Setting Your Diopter
CAUTION: LOOKING AT THE SUN
WITH THIS OR ANY OPTICAL INSTRUMENT COULD CAUSE PERMANENT INJURY
TO THE EYE.
1. All Sightron Fixed and Variable power
riflescopes are factory preset for zero (0) diopters
or 20/20 vision.
2. Certain models contain the Fast Focus
Eyebell (Figure 7) which allows the shooter to
adjust their diopter quickly by turning the diopter
adjustment located at the end of the eyebell. All

Eyebell Adjustment
other models contain
a Locking Ring Eyebell
that adjusts simply by
loosening the locking
ring located near the
magnification ring and
Figure 7
rotating the eyepiece.
3. To properly focus the reticle, simply
adjust the diopter (eyebell) while looking at a
light colored background or bright surface. Adjust
Locking Diopter
the diopter until the
reticle becomes sharp
and crisp. If prescription
glasses are worn during
this process, then you
must wear them at all
Figure 8
times while using the
riflescope.

Mounting Your Riflescope
CAUTION: ALWAYS INSURE THAT
YOUR WEAPON IS UNLOADED PRIOR TO
MOUNTING YOUR SCOPE. USE EYE AND
HEARING PROTECTION AND FOLLOW
PROPER SAFETY RULES WHEN HANDLING
OR FIRING YOUR WEAPON.
1. Place both rings on your mount base or
receiver, and tighten slightly, adjustment may
be needed. Remove the top half of the rings and
place the riflescope in the bottom half of the
rings. Once you have determined proper ring
spacing (see Fig. 9) and eye relief (see Fig. 10),
tighten the top half of the rings between 15-20
inch pounds or 169-225 Newton Centimeters.
2. To align the riflescope with the bore axis
of the gun, level the turrets or crosshairs by using
a scope level or a level chart.
Maintain gaps between tubes and scope parts
Make as far
as possible
Figure 9

Figure 10
3. The final step will now be to secure the
riflescope by tightening the rings to the mount or
receiver.
Fine Adjustment Sight Tuner (F.A.S.T.)
The Fine Adjustment Sight Tuner (F.A.S.T.)
located on the left side of the turret housing consists of two focusing knobs. F.A.S.T. Focus Knobs
The larger knob, known
as the Coarse Adjustment
knob allows the shooter to
focus over large distances
to bring the image into
focus. The smaller knob,
referred to as the Fine
Adjustment Knob allows
for the image to be focused
Figure 11
Fine
in small increments for
Coarse Focus Focus
precise image focusing. To
properly adjust the F.A.S.T. focus system, rotate
the focusing knob to the infinity (∞) mark and
adjust down till the image is in focus and parallax
free.
Note: Due to weather conditions, focusing
may not be able to be achieved at higher magnifications. If this problem should occur, simply
reduce the magnification used.
9
Parallax Focus Adjustment
Adjustable Objective
Parallax is the apparent displacement of an
object caused by a change in the position from
which it is viewed. For a riflescope to be parallax
free there has to be an equal balance between
the eye to the reticle and the image to the
reticle. Sightron Hunting models are set parallax
free at 100 yards except Rimfire models which are
set at 50 yards. This means targets that are closer
or farther from this focal point will show a small
apparent movement. The amount of reticle movement is generally less than 1 inch at 100 yards,
and is not a relative concern when using the scope
for hunting or causal shooting applications. For
other disciplines of this sport, like competition
or precision shooting, the use of a scope with
parallax adjustment is recommended.
The Parallax Adjustment is located on the
objective end of the riflescope and is designed
for precision shooting applications. The Adjustable Objective will allow parallax free viewing,
by correctly setting the Adjustable Objective
distance scale ring to the
desired setting. To properly adjust the Adjustable Objective, rotate the
objective to the infinity
Figure 12
(∞) mark on the scale
ring and adjust back till the image is in focus and
parallax free. Note: Models that offer a 720° Adjustable
Objective use the two color index markings
located on the main body tube and the objective
ring to obtain proper focusing.
Note: That the markings on the Adjustable
Objective will not always match up with the
actual viewing distance due to environmental
circumstances.

11
Side Focus Adjustment
Sighting in Your Gun
The Side Focus Adjustment is located on
the left side of the turret housing and allows the
shooter to conveniently adjust the parallax setting
for precision shooting applications. To properly
adjust the Side Focus Adjustment, rotate the focusing knob to the infin- Side Focus
ity (∞) mark and adjust
down till the image is in
focus and parallax free.
Note: Minimum
parallax distance varies
depending on model. Figure 13
Please refer to technical specifications for your
riflescope model.
Your new scope has been optically centered
at the factory and superior performance will
be obtained with minimal adjustment. Prior to
sighting in your scope it is important to know the
windage and elevation adjustment specifications of
your particular scope model. A general rule is the
more the magnification the less internal adjustment
is available. Specifications for Sightron’s scopes are
located in our annual catalog or on our website.
Sightron recommends not using more than 25% of
the available adjustment on Hunting models and
10% on Target models to zero your scope. If your
ring alignment exceeds these adjustment requirements it is recommended to correct the alignment
by using windage and elevation adjustable rings
before you begin to adjust your scope.
Note: For best performance optically and
mechanically keep the windage and elevation
travel centered to allow for maximum adjustment range for your model of riflescope.
Note: Most sight in problems are caused by
poor ring alignment.
Rear Focus Adjustment
The Rear Focus Adjustment is located in
front of the eyebell before the turret housing. To
properly adjust the Rear Rear Focus Adjustment
Focus Adjustment, rotate
the focusing knob to the
infinity (∞) mark and
adjust the knob down till
the image is in focus and
parallax free.

Sighting in Your Gun
1. Place a 2 to 3 foot target 50 to 100 yards away.
Using a bench rest, fire two shots while aiming at
the center of the bullseye.
2. Adjust the reticle to the bullets impact point by
using the turret adjustments or by using windage
and elevation adjustable rings.
3. Fire two more shots while aiming at the center
of the bullseye to confirm the adjustments made.
If bullet impact is different from point of aim, then
repeat steps 1-3 until point of aim is aligned with
the bore of the gun.

Re-Zeroing Your Scope
Certain Sightron riflescope models are
resettable to zero after sighting in your riflescope.
1. Models with Locking Turret.
To reset the Locking Allen Screw Locations
Do Not Remove Screw
Turret to zero, simply loosen the three 1.27mm Allen
Screws located around the
top lip of the turret knob.
Rotate the turret knob
to zero aligning with the
revolution counter under Figure 17
the turret knob and tighten the three set screws
evenly around the turret knob.
Note: Do not remove the 3mm Allen Screw
located on top of the turret knob.
2. Target Models.
To re-zero all target models loosen either the
1.5mm or 1.27mm Allen Screws located around
the top lip of the turret knob or Torx 20 screws
located at the top of the turret knob. Rotate the
knob until the zero mark lines up with the index
line on the revolution scale underneath the turret
knob. Re-tighten the Allen or Torx screws.

3. Low Profile ReSettable Hunting Knobs.
On certain models with low profile resettable
Hunting knobs, simply pull up the turret knob
and rotate the knob to zero and the indexed mark
and push down. The turret should adjust after
it is snapped down and engaged to the tracking
system.
Using Your Illuminated Reticle
Sightron offers Illuminated Reticle scopes
that can be operated either with or without
illumination. When the riflescope is operated
without illumination, the reticle will appear the
same as a reticle without illumination. An illumiIlluminated Reticle
nated reticle offers the
shooter contrast when
shooting in low light
circumstances or when
shooting against a dark
background. To operate
the illumination, locate Figure 18
the digital/analog switch located either on the
eyebell or the side of the turret housing. Adjust
the digital/analog switch from the highest illumination setting to the desired illumination setting
for the external lighting circumstance.
17
Certain models offer an (0-11) option to determine intensity of the illumina- OFF Mode
tion, with (0) being the OFF
mode as shown in Figure (19).
Other models offer an ON/
OFF feature with an (1-11)
option to determine intensity
19
of illumination with the (∙) in Figure
S-TAC ON Mode
between each intensity setting
being the OFF mode as seen in
Figures (20 & 21).
Note: Incorrect diopter
settings can cause distortion to
the illumination. Please check
Figure 20
the diopter setting for your eye S-TAC OFF Mode
before using the illumination.
Note: To increase battery
life, always remember to turn
off the illumination when the
scope is not in use. For extended
Figure 21
storage, remove the battery.
Changing the Battery
Models equipped with illumination require a
CR-2032 battery. Depending on intensity of illumination and temperature, battery life ranges between 10
18
and 48 hours. The colder the environment the shorter

­­­Glossary
Adjustable Objective - An Objective lens that is
­­­­adjustable for focus at varying distances. Sightron Adjustable Objectives can focus as low as 30 feet to infinity
depending on the individual model.
Elevation Knob - The adjustment knob on top that adjusts the bullet impact up and down in the vertical plane
when mounted in the traditional manner (elevation
knob on top and windage knob on the right side as seen
from the shooting position).
Eye-Relief - The distance from the rear of the objective
lens to the eye as measured with a full field of view in
the riflescope.
Fast Focus Eyebell - A type of eyebell focus that allows
the ocular lens assembly to rotate independent of the
eyebell assembly. This feature allows for quicker reticle
sighting adjustments.
Objective Lens - The front lens of a Riflescope, usually
the larger of the two outermost lenses of the Riflescope.
The objective lens is a critical factor in determining
resolution and light transmission characteristics.
Ocular Lock Ring - The Lock ring on the rear of the
scope that tightens against the Ocular Lens Assembly to
prevent movement.
Ocular Lens Assembly - The lens group at the rear of
the scope that allows your eye to focus on the reticle.
Parallax - Parallax is the effect or lack of proper adjustment between the image and the reticle. For a riflescope
28
to be parallax free the target image must be focused
onto the reticle. Almost all riflescopes are preset parallax
free at 100 yards. This means, targets that are closer or
farther from this focal point, the scope reticle will show
an apparent movement. However, the amount of reticle
movement is insignificant, and is not of concern when
using the scope for hunting or casual shooting. For other disciplines of this sport, like competition or precision
shooting, the use of a scope with parallax adjustment is
recommended.
Reticle Selector Knob - The knob on the left side of
an Electronic Sighting Device that changes the reticle
pattern.
Rheostat Switch - The switch found on Electronic
Sighting Devices and illuminated reticle scopes that
house the battery. This switch also controls the light
intensity and is adjustable.
Side Focus Knob - An adjustable knob usually found
on the left side of the scope that changes the focus of the
image as viewed through the riflescope.
Variable Power Ring - The ring in the back of the scope
that changes the magnification.
Windage Knob - The adjustment knob on the right side
that adjusts the bullet impact left and right in the horizontal plane when mounted in the traditional manner
(elevation knob on top and windage knob on the right
side as seen from the shooting position). ­­
