1. Scope description

1.1 Introduction

The Schmidt & Bender Exos hunting 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 Illumination Control

Your new Exos riflescope is equipped with the Flash Dot technology which provides a projected bright red dot along with a reticle in the second focal plane.

First, set the intensity of the illuminated dot 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 red dot 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. 4)

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.

4.3 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. 5).

5. Preliminary adjusting and fine adjusting when sighting in

5.1 Using the Posicon turrets

For use of the turrets, please remove the caps from the windage and elevation turret by unscrewing counter-clockwise. (Illustr. 6)

Your new riflescope is equipped with the Posicon-windage and elevation adjustment. On delivery, the black arrow in the white screen of the turret indicator points onto the center, symbolized by an – o -.

This ensures that in both left-to-right and up-to-down direction the maximal amount of adjustment range is available.

The arrow of the so called “Posicon-Clock” provides information on the position of the reticle at any time. (Illustr. 7)

The green sector indicates the square adjustment range in which one windage and elevation adjustment do not interfere with each other. The red sector indicates the so called buffer, which provides an additional amount of adjustment in either direction, but in which one adjustment direction might interfere with the other.

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.

The centering of the target pattern and thus zeroing of the scope is then performed according to paragraphs 5.2 and 5.3.

5.2 Elevation adjustment

The point of impact is moved by 1cm on 100m on every click. A too low point of impact is corrected by rotating the elevation turret clockwise into the direction indicated by “H” or “U”, a too high point of impact by rotating the elevation turret counter-clockwise into the direction indicated by “T” or “D” (see Illustr. 8).

A too far left point of impact is corrected by rotating the elevation turret clockwise into the direction indicated by “R”, a too high point of impact by rotating the elevation turret counter-clockwise into the direction indicated by “L” (see Illustr. 8).

All obtained reticle positions may be marked by the aluminum ring below the knurl.

To do so, please unscrew the cross-slot screw in the Posicon screen and position and turn the aluminum ring until the index dot and the index triangle match. Then screw the cross-slot screw tightly. (Illustr. 10)
