Which direction do I adjust my ARMS #40 if I need to move the POI to the right?
Thanks

Well my ARMS #40 must be retarded.

If I turn the knob in the direction the arrow tells me, (R = Right) the aperture moves to the left and so accordingly does the bullet.

Is this a known issue with this sight or is mine defective.

the aperture should move left for moving the shot to the right. (oppisate for which way you want the shot to move down range.)

Wrong.... minus five

You move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to move.
You move the front sight in the opposite direction you want the bullet to move.

My question pertains to my particular ARMS#40 sight knob markings.

Who cares? Just adjust the damn thing and be done with it!

Once you figure it out let me know how you like it, I'm getting ready to order one in the next day or so...

Another insightful answer. Thanks for the help.

Gee, let me see, I pay $100 for a sight and the knob markings are incorrect.
Like you wouldn't bitch if it was your sight.

The ARMS #40 I have is an older model with the A2 knob, I would assume the new ones are correct.
It is a great sight.

It isn't a big deal because it's just a BUIS. You will not be using the windage adjustment after you have the gun zeroed.

Did you install the sight backwards? (i.e. so it springs toward you instead of away from you).

BTDT. I deliberately installed mine backward when I had it on the front of my receiver (so I could mount my TA50-2 as far back as possible).

See Photos:
Old way (backward with TA60 mount for the TA50-2):


Current (with LaRue Mount):


It was the first thing I noticed when I went to zero it.

But thanks to LaRue Tactical I can now have my ARMS #40 (soon to be a KAC 600M) mounted at the rear of the receiver as the TA50-2 sits further back in the LaRue mount.

No prize for Forest.



If I can't get to the bottom of this, I'll get ahold of ARMS and see what they say.

FWIW,

My ARMS 38 is marked with the R and arrow pointing to the counter clock wise as you look at it from the left side of the receiver. When I rotate it counter clock wise, in the direction of the R, the sight moves to the right, like it should.

I'm here to learn? This whole discussion is SCARY!!

Maybe I shoulve chose different words for my question.
Do I move the aperature in the direction I want the POI to hit, or the opposite direction?
Thanks
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 12:57:18 PM EST
The rear aperature should move IN THE DIRECTION you want to move to the impact to.

So if you hit LEFT you move the aperature RIGHT.

That's right, uhh, I mean correct.
