundhog match factory gun, I adjusted it more in one match than the average would in a lifetime, and over 5 years of 20 matches per season it finally gave up the ghost..but for a hunting rifle you'd never wear one out...
Have the same on my 3x9 compact scope on my 308. Was shooting and it was jumping everywhere. Took the scope off and sent it back and leopold rebuilt it and it is as good as new. I had a seal go bad and the gasses leaked out. It was sent back and back on the gun sighted in all in 2 weeks. Awsome service and no questions asked.

Leupold is the best. I had a 70's vintage 3x9 on a heavy barrel varmint gun and it fell off the sand bags while I took a new target out. TWICE! My fault I know,They charged me for a new front lens and shipping. It's on my Dad's gun now. In Texas,a flood covered lots of guns under 10 ft of water and mud. The only company that stood by their scopes was ......Leupold! Frank's right, the adjustments are infinite. The lines are 1/2 Minute. Sight it in,beat it up and forget about it.
