As I posted before about The Winchester model 94 30-30 [ 1955]
The scope is an old Weaver K3 B60 steel tube, bell on the eye piece only. On an off set Williams mount.
Adjustments are under screw on caps. The "UP" [ on top] is set at 2 and one half marks. [just short of the third mark] Adjusted with a small flat head screw driver. Standard cross hairs, no other markings.
I have never used a scope. [ Iron sights only]
Power ? I think 3 maybe ???
Any way to get a manual or teaching material on this scope??
Thanks in advance.

There's not much to it. Your top adjustment is elevation the side one is windage. The numbers on the settings don't mean much until you need to adjust it then you use the increments. It is indeed a 3 power or 3x scope and those old Weavers work very well, I have several on various vintage rifles. The 60 B series were Weaver's first pressurized scopes which was an attempt to keep them from fogging. It is probably vintage to the rifle if not just a couple of years younger. Just guessing here but the pressurization is probably long leaked out for a scope that old but it will work anyway just try to keep it dry. The only way to tell if the scope is "on target" is to shoot it and be prepared to make adjustments as needed.
