It has the combat reticle. Optics appear fine and it is built like a T34 tank. Found an explanation of how the reticle is used. My question involves the illumination feature. It has a standard 3V watch battery, same as my Mamba and IOR. The problem is that it's not very bright. In fact in normal daylight you cannot even see if it is turned on. I have heard there is an LED fix for this but emails to Kalinka are never answered and they have no phone listed.
Anybody run across this and have the "fix" ?
Thanks!

Being this is a european the scope it could be set up for using NV. Are you sure the battery is good. Sometime even new batteries can be bad. Normally you see people wanting less illumination for low light.  This can be done sometimes with a lower voltage battery of the same size class.
