Just got a killer deal on a 4-16x56,it was a promo but had no instruction manuel.I'm looking to buy a copy or if someone would be kind enough to e-mail or send me a copy!
 
I called Zeiss but they are really screwed up about the Hennies.Person in Technical said he would try & find a copy or send a zerox version but it didn't sound possitive.
 
Zeiss is a great company, nothing but good experiences with them over the years,I can't for the life of me figure why they would be so laxidasical about their top scope.
 
In any event any help would sure be appreceited.Shoot me an E for my address.
 
 
                                                       Thanks

If it is a 4-15, I can tell you why you got such a good deal!

I'll try to find my book and scan it, have a home project under way, it might take a week or so, but I'll give it a try.

Great scope, clarity is fantastic, eye box is unreal.

Bingo,Bingo Bingo.....The kind people @ Hudisco found a book,it's being sent out today!
 
FYI: They sold the company to Zeiss about a year ago.Nathan is now working for Zeiss also.I had always thought that Zeiss was the owner of Hensoldt.I  guess old dogs can stll learn a thing or 2.
 
Again much thanks guys.

Zeiss is and has been the owner of Hensoldt... Nathan owned the rights to Hensoldt sales and the company HUdisco in the US.  At one time, Hensoldt was only sold to military/LE.  Nathan was a "ground breaker" in getting the scopes sold to lowly civilians in the US.  He works for Zeiss now, but still operates Hensoldt sales in the US for Zeiss... rather than owning the business, he is an employee and probably has more benefits.  He is a great guy.  All my dealings with him have been positive... 
I only know what I read in a couple of magazines lately about the sale of Hudisco to Zeiss, but that is close to the "rest of the story"....

Is there something we should know about this scope?
