Introduction

The Trijicon Credo® / Credo® HX is a versatile, variable powered riflescope with an electronically illuminated reticle. Featuring a high quality lens system with full multi-layer coatings, the Credo / Credo HX provides an incredibly clear sight picture. The reticle illumination is powered by a single CR2032 lithium battery and has an easy-tooperate brightness adjustment dial with ten brightness settings and an “off” feature between each setting. The Credo / Credo HX features a hard anodized aluminum body that protects against corrosion and
is waterproof to a depth of ten feet (3m). With a generous adjustment range for windage and elevation, precise adjustment increments, and a resettable zero, the Credo / Credo HX riflescope delivers the features required for pinpoint accuracy.
Each model features:
• Fully multi-coated broadband anti-reflective lenses with enhanced scratch resistance
• CR2032 battery illumination
• 10 brightness settings with “off” between each setting
• Precise, crisp adjusters
• Highly durable, lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum housing

Preparation for Use

To unscrew the battery cap, hold the Brightness Adjustment Dial in place and turn the top cap counter-clockwise. Install the CR2032 battery into the battery compartment, positive side up. Inserting the battery improperly will keep the optic from illuminating.

Adjustment Procedures

ZEROING THE RIFLESCOPE

There are two different types of adjusters in the Credo family. Capped adjusters are located under the removable turret cap. External adjusters allow you to adjust point of impact by rotating the exposed elevation and the external windage turret in some models. Other models have external adjusters that lock, lift to unlock and rotate.
The riflescope is zeroed using either the adjusters located under the adjuster caps (F / G) or by rotating the external adjuster if equipped.

Trijicon Credo Instruction Manual

There are two adjusters, one for windage (right side of scope) and one for elevation (top). The arrows on the adjusters indicate direction to turn the adjusters in order to change bullet impact.
For example, using the ¼ MOA per click adjuster, if the point of impact is two MOA to the left of the aiming point, the windage adjuster should be moved eight clicks in the direction marked R (Right). This will move the bullet impact two MOA to the right and onto the point of aim. Similarly, if the bullet impact is
striking low on the target, move the elevation adjuster in the Up direction. Once the optic’s elevation and windage is zeroed, reset the adjuster to zero.

Adjustment Procedures

EXTERNAL ADJUSTERS / RETURN TO ZERO

Once the rifle’s elevation is zeroed, remove the adjuster turret by turning the threaded top cap counter-clockwise (1). Remove the top cap (2), remove the adjuster body (turret) (3), then loosen the three hex screws around the Return to Zero disk with the provided 1.5mm hex wrench. After loosening the hex screws, let
the Return to Zero disc drop to the adjuster housing (4) and rotate clockwise (5) until the Return to Zero disk stops. Once the Return to Zero is set to the desired position, tighten the three hex screws to 5 in. oz. or finger tight using the 1.5mm hex wrench (6). To complete the Return to Zero adjustment, reinstall the adjuster body at the zero position (7), and reinstall the top cap (8).

LOCKING EXTERNAL ADJUSTERS (1-8×28)

Zero the rifle as described previously and lock the adjusters by pushing down. Once locked, remove the adjuster body by turning the threaded top cap counter-clockwise (1). Once removed, lift the adjuster body and rotate to zero (2). Press the adjuster body back down and reinstall the threaded cap (3).

DIOPTER ADJUSTER (EASY FOCUS EYEPIECE)

The Diopter Adjuster (B) allows the user to quickly match the user’s prescription. Adjustments are made by simply turning the Diopter Adjuster in the direction which brings the reticle into focus. An indicator (+ / -) is a useful reference point for returning the focus to your customized position.

ADJUSTABLE BRIGHTNESS

The Brightness Adjustment Dial is located on the left side of the housing and is equipped with an “OFF” setting between each of the brightness settings. This enables the user to be able to easily switch the unit on or off and return to the last brightness setting. The brightness adjustment for the optic has ten
settings, (1) being the dimmest and (10) the brightest. If a dual color offering, there will be ten settings, five of each color, with (1) being the dimmest and (5) brightest for each color. Turn the Brightness Adjustment Dial to the preferred brightness setting based on conditions.

Adjustment Procedures

MAGNIFICATION DIAL

Trijicon Credo riflescopes are available in various ranges of
magnification. Magnification is selected by rotating the Magnification Dial (C), aligning the white indicator marking with the number on the riflescope housing. Some models are equipped with a 2-position repositionable magnification lever. This lever is threaded in and can be moved to the other position by removing the filler screw with the supplied 3mm Allen key, tighten lever into place, and reinstall filler screw in vacant screw hole.

SIDE PARALLAX ADJUSTMENT (IF EQUIPPED)

Parallax is the perceptible movement of the reticle on the target as the shooter moves their head up and down, or side to side. Parallax adjustment can improve accuracy. Adjustment is recommended at all distances to improve accuracy.
Checking parallax is done by slightly lifting your head off of the stock and moving your head left and right and up and down while looking though the scope. Does the reticle appear to move while it is placed on the target? If so, rotate the side Parallax Adjustment knob until parallax or reticle movement is minimized. There are yardage indicators on the Parallax Adjustment knob that serve as approximations. For example, if
target is 300 yards away, rotate Parallax Adjustment to the 300 mark and make fine tuning adjustments by viewing through scope.

You may notice your Field of View (FOV) is more focused when making parallax adjustment. The key point is to make sure the reticle is not moving instead of concentrating on how sharp your image is. If your reticle parallax is correct your target should be sharp and in focus.

ALASKA-TO-AFRICA TEMPERATURE TESTED    To ensure each family of riflescopes is ready for whatever our users put them through, we perform “Alaska to Africa” temperature shock tests with temps from -20°F to 140°F.

IMMERSION TESTED
Each model is immersion tested, and every riflescope is dry-nitrogen filled to eliminate internal fogging.

SOLID ZERO TESTED
Every model is subjected to 5,000 consecutive rounds, confirming no reticle shift has occurred.

SHOCK & VIBRATION TESTED
All models are tested to withstand recoil and vibrational stresses without malfunction, so it can take a beating before, during and after use.

 

DROP TESTED
We don’t believe every drop should be followed by a warranty claim, so we drop test each riflescope design to check durability.

 

 

 

 

Maintenance

This Trijicon® product requires very little maintenance. If the lenses become dirty, wash using fresh water and a soft clean cloth. Remove all foreign matter from the lens surface fully before wiping them with a soft cloth. The outside lenses may fog over in cold weather. Remove fog by using a dry, clean soft cloth. Anti-fog solutions can be applied if desired.
