I saw this on another forum and my iron sights are lined up similar to this

is this "normal"? (I'm a noob and this is still an unfamiliar sight to me)

That rear sight needs to be adjusted pretty severely to the right....

If it shoots straight like that I would be worried.

As long as it hits the intended target as is, I will leave it alone and woundn't worry about it.

What about at a distance when you need to take windage into consideration?
What do you do then?

Any more to the left and you could probably shoot around corners..

I just recently took my newly finished AR our a few weeks ago with the same rear Troy sight and mine looked identical to the OP's rear sight except it was to the far right. My setup included a Global Tactical 16" barrel, Larue 12" handguard, and a BCM flat top upper with a LMT removable front rail mounted sight. I think I need to figure out what the deal is with mine. :cool:

If it's zeroed like that then you're good to go. Don't worry about the look too much, the bad guy wont know he was hit by a weird looking front sight ;)

Well what's the situation?

Recreational? Competition? Real life combat?

Short range (100-300)? Mid range (300-600)? Long range (beyond 600)?

Basically, I would simply tell you to hold over.

If you're shooting primary in a situation where you can take the time to do a wind call and unknown distance estimation to get a solution, adjust sights, and take a shot, then it would be prudent to get better sights (i.e. a windage adjustable front sight) or an optic (red dot, scope, reflex, Acog) where you have lots of internal adjustments and the ability to shim if necessary.

Here is what my rear sight looks like. Just click on the IMG link.

I shot expert rifle qualification with a m16 that was zeroed kind of like that... I got lucky and there wasn't too much wind that I had to adjust farther than I could, but if that sight is zeroed, and not just you messin around with it then don't worry about it.

If that's where it needs to be to shoot straight, then he has a canted front sight. I have first hand experience with those.
It does sound like the OP just took the sight out of the box, and that just happens to be the way it came.

hunh? i think you missed the point...



op- did you fire and zero that thing? or did you just put it on? because something is wrong.. at least it would bug the crap outta me. if that is shooting point of aim, did you put the front sight on yourself?

To OP, it could be your barrel is over torq.. A lot of Bushmasters came this way right before the 2000 AW Band. I sent my upper back to BM and it came back sighted in right in the middle.

Why is everyone freaking out? If thats where his rifle is zerod at then whats the problem? Are all of yours zerod exactly where the middle tick mark is on your rear sight?

Maybe Im missing something completely here...

yes, mine are. and i think you are missing something. just think about the geometry on a carbine, and when the sight is off that far, you'll see what we are talking about.

+1 on the over torque. Get it fixed...

I am really digging the new Troy rear sight. When I get some more cash they will become my primary ARs BUIS:

No you guys got me wrong haha. That's not MY gun, that's a gun someone else posted on another forum. Sunday was my first time shooting and zeroing my AR, so the sights came out retarded like that, but I'm not sure if it's my sights or my aim, I'm too new to be shooting at 50 yards.

Here's the thing, I purchased my upper and had it assembled by Larue. So what are the chances that they screwed up? I'm still convinced that I just suck at shooting.

Both your front and rear sights are folding sights correct? Probably the effect of tolerance stacking between those 2.

Define this "tolerance slack" I don't know what it means.

Two different White Oak uppers at my no-wind zeros for each one:

Windage adjustable front sight bases are a necessity for competitive High Power and highly desired for recreational target shooting beyond short range (anything over 300 yards).
