    Default First post with a question

    Hey everyone, this is my first post on this site. Anyways, I just got my first rifle of this nature, a Panther Arms DPMS. Anyways, I'm currently saving up for a good set of optics for the rifle, so right now I'm keeping the iron sights on until I have the money for what I want. While at the range yesterday, I was trying to sight in, yet I had my rear sight bottomed all the way out, yet I'm still shooting high and just cannot figure it out. At 70 yards, it's about a foot high. Any help would be awesome!

    Check the front site, crank it up a click or two, maybe more than that if you are shooting that high at 75 yards

    Is your front sight on a regular FSB, single plane or gas block w/picatinny rail?

    I can't crank it up anymore. Like I said, it's bottomed out

    Can you be a little more specific? I'm new to all of this and not really sure what you are talking about. I can post pics if that would simplify it

    what 7.62 and Chiroone are asking is if you have adjusted the front sight ? if you have a standard front sight base, you can adjust elevation via the front sight post.

    pic of the rifle would help us to understand your sight setup.

    You mean it is as low as it can be, is that what you mean by bottomed out? Raise the front site and you lower the point of impact, lower the site and you raise the point of impact. Sorry if I am insulting your intelligence, but want to clearly understand your issue.

    My guess is he has an A2 rear sight and has bottomed it out. OP, if this is the case, put the rear sight on 6/3, then sight in with the front sight.

    Is your front sight pinned on the barrel, is it clamped on a gas block or is it on a picatinny rail attached to the fore end? The reason I ask is that a gas block picatinny rail is not the same height as a fore end mounted rail. So even though they look the same the two front sights are not interchangeable.

    Remember that for a quick reference If your sight is "2 above your bore (This is general) at 1 yard you should be hitting that distance below your mark. That will be the base line for the slight arch and drop to be close to ZERO at 100 yrds. Remember you'll hit slightly high at 50 .
    It is not what a sniper would do but thats how I set up the rookies at the PD to get them close to get there zero mark.
