...i know this is dumb but I have to ask...and my teacher's have always told me there is no such thing as a dumb question.... :)


Does my EoTech take the place of the rear ironsights?

Do I have to use the front iron sight with it as well?

Do I have to use it in conjunction with a rear iron sight?

thanks!

you can use a EOTech alone, the dot is a 1moa center surrounded by a 65moa circle, put the dot on what you want to hit.
1moa for fine work
65moa for close

MOA is minute of angle, 1minute is approx = 1" at 100 yard

Now you can use the iron sites with the red dot, call co-witnessing

Your EoTech HWS (holographic weapon sight) can be used as a stand-alone sight system. You just put the dot in the center of the ring on your target, and squeeze the trigger, that simple. You don't need to have iron sights on your rifle to use it, but I recommend keeping them just as a backup if your batteries die at the range and you don't have anymore on you.

Damn, I hate it when I take too long to type up a post. Then I look like an idiot answering a question that's already been answered. I'm not saying I'm not an idiot, just that I don't like advertising it.

you know, they have elevation and windage adjustment, thats what those screws on the right side with the up and right are

but here is a quick way to zero a red dot without going to the range.
first it must co-witness
and your irons must be zeroed, please do this at the range
then when you have your irons correctly lined up, move the windage and elevation screw so that the red dot sits on the front post

at what distance where zeroing 25m or 100m

because 2-3 feet off in any direction at 100 yard is actually pretty close at the starting point
