Just received an older (Made in West Germany) Schmidt and Bender 1.25-4x22 from eBay. The optics are perfect! Although... it makes a non-consistent grinding sound when you rotate the power ring. It also has a slight rattle in the same area that is the most noticeable at 1.25 power.

Broken? Loose lens?

If you had a loose lens I'd think the image would be substandard.  The grinding sound could be anything that's worked it's way between the power ring and the tube.  I'd send it to S&B USA to get them to go through it and see what kind of shape it's is in.
