Does anybody have an image of what the proper sight picture (A2 iron sights) should be? Also, with handguns, I use both my eyes. Should I be doing this with my AR too? Thanks, Chimborazo.

I couldn't find a picture for the A2 sight picture, but I found one that very closely resembles it. It says it's for the M1 ( I don't own one) but it looks almost the same to me. The picture on the left is what you want to duplicate. The picture on the right has the front sight tip just below center mass. What I do is put the front sight tip on center mass of what I'm shooting at. Either way works. Hope that helps. If you can't click on that link, just cut and paste it into your address bar. I'll try and correct it. About the eyes. Keeping them open might work from 0-75 yards, but any distance farther than that I have to use one eye.

"The CLEAR tip of the front sight post, centered in the rear sight aperture." Halfway up, and left to right. Your focal point is the tip of the front sight post. Trust your eyes to center the front sight in the rear ap. Lew

"SIR, place the clear tip of the front sight post half way up and centered left to right in the blurry rear sight aperture, SIR."
