Anyone know where I can buy the 25m zero target the US Army/Marine Corp uses? It's listed in FM 23-9 as: "25m zero target NSN 6920-01-167-1392"

I got something very similar from Bushmaster, the grid is the same but it doesn't have the E-type silhouette in the middle, more of a "n" shape which is harder to aim at.

Before anyone suggests pilfering some from the local base, I live in the UK so that's not an option.

I don't know where you might find the targets butTheMarylandAR15ShootersSite has instructions on zeroing at 25 meters.

Hopefully someone will pipe in with info on the targets you're after.

the Marine Corps does not use the 25m target. we use a 30m target, or is it 30yds. anway the army zero's 25/200 and we zero 30/300 or at least thats how it was last time i fired the KD course.

It says in the M16A2 manual that came with my rifle (the official military issue TM9-1005-319-10) that the USMC use the 25m zero target and it gives copious instructions on how to use it together with pictures. In fact I even have a book showing them zeroing their rifles with it!

Here is a scan I made of mine. Let me know if you need zeroing instructions. It should print out in actual size.

Here's one you can print out and make copies. It fits on a 8.5"x11" page.

After visiting the Zeroing Methods page to learn HOW to zero. Then visit the Documents section to download the 25M targets for the M16A4 & the M4 (they have different grids). We also have the 50 yard zeroing targets posted there as well. Plus others..

Come on membership is free and you get to download all this cool stuff.....(If you have a PDA you should see the software & documents we have available for downloading....)

Okay I was able to print out the 25m target on 8.5x11 paper and now want to blow it up on a copier to full size.

How large is the target left to right border and top to bottom border?

Thanks in advance

Jack19, I just use the 8.5"x11" paper as is. That's approximately the same size as the original. May be off by a millimeter or two, depending on how your printer scales, but close enough for government work.

Big Bear, thanks much.

Using the above gif, I scaled it to 25% and centred it on 8.5x11 paper and it was absolutely bang on for size. I'm not clear on whether the grid is supposed to be 1cm squares or 9mm squares (my Colt manual says 9mm but everyone else says 1cm), however the circle in the middle is definitely supposed to be 4cm in diameter and scaled to 25%, it was bang on 4cm. The squares are 9mm across at this size, so I think my Colt's manual is right.
