Definition of the various categories of information found in this manual
Note: Additional Information
Important: Non-compliance may result in damage to the device and accessories
Attention: Non-compliance may result in personal injury
Warning: Non-compliance may result in serious injury or death
The first prerequisite for a robust point of impact is the correct mounting of the rifle scope on the weapon. A wide selection of mounting parts are available from specialist retailers. We recommend using only high-quality parts from renowned manufacturers that match the quality characteristics of your Leica rifle scope.
You can mount the device yourself, but you will have to ensure a perfectly aligned and tension-free structure. Leica strongly recommends contracting a specialist workshop.
We recommend gluing the lower mounting ring to prevent any travel of the rifle scope within the ring mount.
SETTING THE ENLARGEMENT
- Turn the magnification adjustment ring 4
-higher magnification = to the right
-lower magnification = to theleft
The viewfinder has a diopter setting function with a range between +1 and -3 diopter to allow glasses wearers the use of the Leica rifle scope without eyeglasses (diopter compensation).
- Aiming at a distant object
- Turn the eyecup 1a until the object is perfectly in focus
SETTING THE LUMINOUS RETICLE
Reticle illumination is switched On or Off via the adjustment ring 8. The brightness of the illuminated dot can be adjusted in multiple increments.
- Turn the setting wheel 8
-Level •: off
-Level 1–5: at night/twilight
-Level 6–10: in daylight
ADJUSTING THE POINT OF IMPACT
A calibration of the reticle to the weapon will be required in case of an offset of the point of impact. The procedure is the same on both setting turrets (elevation: 5, page: 6).
ZEROING THE TURRET SCALES
The procedure is the same on both setting turrets (elevation: 5, page: 6).
- Adjusting the point of impact (see p. 15)
- Flip the locking toggle 5a/6a up and turn it in anti-clockwise direction to release the knurled wheel 5b/6b
- Remove the knurled wheel 5b/6b and replace it in the desired position
- Turn the locking toggle 5a/6a in clockwise direction and re-tighten it to secure the setting
Note: Once you have done your adjustments on knurled wheels, you can get back to the basic setting for the firing distance after any change to the point of impact by simply going back to the 0positions, without having to remember or note down anything.
Leica rifle scopes with a maximum magnification of 12x are adjusted parallax-free up to a range of 100 m, so that you can see the reticle and the target at the chosen distance in perfect focus concurrently. Any deviations in the point of impact with the eye not perfectly centered are generally negligible. With larger magnifications, however, these deviations must be taken into consideration. That is why rifle scopes with magnification ranges above 12x have parallax compensation.
- Turn the adjusting ring 9 until the image of the target appears in perfect focus
-We recommend using the highest magnification for the most accurate settings.
-An optimum adjustment is achieved when reticle and image no longer move relative to one another when you change the position of your eye over the eyepiece.
SETTING THE ZERO STOP
Zero Stop is a freely definable height adjustment stop, with which the adjustment range can be limited. It offers a palpable stop without having to take your eye off the lens. Zero Stop is deactivated ex works.
Accessing the Hex Key
- Flip the locking toggle of the lateral adjustment turret 6a up and turn it in anti-clockwise direction to release the knurled wheel 6b
- Pull the hex key out
Setting the Zero Stop (Fig. A—C)
- Flip the locking toggle of the elevation adjustment turret 5a up and turn it in anti-clockwise direction to release the knurled wheel 5b
- Remove the knurled wheel
- Use the hex key to release the three attachment screws
- Push down the Zero Stop
- Turn in anti-clockwise direction to the stop
- Make sure that the two cams fit seamlessly together.
- Use the hex key to tighten the three attachment screws
• Don’t use too much force!
- Replacing the knurled wheel
- Turn the locking toggle 5a in clockwise direction and re-tighten it to secure the setting
- Ensure that the three attachment screws are sufficiently tightened to prevent accidental changes to the setting. Don’t use too much force!
- Don’t forget to put the hex key back and to fix the lateral adjustment turret.
LEICA BALLISTIC CALCULATOR
We recommend using the Leica Ballistic Calculator to take full advantage of the reticle quick adjustment. Taking into account relevant parameters like firing distance, line of sight height, temperature and elevation, the Leica Ballistic Calculator can calculate the trajectory for virtually any ammunition.
The Ballistic Calculator can be found here:
- Your Leica rifle scope requires no special care. Coarse dirt particles like sand should be removed with a soft brush or simply blown off. Fingerprints, etc. on objective lenses and eyepiece lenses can be pre-cleaned with a damp cloth, and then wiped dry with a clean leather or lint-free cloth.
- The rifle scope should be stored in a well-ventilated, dry and cool place to prevent fungal growth (particularly important in humid climates).
- Do not use alcohol or chemical cleaning solutions on the optics or housing.
- Do not use excessive force when cleaning a severely soiled lens surface. The coating is abrasion resistant, but not impervious to sand or salt crystals.
- The housing should be cleaned using a damp leather cloth only. Using a dry cloth may cause friction, which may result in a static discharge.
- The app is available from Apple App Store™/Google Play Store™
INFO: TYPES OF LUMINOUS RETICLE
Various types of luminous reticles are available.
Please visit the download section of the Leica homepage for more information and technical details on the available luminous reticle types.
