Hello,
   I'm new to quality scopes and new in here as well.  SWFA directed me here to beg a drop of wisdom from the collected Operators.  Currently there is no manual for this scope.  I wonder if someone can tell me the corrrect procedure to slip the turrets?  I don't want to loosen that hex key too much and end up with a sproing.  I was expecting the three hex keys around the rim as described on Sniper Central, but that is for the non HD model.  I guess it's loosen the one and pull the turret away from the scope tube.  How many turns to loosen.  What happens if I remove that center hex key?  Also, at some point I'll need to clean the lenses.  What is the correct liquid to use that is safe for the coatings?  Thank you all in advance.

Unscrew the Hex key. Once you do so the turrett will slip off. The Hex screw is made to take the turret on and off for Re Zeroing the knob. Just a lens cloth and lens cleaner or jewelry cleaner will work fine for cleaning.

While it is not spring loaded there is a little rubber washer to loose so be aware of the little black washer.

Wes, are you color blind?

Green stock.
brown action and mounts.
black scope?

It looks like the bipod might be green too.

I hope she's a shooter, 'cause the colors is all wrong.

Doublechaz, no fear on taking the turrets off, they come off with ease and go back the same.

It is a fine scope.

It appears you shoot on a large bean bag made from old jeans, yes?

Use what you brought = old jeans pants legs filled with corn can be a good rest, and not near as heavy as sand.
