I know this is really going to show my AR inexperience, but can anyone describe the correct sight picture for the A2 peep sight. AS in, when I am looking down the site at a target how should everything line up. A picture would be even more helpfull if anyone has one.

Thanks

Center mass or 6 o'clock hold? Its your choice.

The illustration is essentially correct, but replace the human figure with the black center ring of a paper target...when your sights are "squared up"...and you visually "touch ' the top of the front sight pin on the BOTTOM of the bullseye...then, all your shots should center in the black...this is done so, your target isn't obscured by the front sight pin itself at longer ranges...another way: at 100 meters, touch the bottom of the pop can with the front sight,,,gently squeeze the trigger and it flies away! easy as pie...

That is assuming you are using the 6 o'clock hold. If you use the center-of-mass hold (which is what the military teaches - and that image shows) then the top of the front sight would bisect the circle.

I disagree.....a center mass "hold" should always be used. If you have a correct BZO, then you should be able to aim and hit center mass with the correct elevation settings employed. Call your shots...... JH94

In BASIC I was taught center of mass.

ok ok, now I am a bit confused. Specifically what is the difference between a 6 o'clock hold and a center mass hold. Thanks again for all the replys.

I disagree with Troy AND Jarhead: A center of mass hold is correct! [NI]
