03. FAQ's

I’m having trouble seeing a clear picture. Is there anything I can adjust to fix this?

Yes! Before contacting us for an RMA for a blurry picture check that you have adjusted the eye piece. Riton’s Fast Focus Eyepiece is located at the ocular end of the scope distinguishable by its colored knurling. To adjust this eyepiece twist counterclockwise while looking at a white piece of paper or a blank wall until the reticle is clear.

How do I bore sight my Riflescope?

Place the rifle solidly on a rest and remove the bolt. Sight through the bore at a target approximately 25 yards away. Move the rifle and the rest until the target is visually centered inside the barrel. With the target centered in the bore, make windage and elevati8on adjustments until the reticle crosshair is also centered over the target. (If a laser bore sighting or any other similar device inside the bore was used, it must be removed before firing. An obstructed bore can cause serious damage to the gun and possible injury to the shooter.)

Can I use other mounts and rings with my Riton Riflescope?

You can use other mounts and rings for Riton Riflescopes, but we suggest using the high-quality rings and mounts that can be found on ritonoptics.com. Make sure you get rings or a mount that matches the diameter of your riflescope.

What are the torque specifications for Riton Optics?

We suggest always using the torque information from your rings to ensure the best fit without damage to your scope. Riton products require torqueing of 15-18in/lbs for rings and mounts

Do your products have a warranty?

Before contacting Riton make sure that you’ve done some troubleshooting. Most problems that are thought to be associated with your riflescope are actually mount problems. Make sure your mount is the right size and that the screws aren’t torqued too hard on the mount.

Our Warranty is Simple:

  • Riton Optics Lifetime warranty will cover all variable rifle scopes (non-electro-optics) and accessories, the 2-year warranty will cover electro-optics.
  • The Riton Optics warranties will cover all owners regardless of original purchaser.

  1. Raymond Klemmer

    1 primal 4-16×44 is a very good scope, I like everything about it, the optic is clear and for the price I paid you will not find a better scope. And as a retired military I really like the fact this is a veteran owned company. All that aside if your looking for a scope with a life time warranty and great quality you won’t be disappointed buying from Riton. “Go get some”

    P.S. I own two Riton scopes and am looking at a third.

  2. Steven Klix

    Recently purchased an 1 Primal 4-16×44 to sit atop my new prarie dog rig. Very reasonable price point, very good build quality, crystal clear glass. I would put it above my Vortex crossfire II and on par with my Vortex Viper. Excellent optics! 5 stars, would give it 6 outta 5 if that was an option.

  3. Karen

    I very like this product , it’s verey good quality scopes, and beautiful Scopes, I myself have two different models Riton scopes, on my rifles , and I don’t have any problem with my scopes, i will say I enjoy with my Riton scopes in shooting range. I all the time go shooting range for practice, and my two Riton scopes on my rifles working mazing. This company do very good Responsibility for Riton product. Officially thank you very much from Riton, Which one you make this kind of good quality products. ??? ?

  4. Andrew Castor

    Love this scope sold my vortex diamondback 4-16×44 hd for this scope. Sight in was a breeze. Putting 168 gr . 308 in the same hole at a 100 yards. And at 200 yards. Finally got to go hunting last week with it . First deer ? came out put up my rig down she went.

  5. Ted Neubauer

    This is an incredible scope that I mounted to my 6.5 Creedmoor. Outstanding crystal clear optic and rock-solid build. After ~60 rounds it is still holding a perfect zero. The warranty is unbeatable but with as solid as this scope is, I doubt I’ll ever need to use it. As an Army veteran I appreciate and will support the Riton brand. Looking for a red dot as my next Riton purchase. Thank you Riton!

  6. Darick Arnold

    Super clear scope. Very affordable. Best scope I’ve had so far. Does everything I need it to do. Easy to sight in. Love the adjustable zero stop.

  7. Darick Arnold

    The 4×16×44 is amazing. Does everything I need it to do. The adjustable zero stops a great. Very affordable. Super clear. Best scope I’ve owned so far.

  8. Kevin

    Absolutely love this optic! Fits great on my 17HMR and the reticle is stunning. Solid piece of glass, especially for the price. The reticle makes target acquisition (paper or for hunting) so easy. Would recommend this scope to anyone!

  9. Troy Way

    I spent 2 weeks testing 9 scopes and settled on the Riton 1 Primal 4-16×44. The three reasons for selecting this scope over Atibal, Burris, Vortex, Swift, etc. was the side focus adjustment, retical style and clarity, and warranty backed by a veteran/ law enforcement owned company. The build quality is second to none and I look forward to many more Riton purchases and support of your company.

  10. Kenneth D Bennett

    I just mounted it on a 6.5 creedmoor replacing a Vortex scope love the scope it is as clear scope I looked at. I target shoot so I like the adjustments on the scope. Very nice scope for the money.

  11. Keith M Shirota

    Excellent scope for hunting. Clear glass, precise turret adjustments, excellent reticle for hunting and great warranty. Better than the popular brands for the price point. Quality is seems hardcore for elements.

  12. Chris Stansfield

    Have 2 x 1 Primal 4 – 16 x 44 on my 300 wmag and 3006. Great scope, clear, love the parallax adjustment. Fantastic warranty, which looking at the quality will probably never need. I am now looking for a Riton scope to go on my muzzlelaoder. Appreciate the company being a British Military Vet myself. 100% recommend these scopes!

  13. johnathon solis

    Absolutely the best scope I’ve ever bought…. Everyone kept saying vortex but I tell you what this tops my buddy’s vortex !! Put it on my 6.5 Creedmoor and couldn’t be happier. I’ll buy these scopes all day long, won’t put anything else on any of my rifles now. Crystal clear, holds zero and supper tough feels like a tank of a scope. Recommend all day long !!

  14. Michael Smith

    This is a great scope, I love everything about it so far. The price is amazing for what you are getting.

  15. Don Croisetiere

    I recently purchased the Primal 4-16×44 scope for my CZ 457 Royal
    rifle and I must say WOW. The quality and build of this scope is second to none. Optics are amazing and over the top when compared against other competitors that have similar products with the likes of Luepold, Athlon, Burris and also Hawke. If you opt to purchase a Riton scope you won’t be disappointed..

  16. RJP

    I bought this 4-16x for a rimfire mag. I have used alot of quality scopes & I tell ya, this one can hold its own against scope costing 4x the price! Don’t believe it, just try one..
