CAUTION: BE SURE THAT THE FIREARM IS NOT LOADED. PRACTICE SAFE FIREARM HANDLING AT ALL TIMES.


Eyepiece Focusing
The purpose of eyepiece focusing is to adjust the scope so that the reticle (crosshairs) appear clear and sharp. All Aim Sports riflescopes are factory set for 20/20 or corrected to 20/20 vision. If the reticle does not appear sharp, you can adjust it as follows.

CAUTION: DIRECT VIEWING OF THE SUN CAN CAUSE PERMANENT EYE DAMAGE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO VIEW THE SUN WITH EITHER THIS PRODUCT OR THE NAKED EYE.

Rotating Eyepiece Design:

  1. Hold the eyepiece in one hand and loosen the lock ring by rotating it counterclockwise away from the eyepiece.
  2. point the scope at a bright, featureless surface any distance away (blank wall, sky, a sheet of white paper) and with your eye about three inches from the eyepiece, rotate the eyepiece clockwise or counterclockwise until the reticle becomes clear and sharp. it may help to look away and then back through the eyepiece to confirm the correct setting.
  3. When confirmed, retighten the eyepiece lock ring.

Fast Focus Eyepiece Design:
If your model is equipped with a fast focus eyepiece, there is no locking ring. As above , you view a well-lit featureless surface. Then you simply rotate the fast focus element in or out to make the reticle appearance clear or sharp.


Mounting
To get the best performance from your Aim Sports scope, it must be mounted properly. If you are not familiar with mounting a riflescope, it is strongly recommended that you seek the assistance of a qualified gunsmith. If you decide to mount it your self, proceed as follows:

  1. Some Aim Sports models come equipped with ring mounts. If yours did, it will have either weaver-style ring mounts (for most high-power applications and some crossbows) or 3/8" ring mounts (for rimfire, air rifle, and some crossbows). Examine your mounting rail or grooved receiver to determine if you have the correct ring mounts. If so, loosen the mount screws and attach the ring mount’s to either your weaver-style rail or 3/8" rail. Care should be taken when attaching to a weaver-style rail that the ring mount’s cross bolt fits into the grooves provided. Tighten the screws, but leave them loose enough so that the scope can be slid forward and backward and rotated.
  2. With the firearm held in a comfortable shooting position, slide the scope forward and backward until a full field of view is achieved.
    CAUTION: BE SURE THAT THE SCOPE IS MOUNTED A SUFFICIENT DISTANCE FROM YOUR EYE TO PREVENT CONTACT UNDER RECOIL.
  3. Next, rotate the scope so that the elevation knob is on top, the windage on the right side and the vertical and horizontal portions of the crosshair are aligned with the vertical and horizontal axis of your firearm.
  4. Carefully tighten the screws and double check that you have enough distance between your eye and the scope to avoid contact under recoil and that the scope’s vertical and horizontal is aligned with your firearm. For additional security, a drop of thread-locking fluid can be added to the screws before final

CMMG's WASP Barrel Finish
CMMGs WASP finish is a salt bath ferritic nitrocarburizing surface conversion process or more commonly referred to as nitriding. The nitriding conversion is applied to the barrel inside and out, along with the front sight base on their M4LE rifles and uppers. Nitriding offers improved wear, abrasion, and corrosion resistance when compared to hard chrome lining or phosphating. The benefits are not limited to only these attributes, nitriding also offers a lower coefficient of friction.

Unlike chrome lining where the chrome is built up on the surface, nitriding converts the surface with out the risk dimensional build up causing fitment and function issues. Nitriding is not an untested or unproven process; CMMG has been utilizing this process for over 2 years with our LE series of rifles. Similar processes have been used by European pistol manufactures to treat their barrels and slides for decades.
