Re: red dot scope?
there are two small turrets one on the top and one on the righthand side, these are windage and elevation just like all scopes.
There is usually a third turet on the top, with numbers around the outside edge.0-11. these are for the red dot. "0" is OFF. 1 is small light and 11 is max light. The battery is a flat CR2032 like arrow said. It is under that third top turret. the top turret lid screws off, and the battery just pops out.
Batteries are cheap so I always keep a spare taped to the tube of the scope.
Try it you will like it, great for early morning and evening. I have them on my slug gun, x-bow and some pistols.
Red dot sighting devices come in two types. Most are 1x, meaning no magnification. in recent years there are now 2x and 3x. these seem to "dance" around for me. So all of mine are 1x.
Some models let you dial in different "dots" color etc. Simmons is not the top of the line and I doubt you will have this feature.
