Toggle reticle dimmer, is the name of it. Theres no default button.

I believe the default is Ctrl-D. It should work on all planes equipped with telescopic gunsights (D3A1, Ki-43-I, SBD, Ki-27, early Buffalos...).

Thanks, it is Ctl D, open/close. I tried toggle rectile dimmer but that only works on bomber bomb sights as I understand it and not on the MG sights.... the Norden version I used in Nam allowed us to turn the brightness down so we could see the target spot , it was usually less than 1 meter across... as the glare ( grid was in orange-yellow highlignt) at full contrast/brightness was pretty "hot" , none the less thanks again all !!!
