How to use your Red Dot Sight

CAUTION:BE SURE THAT YOUR FIREARM IS NOT LOARDED.PRACTICE SAFE FIREARM HANDLING PROCEDURES AT ALL TIMES.

MOUNTING YOUR RED DOT SIGHT
Units without integrated Rails:
If during installation of the red dot sight onto a rifle or shotgun the rings are too far apart to fit the basic scope,remove the trim ring and the screw the extension tube onto the exposed thread at the front of the scope.
Some red dot sights come equipped with a protective plastic shield,which is designed for special application automatics,If your firearm is not of this type,remove the rubber eye guard from the end of the ocular tube,slip off the protective shield,and replace rubber eye guard.
As there is no set eye relief for the red dot sights,allow a minimum of three inches of space between the eyeball and the shooter’s eye when in the shooting position.
Install the included rings onto the base or based by aligning and seating in the crossbolt of the ring into the crosscut grooves of the base.Tighten each crossbolt lock-nut with a screwdriver or coin.
Separate the upper and lower halves of each ring using the included hex wrench to remove the two screws.
Place the scope in the cradle formed by the lower ring halves.Replace upper ring halves and partially tighten screws.
Rotate the scope in the rings so that the elevation adjustment is on top.
Some models have the rheostat located on the top of the scope.To eliminate scope contact with ejected casings,these scopes can be rotated to position the rheostat and elevation adjustment on the side(and the windage adjustment is on top)
Note:in this case the “UP” indicator will now be the “R” or right indicator,and the “R” will become the “UP” indicator.
Units With Integrated Rail:
Set the rail onto the base or based.Align and seat the crossbolt of the ring into the crosscut grooves of the base.Tighten each crossbolt lock-nut with a screwdriver or coin.
Note:For additional security,additional drop of thread-locking compound to the center of each lock-nut.

INSTALLING BATTERIES
CAUTION:BE SURE THAT YOUR FIREARM IS NOT LOARDED.PRACTICE SAFE FIREARM HANDLING PROCEDURES AT ALL TIMES.
Red do sights are powered by 3v “coin style” lithium batteries,type 2032.To install batteries,unscrew the battery compartment and insert the battery positive(”+”) side up.Replace the battery cover.If the reticle dims or does not light at all,replace the batteries
ZERONING
CAUTION:ALL DISCHARGING OF FIREARMS SHOULD BE DONE AT AN APPROVED RANGE OR EQUALLY SAFE AREA.USE OF EYE AND EAR PROECTION IS RECOMMENDED.
Activate the illuminated reticle by turning the rheostat knob clockwise to brighten and counterclockwise to dim.The lower numbers represent dimmer settings and the higher number represent brighter settings of illumination.The “0” position indicated that the unit is off.
Remove the windage and elevation adjust screw caps.
With the scope mounted,rest the gun as a solid support.Sight along the barrel and aim at a target 50 to 100 yards away.Sight through your red dot sight and use the windage and elevation adjustments,to align the lighted reticle with the target as seen along the barrel.
Note:Each click of adjustment changes bullet strike at a shooting distance of 100yards by the amount indicated on the windage and elevation screw dial plates.To calculate the click value at distances other than 100 yards,using the following formula:divide the distance(number or yards)by 100.The resulting number,when multiplied by the click value stated on the windage and elevation dial plates,will yield the actual click value of the scope at shooting distance.
Distance/100=N
N*stated click value= actual click value
