    The magnification of a rifle scope tells you how powerful it is, with a larger number indicating more power. A 2x magnification would double the size of what you are viewing, where 4x would quadruple it. Many are capable of variable power, which can easily be adjusted to zoom in or out as needed. Variable power would be indicated by a pair of numbers before the x, telling you the lowest and highest power available. A common variant is a 3-9x40, which can be adjusted anywhere from 3x to 9x. Target scopes are much more powerful, with magnifications anywhere from 12x up to 40x being common.
