How To Use Your RT-6 Riflescope Eyepiece Focusing The eyepiece can be focused so that the reticle appears sharp and black to any individual’s eye. Follow this procedure to quickly adjust the focus: 1. Point the scope at the sky or a plain wall and take a quick glance through the scope. If the reticle appears sharp and black, no further adjustment is necessary. 2. If the reticle does not appear sharp and black, take quick glances through the scope while rotat- ing the eyepiece focus ring until the reticle pattern is sharp and black. NOTE: Do not look through the eyepiece as you turn the focus ring. Your eyes will adjust to the out-of-focus condition. Windage / Elevation Adjustment Low-Profile Adjustment Knobs The low profile adjustment knobs on RT-6 riflescopes feature a finger adjustment for both windage and elevation. The dials are calibrat- ed so that 1 click = .5 MOA. Once you have successfully zeroed your scope, you can reset the zero on your dials with these simple steps: 1. With turret caps removed, grip or press down on knob top firmly to keep knob from turning. 2. Put pen or other small object into the small hole located on the dial, 180° from “0”. 2
3. K eeping firm grip on the knob, use the pen to turn the dial back to zero, lining up the number zero with the white indicator dot. Only the numbered dial should move – do not allow the entire knob to move or else you will alter your windage and elevation zero settings. NOTE: You do not have to reset the zero on your dials for your scope to function properly. Doing so can give you peace of mind that your zero is set, plus you can easily confirm if it has moved at any time, but this step is optional. Throw Lever Adjustment The RT-6 comes with an integrated throw lever on the magnification ring. Featuring a versatile design, it can be positioned at any point on the ring. To change the position of the lever, loosen the locking screw using the supplied wrench. Slide the lever off the current rib and select your pre- ferred position and then slide the lever over the new rib. Position the lever anywhere along the rib. Tighten the mounting screw on the top of the lever using the supplied hex wrench. Make sure that it is snug, but do not over-tighten. 3
Illuminated Reticle Adjustment Rotary Illumination Illumination makes it easier to see the reticle in low light conditions. The intensity of the illu- mination is controlled by a rotary illumination switch located on the left side of the adjust- ment turret. The switch has 10 intensity levels and an “Off” position in between each level. The reticle is powered by a 3-volt lithium cell battery #CR2032. To install a new battery, simply unscrew the battery cap on the rotary switch and install the new battery flat side (+) up. It is advisable to remove the battery for long-term storage (over a month). Care & Maintenance RT-6 riflescopes are fully waterproof and fog- proof. In the event that the lenses are subjected to dust, dirt or mud, follow these steps to clean and protect the lens surface. Failure to remove grit before final cleaning is sure to damage lens coatings. Coarse dirt/debris must be removed from the lens surface. The most convenient way to clean a lens surface is to use a Lens Pen. Po- sition the scope so particles will fall away from the lens, and then use the Lens Pen or soft brush to gently whisk away the debris while blowing on the lens to dislodge the particles. For heavy dirt, like dried mud, use a spray of clean water or lens cleaning fluid to remove the dirt. Your RT-6 riflescope will provide reliable perfor- mance given reasonable care and treatment. All moving assemblies are permanently lubri- cated. Only occasional cleaning of the outside of the scope and the exterior lenses is required. Never disassemble your scope. Disassembly by anyone other than our factory will void the warranty. If you have any other problems with your riflescope, contact Burris Customer Service. 4
