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
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 30 mm.
Follow the ring manufacturer’s instructions for mounting procedures. After mounting the scope on your
rifle, follow the procedures for reticle alignment.
(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 that 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!
