Instruction Manual
Congratulations on your choice of a Nikon RIFLESCOPE. Your new scope is the
finest example of Nikon’s rugged and durable construction and precision bright
optics; important qualities for a serious shooter’s riflescope.
Whether you use your scope for hunting or for target shooting, the procedure for
mounting is identical. You should acquire a set of high quality steel mounting
rings which have a standard diameter of 25.4 mm (1inch). Follow the ring
manufacturer’s instructions for mounting procedures. After mounting the scope
on your rifle, follow the procedures for reticle alignment.
Caution
(1) Do not look at the sun through the riflescope. It will permanently damage
your eye. This precaution applies to all optical devices such as cameras and
binoculars.
(2) The riflescope is effectively sealed against moisture and dust. You may use
your scope safely either in the rain or in dusty climates. To preserve the
appearance of the scope, we suggest that it be dried and cleaned prior to
storage. Use a soft cloth for cleaning metal surfaces and use photographic lens
tissue to clean the scope’s lenses.
When setting the reticle for hunting, you should determine your standard range
and then adjust the reticle based upon that target distance. For targets which
vary from the standard distance you may simply adjust the position of the reticle
in relation to your target, or you may wish to use the procedure for trajectory
compensation. It’s up to your personal preference.
We hope that you will enjoy your new Nikon RIFLESCOPE for many years to
come. Enjoy using it, and above all, always follow safe shooting procedures!

Instructions
(1) Focusing
(1) Look through the eyepiece with your eye positioned about 10cm (4 in) away
from the eyepiece lens (Fig. 3-1), and you will see the Nikoplex reticle (Fig. 3-2),
the Crosshair with dot reticle (Fig. 3-3) or the Turkey Pro reticle (Fig. 3-4) the
Crosshair reticle (Fig. 3-5) or the Miliradian Dot reticle (Fig. 3-6), or the BDC
reticle (Fig. 3-7).
Be sure your eye is positioned within proper alignment and proper eye relief
otherwise the view will “black out”.
(2) Point the objective end of the scope at the sky (Do not point at the sun) or at
a plain unpatterned wall.
Loosen the lock ring. (2x20 only)
Turn the eyepiece adjustment counter-clockwise and then turn it clockwise until
the reticle appears sharp.
(2x20 only)
(3) Finally, without moving the eyepiece adjustment, turn the eyepiece lock ring
as Fig. 3-8 to end so that the eyepiece adjustment will be firmly locked.
The lock ring must be firmly tightened to ensure an air-tight seal.
The reticle should be immediately crisp and clear to the quick glance.
(2) Magnification
• The Nikon Riflescope 6x42 has a fixed magnification of 6X, 4x40 of 4x, 2x20 of
1.75X.
• The Nikon Riflescope 3-9x40 has a variable magnification from 3 to 9X, 2-7x32
from 2 to 7X, 1.5-4.4x20 from 1.5 to 4.5X, 4-12x40 A0 from 4 to 16.5X, 3.510x50 from 3.5 to 10X. 3.3-10x44 A0 from 3.3 to 10X, 2.5-8x28 from 2.5 to 8x.
To change powers, just rotate the power selector ring until the desired
magnification appears adjacent to the power index dot.
(3) Adjustment of the riflescope
Sighting through the riflescope, align the rifle with your aiming point on the
target and shoot a trial round. If the bullet does not hit the aiming point, adjust
the elevation and windage, as follows:
• If the bullet hits under the aiming point, turn the elevation adjustment
(counter-clockwise) in the direction of the arrow marked “U” for up as in
Fig. 3-9. If the bullet hits high, turn adjustment (clockwise) in the direction
of the arrow marked “D” for down.
• If the bullet hits to the right of the aiming point, turn the windage
adjustment (clockwise) in the direction of the arrow marked “L” for left as
•
in Fig. 3-10. If the bullet hits to the left of the aiming point, turn
adjustment (counter-clockwise) in the direction of the arrow marked “R”
for right.
For the Nikon Riflescope 6.5-20x44 A0 adjustment is made by turning the
grip by hand. If the bullet hits under the aiming point, turn the grip in the
direction of the arrow marked “U” (Fig. 3-11). If the bullet hits to the left of
the aiming point, turn the grip in the direction of the arrow marked “R”
(Fig. 3-12).
(4) Adjustable objective
The Nikon Riflescope 6.5-20x44 A0, 4-12x40 A0, 3.3-10x44 A0 and 5.5-16.5x44
A0 can be more precisely focused within the range of at least 50 yards (45.72 m)
~ infinity by rotating the objective adjusting ring.
Parallax can be eliminated and sight alignment will be accurate.
Use its distance scale as a reference guide.
Rotation of the adjusting ring is intentionally adjusted to be heavy at the factory
so that it will not move easily during shooting.
(5) Changing the grip (6.5-20x44 A0 only)
Remove the protective cap of the grip by turning it counterclockwise. Align the
grip to the 0 (zero) position of the scale ring. This is to assure that the scale ring
will be correctly aligned to the new grip (the alignment position should be
remembered).
With the grip held with your fingers to avoid shifting of the aligned scale ring,
turn the bolt in the top of the grip counterclockwise with the hex key supplied
until the bolt comes out. Then remove the grip (Fig. 3-13).
Insert the new grip into position and align the scale ring to 0.
Insert the bolt. By securing the grip with our fingers to avoid shifting of the scale
ring, turn the bolt clockwise with the hex key supplied, until the grip is firmly
secured.
(6) Zero setting of grip (except 6.5-20x44 A0) (Fig. 3-14)
After the reticle has been adjusted to the point of impacts, with the grip held
with your fingers to avoid shifting of the aligned grip, turn the grip screw in top
of the grip counterclockwise with coin. Then lift the grip up and align the “ ”
with the index mark. It may happen that the “ ” could not align with the index
mark exactly because of the coupling pitch of the grip with the shaft. And by
securing the grip with your fingers to avoid shifting of the grip, turn the grip
screw clockwise with the coin until the grip is firmly secured.
Note:
• The windage and elevation scales of the Nikon Riflescope 1.5-4.5x20,
4x40, and 2x20 are calibrated in divisions of minute of angle with a
click at intervals of minute of angle (half division).
• The windage and elevation scales of the Nikon Riflescope 3.5-10x50, 3.310x44 A0, 4-12x40 A0, 5.5-16.5x44 A0, 3-9x40, 2-7x32, 1.5-4.5x24, 2.58x28 and 6x42 are calibrated in division of minute of angle with a click
at intervals of minute of angle (one division).
• The windage and elevation scales of the Nikon Riflescope 6.5-20x40 A0
are calibrated in division of 1/8 minute of angle with a click at intervals of
1/8 minute of angle (one division).
• When adjusting the reticle to the point of aim, remember that one minute
of angle equals approximately one inch (2.54 cm) at 100 yards (91.44 m).
Therefore, if the impact point is two inches (5.08 cm) low and one inch
(2.54 cm) right at 100 yards (91.44 m) Parallax Setting, you should adjust
two minutes of angle up one minute of angle left. In case of 50 yards
(45.72 m). Parallax Setting the adjusting value is double. In case of 75
yards (68.58 m) Parallax Setting is 1.5 times.
Maintenance
(1) Lens cleaning
To remove dirt or fingerprint, soak gauze or lens cleaning paper (silicon-free
paper sold at camera shop) with a small quantity of absolute alcohol (available
