The shape/size of the front objective, the knurling on the adjustable objective, and especially the turret adjustments (which are typical of burris optics) lead me to believe it is a Burris Timberline 4.5-14 x 32 model. The only thing that looks off to me is the magnification ring knurling is wrong according to the pictures. It might be an older model that has been slightly updated.

I'm trying to read the ring of text on the eyebox and it looks like 4X-12X and the second word looks like "Company" to me, which makes no sense. Pics of the timberline do show text though on that part of the eyebox.

Heres a pic of the scope (click):

and a pic of the turrets that burris uses on alot of their low to mid range optics:

I'm guessing that scope or an older version of it.
