If you want to use it, you just push the button on the left side of the scope tube and the Firedot comes on. If I have the setting set in the middle, I do believe when you turn it off and on it will stay at the setting. From their website...."MST (Motion Sensor Technology) automatically deactivates illumination after 5 minutes of inactivity, yet reactivates instantly as soon as any movement is detected" That's a pretty cool ;D I have Burris FastFire III on my turkey gun and I wish it had that feature.

nice feature and saves on the battery

my buddy just bought the Burris Elite for his .300. that thing has a lot of features. range finder built in is a nice feature. he paid for it though. $1200-1300 on sale. what do they say? "you can't put a price tag on good glass"

I will be to keep her recovery posted...LOL

This one is setup mostly for mooching or tracking here in NH and VT. I'm sure she will see plenty of  southern PA and WV deer drives. I'm pretty excited about this makeover and getting her tuned in. She'll be a good backup to my current rifle which has been temporarily out of service...not due to end of season either.

My Remington 700 had her makeover last winter but had an issue with the glass on her. I just sent it back and the company emailed me I'll see a new scope in about 24 days :'( I wasn't too thrilled with the "expert" I spoke with. He told me that my Talley rings and that I had them lapped was the reason my VX-3 wasn't dialing in ##$%#1119 It's all good though. They are great scopes, great customer service and they are making it right.







I did see when using Talley rings that when the ring was positioned close to the "power adjustment ring" that if it was over tightened it would "squish" the scope tube and make the power adjustment ring hard to turn.
