Schmidt & Bender 5-45×56 PM II High Power

1. Scope description

1.1 Introduction

The Schmidt & Bender PM II series scopes are designed to meet the unique
challenges of high precision shooting. Their quality and function make it
possible to achieve exceptional shooting results as well as to fulfill the critical and demanding needs of official, law enforcement and tactical applications. Strict observation of the following operating instructions is prerequisite for successful long-term use.

1.2 Safety instructions

Never look into the sun or into laser light with the scope. This may cause serious eye injuries. Do not tamper with the scope. Any repairs beyond the
maintenance described in the maintenance manual should only be
performed by Schmidt & Bender or by other specialists authorized by Schmidt & Bender. Protect the scope against shocks beyond normal use.

Avoid unnecessary long exposure of the scope to direct sunlight; intense and excessive sun radiation will cause extremely high temperatures inside the tube which may be detrimental to the scope.

The scope must be properly mounted to the firearm by a qualified specialist.
Perfect mounting is an essential requirement for maximum accuracy and
efficient functioning of the firearm and the scope. Be sure to assume the
proper firing position and keep a correct eye relief in order to obtain an
optimal full field of view and to avoid any injuries due to the recoil of the
weapon.

4.1 Adjusting the image focus with the diopter adjustment of the eyepiece

The eyepiece provides the adjustment of the reticle focus to the individual
eye diopter. Set the scope to the highest magnification. Rotate the eyepiece
counterclockwise until it stops. Rotate the eyepiece clockwise until you see a
sharp image of the reticle (see Illustr. 3).

4.2 Parallax adjustment

The 5-45×56 PM II scope provides parallax compensation with an easily operable setting wheel (Illustr. 4), positioned as a third turret opposite the
windage adjustment. With this turret the shooter may easily focus targets at
any distance without having to interrupt his target acquisition.

The parallax adjustment turret is engraved with distance markings. If the
distance to the target is known rotate the turret so that the corresponding
distance marking lines up with the index mark on the saddle.

If the distance to the target is not known set the scope to the highest
magnification and then move the adjustment ring of the parallax compensation in the direction of the estimated distance until you obtain a focused image. Now the parallax has been properly adjusted and you may
also read the distance on the turret.

4.3 Illumination control

The illuminated reticle is designed to help identifying the correct aiming point on a dark target and/or in poor light conditions.

First, set the intensity of the illuminated reticle to the respective light conditions. To do this the illumination control may be turned from -0- toward position -11- until a setting is achieved where the illuminated portion of the reticle is just bright enough to be picked up by the eye without glaring. If possible, this adjustment should be performed under quiet conditions prior to the actual shooting (see Illustr. 5).

If the illumination is not switched off by the shooter after use, illumination
control electronics automatically switch off the illumination after 6 hours.
If the illumination starts blinking, the battery is low and should be replaced.

4.4 Changing the battery

To replace the battery screw off the battery cap and remove the old battery.

Please discard the used battery in an ecologically compatible way!

Place the new battery (coin cell CR 2032/3V) with the „+” facing up into the
battery compartment. Do only change the battery in a dry environment.
Battery service life is at least 100 hours at the highest intensity (see Illustr. 6).

4.5 Using the reticle for the distance estimation

The different available reticles offer a variety of possibilities to estimate or
measure important parameters by means of reticle subtensions. This allows the shooter to place highly precise shots even on large distances by use of the estimates, the ballistic compensator and the parallax adjustment.

The reticle is in the first focal plane such that the reticle subtensions remain
constant on all magnifications.

Exemplary for the P4F reticle in the first focal plane (see picture below) the
distance “B” of the longer lines corresponds to 10cm/100m. The shooter can
thus calculate the distance to a target which size is known by measuring it with the reticle pattern: If a 10cm sized target fits in between two large lines,
it is positioned in a distance of 100m.

For arbitrary object sizes and distances a relation exists according to the
following formula:

Instructions schmidt & bender 5-45x56 PM II High Power

Whereas

𝑑 is the distance to the target,
𝑔 is the estimated size of the target,
𝑎 is the size of the target on the reticle pattern.

According to the measured distance, the parallax can be set and the bullet
drop can be compensated by the elevation turret.

available datasheets.

5. Point of impact correction

5.1 Using the elevation turret and the windage turret

Elevation turret – Lockable Double Turn Turret with More Tactile Clicks

The elevation turret includes the following features:

  • Double turn
  • TC (more tactile click)
  • Zero Stop
  • Locking function

The elevation turret provides a fine click adjustment value in addition to a
large elevation adjustment in two revolutions. When the turret is rotated into the second revolution a small cylinder pops up on top of the turret which indicates to the user that the second turret revolution has been reached (see Illustr. 7).

The MTC (more tactile click) elevation turret has an audible “clunk” on every
10th click. The elevation turret includes a locking function which prevents the inadvertent adjustment of the turret.
To lock the turret, the outer flange with the engraving must be pushed down
in direction of the scope tube until “LOCKED” appears on the turret. To unlock the turret, the outer flange must be pulled up until the “LOCKED” indicator completely disappears.

Windage turret – Single Turn Turret with Zero Stop and Protective Cap

The windage turret includes the following features:

  • Single turn
  • Zero Stop
  • Protective cap

The low profile windage turret is protected against inadvertent adjustment by a cap. To operate the turret, the cap is rotated counter-clockwise for removal. (Illustr. 9) The windage turret has one positive “clunk” at the zero position which provides a “0” reference point.

5.2 Preliminary adjusting and fine adjusting when sighting in

When sighting in the scope for the first time, or re-sighting the scope due to
service or repair, a test shoot for zeroing the scope must be performed on a
100m distance. Therefore, ensure that the parallax is set to the correct value
of 100m and that both elevation and windage turrets are set to “0”. The
double turn turret must be set to the first revolution.
The centering of the target pattern is then performed according to paragraph 5.3 and 0.

Lock the elevation turret, loosen the two setscrews on the outside diameter in line with the “LOCKED” indicator using an Allen key (see Illustr. 7). Unlock the turret by pulling up the outer flange and turn the turret until the engraved “0” is indicated by the triangle on the saddle. Lock the elevation turret by pushing down the outer flange with the engraving and tighten the two setscrews with an Allen key.

To zero the windage turret, removed the turret cap and loosen the two
setscrews turn the turret to zero. Then retighten the screw and screw the turret cap back onto the turret.

The turrets are secured by an additional third slotted screw which should only be removed when completely replacing the turret due to damage.
The turret clicks can still be felt and heard when the screws are unlocked. This has no impact on the process of zeroing as the thread piece does not move while the setscrews are loose.

5.3 Elevation adjustment

The point of impact is moved by 0.1mrad (1cm on 100m) with every click. A
too low point of impact is corrected by rotating the elevation turret counter
clockwise (see Illustr. 11), a too high point of impact by rotating the elevation turret clockwise.

For clockwise rotating turrets this relation is opposite!

Windage adjustment

The point of impact is moved by 0.1mrad (1cm on 100m) with every click. A
too far left point of impact is corrected by rotating the windage turret counter clockwise (see Illustr. 12), a too far right point of impact is corrected by rotating the turret clockwise.

For clockwise rotating turrets this relation is opposite!

6. Maintenance

6.1 Using the scope covers

To protect the scope and its lenses against adverse environmental conditions like sand, dust, rain, snow, etc., the protective flip-up caps of objective and eyepiece should be closed after every use of the scope. Before shooting, make sure that the caps are open.

6.2 Care and maintenance

Schmidt & Bender PM II scopes do not require any special maintenance. All
metal parts have a hard anodized surface that is extremely scratch-resistant
and easy to care for.

For cleaning outer surfaces, use a clean and, if necessary, a slightly damp
cloth.

For cleaning the optics use the included Schmidt & Bender cleaning kit.

Before wiping the optic’s surfaces, use a dry brush to remove coarse dirt or
dust particles. Slight impurities may then be wiped off using an optic’s
cleaning cloth.

Breathe onto the optic’s surfaces before cleaning them, this helps with the
cleaning process. Excessive dirt may be removed using the cleaning liquid
included in the cleaning kit.

Avoid dry rubbing on the outside optical surfaces, this may harm the precious coatings.

6.3 Storage temperature

The approved temperature range for the storage of the scope is from -55°C
to 70°C.
