wheel on the right side is actuated until the required

range is indicated on the yard scale ring (the sight

remaining stationery

The range indicator is fitted to the right side close to the

hand wheel and consists of a yard and degree scale

ring graduated on its face in hundreds of yards to

6200 yards with readings by means of a pointer for every

50 yards, the periphery of the ring is graduated up to

16 degrees with readings for every 10 minutes
