meters to 2400 meters in steps of 100 meters. Later sights were only
graduated to 2200 meters.
The sight has a battle sight that can be used while laying flat or
lifted up. The gradient tangent is accessed when the sight is lifted

Ready position is shown in the photo above.

(as shown in the photo above) and
rotate the safety clockwise as shown. To disengage push in with the
palm of your hand and rotate the safety counter clockwise.
