WARNING

Before working on your TANGO6 riflescope always ensure that the firearm is unloaded with the safety on.

OPERATION

Installing the battery

TANGO6 riflescopes are equipped with illuminated reticles and require CR2032 batteries. To install the battery loosen the battery port cover on the left side of the riflescope turret. Place the battery into the battery port with the plus side facing outward. Screw the battery port cover back onto the left side of the turret.

ILLUMINATION BRIGHTNESS LEVEL

• Select the illumination brightness level that suits your conditions the best

• Higher power settings, indicated by larger squares, are better suited for brighter conditions

• Lower power settings, indicated by smaller squares, are better suited for low light conditions

• Brightness level settings alternate between on and off locations. Filled in squares indicate on positions.

• TANGO6 riflescopes feature MOTAC, they will automatically turn off after 6 minutes of rest. They will automatically power on after first motion.

Mounting the riflescope

Choose rings and bases that correspond to your firearms action and the diameter of your riflescope's maintube. In order to maintain a comfortable check weld always mount your riflescope with the lowest possible ring height. Make sure that there is no interference with any of the moving parts of your firearm.

Refer to the SIG SAUER Mount guide for the proper mount selection for your specific riflescope.

Set up bases and rings based on the base and ring manual

10

sigoptics.com

Set proper eye relief

Slightly loosen the riflescope rings and position the riflescope as far forward as it will mount. For adjustable power riflescopes select the highest possible power. Mount the rifle in a comfortable and repeatable, natural position. Adjust the position of the riflescope backwards until you have maximum field of view in your riflescope.

Ensure that the vertical crosshair of the riflescope matches the vertical centerline of your rifle and tighten the rings and bases to the correct torque

• To turn the illuminated reticle on rotate the illumination power selector ring to the desired level.

• To turn the illuminated reticle off rotate the illumination power selector ring to an empty square.

SIGHT ADJUSTMENTS

The riflescope will come centered. This will get you close to your rifles zero out of the box.

Focusing the reticle with the diopter

Aim the riflescope at a light object to maximize the contrast of the reticle. Turn the diopter until the reticle comes into focus.

Adjusting Power

TANGO6 riflescopes are variable power. In order to increase the power setting rotate the power selector ring clockwise. Turn the power selector ring until the image is magnified to the desired range.

12

Bore sighting

If you are installing the riflescope from other than its factory settings it is best to bore site your riflescope.

This will give you a coarse zero and will require further adjustments.

With the rifle in a firm rest, remove the bolt from your rifles action (with AR style rifles remove the rifles upper from its lower assembly and remove the bolt carrier). Look through the rifles barrel from the rear of the rifle and aim it so that your target is centered. Without moving the position of the barrel, use the elevation and windage adjustments of your riflescopes reticle so that it is also in the center of the target.

Parallax Adjustment*

When using your riflescope for longer range targets, parallax can become more noticeable. This can be noticed when it appears that your reticle is moving separate from the target when you move your head/eye from side to side. To adjust parallax rotate the parallax dial clockwise for increased distances. Turn the dial until the parallax is corrected.

*Certain models offer adjustment on the left side of the turret.

13

Point of Impact (POI) corrections

POI corrections should be done using the center of a three shot group. If you are not able to get a consistent three shot group then you will need to further trouble shoot your firearm.

If your POI is located to the left of your point of aim (POA), you will need to adjust the windage to the right. To adjust the windage to the right you must release the lock of the windage adjustment dial by pulling it outwards. Once the dial is pulled out you are able to make POI adjustments. To move the POI to the right turn the windage adjustment dial counter-clockwise. To move the POI to the left turn the windage adjustment dial clockwise. Once you are satisfied with your POI, lock the dial but pressing it in.

If your POI is located below your POA you will need to adjust the elevation adjustment dial up. To adjust the elevation up you must release the lock of the elevation adjustment dial by pulling it up. Once the lock is released you are able to make POI adjustments. To move the POI up you will need to turn the elevation adjustment dial counter-clockwise. To move the POI down you will need to turn the elevation adjustment dial clockwise.

Once your POI is located where you want it in relation to your POA you can lock your adjustment dials, reset your zero, and set your zero lock.

Setting the Zero Stop

To set your zero stop you will need to remove the elevation adjustment dial from your rifle scope. This is done by loosening the top three hex screws located in the knurling of your dial using the provided 2mm hex wrench. Once these are removed the dial can be removed by lifting it straight up.

Once you have removed your elevation adjustment dial the adjustment shroud should be visible. This will also need to be removed to set your zero stop. To remove the adjustment shroud loosen the hex screw in the middle of the shroud using the provided 2mm hex wrench until it spins freely. Pull up on the shroud and remove it entirely.

14

15

The zero stop mechanism should now be visible. To set the zero stop, loosen the three set screws on the mechanism's outer rim using the provided 1.5mm hex wrench. Once the outer rim is loose and can rotate freely, gently spin it clockwise until it stops. Re-tighten the set screws to finger tight or 25 in-oz (1.56 in-lbs

/ 0.177 N-m) of torque.

sigoptics.com

You will now need to place the adjustment shroud back on the scope. This can be done by orientating it in the same manner that it was previously and tightening the center hex screw to finger tight or 8 in-lbs

(0.9 N-m) of torque.

16

Once the adjustment shroud is reassembled, you can place the adjustment dial back in its original position (at the zero position in most cases).

17

Resetting the Zero of your adjustment dials

Both the elevation and windage adjustment dials of TANGO6 riflescopes are able to zeroed. This is done by loosening the three set screws on each dial using the provided 2mm hex wrench and rotating it until it is zeroed. Be sure to loosen the set screws enough so that the dial spins freely. Once the dial is zeroed, tighten the set screws to finger tight or 8 in-lbs (0.9 N-m).

TANGO6 riflescopes feature a rotation indicator. The indicator is meant to be used with the adjustment dial in the up position.

18

Installing a SBT™ SIG Ballistic Turret Dial

• Remove the elevation adjustment dial by loosening the three set screws near the knurling of the dial.

Once these are loose the dial should pull free of the adjustment shroud.

• Place the new SBT dial on the adjustment shroud and reset your zero.

• Tighten your set screws to finger tight or 8 in-lbs (0.9 N-m).

MAINTENANCE

Your SIG SAUER riflescope requires very low maintenance.

• If your riflescope came with an illuminated reticle make sure that you turn the illumination control to one of the off positions when it is not in use.

• If the battery for your illuminated reticle is dead replace it by rotating the illumination battery port cap counter-clockwise. Replace the battery with a new CR2032 battery positive side facing out.

• Keep your lenses clear by using a soft cloth or lens pen. The best way to maintain image quality is by keeping your lenses clear of dirt and dust that cause scratches.

19

TROUBLESHOOTING

POI changes between groups
