EYEPIECE FOCUSING

The eyepiece is designed to provide a precise fast focus at certain eye relief. The eyepiece will focus faster than your eye can compensate for any inaccuracy in your adjustment. Set the scope parallax to infinity (if adjustable). Turn back out of the focus ring until the retile is completely fuzzy. Look through the scope a plain background. Turn the eyepiece focus ring until the reticle itself is maximum sharp clear. Having made your adjustment, re-check it quickly.

MOUNTING

The scope is installed on the gun by means of integrated 21mm picatinny mount. For safety reasons, allow at least 3 inches of clearance between the scope and your eyes when shooting. Move scope forward or backward to acquire the proper eye relief. Place the scope on the picatinny rail. Tighten all mounting screws to fix the scope firmly on the rifle.

DO NOT over-tighten the mount, or it may damage your scope. Max 30 in/lbs (2.5 ft / lbs, or 3.4 Nm) for mount base screws.

ZEROING

The scope features adjustable audible-click elevation and windage adjustments. Referring to the point of impact you will need to adjust both windage and elevationturrets. Elevation is the vertical (up-and-down) adjustment, usually on the top of the scope. Windage is the horizontal (left-to-right) adjustment, usually on the right of the scope. The scope feature 1 MOA windage & elevation adjustment with audible clicks, meaning that 1 click moves the point of impact = 1 inch at 100 yards. With the scope mounted, rest the firearm onto a solid support and aim at a target 100 yards away. Slowly shoot a small 3 to 5 round test group onto your target. Adjust windage & elevation screws in the direction you want to move the bullet impact. Should your impacts be below your point of aim, dial UP to reach zero. Should your impacts be left to your point of aim, dial R(right) to reach zero. Each click of adjustment moves the point of impact. Shoot another 3 to 5 round test group. Repeat until you are satisfied with the point of aim.

TURNING ON & ILLUMINATION ADJUSTMENT

The scope is activated by using the digital on/off switch placed on the top of the scope. The scope has 10 intensity levels red. Press and hold the "+" switch for 1 second to turn the unit on. Subsequently pressing the "+" switch will increase the dot intensity. Pressing the "-" switch will decrease the dot intensity. Press and hold the "-" switch for more than 3 seconds to turn the scope off.

BATTERY EXCHANGE

Your scope illumination is powered by 1 piece of CR2032 lithium button battery. To insert, remove or replace the battery: Release the battery compartment cover. Remove the used battery from the battery compartment. Insert a new one from a reputable manufacturer with the positive (+) side UP. Screw on the battery compartment cover.

Caution: Should the illumination grows dim or not turn on, you will need to exchange the battery.

SEALED, WATERPROOF AND FOGPROOF

The scope is nitrogen-purged to remove any vestige of internal moisture, also has an O-ring to prevent the entry of dust or moisture.

MAINTENANCE

Your scope, though amazingly tough, is a precision instrument that deserves reasonable cautious care.

  • When cleaning the lens, first blow away any dirt and dust, or use a soft lens brush. Fingerprints and lubricants can be wiped off with lens tissue, or soft clean cotton cloth, moistened with lens cleaning fluid.
  • All moving parts of the scope are permanently lubricated. Do not try to lubricate them.
  • No maintenance is needed on the scope’s exterior surface, except to occasionally wipe off dirt or fingerprints with a soft cloth.
  • Use lens covers whenever convenient.

STORAGE

Avoid storing the scope in hot places, such as the passenger compartments of vehicles on hot days. The high temperatures could adversely affect the lubricants and sealants. A vehicle’s trunk, a gun cabinet, or a closet is preferable. Never leave the scope where direct sunlight can enter either the objective lens. Damage may result from the concentration (burning glass effect) of the sun’s rays.
