The sight is an Aimpoint M2, since I installed it I have also installed a 5X magnifier to use with it.

Can I get the link for the mil-spec trigger job. I did go out and spend the $1500 on a Smith & Wesson M&P 15T. After taking a look at all of the bells and whistles I desired; it seemed to make sense from a time and money perspective. However the one complaint is that the trigger isn't what I would like. But instead of drop another 2 to 3 bills on a trigger I thought I would give the "do it yourself" approach a try. Other than the trigger, the rifle has been absolutely reliable and accurate. Just looking for a little more control over a hundred yards.

It's actually an aftermarket trigger job for a factory trigger, not a "Mil-Spec" but it does work well. You might want to consider ordering a spare spring set from Brownell's before you do any work. Just in case.



Let me google that for you

I would also suggest bending the two tangs on the actual trigger spring up about 30 degrees, and cutting one of the legs off the hammer spring. On my trigger I took a polishing stone and cleaned up any two surfaces that touch, ie. the disconnector, the sear, the hammer. I have a couple of other tricks that were done to my trigger but they weren't my idea, so I'll send them to people in pm's if needed.

Did I just take this thread off topic again? Sometimes like the squirrels that I so love to shoot, I have a short attention span.

Default sighting in my PWA ar!

Howdy! I just put together an AR out of parts that were laying around. Where should the POI be at 25 yards. I have a limited shooting range til I can get to a shooting range. My new toy is an A1 and looks like the old SP-1! It functions perfect but I have to qualify the firearm at longer ranges. I was thinking 2" high @ 25 yards is rite but can't remember S***!

We need more info... distance you want for zero, barrel length, ammo... at least.

BTW, expect to be low at 25 yards.

Default A1 AR-15 sight in?

Well, I have a 20 inch barrel, 55gr. FMJ ammo, I want to be able to shoot out to 200 yards at ground hogs. I have POI @ 25 yards at 2" hi.

20" barrel and you can only site at 25 yards??

2" high might not be enough to be honest. I don't really know what a round coming out of that barrel is going to be doing at 25 yards mathmetically, but I know it is on the way UP.

At 200 yards? I have read, depending on your muzzle velocity, that 200 yards is the "even" point of the round. Meaning that is neither + of - in elevation.

It's math that needs more inputs I believe. Or an MIT student.

Sorry, no definitive answer for you...

Default AR-15 sight in

Thanks for the info , I'll just have to find a place to shoot @ 100 yards. The closest range is 60 miles away! There are alot of coyotes around here and I could risk an occaisional shot. I'll get on the Hornady web site to see where I should be @ 100 yards.
