I recently picked up a carry handle on the ee to cut down for a buis. I was getting some gear together yesterday to go shooting and noticed that the elevation knob had 3/6 on it instead of the usual 3/8. It also has a Z a few clicks past the 3/6 mark.

What do I have? Is it a p.o.s.? Any input is greatly appreciated.

Normal detachable A3 carry handles ARE marked 3/6 with the "z" a couple of clicks up. That "z" marking, is for setting the battle sight zero, from what I understand.

3/8 markings are only on the A2 fixed handles.

You can't. There screw had to be shortened to fit in the detachable handle so now there isn't enough room to have a 3/8.

BTW you realize the 6, 7, & 8 markings are only used for 'area fire' right?

DvlDog, why do you have a 20" flat top?
