WHEN BRIGHTNESS COUNTS ™
CAUTION: BEFORE YOU BEGIN, ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE FIREARM / CROSSBOW
IS UN-LOADED / UN-COCKED AND IS SAFE TO HANDLE.
ON / OFF / BRIGHTNESS
Rotate the power adjustment knob and select the lowest brightness setting that still provides
good contrast against the target. The higher brightness settings should only be used in bright
daylight (otherwise, the reticle may appear distorted).

BATTERY
Your sight includes a 3-volt lithium battery (CR2032). To replace the battery, rotate the
battery cover counter-clockwise and remove. Insert the replacement battery with “+” side
facing out. Replace the cover and hand-tighten.

MOUNTING
Your sight has integrated mounting rails that attach to a standard Weaver-style base or
Picatinny rail. If your firearm or crossbow has a smaller 3/8” mounting base, a TRUGLO
mounting adaptor can be purchased (visit www.truglo.com).
Loosen both mounting screws and set the sight onto the mounting base of the firearm or
crossbow. Please note that one mounting screw is lower than the other mounting screw.
Only the lower mounting screw should fit into one of the grooves in the top of the mounting
base. Be sure the sight is fully seated on the mounting base before tightening the mounting
screws. To ensure tightening, alternate between screws after each half turn. (DO NOT OVER
TIGHTEN MOUNTING HARDWARE. MAX. TORQUE 20 INCH LBS.) For additional security, a
drop of thread-locker can be added to the mounting screws.

PARALLAX
Your sight has been carefully set to have a minimum parallax at 50 yards (30 yards for
crossbow models). At distances significantly greater or less than this distance, some parallax
will be observed. To reduce the possibility of a Point if Impact (POI) shift caused by parallax,
the reticle should be kept in the middle 2/3 of the field of view when aiming.
MIRROR ANGLE
The mirror-lens can be easily seen when looking through the wrong end of the sight. The tilt
of the mirror-lens is not a defect. It is tilted to reflect the LED’s light back to the user’s eye.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Occasionally clean the lenses with a soft cloth. Always make sure the mounting screws are
tight before making windage or elevations adjustments. There are no user serviceable parts
inside the sight – any disassembly of the sight will void the warranty.

ZEROING (Initial Setup)
Please note that the reticle has been pre-set at the factory to be aligned with the mounting
base of the sight. Only minor windage and elevation adjustments should be required. If
significant adjustments are necessary, please make sure the sight is properly mounted. (This
is not a defect with the sight.) Adjustable mounting base may be required for certain firearms
and crossbows.
CAUTION: ALWAYS USE EYE AND EAR PROTECTION. SHOOT ONLY AT AN APPROVED
SHOOTING RANGE OR A SUITABLE SAFE AREA.
If possible, a bore sighting device should be used for rough alignment of the sight to the
firearm or crossbow. If bore sighting is not possible, place the firearm or crossbow on a sturdy
rest and look through the barrel or along the rail at a small target about 50 yards away.
Remove the elevation and windage protective caps and adjust the windage and elevation
screws until the position of the reticle corresponds to the target when viewed through the
barrel or along the rail.
One click of elevation or windage moves the Point of Impact (POI) approximately one MOA
(1” at a distance of 100 yards, or 3/4” at 75 yards, or 1/2” inch at 50 yards, etc.). The arrows
near the adjustment screws indicate the direction of change for the POI (turning the windage
screw in the direction marked “R” moves the POI to the right; turning elevation screw in the
direction marked “UP” moves the POI up).
ZEROING (Final Setup – Live Firing)
After carefully firing three shots at the target, make any necessary adjustments to the
windage and elevation adjustment screws.

RETICLE (Multi-Reticle Models)
The four reticle patterns illustrated below can be chosen by moving the reticle selection
switch.
Always select the lowest brightness setting that still provides good contrast against the
target. The higher brightness settings should only be used in bright daylight (otherwise, the
reticle may appear distorted).
Knowing that one MOA is about 1” at a distance of 100 yards (or 3/4” at 75 yards, 1/2” inch
at 50 yards, etc.), these reticles can also be used to estimate the distance to a target or even
the pattern of a shotgun at a given distance. Choose the reticle that best suits the application,
and then test at various distances to achieve the best results.

The above yardages are only approximate (factors include bolt/arrow weight, poundage,

RETICLE (Standard Models)
Your sight uses a 5 MOA reticle pattern.

RETICLE (Crossbow Models)
The reticle pattern corresponds to the following approximate yardages using a 400 grain
bolt/arrow at 300 feet per second.

FLIP-UP LENS CAPS
Some models may also include flip-up lens caps. These lens caps are intended to protect the
optical glass from inclement weather and dust. While impervious to many chemicals, care
should be taken to avoid contact with powerful solvents and chemicals.
Always select the lowest brightness setting that
still provides good contrast against the target.
The higher brightness settings should only be
used in bright daylight (otherwise, the reticle
may appear distorted).
