APPLICATION
ATN is proud to introduce our unique day/night riflescope systems. This unit starts as a
sensational day time scopes. 80mm (!) objective and 40mm(!) tube combined with the
best, German quality multicoated glass on the market makes this sight the best lightgathering device for shooting in the world. An array of features that will dazzle any marksmen include parallax-free construction; 4 to12 variable Power Zoom (2 to 6 for 2-6x65),
1000-Yard Bullet drop Compensator with interchangeable cams for eight calibers (500
yards and six calibers for 2-6x65) , 1000 Yard Range Finder (500 Yard for 2-6x65) and a
super sharp, illuminated reticle with 10 light settings.
Additional features include 1/8 MOA adjustment at 100 yards, 100% weather resistance
and Matte Black mil-spec finish with beryllium powder coating.
But wait it gets even better! With a simple twist of the eyepiece you can remove the
daytime riflescope eyepiece and replace it with a Night Vision eyepiece converting your
scope into a high quality, very accurate night vision weapon sight.
The Night Vision eyepiece utilizes a US Gen.3+ Light Intensifier Tube (same as used in
Desert Storm and standard for Navy Seals). Also available US 2nd Gen.+.
This ingenious setup allows the shooter to go from day to night in less then 30 seconds
without tools, without changes in eye relief and remain zeroed all around the clock. A
separate, removable, most powerful in the world (450mW) long-range Infrared Illuminator is also included to provide the user with total darkness capability. Furthermore the US
government just granted ATN with a patent for the feature that prevents Tube burn by the
illuminated reticle.

MOUNTING
The 4-12x80 can be mounted utilizing 40mm rings.
The 2-6x65 can be mounted utilizing 42mm rings.
CAUTION: Be sure gun is not loaded. Use safe gun handling procedures at all times.
FOCUSING
While holding the scope about four inches from your
eye, quickly glance through the eyepiece at a featureless,
flatly lit bright area such as a wall or the sky.
CAUTION: Viewing the sun can cause serious eye injury,
never look at the sun with this product or even the naked
eye.
If the reticle is not sharply defined instantly, turn the
eyepiece (either direction) a few turns. Quickly glance
through the scope again. If the focus has improved, but is
still not perfect, continue focusing. If the focus condition
became worse, turn it the opposite way.
±5 Diopter
PRE-ZEROING
Pre-zeroing is recommended and can be done with a scope guide or bore sight. These
items have their own instructions.
CAUTION: Be sure gun is not loaded. Use safe gun handling procedures at all times.
ZEROING
CAUTION: All shooting should be done at an approved range or other safe area. Eye and
ear protection is recommended.
DANGER
If you used a bore-obstructing device, remove it before proceeding. If the barrel
has-been drilled for a mount, check that the screws do not protrude into the bore.
Do not fire live or even blank ammunition with an obstructed barrel. An obstruction
can cause serious damage to the gun and possible personal injury to yourself and
others nearby.
From a steady rest position, fire three rounds at a 100 yard target for 2-6x65 and 200
yard target for 4-12x80. Observe bullet strike on target and adjust windage and elevation
screws as needed to correct aim. You will need to remove the dust caps from the top of
the windage and elevation adjustments to do this.
NOTE: Each click of adjustment changes bullet strike by the amount shown on the chart
below.
WINDAGE / ELEVATION
(inches of movement per click)
When you have finished zeroing, replace windage
and elevation dust caps.

ELECTRONIC RETICLE
Your scope has an Electronic reticle. There are 10 degrees
of illumination. The rheostat is the knob located at the back
of the scope. It is labeled with numbers OFF - 9. When the
rheostat is set at 0 you will see a black etched reticle. The
reticle will light up red electronically as you rotate the rheostat through the numbers, 10 being the brightest.

USING THE ATN RANGEFINDER RETICLE
The rangefinder reticle in your riflescope was designed to assist you in determining the
range of your target. These distances are based on a 6’ target, if a 6’ target fits between
the numbered baseline (the five short horizontal lines) and the post of the reticle above
the baseline determines your distance. If a 6’ target fits between the horizontal post of the
reticle and 2 the target is 200 yards away. If the same target fits between the 4 and the
horizontal post of the reticcle the target is 400 yards away. The same is with the 6 and 10.
The target would be either 600,800 or 1000 yards away.
If a 6’ target
fits between
these two
lines then
the target is
200 yards
away.
If a 6’ target
fits between
these two
lines then
the target
is 400 yards
away.
BULLET DROP COMPENSATOR
The 4-12x also comes standard with a 1000 yard bullet drop compensator for the .50BMG
round. The 2-6x also comes standard with a 500 yard bullet drop compensator for the
.223 round. You should have zeroed your scope in at 100 yards target for 2-6x65 and a
200 yard target for 4-12x80. When shooting at longer ranges the bullet drop compensator
can be adjusted for 200, 300, 400, and 500 yards. Pending on the distance click the bullet
drop compensator to the appropriate setting. This will automatically adjust your reticle for
that particular distance. Your 4-12x also comes with Sother cams allowing you to change
your bullet drop compensator to work with the following categories: .308, 30-. 06, .270,
7 mm Mag, .300 Win Mag. 22-250, .243, .223. The 2-6x65 has the rounds for .223, .308,
30-.06, .270, 7mm MAG, .300 Win Mag.

CHANGING THE BULLET DROP COMPENSATOR
Set the bullet drop compensator to the 100-yards (2-6x65) or
200 yards (4-12x80) range. Then remove the elevation dust
cover from the cam. Next you will find three small set screws
on the bullet drop compensator right above the yardage numbers. Remove these screws and lift the cam off of the scope.
Once you have done this select the desired caliber cam you
would like to use and place this cam where you removed the
previous one (make sure that a replacement cam is set to the
100-yard range for 2-6x65 and 200 yards for 4-12x80). Then
tighten the cam in place by putting the three set screws back.
Finally replace the dust cover.
MAINTAINING YOUR RIFLESCOPE
Your riflescope is waterproof and shockproof. However, you should never try to take apart
or clean it internally (it will void your warranty). If your scope ever does need repairs or
adjustments, it should be returned to ATN’s service department. The exposed optical
surfaces will perform their best if they are occasionally wiped clean with a lens cloth or
with optical quality lens paper like those for eyeglasses or camera lenses. Maintain the
metal surfaces of your rifle scope by removing any dirt or sand with a soft brush so as
to avoid scratching the finish. Wipe down the scope with a damp cloth and follow with a
dry cloth. Finally, going over the tube with a silicone treated cloth will restore luster and
protect the scope against corrosion. Be careful not to touch the any of the lenses with the
silicone cloth.
THE NIGHT VISION EYEPIECE
The Night Vision eyepiece utilizes a US 2nd or 3rd Gen. Light
Intensifying Tube. A separate, removable, most powerful in
the world (450mW), long-range Infrared Illuminator is also
included to provide the user with total darkness capability.
Furthermore the U.S. government just granted ATM with a
patent for the feature that prevents Tube from burning by the
illuminated reticle.
REPLACING DAY-VISION EYEPIECE WITH NIGHT-VISION ONE
Release detent along arrow “Open” on the sight body, turn it counter clockwise and take
it out.
In order to install the night-vision sight
align the bayonet groove in the eyepiece
body with the pin (or finger) on the interior
surface of the sight body (its location is
marked with a dot on the body), insert the
eyepiece as far as it will go then turn it
clockwise. Make sure that the detent has
operated and the eyepiece won’t rotate or
getout. Replace the night-vision with the
day-vision one in a similar way.
5
INSTALLING THE IR ILLUMINATOR
Infra-red (IR) Illuminators are common for night vision technology. The IR light greatly
enhances the performance of your day/night system (in night mode), while remaining
almost totally invisible to the naked eye. In a dark environment, power up the day/night
system (in night mode) and observe a scene with the IR off. Then observe the same
scene with the IR on. Note the difference in illumination. It is important to remember that
the IR illuminator is simply an infra red light source, and like any light source it may loose
its effectiveness over a great distance.
To fix the IR Illuminator to the riflescope screw the fixation screw on the IR into the thread
on the night-vision eyepiece body.

The IR illuminator control buttons are located on its side.
To switch the Digital IR illuminator on/off press “+” and “-” buttons simultaneously. When
the IR illuminator is switched on you can see the green LED lit.
By pushing the buttons “+” and “-” you may adjust the IR brightness.
The IR beam is focusable to change the field of coverage. To change the beam width
slightly turn the IR lens.
You may notice that beam of IR illuminator might not shine directly in the middle of your
viewing image. You can change the direction of the IR beam slightly in horizontal and
vertical directions with rotation of small screws on the side of IR.
You can also change the position of the IR control
panel fitting your needs. Undoing the small set screw
on back of IR. Then use the included wrench to loosen
back ring, Move the IR to its desired position/angle,
retighten ring with wrench then retighten set screw.

PREPARING FOR OPERATION
Install the cells in the seats of the night-vision eyepiece and IR illuminator by the polarity
marks on the devices bodies. Turn on the night-vision eye-piece by means of the switch
located on its body. Bring into focus by rotating the focusing ring of the eyepiece. Turn
on the IR illuminator by using the switch on the remote control. Focus the illuminator by
rotating its lens. You may desire a different field of coverage from the IR illuminator, if so
the beam is focusable. By turning the lens of the IR Illuminator you will change the beam
width slightly.You will need to focus for different distances.
BATTERIES
The batteries (included with the unit) are coin style 3 volt lithium batteries (CR2032) for
Electronic Reticle and two 3 volt lithium batteries (CR123A) for Night Vision Eyepiece and
IR Illuminator.
VERY IMPORTANT!
Your Day/Night System comes with a patented technology that puts the lit reticle of the
riflescope into an infrared mode which helps prevent tube burn. However, even in this
mode if the brightness of the reticle is turned up too high you can run the risk of burning
the reticle pattern into your night vision light intensifier tube. This damage is not covered by the warranty!
When setting the reticle brightness of your scope in the Night Vision Mode please set the
brightness at the lowest visible setting that you are comfortable. This will prolong the life
of the Light Intensifier Tube. We suggest turning the reticle brightness to the (1) selection
then slowly increase it until you clearly see the reticle. Do not overly increase the reticle
brightness.
When you are under low-light conditions and the daylight filter is off you may focus the
front lens for the image to be sharp. The diopter is not to be adjusted.
NOTE: The front lens should be readjusted for viewing objects at different distances.

WARNINGS AND CAUTIONS
• ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE ATN 4-12x80 DAY/NIGHT RIFLESCOPE
WHEN IT IS NOT IN USE. IF YOU DO NOT PLAN ON USING RIFLESCOPE FOR A
PERIOD OF MORE THAN 10 DAYS, YOU SHOULD REMOVE THE BATTERIES.
• Avoid touching lenses. If fingerprints or traces of dirt or dust appear, clean surface with
photographic lens cleaning tissue.
• Keep lens cap/daylight filter on when not in use.
• Avoid contact with dust, steam, and gas.
•THE DAY/NIGHT RIFLESCOPE is friendly to the user or environment.
• Do not disassemble except to clean the front lens and the eyepiece: it will void your
warranty.
• Evaluate the scopes function by looking through it in a lit environment with the daylight
filter lens cap on. Never use in daylight without the daylight filter lens cap on. Do
not surpass ten minutes of testing.
•Never point DAY/NIGHT RIFLESCOPE with night vision eyepiece at a bright light
source. It the scope shuts off automatically after directing it at a bright light source, turn
the unit off and wait for 1 - 2 minutes before turning the unit back on.
• Adverse atmospheric conditions such as fog, smog, or haze and a lack of ambient light
(moon or starlight) may diminish the effective viewing distance. All technical data for this
unit was compiled in a controlled environment, therefore it may be difficult to recreate the
conditions this scope was tested in.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
Q: Flashes, flickers, or clicking occur while operating
S: If it occurs within the first five minutes of inserting new batteries, it is normal and the
device will resume normal operation soon thereafter. If it occurs for more than 10 minutes,
contact your dealer or other authorized service representative for service instructions.
Q: Dark spots on screen.
S: These are cosmetic blemishes in the intensifier tube. They are a by-product of the
process of manufacturing night vision tubes. They will not impede your viewing ability.
Q: Image not clear.
S: Adjust focus ring. If problem persists, increase viewing distance
Q: Fixed-pattern noise in a honeycomb shape.
S: Usually a cosmetic blemish characterized by a faint honeycomb-type pattern. This
usually occurs when viewing very bright lights. Adjust the potentiometer, to reduce brightness.
Q: A pattern of dark thin lines which look like chicken wire.
S: Turn on illuminator, if purchased. If illuminator doesn’t brighten image, replace batteries. If
problem persists, contact ATN for service instructions.
