Zeroing your Ar/M-16

Recommended Posts

It has been a few years since boot camp and all the drill instructor yelling has made me forget certain things from that time. Mainly the way to zero the front sight. I rememeber shooting at a very short distance (3-5yds?) and looking at the impact to verify if the post needed to go up or down. Can somebody share with me toe procedure or wher I can get it online?

36 yards for a 20" AR and standard 8/3 rear sight regulation (as opposed to NM threads or 6/3 which is found on some carbines). Fire groups of 3 or 5 at 8/3 setting. Triangulate group and adjust the rear for windage and the front for elevation. Don't adjust up/down from the rear. Fire another group and adjust again until you are close to point blank zero.

Not directed at us bro....he wanted the Marine Corps version of it...

The adjustments will be the same as pictured, it just looks like you use 25 yards instead of 36 (30 meters)
