T-Marks

T-Marks What do I do with em? I know its a stupid question, but I really have no clue what to do. Its the flat top that came on my Del-Ton Upper with with this Del-Ton, Inc. AR-15 Flip Up Rear Sight.

What is the correct procedure to get it properly sighted in.

Thanks

T Marks help you index an attatchment back to its original place if you remove it and choose to reinstall it. For example, if you have an EOTeck on your flat top, and you take it off, if you choose to reinstall it, you can put it back on to the same T-mark and you should be pretty close to zeroed again.

You see, the problem is this.... I don't know which damn mark to put my new flip up sight on the first damn place.

Anyone want a never fired AR-15. I might be too stupid to own it.

It really doesn't matter. I put mine as far back as it goes so my Eotech will fit, and because I like it there.

As for sighting it in...I just left my front sight as is, and eyeballed the rear and put it in the middle. I was close enough at 25 yards to only need a few small adjustments to front and rear.

Put it where you want, Your still going to have to adjust it anyways to get it sighted in (after that -just remember wher it was).

(PS) I'll take it!

Jeff, Jeff... Everyone has to start somewhere. Don't worry about it. I'll more or less say what already has been said, but I'll say it slightly differently so it looks new and fresh. Or not fresh.

As mentioned before, the T marks are provided as reference points for accessories or optics that are removed and replaced frequently on the gun. They are there so you can amke note of where you place your items the first time, and so you can accurately place them back in the same spot when you want to use them again.

As far as your rear sight, I place mine as far back on the top rail (towards the charging handle) as possible. I try to place the rear sight in the same place it would be if I had a fixed carry handle. Because you have a removable rear sight, you are free to place it anywhere you feel is most comfortable for you.

don't over analyze it T marks are there for the sole purpose of putting thing back on exactly where you took them off from oh and to look cool

if you don't have T marked you can use ladder type rail covers and cover the areas surrounding where you have your accessories this should make it easy for you to put back optics and sights where you had them initially zeroed in. at
