L.N. Mogg Rifle Scopes
An excellent rifle telescope, manufactured by L. N. Mogg, Marcellus, N. Y., and shown in Figure 8, on the Savage rifles, has the split sleeve, and its advantages are that it gives more adjustability and allows one to use the glass on different rifles where the frame differs in length. If a change is desired all one has to do is to loosen two screws and slide the sleeve, then tightened up where it is wanted. The principle is similar to the "clutch" used in transmitting power. These telescopes are made adjustable for various eyes. Towards the front is a screw in a slot that controls the object lense, and by loosening that it can be moved to accommodate the eye of the young or aged as well as for near and far distances.
