Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Here are two manuals for Leupold scopes:


I think your Leupold scope will need repairing. That problem does not seem to me to justify any other recourse or attempts.

On the other hand, repairing it will (it seems, upon investigation) NOT cost you money - it is protected by a lifetime guarantee:

The place to send for servicing or replacement under that lifetime guarantee, and instructions, are here:

and the address, again, is

Leupold & Stevens, Inc.
Attn: Product Service Dept.
14400 NW Greenbrier Parkway
Beaverton, OR 97006
