The Acura RS25i is a magnified optical system, do not look at high intensity light sources such as the sun through the RS25i.
When mounting the scope to a rifle you must provide sufficient eye relief to prevent contact with the eye during recoil, especially during high (incline or decline) angle shooting.
Only use a CR2032 Battery as a power source for your Acura RS25i.
Keep your Acura RS25i out of reach of children.
It is recommended your RS25i be installed onto your rifle by a competent gunsmith. When mounting the scope:
Do not mount the scope rings onto the bellhousing, turret saddle, or ocular assembly.
Do not exceed a clamping force of 2800 lbs on the main tube of the rifle scope. Generally, scope rings with four clamping screws require a torque of 18 in-lbs (2.0 Nm) on each screw to exceed this specification.
After mounting the scope on your rifle, safely aim at a light colored object (to avoid myopia), set the magnification to 25x, and the parallax to the infinity setting.
Adjust the diopter focus ring until the reticle image within the scope is clear. Allow your eye to relax by closing your eye, or looking away from the eyepiece. Repeat the adjustment of the diopter with a relaxed eye to ensure the reticle is clear when first viewed in the scope.
The RS25i features the RH2 First Focal Plane reticle for consistent reticle sub tensions throughout the entire magnification range, which simplifies shooting corrections when the action is fast.
The Wind Assist™ Icons featured on each side of the reticle offer reliable, intuitive wind corrections. Simply identify the direction the wind is moving to (left or right) and count the hold on the same side as the Wind Assist Icon arrows. For example, a wind to the left, results in a hold "on" the left side of the reticle.
The Subtensions of the RH2 reticle are designed to be a simple, accessible, uncomplicated long range reticle. For the MOA reticle, all hash spacing is set at 1 MOA. The 4 MOA bars increase in size the further from the center to guide your eye to the center, and provide for quick height estimation. A full ranging scale is provided in the lower left of the scope view . The prominent vertical post is located 4 MOA below the center crosshairs for quick holdover correction or aiming at low magnification.
Short press the Reticle Illumination Button on the parallax turret to turn the illumination on or change the brightness level. The brightness level increases with each short press beginning at level 1 and increasing to level 10. Once the brightness level is set at level 10 the brightness levels will decrease with each short press, from level 10 to level 1.
Press and hold the Reticle Illumination Button to turn off the illumination.
To install or replace the battery, unscrew the Battery Cover from the Parallax turret.
Remove the CR2032 battery by pressing down on one side of the battery. Lift the battery out of the battery cage from the opposite side that was pressed down.
Install the CR2032 battery with the positive terminal facing out by pressing the coin battery into the battery cage. Reinstall the Battery Cover ensuring the cover is secure to provide a watertight seal.
Adjusting the Parallax
Prior to adjusting the parallax ensure the diopter adjustment is set to provide a clear reticle image.
With the scope and rifle in a stable position and safely aimed at a distant object, adjust the parallax turret until the object is in focus.
Without moving the scope and rifle, slightly move your eye and head side to side and up-down. If the reticle appears to move with head movement, continue to adjust the parallax until the reticle does not move.
Ensuring parallax is eliminated will provide the most accurate configuration for long range shooting. The presence of parallax can introduce variation in the reticle alignment to the intended target.
The markings on the parallax turret provide an approximate parallax adjustment at given distances. The diopter and parallax settings in combination with each individual user’s eyesight can vary the parallax adjustment required for parallax free magnified optics.
Magnification Ambi-Throw Lever™
The Magnification Ambi-Throw Lever ™ can be adjusted in 25 positions to allow full magnification range adjustments without interfering with other components of your rifle systems, such as the bolt travel.
A 3/32” (2.5mm) allen wrench is provided to adjust the Ambi-Throw Lever ™.
Loosen the lever set screw (until the head of the screw is shown).
Reposition the lever in the desired detent location, and tighten the set screw. Do Not exceed 2.65 in-lb (0.3Nm).
The windage turret of the RS25i is capped to prevent inadvertent adjustments. Once the cap is removed the turret features 50 MOA (14.5 mil) of travel. The turret is marked for left and right windage adjustments up to 12.5 MOA in each direction per revolution (25MOA/rev, 10 MIL/rev). Each revolution is marked by the vertical line of the raising turret. The click value of the elevation turret is 0.25MOA/click (0.1MIL/click).
A 1/16” (1.5mm) allen wrench is provided to adjust the windage turret. Once the desired zero position of the turret is set:
Use the allen wrench to loosen the three (3) set screws on the windage turret.
Rotate the turret back to the zero mark.
Tighten the set screws and replace the zero cap. Do Not exceed 2.65 in-lb (0.3Nm).
The elevation turret is a precise, robust, and accurate raising turret to provide straightforward adjustments and sharp haptic click response.
The 1st revolution of adjustments are presented in MOA or MIL, while the 2nd revolution is configurable with MOA, MIL or a custom Ballistic Data RingTM which integrates into the Revic Ecosystem for perfect accuracy at Long Range.
The elevation turret provides 80 MOA (23 mil) of travel with 25 MOA (10 mil) per revolution. Each revolution is marked by the horizontal line of the raising turret. The click value of the elevation turret is 0.25 MOA/click (0.1 MIL/click).
The interchanging Ballistic Data Ring ™ (BDR) allows for the RS25i to quickly be configured for multiple ammunition loads. The BDR provides the ballistic profile information as well as the ballistic drop compensation (BDC) on each ring.
To swap the BDR
Unthread the cap of the elevation turret, and remove the adjustment knob and BDR.
Install the BDR or MOA/MIL turret ring and align the index with the detent on the turret.
Re-install the adjustment knob and cap.
A 1/16” (1.5mm) allen wrench is provided to adjust the elevation turret.
Zeroing the Scope
The RS25i elevation turret provides a tool-less zero setting and adjustable zero stop.
To set the zero:
Unthread the cap of the elevation turret keeping the adjustment knob and 2nd revolution ring in place.
