Note: When adjusting your reflex sight, please adhere to the standard safety precautions that apply when using any kind of weapons.

3. Mounting

We strongly recommend that you refer to a specialist workshop or gunsmith to attach the reflex sight to your gun. This will ensure that the sight is appropriately mounted on your gun.

This reflex sight has been designed to fit most weapons with MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails and Weaver-style rails. Thanks to its unlimited eye relief, the sight can be mounted at any position along the rail to suit the user’s preferences.

The red dot sight is designed to enable direct mounting onto a gun. Using a Torx T-10 key, turn the screw counter clockwise to loosen it (Fig. 1/6).

Position the sight on the rail at the desired location and turn the screw clockwise (at approx. 2.25 Nm) to tighten it in place.

Inserting the battery

Your MINOX RV 1 reflex sight has a red dot powered by a CR 2032 battery. The battery is included with the sight. The battery compartment is positioned on the MINOX RV 1 to the right of the line of sight (Fig. 2/3).

The compartment is covered by a screw cap (Fig. 3/1). To replace the battery, use a coin or other suitable object to turn the screw cap (Fig. 3/1) counter clockwise. To remove the battery, press a fingernail against the side of battery to release it from the holder.

When inserting the new battery, ensure that the negative pole is towards the sight. Now firmly screw the cap (Fig. 3/1) back into place. Please always use new and undamaged CR 2032 batteries from a quality manufacturer.

Note: As this sight uses a disposable battery, it must be disposed of appropriately after removal. For more information about the proper disposal of batteries, please contact your local authority, your waste disposal provider or the outlet from which you purchased your product.

Adjusting the red dot

The adjustment dial (Fig. 3/3) is used to switch the red dot on and off. When the ‘0’ on the dial is aligned with the white dot, the red dot has been deactivated. Turn the dial to ‘1’ to activate the red dot of your reflex sight. The dial can also be used to adjust the dot’s brightness. To simplify setting the dot to your preferred brightness without having to look through the sight, the dial is numbered from 1 to 11.

Note: Settings 1 to 3 are designed to be used at night. In daylight, only brightness settings from 4 to 11 will be visible. Please turn the dial to ‘0’ after use to turn the red dot off.

Note: If your reflex sight has been correctly mounted on your weapon, only minor adjustments will be necessary. If there are major deviations during aiming, the sight has not been correctly mounted.

5. Zeroing your sight (centering)

To prepare your sight before shooting, activate the red dot and remove the caps from the elevation and windage adjustments (Fig. 3/5 and Fig. 3/7).

You will find the elevation (Fig. 3/4) and windage (Fig. 3/6) adjustment screws. One click of the screws will change the point of impact by 1 MOA (2.91cm at 100 m).

Adjustments can be made by placing the caps in the inverted position onto the screws, or by using a suitable screwdriver.

Turning the screws clockwise will adjust the point of impact downwards or to the left.

Turning the screws counter clockwise will adjust the point of impact upwards or to the right.

When the required zero settings have been selected, replace and tighten the screw caps and deactivate the red dot.

6. Care and maintenance

MINOX reflex sights are characterized by their exceptional robustness. At the same time, they are precision optical devices and need to be treated with the appropriate care if they are to provide their best performance. For this reason, it is not advisable to disassemble the reflex sight – gaskets and seals designed to prevent moisture penetration and fogging may be damaged. When in use, protect your reflex sight against severe impact. When cleaning your gun, ensure that the lenses of the reflex sight are carefully covered so that they do not come into contact with cleaning agents. Wipe the housing of the reflex sight regularly with a soft, clean cloth.

7. Troubleshooting

Problems with accuracy

One of the most common causes of problems with accuracy (e.g. excessive impact deviations, point of impact inconsistencies) is due to incorrect mounting of the reflex sight. Ensure that the sight has been correctly and tightly mounted onto the rail. Also, make sure that the sight is not fouled by oil, cleaning agents or excessive soiling caused by the accumulation of smoke and powder residues. Use only ammunition with the appropriate lot numbers and use a solid shooting support (e.g. sandbags). If you continue to experience problems with accuracy, please bring your gun and sight to a specialist workshop to be checked.

Internal fogging

Fogging of internal optical components may occur if gaskets or seals have been damaged, allowing moisture to penetrate the sight. This can often be caused by inappropriate disassembly of the reflex sight. Please note that any damage resulting from inappropriate disassembly of this product is not covered by our warranty. If you encounter fogging of internal optical components, take your reflex sight to an authorized MINOX dealer or send it to the MINOX customer service team for repair.

Fogging of external optical components can often occur if the sight has been exposed to extreme temperature variations and high levels of humidity. Use of an anti-fogging agent can be very helpful in such cases. However, please bear in mind that using an inappropriate anti-fogging agent can impair the optical characteristics of the reflex sight, including its light transmission. The simplest and safest remedy is to remove the fog by using a soft, clean cloth. Avoid breathing on the lenses during cold weather.
