Scope Question

    I just picked up a scope for my AR15 build and I went more on price and review than options. Let me start by saying that I don't have scopes for any of my other guns.

    Here's my question - what exactly is a reticle intensified scope? My scope takes batteries, and has a knob for "reticle illumination adjustment", but turning that knob doesn't seem to do anything to the view through the scope. I just looked around my garage and out the back door with it and no matter how I turned the reticle illumination adjustment knob, it didn't make any difference. I swapped out to another set of batteries, same deal.

    Can someone help me out here?

    Rick-it sounds like an illuminated reticle-should turn orange as you turn up the intensity. Also sounds as if its not working. Call the manufacturers customer care dept and start asking questions.

    Thanks Delmar. I'm sending it back tomorrow for a replacement.
