First, turn both the elevation and windage knobs all the way clockwise, without forcing any clicks. Stop turning the turret when you feel light resistance on the knob.

WARNING: TURNING PAST THE POINT OF RESISTANCE WILL CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR SCOPE

Next, turn back counterclockwise ½ the amount of total adjustment for your scope for both the windage and elevation turrets. Refer to the following chart for how many clicks to turn the turrets to get back to optical center.

Also, when resetting the turrets to optical center, be sure to loosen any set screws for scopes that have zero lock. Otherwise, the zero locking turret will limit your travel to 1 turn.

There are several factors that could affect the point of impact of the scope. First, check to ensure that the mounts/rings are securely affixed to the picatinny rail. There should be no movement of the scope when it is tightened down

Sometimes, if a riflescope has been zeroed on multiple firearms, the internal erector unit may be pushed out of center. This could limit the amount of adjustment or cause the internal adjustment travel to move diagonally if the erector unit is pushed to its outer limits. Try to reset the scope to optical center.

If that does not resolve problem, contact us at (888)445-8912 for a return authorization.

Phenom FFP Series:

Any 34mm rings that are at least 1.15” in height

This scope was designed for long distance tactical shooting such as the Precision Rifle Series (PRS) Match. For best results, we recommend using a rifle capable of shooting past 500m, such as an AR10 or bolt rifle in 308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, 300 Win Mag, 338 Lapua Magnum, 30 calibers, etc.

The hash marks on the reticle can be used by the shooter for wind holds, tracing shots, or rangefinding. This reticle was designed for “slow shooting” at a stationary target 1000 yds+ away.

PentaLux TAC-V SFP Series

Any 30mm rings that are at least 1” in height.

This scope was designed for mid to long distance hunting and target shooting. The 2-10X and 4-20X can be used as a DMR scope on AR15 or AR10 platforms.

The reticle is accurate at 10X for both the 2-10X and 4-20X

To use the ranging scale, you need to first know the actual size of your target. If the known size is in meters, use the meter scale. If your known sized target is in yards, use the yards scale. Simply, overlay the target on the scale and adjust the magnification ring until that target’s known size matches the size it reads on the scale. Read the second set of numbers on the magnification ring to determine the approximate distance to the target.

PentaLux TAC-VF FFP Series

Any 30mm rings that are at least 1” in height.

This scope can be mounted on any AR10 or Bolt action rifle. This can be mounted on an AR-15, how it may be too much magnification for close to medium distance shooting (< 300 yds)

The reticle is accurate at every power. This is especially useful when tracking moving game or engaging targets at unknown distances.

Uni-Dial Series

The UD2510X44 requires 1” rings that are at least 0.9” high
The UD416X50MD and UD416X50MLR requires 30mm rings that are at least 1” tall.
The UD530X56 requires 34mm rings that are at least 1.1” tall.

This scope was designed for mid to long distance hunting and target shooting. The Uni-Dial ballistic turret’s advantage lies in its speed when you are shooting at known distances. Simply turn the dial to the respective marker for your distance.

First, determine your trajectory data by using a ballistic calculator or your DOPE. Next, loosen the 2 set screws on the turret. Set the flags to the corresponding drop data returned by your ballistic calculator or your DOPE. Once the flags are set, you can zero the scope, reindex the turrets and lock down the set screws. Be sure to remember or write down which distance each flag corresponds to.

The UD530X56 has a tool-less programmable ballistic turret. Simply loosen the locking screw on the turret. Then you can adjust the 6 markers to quickly refer to 6 distances down range.

The reticle is accurate at 10X for both the 2.5-10X and 4-16X. The reticle is accurate at 20X for the UD530X56.

If you know the distance of your target, you can simply turn the elevation dial to the respective marker/flag on the turret and hold dead center on the crosshairs. No counting clicks, holdovers, or mental math necessary.

Automatic Ranging Trajectory (ART)

You do not need to use any rings to mount this scope. The M1000 and M1200 come with an integrated mount and rings.

The ranging capacity of the M1000 is 250m – 1000m.

First, you need to determine your rifle’s ballistic data using the suggested zero range. The M1000 needs to be zeroed at 250m. The M1200 needs to be zeroed at 300m in order for the auto ranging trajectory functionality to work properly.

You can zero your ART scope at a 100 yard range using the appropriate combat zero.

There is a trajectory chart in the ART scope manual for both the M1000 and M1200 that shows how much MOA that the base will correct on each CAM setting.

Using a ballistic calculator such as JBMBallistics (www.jbmballistics.com), Strelok, or any other reputable calculator, determine your rifle setups MOA trajectory/ballistic info out to 1000m for the M1000 and out to 1200m for the M1200.

Next, compare the output of the ballistic calculator to the chart in the ART scope manual to determine an initial CAM setting.

There is no one perfect CAM setting that can achieve sub MOA groups at all distances in the ranging capacity. The ART system was designed to place a hit in the center of mass on the target.

If you feel like the CAM setting is slightly off for the distance you are shooting at, use the following suggestion to calibrate the setting. If you are shooting HIGH, adjust the CAM Setting 10-20 HIGHER. If you are shooting LOW, adjust the CAM setting 10-20 settings LOWER.

We recommend saving the internal adjustment for elevation. If you need to correct windage, you can use the built in windage adjustment on the base.

For instructions on adjusting external windage on the M1000, refer to page 8 of the ART M1000 manual.

For instructions on adjusting external windage on the M1200, refer to pages 7-8 of the ART M1200 manual.

The beauty of the ART system lies in its ability to quickly place shots on known sized targets at unknown distances. As long as your target is within the ranging capacity of the ART scope, you can simply frame a 1/2m target within the center bracket on the M1000 or the open space in the M1200 reticle.

In automatic mode, adjust the CAM unit until the target fits within the bracket or the open space in the reticle. Once the target is framed, you can pull the trigger. No holdovers or counting clicks required!

Top Angle Series

Any 30mm rings that are at least 1” in height.

This scope has a uniquely positioned parallax turret at 45 degrees left from the vertical. This ambidextrous setup is especially handy for left handed shooters.

This MD and MLR versions of this scope are intended for mid to long distance hunting and target shooting applications. The 7-30X50MOA top angle scope is designed with the benchrest shooter in mind.

The reticle is accurate at 10X for both the 3-12X and 4-16X. The reticle is accurate at 28X for the 7-30X.

Close to Medium Range Series

The CMR 1-4X can use any 30mm rings that are at least 0.5” tall.
The CMR8 1-8X requires any 34mm rings that are at least 0.6” tall.

The CMR series is designated for close quarters to medium distance shooting up to 500m, such as competitive 3Gun. This scope works well with the AR10 and AR15 platform.

The reticle is accurate at 4X for the CMR-AK762 and CMR4.
The CMR8 reticle is accurate at every power because it is in the first focal plane.

There are 2 reticle options for the CMR1-4 at this time. There is a 62grain 5.56 BDC (CMR4) and a 7.62x39r BDC (CMR-AK762). The CMR-AK762 will also work for the 300 Blackout supersonic out to 300m.

30MM Professional Series

Any 30mm rings that are at least 0.8” tall.

This scope was designed for hunting and target shooting. This scope excels at shooting distances from 300yards and in. However, you can extend the range of the scope by using the Mil-Dots for holdover. This will work on any standard hunting rifle, bolt action rifle or AR.

The reticle is accurate at 10X for both the 2.5-10X and 6X for the 1.5-6X.

Multi-Dial Series

Any 30mm rings that are at least 0.8” tall.

This scope was designed for hunting and target shooting. This scope excels at shooting distances from 300yards and in. However, you can extend the range of the scope by using the Mil-Dots for holdover. This will work on any standard hunting rifle, bolt action rifle or AR.

The reticle is accurate at 9X.

First zero the rifle scope. Next, loosen the set screws and re-index the scope to your zero. There are 4 rings on the elevation turret that you can hand adjust to quickly reference different distances down range. You will need to know the trajectory of your bullet with your setup.

Buck Country Series

Any 1” rings that are at least 0.8” tall.

This scope was designed for hunting and target shooting. This scope excels at shooting distances from 300 yards and closer. This will work on any standard hunting rifle, bolt action rifle or AR.

The reticle is accurate at 9X for the TBML 3-9X40 BDC models. The center crosshair can be used at all powers.

Long Eye Relief Series

Any 1” rings that are at least 0.6” tall.

This scope will only work with a scout rifle, where the scope is forward mounted in front of the action. Some rifles that fit this configuration are the Ruger Gunsite Scout, Springfield M1A scout squad. In order to see the full field of view, your eye relief on this scope needs to be 9-11.”

The BDC reticle is accurate at 7X. However, the center crosshair can be used to aim at any power.

If you can come up with a mounting solution with enough eye relief, then you can use this scope on a pistol. However, this is not the intended application for the scope.

M40 Series

Any 1” rings that are at least 0.8” tall.

This scope was designed for hunting and target shooting. This scope excels at shooting distances from up to 600 yards. This will work on any standard hunting rifle, bolt action rifle or AR.

The reticle is accurate at 9X.

There are two ways that you can range:

USMC Green scope & TACHUNTER: Using the two parallel lines in the top half of the reticle, you can frame a 18” vertical target. As long as the target is within the ranging capacity of 200-600yds, you can use the ranging scale at the lower right to determine the approximate range.

TACHUNTER ONLY: There are also 2 hash marks on the horizontal stadia line that you can use to frame a known target of 1 yard in width. Adjust the magnification ring until that target fits between the 2 hash marks on the horizontal stadia line. The Ranging scale will return the approximate range of the 1yard target.

MM-2 Red Dot

Absolute Cowitness is when the red dot and the iron sights are lined up at the center of the reticle. Lower 1/3 Cowitness is when the iron sights cowitness in the lower 1/3 of the sight picture. For Lower 1/3 cowitness, when looking through the red dot, the dot will appear in the center of the sight. However, when you look through the iron sights, the red dot will appear to align with the irons. This is due to the parallax free nature of the MM-2 red dot.

The MM-2 red dot is recommended for any AR, AK, shotgun or pistol.

The red dot measures 2MOA.

At this time, we only offer a 2MOA red dot in the MM-2.

Hold the + button to enter programming mode. The red dot will blink once for every hour of the auto shutoff timer. Press “-“ button to reduce the auto shutoff timer by 1 hour. You can set the auto shutoff from 0 hours (always on) to 12 hours.
