Riton/Element Optics 90mm Wheel Installation

Riton/Element Optics 90mm Wheel Installation

1. Identify the proper orientation of the adapter as shown in the images below. Matte side faces away from the scope… to the left if you are behind the airgun.

2. Carefully take apart the 2 halves of the scope wheel by inserting a 2.5mm allen key through the access hole but do not remove the screws, leave them in position as shown below.

3. (HELIX) Place the adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over both ridges.

 

3-1. (TITAN/NEXUS) Place adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over the two inner ridges.

 

4. Once adapter is situated correctly place top half with the screws in place. The matte side of the adapter and the flat side of the 90mm Wheel should be facing outward as in the image below.

5.Angle the smaller section as in the image below, insert and rotate downward to align with the top section and the adapter. Once seated gently hold the adapter in place with one finger.

   

6.With your 2.5mm allen key snug the screws to tighten the 90mm Wheel around the adapter. We recommend alternating between the 2 screws to tighten things evenly.

7. Tighten the screws until the gap between the 2 wheel halves is closed as in the image below. You can give them a slight turn further, but do not overtighten them.

Installation is complete.

  1. Identify the proper orientation of the adapter as shown in the images below. Matte side faces away from the scope… to the left if you are behind the airgun.

2. Carefully take apart the 2 halves of the scope wheel by inserting a 2mm allen key through the access hole but do not remove the screws, leave them in position as shown below.

     

2-1 If you have fully removed the screws, insert them into position through the eye shaped opening. Once in the hole give it a slight shake so it drops all the way in. (it also works to hold the wheel so the screw is upright and tap the bottom edge lightly against a hard surface.)

3. (HELIX) Place the adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over both ridges.

 

3. (TITAN/NEXUS) Place adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over the two inner ridges.

 

4. Once adapter is situated correctly place the half with the brass heat set inserts onto the adapter as pictured. Adapter, matte side out, parallax wheel flat side out.

5. Place second half of wheel with screws on adapter, again flat side out. Insert your 2mm allen key through the access hole to reach the screw and tighten each side down.

6.The screws should be snugged until the gap between the two halves is closed. You can give a very slight turn after the gap closes but do not over tighten them.

Installation is complete.

AEA Challenger Elite Barrel Band Install

AEA Challenger Elite Barrel Band Install

****PRIOR TO INSTALLING THE BLACK ARTS DESIGN BARREL BAND ENSURE YOUR AIR RIFLE IS UNLOADED AND IN A SAFE CONFIGURATION!!***** Make sure you have an established zero prior to installation.

***Tools needed – 2.5mm Allen Key***

1. Using a 2.5mm Allen Key remove the 3 M3 Screws, separate, and lay out the 7 components as shown in the photo below:

2. Place the bushings on the barrel. The silver coated bushing is closest to the muzzle followed by the gold coated bushing. The colored sides should both face the muzzle as in the photo below:

3. Install 1 half of the barrel band lining up the channels with the bushings. the silver arrow on the barrel band half MUST FACE TOWARD THE MUZZLE. Proper arrangement can be seen in the photo below:

4. Install the second half of the barrel band aligning it the same way as in step 3. Both silver arrows should be facing towards the muzzle. See image below.

5. Insert the 25mm M3 screw into the mid section of the barrel band and the 22mm M3 screws into either side of the bottom of the barrel band as shown in the images below

6. Get the threads started on all 3 screws… do not yet tighten them, just get the threads started. This will allow the barrel band to be slid into position as shown in the photo:

7. Snug up the mid section 25mm M3 screw until resistance is felt, then give it one full turn.

8. Snug up the 2 bottom M3 screws until resistance is felt. Alternate between the two screws, do not fully tighten them. Just until resistance is felt on both screws.

9. Now go back to the 25mm M3 Screw in the mid section and snug it up fully. ***DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN***. It does not require a lot of force to secure the barrel band. We use two fingers on the allen key to tighten all the screws, combined the 3 screws have a ton of holding force!

10. Fully snug the two 22mm M3 screws on the bottom, again ***Do not overtighten***. Alternate from one side to the other until they are snugged up.

11. Go back to the mid section 25mm M3 screw and snug it up completely. Again, it doesn’t take a lot of force to secure the barrel band. Just get it snugged down.

12. Go to the bottom screws one more time and snug them alternating between the two screws until both are snugged up.

13. Look at the bottom of the barrel band. There should be a gap as shown in the image below.

14. This completes the install. And you are ready to zero the rifle. If there is a large windage change to your zero (a minor change is not significant and should be adjusted with the scope) some twisting may have been instigated upon installation. If so, loosen the 25mm mid section screw, and gently re-center the barrel. Check that the windage error is corrected and re-tighten the mid section screw, double check the tension on the bottom two screws.

If you have any issues contact Black Arts Design for assistance.

 

 

AEA HP & SF series AR style Grip Adapter Installation

AEA HP & SF series AR style Grip Adapter Installation

1, Remove screw at base of factory grip.

2. Pull up on grip to remove from factory Grip frame.

3. For HP use M5 allen to remove M6 screw, For SF use M4 allen to remove M5 screw. ***DO NOT REUSE THIS SCREW WITH THE GRIP ADAPTER***

4. Remove factory grip frame.

5. Place Black Arts Design Grip Adapter at rear of trigger guard, ensure it is keyed to the back of the trigger guard.

6. Using the screw supplied from Black Arts Design insert and tighten. ***We recommend using a REMOVABLE LOW STRENGTH thread locker such as Vibra-TITE VC-3.***

7. Only use a 1/4×28 screw. We recommend 1 inch length to ensure maximum purchase area. Pre-inserting it into the grip can be helpful.

8. Position grip on grip adapter and gently seat it.

9. Carefully tighten the 1/4×28 screw ensuring not to cross thread it. If you feel unusual resistance back out and ensure the screw and threads are lined up properly. We recommend using either a star washer, or, a lock washer along with a flat washer.

10. Enjoy your new grip!

Avenger Bullpup Barrel Band Installation

  1. ****PRIOR TO INSTALLING THE BLACK ARTS DESIGN BARREL BAND ENSURE YOUR AIR RIFLE IS UNLOADED AND IN A SAFE CONFIGURATION!!***** Make sure you have an established zero prior to installation.
  2. Remove the thread protector, moderator, or sound suppression device.
  3. The silver arrows on the inside of the barrel band must point towards the muzzle. It helps to remove the fill probe cover to aid in installation. Carefully slip on the shroud section, with the two bushings, onto the shroud. It will be a tight fit. You can use a twisting motion to overcome the leading edge of the shroud.
  4. Align the Barrel Band with the air tube and slide it on. There should be resistance but not from the lower section. If the lower section will not slip on easily loosen the M3 screw a little further using a 2.5mm allen key.
  5. The barrel band can be fixed at any point along the barrel but not in contact with the fill probe cover or the plastic stock.
  6. Do not tighten the Barrel Band yet. We highly recommend shooting 10 to 20 shots to let the barrel band and rifle ‘settle’. Also take this opportunity to check your zero, elevation is not a concern at this point but if your windage has shifted drastically from your prior zero twist the barrel band very gently until your shots are centered.
  7. IMPORTANT:  DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!! Using a 2.5mm allen key carefully tighten the single M3 cap screw with a 2.5mm allen key ***Do not attempt to close the gap between the two sides, a gap should remain after snugging the screw***
  8. Zero your rifle and make any minor adjustments needed. If you have a large elevation or windage change repeat steps 2 through 8.

This completes the installation. The barrel band can lead to a shift from the pre-Barrel Band POI. Based on measurements taken from an unmodified factory rifle the barrel and air tube are not completely parallel with each other. Therefore, the location you place the Barrel Band can impact the degree of elevation change depending on where along the length of the air tube/barrel it is placed. However, any changes should be minor and easily rectified with a slight scope adjustment. If you have an extreme left or right POI shift ensure the Barrel Band is not skewed or ‘twisted’ and repeat steps 4 through 8.

Parallax Throw Installation

Parallax Throw Installation

  1. Identify the proper orientation of the adapter as shown in the images below. Matte side faces away from the scope or out.

2. (HELIX) Place the adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over both ridges.

 

2. (TITAN/NEXUS) Place adapter onto Parallax knob as shown in picture, ensure the contours of the adapter are aligned with the contours of the Parallax knob, and is centered over the two inner ridges.

 

3. Once adapter is situated correctly place the half with the brass heat set inserts onto the adapter as pictured. Adapter, matte side out, Throw flat side out.

4. Place second half of throw on adapter, again flat side out, insert the M3 cap screws and tighten them alternately until there is no gap between the parts. Once the gap is closed simply snug them up. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.

 

5. The throw is designed to be used as a tactile zero stop. By setting the parallax at a known distance and then installing the parallax throw with the long arm pointing in a specific direction, for example aligned with the elevation turret, a shooter can easily return to this known parallax setting without breaking from their sight picture. No need to look out of the scope to read the numbers on the side. If this setting needs to be changed simply loosen the throw and reset the position of the throw.

AEA Zeus (Gen 2) .72/.58, and Challenger Pro Barrel Band Installation

AEA Zeus (Gen2) .72 & .58. and Challenger Pro Barrel Band Installation

The Zeus Barrel Band is designed to be a tight fitting part. There are rubberized bushings in the barrel section. They are designed to allow a very close tolerance fit as well as provide some dampening effect.

It is best to have an established zero prior to installation of the barrel band. This is the only way to verify any large change in windage or elevation. There should be very little change in elevation or windage. But, if any twist was instigated upon the installation there may be a significant windage change. If this occurs see notes at end.

**MAKE SURE THE RIFLE IS IN A SAFE CONFIGURATION BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION**

  1. There are silver arrows on the inner diameter of the air tube section. These arrows must point toward the muzzle end of the rifle.
  2. The Barrel thread protector can be on or off, off seems to aid on getting the Barrel Band slipped over the end of the barrel. Carefully ease the barrel band over the end of the barrel or thread protector. If needed, you can rotate the barrel band back and forth to assist in getting it started onto the barrel.
  3. Once the top portion is on the barrel itself, align the lower portion with the air tube. It takes some finesse to get it over the fitting at the end of the air tube. Push it on by alternating movement from the top and then the bottom of the barrel band. Ease it onto the air tube carefully.
  4. We recommend setting it close to the middle of the white lettering near the end of the air tube. However, the Barrel Band can be affixed at any location the user prefers.
  5. Try to ensure you have not instigated twisting during installation. You can slide it back and forth several inches a few times to get it re-centered.
  6. IMPORTANT:  DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!! Using a 2.5mm allen key carefully tighten the cap head screws alternating from left to right until they are snug. Do not overtighten.
  1. You are ready to zero the rifle.

If there are large windage changes to your zero, a minor change is not significant and should be adjusted with the scope, some twisting may have been instigated upon installation. If so, loosen the 2.5 mm screws, and gently re-center the barrel. Check the zero and then tighten the barrel band. Again, check zero.
