CHAPTER 1: GENERAL DESCRIPTION & SPECIFICATIONS
WARNING: Clear and safe the weapon prior to mounting the sight!
1.1 Description
The SpecterDR Optical Sight is unique in providing the shooter with two fields-of-view. The first
is a 1.5x powered sight with a 16° field-of-view. 1.5x magnification together with a red dot
illuminated aiming point provides the shooter with an extremely fast, “both eyes open” target
acquisition. The second is a 6x-magnified sight with a field–of-view of 4° and a rangecompensating reticle. This magnification provides the shooter with long-range target
identification and precision marksmanship capability. These two different fields-of-view are
easily and quickly interchanged using a lever mounted on the side of the optical housing.
The SpecterDR provides four ways of targeting for maximum flexibility:
1

“CQB” – 1.5x magnification with a 6 MOA illuminated red dot.

“Long Range Red Dot” – 6x magnification with a 1.5 MOA illuminated red dot.

“Long Range Crosshair” – 6x magnification with an illuminated, ballisticallycompensated reticle.

“Rain Sight” – Close range rain sight for heavy rain and emergency situations.

1.1 Description (continued)
A red LED is used to illuminate the reticle. When turned in the counter-clockwise direction, the
reticle illumination switch provides five illumination levels of a “red dot” aiming mark. The red
dot attracts the eye to the precise point of aim and bullet impact. By rotating the switch in the
clockwise direction, five levels of illumination for the whole reticle allows dawn to dusk and
night shooting of the sight
‘Throw Levers’ attach the sight to the MIL-STD 1913 rail. This lever system provides accurate
zero retention when the sight is repeatedly removed and replaced on the rail.
The sight can be fitted with an accessory mount that fits on top of the housing to accommodate
a ’mini red dot sight’. An anti-reflection device (ARD) and a laser protection filter are also
available as options.

1.3.1 1.5x - 6x Switch Lever
The 1.5x - 6x Switch Lever allows the marksman to quickly adjust magnification from
1.5x magnification to 6x magnification without re-zeroing or affecting eye relief.
1.3.2 Rain Sights
These sights are intended for use in heavy rain or in emergency defense situations. Rain
sights may be located on the SpecterDR in any of three positions. Typically, the center,
or 12 o’clock, position is used. Consisting of a 4mm diameter rear sight and a 2mm wide
front post sight, the front post is adjustable for left and right (azimuth/windage) zeroing.
Moving the post to the right moves the point of impact (POI) to the left. The elevation is
fixed to provide a zero at a close shooting range of 35 meters (114 feet).
1.3.3 Mount Attachment ’Throw Levers’
The throw levers are used to secure the sight to the weapon’s MIL-STD 1913 “Picatinny”
rail. The SpecterDR uses two low profile locking levers that point to the rear when
attached. Additional tie/wire wrap points are provided as an additional means to lock the
levers in place.
1.3.4 Elevation Dial and Lock
The elevation zero dial is located at the lower rear of the mount, and the zero lock (silver
tab) is just above the dial. When the lock is in the UP position, the dial may be used to
adjust the elevation of the Point of Impact (POI) ½ Minute of Angle (MOA) per click. If the
zero lock is DOWN, the zero dial is locked in place and the sight elevation is fixed.
CAUTION: To prevent damage, be sure that the lock is fully disengaged before
attempting to turn the elevation dial!

1.3.5 Azimuth/Windage Adjustment Screw
The azimuth/windage adjustment screw is located at the front left side of the mount.
Rotating it adjusts the Point of Impact (POI) to the right or left. Each ‘click’ moves the point
of impact ½ MOA (approximately ½” (12.7mm) at 100 yards (91m)).
1.3.6 Reticle Illumination Switch
Rotating this knob illuminates the reticle at varying levels of brightness. Reference marks
on the housing indicate the operating positions of the switch. The first two settings from
OFF, each way, are night vision equipment compatible.


Counter Clockwise rotation - illuminates the Red Dot with 5 intensity levels.
Clockwise rotation - illuminates the ballistic reticle with 5 intensity levels.
1.3.7 Battery Cap and Lanyard
Located on the Reticle Illumination Switch, the battery cap may be removed by hand by
unscrewing it in the counter clockwise direction. A lanyard attaches it to the sight housing
and prevents loss when changing the battery. A battery cap should only be tightened until
snug.

1.3.8 Mini Red Dot
A Mini Red Dot sight with a matching mounting pattern can be mounted to the optional
MRD Mount on top of the SpecterDR.
1.3.9 Laser Protection Filter and Anti-Reflection Device (ARD)
An optional Laser protection filter can be attached at the objective or front of the sight by
rotating the filter in a clockwise direction until it is finger tight. It is removed by rotating it in
a counter clockwise direction.
An optional ARD can be mounted on the sight in the same manner as the laser protection
filter and can be fitted without using the filter.
WARNING


11
The laser protective filter protects your eyes from being burned by battlefield lasers,
but also greatly diminishes the performance of the optic. When facing enemies who
use battlefield lasers, failure to utilize the laser filter could result in the loss of
your eyesight from enemy laser beams!
The ARD cuts down on reflection from the lens caused by the sun or other sources of
ambient light. Failure to utilize the ARD or take other tactical measures to hide
your lens reflection in bright daylight could reveal your position.

1.
Ensure the weapon is clear, on safe and pointed in a safe direction while mounting the
sight.
2.
Ensure sight is secured tightly to the weapon prior to conducting live fire.
3.
To avoid injury, ensure that the eye relief has been adjusted to provide a safe distance
between your eye and the rear of the sight.
4.
Proper zeroing techniques must always be taken prior to using the sight.

CHAPTER 2: PREPARATION FOR USE & INSTALLATION
2.1 Mounting Sight to the Weapon/Eye Relief
Installing the optical sight onto the weapon involves the following steps:

Ensure that the sight is in 6x magnification mode (see Section 2.3).

Loosen the mount throw levers by rotating them out at 90° to the sight and place the
sight on top of the MIL-STD 1913 rail.

2.1 Mounting Sight to the Weapon/Eye Relief (continued)

‘Cheek’ the weapon in the normal firing position.
Slide the sight along the rail until the correct eye relief is achieved for the user’s
natural head position and a full field of view is visible through the sight. Approximate
eye relief is 70mm (2.75”). The field of view tunnel effect should be minimized when
the eye relief is adjusted properly, producing a circular and sharp image (see Figure
2-2). Note the position of the sight on the rail.

2.1 Mounting Sight to the Weapon/Eye Relief (continued)

Mount the sight on the rail at the rail slot which is the closest match with the mount
slot bar. Apply forward pressure to the sight and rotate the throw levers towards the
back of the sight until they are parallel to the sight body.

Cheek the weapon at the normal firing position. Verify that the sight is
approximately 70mm (2.75”) in front of the eye and that a full target picture is
observed through the sight.

For extra mounting security, the mount provides slots to accommodate plastic or
wire tie wraps so that the levers can be locked into their closed position.

Mark the sight’s position on the weapon to be used as a future reference point.
2.2 Zeroing
Zeroing the SpecterDR aligns point of aim (center of the reticles’ crosshairs) with the point of
impact (POI) of the weapon.
NOTE: Zeroing should be conducted at the highest magnification as
well as the longest range for the given conditions.
15
OPM 008 REV A
Copyright © 2011 Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies
2.2 Zeroing (continued)
Controls
 Azimuth or windage zeroing uses the azimuth adjustment dial at the front of the mount.
Rotate the azimuth zero dial clockwise to move the point of impact to the left; or counterclockwise to move the impact to the right. Each click of the azimuth dial moves the point
of impact by ½ Minute of Angle (MOA) (approximately ½” (12.7mm) at 100 yards (91m)).
Using a common item such as a flat-head screwdriver, dog tag, cartridge case or coin, rotate
the azimuth dial.

Elevation zeroing uses the elevation dial at the bottom rear of the mount. Unlock the
zeroing lock (silver tab) by raising it up as far as it will go. Be sure that the lock pin at
the bottom of the zeroing lock is fully disengaged from the elevation dial. Adjust
the elevation dial as required. Each click of the elevation dial moves the point of impact
by ½ MOA (approximately ½” (12.7mm) at 100 yards (91m). When elevation adjustment
is completed, lower the zeroing lock (silver tab) fully to lock the elevation zero in place.
Be sure that the lock pin at the bottom of the zeroing lock is fully engaged into the
elevation dial.
A mechanical zero of the sight is recommended so that the optical axis is in rough alignment
with the bore axis of the weapon. This will make zeroing easier to accomplish.
To achieve a mechanical zero of the sight, adjust the azimuth dial until the gaps between
the mount base and the front fork of the optical housing are equal. Adjust the elevation dial
by raising the silver lock and turning the dial until the sight body is parallel to the rail. (See
Figure 2-3).
16
OPM 008 REV A
Copyright © 2011 Raytheon ELCAN Optical Technologies
2.2 Zeroing (continued)
In addition to setting the sight to its mechanical zero, it is also recommended that the
weapon is bore sighted prior to going on the zeroing range. When done correctly, this can
save a lot of time and ammunition. Follow the steps below to acquire a good bore sight.
1. Place the weapon on a stable platform that does not allow for any movement (bench
rest, cradle, rucksack).
2. Get behind the weapon and along the barrel axis.
3. Choose an identifiable object down range (preferably at about the same range that you
will be zeroing at).
4. If possible, look through the barrel and center the object in the bore circle. Otherwise,
look parallel to the bore axis and align the weapon with an identifiable object.
5. Look through the optic and locate the identifiable object.
6. Adjust the windage and elevation until the crosshairs are on the object.
7. As necessary, perform safety checks, assemble weapon, follow range procedures and
then commence zeroing (first shot should be on paper).

2.2 Zeroing (continued)
Zeroing must be performed at the highest magnification (6x). The recommended distance is at
100 meters! However, a 25 meter zero will enable fall of shot to be registered on a target. It is
recommended that the marksman fires three to five round groups and make adjustments
based upon the geometric center of those groups.
1. Look through the sight with proper eye relief and align the aiming point of the center dot
onto the center of the target.
2. Fire three to five aimed individual
rounds (Figure 2-4).

4. Measure the amount of movement required left or right (Azimuth or windage) to move the
center of the POI group onto the aimpoint in mm or inches (Figure 2-6).
5. To adjust azimuth/windage, each click of the azimuth/windage dial moves the POI by ½
MOA (approximately ½” (12.7mm) at 100 yards (91m)). Direction of POI change is
labelled on the housing next to the Azimuth Adjustment Dial. Table 2.1 is provided to

To adjust elevation:

Push the elevation zero lock (silver tab) up to disengage.

When viewing the sight from the rear, rotate the elevation dial Right to Raise - UP
the POI or Left to Lower - Down the POI. Direction of POI change is labelled on the
sight.
Caution: To prevent damage, be sure that the lock is fully disengaged
before attempting to turn the elevation dial!

When elevation adjustment is completed, lower the zero lock fully to lock the
elevation zero in place. Be sure that the lock pin at the bottom of the zero lock is
fully engaged into the elevation dial.
It is important to ensure that the zero lock is pushed back down
to lock the elevation zero dial when zeroing is completed!

CHAPTER 3: PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
3.1 FOV
The SpecterDR Optical Sight is unique in providing the shooter with two fields-of-view:
1.
The first is a 1.5x powered sight with a 16° field-of-view. 1.5x magnification together with
a red dot illuminated aiming point provides the shooter with an extremely fast, “both eyes
open” target acquisition.
2.
The second is a 6x-magnified sight with a field–of-view of 4° and a range-compensating
reticle. This magnification provides the shooter with long-range target identification and
precision marksmanship capability.
To change magnification, flip the 1.5x - 6x Switch Lever slightly downward and forward for 6x
magnification or slightly downward and rearward for 1.5x magnification. Sight ‘zero’ and eye
relief are not affected.

3.2 Reticle and Ranging (continued)
Describing the sample reticle pattern, the main horizontal line provides a reference to the
marksman and coincides with the 100 meter aiming point at both 1.5x and 6x. The reticle
pattern is designed to be zeroed at 100 meters using the 6x setting.
A red dot aiming point is placed at the reticle crosshair center and is designed for use at either
the 1.5x or 6x optical magnification settings. The red dot is 1.5 MOA at 6x magnification or 6
MOA at 1.5x magnification.
When using the 6x magnification, the ballistic drop reticle provides calibrated drop increments
of 100 meters. The 400 and 600 meter stadia lines are labelled. At the 200, 300, 400, 500 and
600m ranges, the width of the stadia line represents a 19” wide target (the approximate width
of a man’s chest). The calibre of the weapon (5.56mm or 7.62mm) is indicated on the reticle
as well as the sight.
Note: The ballistic drop reticle is calibrated for 6x use. Do not use the
reticle for ranging at 1.5x magnification.
3.2.1 Reticle Illumination
The SpecterDR provides illumination for two types of reticles (see Figure 3-3):
 A red dot at the center of the crosshairs; and
 A Range Estimating and Bullet Drop Compensation Reticle.
Each reticle has multiple brightness settings which can be set by the Reticle Illumination
Switch (rotary) on the left side of the sight (see Figure 3-4):
 Counter Clockwise rotation - illuminates the Red Dot with 5 intensity levels.
 Clockwise rotation - illuminates the ballistic reticle with 5 intensity levels.
The first two settings from OFF, each way, are night vision equipment compatible.

WARNING
The SpecterDR is designed to give the marksman maximum control of reticle illumination.
However, at the higher illumination settings, reddish light shines forward from the sight.
These higher illumination settings are for use in bright daylight.
Failure to use the lower reticle illumination settings at night, or failure to take other tactical
measures to hide your forward light emissions during darkness, could reveal your position.

CHAPTER 4: MAINTENANCE
The SpecterDR is designed for ruggedness and minimal maintenance. The
following sections describe recommended maintenance procedures.
4.1 Preventative Maintenance
Prior to use in the field and every week of use, the following routine maintenance is
recommended:
30

Inspect the sight for missing or damaged parts.

Inspect the sight for visual obstruction of target image, dust, dirt, pits or moisture on
optical surfaces, loose or broken optical elements. If these conditions cannot be
corrected by cleaning (see Section 4.3), the sight is unsuitable for use.

Check battery cap - Ensure that the cap is present. Inspect the threads on the
battery housing and battery cap for damage, dirt or moisture. Ensure that the rubber
washer is present, free of damage and seated properly. An absent or improperly
seated battery cap could lead to a loss of power or shorten battery life.

Check the reticle - if the reticle does not illuminate, try replacing the battery.

