I attempted to zero my bulgarian ak-74 with tech-sights today. I know there is mixed feelings about these, but I like the aperture sight, and I was pleasantly surprised with the performance. I was shooting consistently 1.5-2.5 MOA groups. The problem is I am still about 6 inches high from center at 100 yds with the elevation on my rear sight at the bottom. I already have an adjustment tool for the FSP en route with some more ammo and mags, but the tip of the sight is already quite a bit above the center of the sight protectors, and I am concerned that adjusting it to get my groups to center will have the post too high. My question is, is this even an issue? Or is there a replacement post that might alleviate this to an extent? or am I just overthinking things?
never used the tech sites, but I wouldn't want my post that high, the ears are there to protect the post. And you've maxed out the rear?
Yeah, the rear is bottomed out. And i have a feeling i might be overreacting on this since i haven't been able to adjust the FSP. But if i can get things centered and the post is parallel with the blades i won't be too upset as it won't block much sight picture, i just don't want it sticking out.
