Firefield 3-12x40, 4-16x42, 8-32x50, 10-40x50 Tactical Riflescopes Manual (FF13043, FF13044, FF13045, FF13046)
The Firefield Riflescope Series caters to the serious shooters who live for the experience of heart pounding adventures. The Firefield Tactical Riflescopes series consists of riflescopes in a 3-12x, 4-16x, 8-32x and 10-40x magnification for close range to long range shooting. Each riflescope is equipped with a red and green illuminated Mil-Dot reticle that is used for range estimation to help find the distance between the shooter and the target. The locking windage and elevation turrets assure the shooter their adjustments will not shift due to bumps and jostles in rugged terrain. Precision multi-coated optics offer the clearest view for easy target acquisition in both bright and low light conditions. Each riflescope features an adjustable objective lens allowing shooters to correct parallax for supreme accuracy. The Firefield Tactical Riflescope Series offers a feature-filled riflescope at an affordable price.
Firefield - Victory Justifies Everything!
It is recommended to have the riflescope mounted by a professional gunsmith. However, if attempting to mount the riflescope without professional assistance, please strictly adhere to the following directions.
1) All riflescopes come with basic rings for immediate mounting.
2) Unload the weapon. Remove the bolt/firing pin to ensure the weapon is incapable of firing.
3) Install the lower portions of the rings onto a Weaver base. Tighten the screws between 45-65in lbs of torque.
4) Place the riflescope in the rings and install the top portion of the rings loosely so that the riflescope can move freely.
5) Establish the correct eye relief by moving the weapon into the shooting position. While in the shooting
position, move the riflescope forward or backwards until the image is clearly visible.
6) Once correct eye relief is established, check the cross hair alignment by pointing the riflescope at an object that is level and align the cross hair.
7) Once the alignment is checked, tighten the rings evenly. Take care not to overtighten the screws.
8) Check alignment and position, then boresight the riflescope.
BORESIGHTING THE RIFLESCOPE:
Boresighting and test firing should be performed safely on a firing range. Laser boresights are a quick and
accurate method to sight in riflescopes. Below is listed the traditional method of boresighting.
1) When mounting the riflescope on a bolt action rifle, remove the bolt; or when mounting to a semi automatic rifle, disassemble the rifle until there is a straight line of sight through the bore.
2) Use a target at least 20 yards to 50 yards away when sighting in the riflescope. Look through the bore of the weapon and locate the bullseye of the target.
3) Sight in the target through the bore and then make windage and elevation adjustments (see “Operating Windage and Elevation Adjustments” for instructions) to the riflescope until the reticle is centered on the bullseye.
To verify the riflescope is accurately sighted in, always fire a three-shot test group at 100 yards.
4) If you are still not centered, make the necessary amount of adjustments to move the reticle to the center of the target.
5) Again fire a three-shot test group, and use the center of the group to determine final adjustments.
The diopter is the measurement of the eye’s curvature. The Firefield Tactical Riflescope has a diopter adjustment (5) that helps attain a clear sharp reticle. If the reticle does not appear clear, crisp, or sharp, rotate the diopter adjustment ring until the reticle becomes clear and sharp. The adjustment should stay the same unless the riflescope’s operator changes.
OPERATING WINDAGE AND ELEVATION ADJUSTMENTS:
In order to make windage and elevation adjustments:
1) Loosen the lock rings (2) located at the base of the windage and
elevation turrets (3) by rotating counter clockwise.
2) Make the necessary windage and elevation adjustments. The windage
and elevation adjustments are 1/4 MOA, meaning that 1 click moves the
point of impact 1/4 of an inch at 100yds. Adjustments can be both felt and
heard allowing the shooter to make adjustments without looking at the
3) After adjustments are made, tighten the lock rings (2) by rotating clockwise til they are firmly secured. Check that the windage and elevations are unable to rotate.
The Firefield Tactical Riflescopes come equipped with variable magnifications. By rotating the magnification ring (4) to the desired setting, shooters can find a magnification that is appropriate for their shooting scenario. Note: Do not loosen the screw located on the magnification ring, doing so will cause
problems with the variable magnification function.
The Firefield tactical Riflescopes come equipped with adjustable objective lens. By rotating the objective
lens ring (1) to the desired range noted on the ring, shooters can eliminate any parallax in order to make
precision accurate shots.
OPERATING THE ILLUMINATED RETICLE:
The Firefield Tactical Riflescopes feature an illuminated reticle. Illuminating the reticle improves visual distinction between the target and the reticle in low / poor lighting conditions. The reticle can be used in the following states: black (off), red or green. Red and green illumination consists of five levels of brightness. In order to illuminate the reticle:
1) Rotate the reticle illumination adjustment (7) located on the left side of the riflescope
2) Turn the adjustment dial to the desired brightness level until the reticle stands out against the target.
Note: Settings 1-3 are intended for use in low lighting conditions. Settings 4 and 5 are intended for use in bright conditions.
REPLACING THE BATTERY:
If the reticle appears dim or fails to illuminate, the battery needs to be replaced. The Firefield Tactical Riflescopes use a CR2032 to illuminate its reticle. 3 volt CR2032 batteries can be purchased at stores where batteries are sold or online. In order to replace the battery:
1) Remove the battery cap located on the reticle illumination adjustment (6) with a flat head screw driver. Rotate the cap counterclockwise until it is removed. It might be necessary to hold the illumination adjustment in place to prevent it from rotating.
2) Remove the old battery and insert a new battery with positive (+) side up.
4) Replace the battery cap. Use a flat head screw driver, rotate the cap clockwise until it is attached. It might be necessary to hold the illumination adjustment in place to prevent it from rotating.
Proper maintenance of the riflescope is recommended to ensure longevity. It is recommended that when the riflescope becomes dirty that it is wiped down with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Blow dirt and debris off all optics and then clean lenses with a lens cleaning cloth. No further maintenance is required.
Never allow children to use or handle this product.
The Firefield riflescopes are nitrogen purged and o-ring sealed unless otherwise noted. DO NOT disassemble the riflescope for any reason as this will void the warranty and could be hazardous. Any internal work should be handled by the manufacturer. Any tampering with the purge screw will void the warranty.
Never, ship back a riflescope without getting proper authorization beforehand. Doing so could result in losing the riflescope due to a multitude of reasons. If problems occur with your riflescope:
1) Check the firearm’s mount and verify that it is securely attached to the rifle. If there is any shifting, retighten the mounting system.
2) When test firing a rifle, check the point of impact relative to windage and elevation adjustments.
3) Be sure to use factory-loaded ammunition of the same bullet type,
weight, and preferably lot number when sighting.
