Congratulations on your purchase of one of the finest, most durable magnified hunting sight on the market today. With just a little bit of care, this sight should last you for years to come. Here are the basic instructions for assembling the sight.

The first step to remove the items from the package and place then on a table. Next, remove the bowplate off the extension bar and mount it to the riser of your bow using the enclosed Flat head screws. To attach the sight head (the part with the pins) to the windage unit, first you take the head in your hands and loosen the lock knob with the lever on it. You will have to remove this knob completely and also remove the lever from this knob, but be careful not to loose the little wave washer or lever as you will need them. Once the knob is removed, you will see a stainless steel tube. You then grab the part that looks kind of like the letter “T”. You position the sight head so that the stainless steel tube slides into the hole on the angled slot. It is the hole that has nothing in it at this point in time. Once the tube is slid into the hole, re attach the wave washer and the knob into the tube and thread down until snug. Replace the lever into any of the holes on the knob.

Next you will remove the lock knob with the lever on it from your windage unit. Once again you will need to remove the lever from the knob and be careful not to loose the washer or knob. You will then slide the stainless tube into the hole in the end of the extension bar. When you have done this, re attach the wave washer and the knob into the tube and tighten until snug. Replace the lever into any of the holes in the knob. .

Now you insert the extension bar back into the bow plate and figure out how far you want to extend the vertical base from your bow. You have only two options on the 3 ½” bar and 3 options on the 5 or 9” bars. Once you have the bar where you want it, tighten the knob down until the bar will not move.

To remove you lens from the sight, you will have to grasp the sight head and loosen the knurled ring with the glow in the dark strip on it. Once that is removed, your lens will just fall out, so be careful not to drop the lens because it will more than likely break if it hits the ground. If you are leaving the lens out, replace the knurled ring so that your glow strip is back in place.

Next you need to get a rough idea of where your pins need to be for shooting. The best way to do this is to knock and arrow and let it rest on the arrow rest. By looking at the bow from behind (like you would be getting ready to draw) you will be able to see if you need to move the windage unit left or right. To move your windage unit, you will loosen the knob with the lever on the bottom of your sight. You will then micro adjust your windage unit in or out by turning the black knob. Once you have the pins inline (or at least real close) with your arrow, then you tighten the knob back down. You are now ready to sight in your hunting sight.

When sighting in, it is recommended that you start at approximately 7 yards and use the top pin. This is recommended because the settings are actually very close to the same as if you were at 20 yards and there is less of a risk of losing an arrow. We recommend that you use a target with the x in the middle and aim at the x so you have a starting point. Shoot your first arrow into the target. While sighting in, it is best to make small adjustments and the shoot another arrow. Remember, always follow the arrow.(i.e. if you miss left, move your windage left and vice versa.) Continue this process until your arrow is in line with the x in the middle of the target. When this happens, it is now time to adjust for your vertical. There are two ways to handle this, you can adjust the pin individually by loosening up the cap screw on the back side of the sight and manually sliding the pin up or down. Or you can loosen the lock knob that is on the side opposite the pins and micro adjust the whole head up or down. Once you are hitting the x at 7 yards, you can then step back to 20 yards and take a couple of more shots to fine tune. After you are sighted in at 20, move back and repeat the process until all of your pins are sighted in. You will have to manually move the pins for the further yardages. Please remember, there is no right or wrong yardage to sight your sight in for. If you want to sight the pins at 15,23 ½, 34, 42, and 51 that is completely up to you.
