Help, my Mark 4 M3 Illumnated TMR arrived and it only has 55 MOA. The specs say 65 and I cant get a full rotation out of the elevation turret. Should this go back?!
 
Thanks

The last Leupold I examined was a Mark 4 Illuminated TMR with a Dark Earth Finish.  It is suppose to have 65 MOA and had an actual 76 MOA travel.  I believe there is something wrong with your elevation knob mechanism and I would send this scope back as soon as possible.  For the money you paid, you deserve better.

maybe the turret was set with the elevation almost all the way up. Try lossening the turret screws and turning the elevation down then retighten the screws. Mine was like this and it wouldn't go all the way up until I re adjusted the cap.
