The Ultra Shot R-Spec offers 10 daytime brightness settings. Settings 1 through 5 are best for
outdoor environments. Settings 6 - 8 are best for indoor environments, and settings 9 and
10 are best for low light environments.
To adjust the brightness:
- Press the brightness control button (5) to adjust the brightness of the dot. Each press of the
button will adjust the brightness to the next lower level. Brightness levels adjust from high
to low. Note: The last brightness setting used prior to deactivation will be the same setting next time the unit is activated.
The Ultra Shot R-Spec offers four different reticle patterns.
To select the desired reticle:
1. Locate the reticle selection knob (9) on the rear of the unit. Reticle symbols on the knob
indicate the design selection.
2. Move the reticle selection knob left or right to change the pattern. The knob will click in
place with each reticle selection. Align the reticle pattern of choice with the notch on the
rear of the sight.
Note: After zeroing your reticle, a small shift in point of impact will occur if another reticle design
is selected. This is not a defect and an inherent result due to the mechanical rotation of the reticle
selection knob. The sight will need to be zeroed to the new reticle selection.
The Ultra Shot R-Spec is designed to mount to picatinny rails only. For safety, it is best to have at least three to four inches of eye relief.
1. To loosen the mount, open the quick detach lever (8).
2. Attach the Ultra Shot to the firearm’s picatinny rail. Make sure the recoil bolt (6) is positioned in the groove of the rail.
3. Make sure the Ultra Shot is properly engaged with the firearm’s base and close the lever completely. The lever should be closed to its original position.
4. Check that the Ultra Shot is secured tightly in position and is not shifting forward or backward. If the mount is too loose the sight will not hold zero. To prevent this, the mount must be tightened.
5. To adjust tension on the mount, remove the Ultra Shot from the firearm. Leave the lever in the closed position. On the opposite side of the lever is the tension nut (7). Using the included wrench tool rotate the nut to tighten or loosen the mount. Clockwise rotation of the nut will increase tension and tighten the mount. Counterclockwise rotation will decrease tension and loosen the mount. Mount the Ultra Shot again to confirm the sight is securely mounted.
OPERATING THE WINDAGE AND ELEVATION ADJUSTMENTS:
The Sightmark Ultra Shot R-Spec has built-in windage and elevation adjustments (2) with
audible clicks. The adjustments are slotted and can be adjusted with a coin or flathead
screwdriver. The click value is 1 MOA meaning each click moves the point of impact 1” at 100
yards or ½” at 50 yards.
In order to make windage and elevation adjustments:
1. Use a coin or flathead screwdriver to make adjustments or “clicks”.
2. Turn the adjustments in the appropriate direction needed to change the point-of-impact
as indicated by the “UP” and “R” arrows marked next to the adjustments. For elevation adjustment, turn the adjustment counter-clockwise to adjust the bullet’s point of impact up. Turn the adjustment clockwise to adjust the bullet’s point of impact down. For windage adjustments, turn the adjustment counter-clockwise to adjust the bullet’s point of impact left. Turn the adjustment clockwise to adjust the bullet’s point of impact right.
BORESIGHTING & SIGHTING IN:
Boresighting and test firing should be performed safely on a firing range. Laser boresights
are a quick and accurate method for sighting in. Below is listed the traditional method of
boresighting and works best when the unit is mounted on a rest.
1. When mounting the sight on a bolt action rifle, remove the bolt; or when mounting to
a semi-automatic rifle, disassemble the rifle until there is a straight line of sight through
2. Use a target at least twenty-five yards to fifty yards away when sighting in the sight. Look through the bore of the weapon and locate the bull’s-eye of the target.
3. Sight in the target through the bore and then make windage and elevation adjustments (see “Operating Windage and Elevation Adjustments” for instructions) to the sight until the reticle is centered on the bull’s-eye. To verify the sight is accurately sighted in, always fire a three-shot test group at 50 or 100 yards preferably using the same ammo manufacturer, grain, and lot number.
4. After firing a group use the center of this grouping and make the necessary amount of adjustments to the elevation and windage adjustments to move your firearm’s grouping to the center of the target.
5. Again fire a three-shot test group to confirm the adjustments. Use the center of the new group to determine final adjustments.
OPERATING THE SIDE-MOUNTED LASER FOR DUAL SHOT MODELS:
The built in 5mW laser is used for target acquisition in close range, rapidly changing environments. The laser has built-in windage and elevation adjustments (13) that allow the laser to be accurately sighted in with your rifle.
To operate the laser:
1. Locate the laser on/off switch (12).
2. Push the button located on the back of the switch to turn the laser on.
3. Push the button again to turn the laser off.
The pressure pad (15) needs to be screwed onto the jack (14) until firmly attached (do not overtighten)
To operate the laser with pressure pad:
1. Screw the pressure pad onto the pressure pad jack (14)
2. Once attached, push continuously down on the pressure pad to turn on the laser.
3. Release pressure from the pad to turn the laser off.
Warning: NEVER point the laser designator directly at, or into, someone’s eye. This may cause damage to the eye or blindness. Avoid looking directly into the laser. Avoid shining the laser into mirrors or other reflective surfaces.
Note: due to visual restrictions of 5mW lasers at greater distances in daylight, the most effective application is for close range/ CQB scenarios. Shooters should evaluate the recurrent range targets acquired in their scenarios and sight the laser to their firearm’s point of impact at that range.
Proper maintenance of the Sightmark Ultra Shot is recommended to ensure longevity. It is recommended that when the sight becomes dirty that it is wiped down with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Blow dirt and debris off all optics and then clean lenses with a lens cleaning cloth. To remove oils or dried water spots, apply a small amount of denatured alcohol to a lens cloth or cotton swab. Clean the surface of the objective lens (1) or LED aperture (10) and let dry. Finally use your breath to clean the lens once more. No further maintenance is required. Do not attempt to disassemble any components of the sight.
Proper maintenance of the laser is recommended to ensure longevity. To clean off dirt, debris or oils from the laser’s aperture, first make sure the battery is removed to prevent laser activation. Apply denatured alcohol to the cotton swab first and using small circular motions clean the laser’s lens with the cotton swab. Allow the alcohol to evaporate. Afterwards, use your breath to fog the lens. Immediately afterwards use a new cotton swab to clean the lens again to remove any residue. No further maintenance is required.
Make sure that your Sightmark Ultra Shot is securely attached to your rifle before storing, and be sure that the reticle illumination is turned off. Cover with the included neoprene cover. Remove the batteries if the unit will be stored for an extended period of time.
Before handling the Sightmark Ultra Shot read and understand the contents of your firearm’s manual, and the Sightmark manual. Follow all standard safety precautions and procedures during firearm operation, even when the reflex sight is not in use.
• Avoid hitting or dropping the unit
• ALWAYS check that the chamber of your weapon is clear before mounting or dismounting the reflex sight.
• The reticle illumination should be tested during periods of non-use to make sure it is still operating properly. Failure to follow standard firearm safety precautions and procedures, as well as the above warnings, is dangerous and may result in serious injury, damage to property, or death.
Proper authorization is required before shipping any product back to Sightmark. Failure to obtain authorization could result in your product being returned to the wrong address, lost, or damaged. Sightmark is not liable for products returned without authorization.
Sight does not hold zero:
1. Verify the sight is mounted securely to the rifle. If the sight can be shifted in any direction, tighten the mounting tension nut according to the mounting instructions but do not over tighten. The sight will need to be re-zeroed afterwards.
2. Be sure to use factory-loaded ammunition of the same bullet type, weight, and, preferably lot number when sighting in.
The reticle does not illuminate:
1. Check that the battery is in working order and that the polarity of the battery is correct.
2. Check that there is no residue, film, or corrosion on the battery contacts that may be preventing the reticle from illuminating.
3. Check that the contact springs in the battery compartment are not bent.
4. Make sure there is no object blocking the light path between the LED aperture (10) and objective lens (1).
The reticle is blurry and not in focus:
1. Decrease the brightness level of the reticle. The halo or fuzzy appearance is caused by excess illumination than is
required for the current environment the sight is being used in.
2. Make sure the objective lens and LED aperture is clean and does not have any film, fingerprints, or debris covering the surface. Blow off any debris or dirt covering the lens. Use a lens cloth or cotton swab dipped in alcohol to remove any film or fingerprints.
3. If you are testing the product at a close range, 5 yards or less, to verify its on/off operation the eye will accommodate and focus either on the sight’s reticle or the target you are observing not both. Test the product beyond 5 yards and focus your eye on the target, then the reticle and target should be in focus.
4. If you are near-sighted the reticle will appear blurry without corrective vision (glasses, contacts). The reticles are parallax fixed at a distance of 25 yards depending on the model. This is the same as looking at an object at that distance. Without proper corrective vision for near-sighted users, the reticle will always appear blurry.
The reticle illumination turns off while firing:
1. Make sure any internal contact springs are not bent. Tighten the battery cap with a coin or flathead screw driver so the cap is fully seated.
