Hello

I have bought Leupold Mark6 scope, this scope is very nice scope.
But this product has a problem on Elevation knob.

The Elevation knob is misaligned from center when I turn it to minimum level.
Can I adjust this by myself ?

I dont have that model but there should be some hex screws on the side you would just loosen them lift up turn to adjust press down and re-tighten the hex screws.

I am not sure if I understand what you are doing. It sounds like you turned the elevation adjustment all the way down and if that is the case I am thinking that you hit the end of the adjustment travel. And that maybe why it is off. If you go up a few clicks does it line up then? And if that is the case unless you have some sort of MOA base you will be shooting very low. When a manufacture states that a scope has say 100MOA of elevation adjustment that really means that you have about 50MOA of elevation adjustment.

I think if I understand what you are asking is can the indicator numbers on the dial used to sight the scope can be reset to "0" at the bottom of the adjustment for the scope.  Most Leupold scopes that I am familiar with have a set screw in the cap of the adjustment dial that can be loosened and reset to zero at the least amount of windage or elevation to read zero on the dial.  This can be easily done and than retighten the screw to hold that setting.
 
I usually set the dial on zero in the middle of the adjustment range to locate zero elevation and windage for the scope.  However it can easily be done either way.
