Bushnell 3.5X User Manual
ILLUMINATED RED/GREEN MP SCOPES
Congratulations on selecting your new Bushnell Illuminated MP Scope. This scope has been specifically designed for use on shotguns, rifles and handguns. It is constructed and assembled by highly skilled craftsmen to Bushnell’s high quality standards. The precision and craftsmanship with which this scope was built ensures its performance under demanding conditions. This scope will provide the shooting accuracy and repeatability which have made Bushnell legendary.
The following photographs are a guide to the nomenclature and location of the parts mentioned throughout this text.
(3.5x model only)
NOTE: POSITION OF CONTROLS MAY VARY BY MODEL.
No focusing or diopter adjustment is necessary on models with no magnification ("1x"). The clarity and resolution will be as sharp and defined as can be seen with your eyes. Models with magnification ("3.5x") provide a diopter adjustment ring, located around the outside of the eyepiece to compensate for differences in individual eyesight. Looking through the scope, first turn the reticle intensity control up until the reticle is easily visible, but not too bright. Then rotate the diopter ring until the reticle appears sharp to your eye. You may find it helpful to have the scope pointed at a simple, uncluttered background (for example, a white wall) as you adjust the diopter, so the reticle can be seen more clearly.
If your scope is mounted improperly, you may never achieve the best accuracy from your firearm. You may choose to mount your own scope or opt to have a gunsmith do it for you.
Your scope should be mounted as low on the firearm as possible. This will keep your face or cheek close to the line of sight and will also keep the scope close to the center line of the bore – both factors will help you attain optimum accuracy. When properly mounted, the scope will be as near center as possible, allowing for a full range of elevation and windage adjustments.
The Bushnell Illuminated MP Scopes feature an integrated mount, ready to accomodate standard Weaver or Picatinny type mounting rails.
Bore sighting is a good preliminary procedure in achieving proper alignment of your scope to the firearm. It is best performed with a Bushnell Bore Sighter. If not available, it can be done adequately in the following manner: Sight through the gun barrel at a 100 yard target. Then sight through your scope and bring the reticle to the same point on the target. The reticle is illuminated by turning on the on/off switch. Rotate the knob until you have achieved the desired brightness.
Major elevation adjustment should not be needed but, if necessary, it should be accomplished by shimming the mount base. It is important not to use the elevation adjustment of the scope for major adjustments. Your scope’s internal elevation adjustment should be reserved for fine tuning to achieve zero at the called for distance.
Final zeroing of your firearm and scope should be done with live ammunition and based on your expected shooting distance. If you anticipate most of your shooting at short range,
ELEVATION & WINDAGE
Elevation or windage adjustments are made by removing the cover caps from the adjustment knobs. Using a screwdriver or coin, make adjustments in the appropriate “UP” and/or “R” direction indicated by the arrows. Each “click” or stop in the adjustment will change the bullet impact by 1/4 Minute Of Angle (MOA) which translates to 1/8 inch at 50 yds., 1/4 inch at 100 yds., and 1/2 inches at 200 yds. Reinstall the cover caps over the adjustments to protect your zero and to exclude dirt from the mechanism.

Your Illuminated Red Dot Scope is powered by a long life 3V lithium battery, type 2032. If you ever have to change your battery, grasp the battery cover (top cap of the intensity control) and turn counter clockwise until the battery is
CAUTION: BE SURE GUN IS NOT LOADED WHEN INSTALLING THE BATTERY
The lenses are coated to allow maximum light transmission. With proper care, your scope should last you a lifetime. When cleaning the lenses reasonable precautions are necessary. Dry dirt and dust can be removed by an air blast or with a soft brush. Fingerprints and lubricants can be wiped off with an eyeglass tissue or a cotton swab and a mild soap solution. Use the lens covers supplied with your scope whenever it is convenient.
1.Lens caps provide good protection in foul weather. Since the lens elements are recessed to protect them and minimize any obstruction of the optics by adverse conditions – i.e. snow, rain spots, or dust, the firearm can be carried in the horizontal position, at the ready.
2.Storing your firearm and scope overnight in the outdoors will help to avoid condensation and fogging on the outside of the optics when a temperature change occurs. If it is very cold, however, the battery should be removed and kept warm as cold temperatures reduce the battery life.
