Hi guys, I own several scopes but have never really studied up on them. Anyway, I picked up a Photonic IDF surplus scope and can find no info on it. Is there a manual, parts breakdown, instructions available? I can find no diopter adjustment and it seems the turrets rely on orings as friction washers? Is all this correct? Thanks.

Is it a 6x40? or 6x42?  6x40 was called Nimrod and it was Japanese made.  6x42 was made by Kahles, I think, but I thought it had an adjustable eyepiece.

I've never seen a manual or a parts list for one.  Friction adjustments sound about right.

It's a 6x42. Looks like a Kahles ZF95 with the exception of the markings and the diopter adjustment.
