Question about BSA Shadow Red Dot Scope

Open Question

My BSA Red Dot RD30SB scope problem is that the dot keeps fading. I have to turn the brightness dial slightly to get it to brighten up again. It has only been used on a High Point 9mm carbine, so it hasn't been shocked by recoil. Any suggestions?

How do adjust the scope on an airsoft gun?

For magnified scopes and plain old red dot sights, there are usually two dials you adjust - one for up and down, one for left and right.
My ACOG replica and BSA red dot sights require a small flat head to be able to adjust said dials. Most sights follow the same thing, aside from holo sights which have buttons that don't require tools.

My red dot scope battery seems to have run out of juice; what can of battery does it take and how do I replace the battery.

The battery is located under the larger ring dial. Use a coin or screw driver while holding the ring and remove the battery cover. Take note of the battery position + and - you can read the type numbers once out. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

I recently recieved a BSA Radiant 3x9x40IR rifle scope with no manual. How do you turn the power on/off or do you have to remove the battery?

Most, by far, the majority of these types of scopes with electronice dots, or other enhancements requiring a battery are turned off when you return the power setting to zero ( 0 )
This is regardless of the manufacturer.

And almost all of the time the power control is integrated in to either the top or side turret, or adjustment knob.

Also most of the time the battery is a # 2032 which is flat and about the shape of a quarter / $.25.00. They last indefinitley until you forget to turn off the power!

hope this helps!
