Explanation of Minute of Angle (MOA)

MOA unit of arc measurements are based on degrees and
minutes. There are 360 degrees in a circle and 60 minutes in a
degree for a total of 21,600 minutes (MOA) in a circle. A minute of angle will subtend 1.05 inches at a distance of 100 yards.

Second Focal Plane (SFP) Reticle

The reticle in your Riton riflescope is a Second Focal Plane (SFP). SFP reticles are located in rear of the image erecting and magnifying lenses. The advantage of a SFP reticle is that it always maintains the same appearance. Shooters using reticle
hash marks should be aware that the listed subtensions used
for estimating range, holdover, and windage correction are at the maximum magnification.


Simply turn the magnification ring to the desired magnification
level. Lower powers offer a wider field of view while higher powers offer a zoomed in focused view.

Reticle Information

The X3 Tactix ARD has a 2 Minutes of Angle (MOA) dot, is night
vision compatible and can run up to 1600 hours on one single
CR2032 battery.

Explanation of Parallax

Parallax describes a situation where the focal plane of the object in the scope is offset from the reticle. If you have parallax, you have an optical illusion that must be corrected. Parallax should not be confused with focus. Parallax compensation changes neither the focus of the reticle nor the focus of the image; it simply moves the planes at which these two objects are in focus so that they share the same plane.


1. Set your fast focus eye piece for your eye. Look at a blank backdrop and turn your eye piece in and out until you have a crisp sharp reticle.
2. Look through scope and place cross-hair on target. Move your head around without leaving exit pupil. Does the cross hair move or become blurry?
3. If the cross-hair moves or is blurry, set the side parallax to estimated range, use this as starting point and fine tune as needed.


Illumination System

The variable intensity reticle illumination system aids in low light


1. Rotate the adjustment knob in either direction.
Note – The illumination knob allows for 11 levels of brightness intensity.

1. Unscrew the outer cap.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Replace with a new CR2032 battery with positive side out.
4. Re-install the battery cap and be sure to tighten fully.

Factory Zero

Your Riton riflescope is pre-set from the factory with the reticle in the center of the adjustment ranges.

1. Dial turret one direction until it will no longer rotate.
NOTE – Do not force the turret past it’s stopping point.
2. Dial turret opposite direction counting how many MOA it
3. Divide that total number of MOA in half and dial to that
number for your factory zero.
4. Complete this procedure for both windage and elevation
dials to approximately center the reticle.

Mounting Your Riton Red Dot

Mounting Your Riton Red Dot

1. Loosen the nut on the bottom of the RED DOT base. Then
attach the lower half to the rail/base and make sure this is
solidly seated in the base groove. To prevent recoil injury,
position the ring so that you have at least four inches of eye

2. Note. the Riton RRD has an unlimited eye relife.
3. If you plan to mount a maginfier behind your Red Dot be sure
to leave sufficant space for this as you mount your RRD
4. Before tightening the scope ring screws, adjust for maximum
eye relief to avoid injury from recoil.
5. Be sure the base clamp is hooked around the outside of the
rail/base. Press downward and

Eye Relief and Reticle Alignment


1. Set the riflescope magnification to the highest setting.
2. Slide the riflescope as far forward as possible in the rings.
3. While looking through the riflescope in a normal shooting
position, slide the riflescope back towards your face,
paying attention to the field of view. Just as the full field of
view is visible, stop the movement of the riflescope.
4. Without disturbing the front-back placement, rotate the
riflescope until the vertical crosshair exactly matches the
vertical axis of the rifle. Use of a reticle leveling tool, a
weight hung on a rope, or bubble levels to help with this
5. After aligning the reticle, tighten and torque the ring
screws down per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Bore Sighting

Bore sighting is a preliminary procedure to achieve proper
alignment of the scope with the rifle’s bore. Initial bore sighting of the riflescope will decrease the amount of time and ammunition you need to use at the range.
This can be done by using a mechanical or laser bore sighter
according to the manufacturer’s instructions or by removing the
bolt and sighting through the barrel on some rifles.


1. Start sight-in process from 25 yards, from solid rest fire
3-shot group, ensuring that you fire at same spot each time.
Use grid lines on target to center and level your crosshairs.
2. After the first 3-shot group, make adjustments to bring bullet
impact to center of target you’re shooting at. Repeat this
process at 100 yards and you will have accurate 100 yard

Note – Scope graduations are 1 MOA. Scope turrets are marked with direction of bullet impact change. At 100 yards a 1 MOA scope adjustment will move bullet impact 1 inch in direction adjusted. At 25 yards that same 1 MOA adjustment will be 4 times smaller, so 1 MOA adjustment at 25 yards will move bullet impact 1/4 of an inch.


1. Place the rifle solidly on a rest and remove the bolt.
2. Sight through the bore at a target approximately 100 yards
3. Move the rifle and the rest until the target is visually centered
inside the barrel.
4. With the target centered in the bore, make windage and
elevation adjustments until the reticle crosshair is also
centered over the target.

Note – If a laser bore sighting or any other similar device inside the bore was used, it must be removed before firing. An obstructed bore can cause serious damage to the gun and possible injury to the shooter.


Problems thought to be associated with the scope are often actually mount problems. Take time to ensure the mounts are tight to the rifle and that scope is secured and doesn’t twist or move in the rings. Confirm that correct base and rings are being used and in the proper orientation. Be sure to torque rings per manufacturer’s specs.
Keep in mind there are many issues that can cause poor bullet grouping. Always utilize a solid rest and maintain good shooting technique. Have a qualified gunsmith look over your rifle to be sure all things are in working order. See that the action and barrel are properly cleaned. Some rifles and ammunition don’t work well together, try different ammunition and see if accuracy improves.
