What do the 2 knobs on a scope do?

What do the knobs on sniper scopes do?
These knobs are used to sight in or “zero” your scope. The knob on the top is the elevation adjustment and the one on the side affects your windage. These knobs are in most cases actually covers on the adjustment mechanism and can be removed by simply unscrewing them.
Is a 4×32 scope any good?
The Prime 1-4×32 is an excellent example of quality for the money. Yes, it’s super cheap, but it will be more than adequate for many hunters and shooters.

What is a 4×32 scope used for?
If you are going to be carrying your rifle around a lot, shooting while standing or on the move at targets from 10 yards to 300 – the fixed power 4×32 will be a good choice.

What magnification is 4×32?
