Default Sighting in AK

So i got my sight tool, I have read online already alot of different distances to zero in, like put your rear sight on 2 and zero at 25 meters.

I am trying to get it to hit within 2" on P for 25m and hopefully hit withing 1" at 50m and if i adjust the rear sight accordingly for farther targets. Now so far I only shoot at 50 and 100 yards, but would like to hit the x at those distances how would I start to zero in, put target at 50yards and notch on P an adjust till I hit x then when i move the P to 1 I should hit x at 100yards? I know the rifle is in meters but burro canyon is in yards and that pretty much the only range I know to go to near me.

Thanks in advance.

One yard is a little short of a meter, no big deal

Yes start at 50 then 100 and then 200. 200 yards is where I like shooting. Some like further but with AK? Let the other guys do that, not me.

No big deal at short distances. At long distances bigger deal.

Attached is a 25 meter zero target. Same procedure. Some say to put the rear leaf on the battle zero mark, other say to put it on 1 when doing this. Either way, once you have it zeroed at 25, move out to 100 to verify and adjust.

Oh, and if you find yourself having to drift the front sight some because of cant, you might want to consider upgrading to RPK type rear leaf that has windage adjustment to compensate (so you don't have to drift the front as much).

Google RPK rear sight leaf and you'll find it. They have red marks going out to "10". K-var sells one that is similar (Bulgarian I think) that goes out to "8" with white markings. Both are windage adjustable. $50 to $65 depending on where you get it from (excluding shipping).

The third option is a set of night sights by Meprolight or Ameriglo. Rear notch is wider than standard AK rear sights, but front sight is also thicker than standard AK. Cost is nearly 2x that of the adjustable rear RPK and Bulgarian rear leafs, but keep in mind that it includes the front as well.

AFAIK, the M+M M10 come standard with windage adjustable rear sights.
