Default Vortex Razor Gen 2, Lens Cap Rubber Question (trim or not?)

I have the scope rifle are synchronized (level) togather. But the rupper on the rear lens cap interferes with the reticle focus ring. I know once the reticle is focused for my eye that it doesn't need to be focused again. So my question is, should I trim the rubber back to uncover the focus ring, or just leave it?





A couple images of my leveling setup:

I would leave it as is. It may help to keep the reticle focus ring form accidentally moving.

Once the diopter is adjusted to get the reticle focused, you shouldn't ever need to touch it again.

Yeah, I'll leave it be, thanks fellow gunners.

Thanks Brush Guard, it is a new rifle. My first though was that the blue protection tape was to prevent rubbing the finish during shipment. It came in a thick blue bag stenciled BARRETT repeatedly, in big block letters. The bag was inside this Barrett case, which was inside the shipping box.

Now I think the shop in Arizona that installed the Cali compliant AR Maglock may have put that on to prevent scratching during the AR Maglock installation. It is similar to the protection film that is seen on cell phone screens, or shinny finished electronic appliance surfaces.

Oh, got it. So the rifle came with the blue film, not installed by you. Good to know, before some of the crew starts up with the carpet jokes.

On a side note, the Vortex instruction manual states adjustment of the recital focus ring is normally not necessary, but may be necessary as one’s eyes change over time.

Probably another 30 years down the raod…..
