This battery was installed exactly per the instruction manual. The + on top the battery was facing up. I didn't want to exert too much pressure on the battery cap because I didn't want to over stress the copper connector in the mount or cross thread the battery cap.
Avvidclif, installing the Crimson Trace optics on the S&W you bought from me was much easier than this Vortex so far.

I finally got the battery cap installed last night. It required considerable downward pressure to start the process. The cap had more resistance screwing down than I expected. I was careful to make sure the cap started on correctly and didn't over tighten. When the battery dies I will remove the cap. If the threads are stripped, the whole optic will go into the trash. I will go back to the time tested method of sighting in a pistol, the open sights.

Was this the old cap, or the new one?
