I just acquired a Springfield Armory 4x14x56 scope; it has the internal leveling bubble, which I believe makes it a GenIII. It's slated to get mounted on my M14 as soon as I resolve some technical problems with mounting it. (I have a Leatherwood mount that I acquired with the scope, but there is this slight problem that the distance from the horizontal locating groove the top of the receiver ring on my receiver is .080" greater than the distance between the corresponding points on the mount. I'm still determining how best to solve this.)
What I don't have, though, is a user manual for the scope. I know, there's not a lot to know about a scope. But this particular scope has a somewhat complex reticle with ballistically-calibrated range bars and range estimating stadia, and I don't know what distance the range stadia are supposed to subtend. (I'm assuming 30 inches, but we all know about relying on unverified assumptions ... right?) And I don't know what else I don't know about the scope and its reticle.
Does anyone have a copy of the user manual for this scope? And if so, would someone be so kind as to scan the manual and post it somewhere as a PDF? It'd be much appreciated.

Thanks very much, Big44 :)

Looking at this, I see I was in error; ALL versions of the 4x14x56 appear to have the leveling bubble. Mine has neither the illuminated reticle nor the parallax-adjustable objective, making it a GenI.
