Mounting Scope with C-1 Rings
1
Turn the Cam Lever leftward to
its unlocked position. Place the
QD ring on the Picatinny rail at a
desired position. Seat the cross
bolt at the bottom of the ring into a
selected Picatinny slot.
2
Turn the Cam Lever from left to
right to begin locking the QD ring
on the rail, but do not complete the
locking motion, leaving some travel
distance to allow for adjustment.
3
Use the included Allen wrench to
adjust the Hex Screw at the side
of the cam for proper tension and
fit against the rail. Adjust clockwise
to increase the tension and tighten
the clamping width. Adjust counterclockwise to decrease the tension
and increase the clamping width.
4
The optimal tension is achieved when
the side plate first makes contact
with the Picatinny rail while the Cam
Lever still has enough travel left for
you to securely snap into its locking
position. Once you achieve the
optimal tension, push the Cam Lever
all the way to the right for a positive
lock onto the rail. You may repeat
Step 3 and 4 if needed to find the best
clamping tension and locking position
for your rings on the rail.

d. understanding the reticle
Mil-dot reticle is the most widely used reticle on
Leapers riflescopes which provides range estimating
capability. The reticle has a big crosshair throughout
the reticle and multiple dots spread equally apart on
the lines in the central area. The distance between
two adjacent dots is designed to be 1 milli-radian or
3.44MOA at 10X.
1. Each scope has a reticle for aiming. A reticle is a thin planar component
disposed perpendicular to the optical axis inside the main tube. It is made
by etched metal film or etched glass. The former is called Wire Reticle,
and the latter is called Etched Glass Reticle.
2. For Leapers riflescopes, the reticle is on the second image plane. The
reticle doesn’t change when the magnification is adjusted. Therefore,
the dimension that the reticle occupies on the image of the target is
dependent on the magnification.
3. Leapers offers a variety of reticles for different scopes. Below is the
introduction of the reticles.
The regular mil-dot reticle on the market usually has
4 dots on each direction. Leapers scopes usually
has 6 or 9 dots on each direction to provide more
flexibility in range estimating. For mil-dot reticle with
9 dots on each direction, if you count the 2 inner tips
of the opposite crosshairs, there are 19 aiming points
or totally 21 including the inner tips.
TARGET DOT RETICLE
Target Dot reticle consists of a single floating dot in
the center as the aiming point with the least visual
distraction. It is commonly used for quick aiming
applications with lower demand for pin-point accuracy.
The shooter aims by pointing the dot on the target. For
Leapers riflescope, the dot size is about 2MOA.

mil-dot chart. Place the center of the dot against one edge of
Duplex reticle consists of thin crosshairs in the center
and four posts extending to the reticle perimeter from
the edges of the thin crosshairs. The thicker posts
stand out against the background, while the thin

be etched on glass or etched from metal thin film.
Accordingly, the center crosshair may be floating or
connected to the outer bars.

the target. An example formula for 4-16X40 Full Size Scope is
provided here for your reference:
Height or Width of Target in Meters x 1000
PRO 5-STEP RETICLE
Pro 5-step reticle is designed for crossbows, but
can also be used in other applications such as rifles,
airguns, etc. The reticle consists of five horizontal lines
and a vertical line. And there is a thin crosshair in the
center. If used on crossbows, the horizontal lines are
for aiming at 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50-yard distances. The
lines are calibrated for 300fps crossbows. The user
needs to find out the exact yardage of each line during
zeroing process.
Once the target has been measured in mils, depending on the
Height or Width of Target in Mils.

►►
For accurate range estimating the size of the target must be
known.
►►
Each model comes with its own formula and a pre-calculated
mil-dot table of most used distance estimates to aid the user.
Example:
Zeroing the Pro 5-Step Reticle Scope:
If used on a rifle or an airgun, zero a scope with Pro 5-step Reticle as
you would with a regular scope (please refer to the Zeroing section).
If used on a crossbow, follow the steps below to zero a scope with Pro
5-step Reticle:
1. Place a target 10 yards away, aim at the center of the target with the
center crosshair and fire a few test shots.
2. Adjust the windage and elevation until you hit the bullseye (please
refer to Zeroing section for W/E adjustment).
3. Place the target 20 yards away, still aim with the center crosshair and
shoot. Make minor adjustment to windage and elevation if needed.
4. Walk back 8-10 yards and fire shots at the center of the target to
determine the accurate yardage of the next descending crosshair
line. Repeat this for each of the 4 descending crosshair lines.

iii.
If the impact point of the pellet or bullet is exactly in the
center of the target then the scope is zeroed. If it is not,
you will need to adjust the reticle using the elevation and/or
windage adjusters as follows:
a. Vertical Adjustment (Elevation) - Use your fingers to
turn the adjusting knob as required. One click in either
direction equals approximately 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 inch at
100 yards (check exact specifications for your scope).

ZERO RESETTING
Once your scope is zeroed, rotate the Zero Locking Ring to lock
Zero. The “0” marking may not be facing you at the original center
position now. Optionally, you can use the following steps to Reset
Zero by rotating the “0” marking to the center positions:
i.
Ensure zero is “locked”.
ii.
Use the Allen wrench to turn the Zero Resetting Hex
Screw by 180-360 degrees to dis-engage the W/E knobs.
(IMPORTANT: Be gentle with the screw movement. Do not
over extend the rotation. Stop when meeting resistance in
the rotation)
iii.
When the W/E knob is dis-engaged, rotating the knob will
not produce any clicking sound and will not affect zero. You
can re-position the “0” marking to the center position. (If
you get clicks when rotating the W/E knob, the knob was
not properly dis-engaged. You need to go back and re-start
from zeroing your scope.)
iv.
Before tightening the Zero Resetting Hex Screw, turn the
Zero Locking Ring counter-clockwise by 40-70 degrees to
un-lock zero.
v.
Be careful to keep the W/E knob still now that it is unlocked. Use the Allen wrench to gently tighten down the
Zero Resetting Hex Screw to complete Zero Resetting. (If
you get clicks while tightening the screw, you will need to
go back and re-start from zeroing you scope.)
vi.
IMPORTANT: Rotate the Locking Ring clockwise to lock
zero immediately.
Follow the instructions that came with your bore
sighter and install it in the muzzle of your rifle lining it
up with the scope as close as possible.
b.
Pull the windage/elevation knob out for adjustment.
c.
Sighting through the scope as though you were going to
shoot and dial the knobs to make adjustment for the windage
or elevation until the crosshair matches the bore sighter.
d.
Push the windage or elevation knob down to lock the zero
position.
e.
Remove the bore sighter from the muzzle. You are ready for
zeroing the target.
ii. Zeroing on the Target
Important Note: When turning the Zero Resetting Screw loose to
dis-engage W/E, zero has to be “locked”. When tightening the Zero
Resetting Screw to engage W/E, zero cannot be locked. Scope damage
may occur if the steps are not followed.
a.
Place a target 100 yards away (35 yards for air gun).
b.
Ideally, use a steadying device such as a shooting stand
or bipod, set the scope at highest magnification, aim at the
center of the target, fire a test shot, if safe to do so.
c.
If the impact point of the pellet or bullet is exactly in the
center of the target then the scope is zeroed. If not, you will
need to adjust the reticle using the elevation and/or windage
adjustment as follows:
d.
Vertical adjustment (Elevation) – Use your fingers to turn
the adjusting knob as required. One click in either direction
equals approximately 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 inch at 100 yards
depending the model.
e.
Horizontal adjustment (Windage) - Use your fingers to rotate
the adjusting knob as required. One click in either direction
equals approximately 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 inch at 100 yards
depending the model.
f.
Having adjusted the windage and elevation as required, fire,
if safe to do so, another test shot. Keep adjusting and test
firing until the test shot hit the target center.
g.
Now the scope should be zeroed. Make sure to lock both
elevation and windage knobs.

ZERO RESETTING
Once your scope is zeroed,
push down both knobs and
make sure they are fully
locked. The “0” marking
may not be facing you at the
original center position now.
Optionally, you can use the
following steps to Reset Zero
by rotating the “0” marking to
the center positions:
i.
Use the Allen wrench provided to turn both Zero Resetting
Hex Screws on the side of the knob counterclockwise for
1 to 2 turns to dis-engage the W/E knobs. When a knob
is “dis-engaged”, the top cap of the knob can freely spin
without reticle movement. (IMPORTANT: Be gentle with
the screw movement. Do not over extend the rotation. Stop
when the W/E knob is dis-engaged)
NOTE: To lock an adjustment knob requires proper gear
engagement internally. Before pressing the knob down to lock,
use minor force to push to get the feel of resistance. If tough to
push down, make very slight rotational adjustment (no clicking)
to locate the right position to press down. DO NOT force the
lock-down.
ii.
When the W/E knob is dis-engaged, rotating the knob will
not produce any clicking sound and will not affect zero. You
can re-position the “0” marking to the center position. (If
you get clicks when rotating the W/E knob, the knob was
not properly dis-engaged. You need to go back and re-start
from zeroing your scope.)
ZEROING
iii.
Be careful to keep the W/E knob still now that it is unlocked. Use the Allen wrench to gently tighten down the
Zero Resetting Hex Screw to complete Zero Resetting. (If
you get clicks while tightening the screw, you will need to
go back and re-start from zeroing you scope.)
ZERO LOCKING (W/E are “ locked” for a new scope.)
When the adjustment knob is pushed down, the knob is “locked”
and cannot be rotated. This will prevent any accidental movement
to lose zero.

When the turret is ready for adjustment, you will
able to dial and have a clear audible click.
b.
Follow the instruction of your bore sighter and
install it in the muzzle of your rifle, lining it with the
scope as closely as possible.
c.
If applicable, turn on the illumination and set it at
your prefered color and brightness.

i.
Zeroing on a Target
a.
Place a target 100 yards away (35 yards for air
gun).
b.
Use a steadying device such as a shooting stand
or bipod, set the illumination to your prefer settings,
aim at the center of the target and fire a test group
shot, if safe to do so.
c.
If the impact point of the test shot is exactly in the
center of the target then the scope is zeroed. If
not, you will need to adjust the reticle using the
elevation and/or windage adjustment. Follow the
Point of Impact (POI) direction on the turret to dial
the knob accordingly.
d.
Having adjusted the elevation and windage as
required, fire, if safe to do so, another test group.
Keep adjusting and test firing until the test shot hit
the target center in an acceptable small grouping.
Now the scope should be zeroed. Make sure to replace both
elevation and windage knob caps.
J-6 Lockable W/E Operation
The Windage and Elevation Adjustment Target Knobs have a
unique Locking Screw design. An Allen wrench is provided with
the scope for adjustment.
