Hey folks looking for someone to check my math so to speak.

Other than changing the knob and elevating mechanism is there anything else I need to change a M4 Carry handle sight to a M16A4 carry handle?

Thanks,

Luke

You don't need to change anything: CARRYING HANDLE ASSEMBLY (M16A4, M4, M4A1) is part number 12951011. See Fig C-1-1 in TM9-1005-319-23&P (Change 7 or later). -- Chuck

Looking at it as we type, I think thats a glitch as M16s have 8/3 vs the M4 6/3 markings.

All Military detachable handles (M4, M4A1, M16A4) have the 6/3 markings. All Military fixed handles (m16A2, M16A3, early M4) have the 8/3 markings. No glitch at all.

Compare C-1A-1 (change 7) to C-8-1 (change 7), the detent ball may be the only common part. As noted all detachable M16A4 & M4 handles are marked 6/3. But note the index, the [i]upper wheel[/i], with the numbers, is interchangeable with several others including 8/3, 0 5 10 15, unmarked, and others. -- Chuck

I have a flat top shorty. What exactly do the 6/3 or 8/3 marks mean? What are the increments? Are they in downrange or what? I have no idea? I just zero it, and shoot it at the intended range.
