I recently received this scope with a pistol I purchased, I would like to try and use it, but it came with no manual or instructions, and there are no batteries in the scope. So I have no idea what kind of batteries to buy. I tried google, but came up with nothing.

So I was wondering does any one here have any idea what kind of batteries this scope takes, or any idea where I might find a manual for it?

Thanks, Mike

Heres a pic of the scope in case it helps.

Those little batteries are all the same voltage, all that varies is diameter and thickness. Try the 123 -- if it fits, it's the correct battery. If not -- just find the one that fits physically and it'll work.

Went and bought some Duracell 123's this afternoon, got the sight working. Thank you for the help, Mike
