With lasers, the borelight allows the soldier to boresight and then engage targets, eliminating the meter zeroing procedures altogether.

Dry fire is done to allow the soldiers to make adjustments to the TWS. These are useful for those who may not have access to a longer range, but would like to have a 50 yard zero.

This fundamental is not affected by night firing conditions using the TWS. The procedures for practice qualification are:.

Step by Step Guide

Ensure mounting bracket is not damaged or missing Make sure lens covers are not ripped, dry rotted, or missing Ensure ARD is not dented or obstructs the field of view. Obtain at least 23 target hits out of 40 timed targets.

So to sum up, We discussed how the shot process is applied to the CCO for zeroing. Stabilize the weapon so it will not move. Prepare the M16A2 25 meter Zero Target for zeroing.

FM Chapter 8 Advanced Optics, Lasers, And Iron Sights (Phase V of

This position of the borelight, and where the visible laser is pointing, is identified as the start point. Bring the class back in and administer the written test. This procedure is used to boresight the M68 CCO to the weapon for meters. Your fingertip will appear to have moved, even though no movement has actually taken place.


Soldiers must adjust their body position so they can properly look through the sight. The dot follows the horizontal and vertical movement of the gunner’s eye while remaining fixed on the target.

This is now the point of impact. Other procedures are the same as standard iron sight procedures. Qualification standards are the same for day and night. The course of fire for the TWS is the same scenario as the day qualification tables with the same requirements for standards of fire for current day standards.

Take another shot to check that the point of impact is centered. When engaging targets less than 50m away, you must center the red dot in the sight and align the red dot center mass on the target. Before presenting this lesson, thoroughly prepare by studying this lesson and identified reference material to include prerequisite classes.

Target detection procedures for the M68 are the same as with standard iron sights. Starting with a securely installed and live-fire zeroed BIS, mount the reflex sight to the front of the receiver rail or to the top RAS as preferred. Each field of view has its own advantages and disadvantages. Dismount sight by unscrewing torque limiting knob and closing lens covers. Hours Lesson Number Testing, review of test results: During the dry-fire exercise soldiers acquire a sight picture on all exposed silhouette targets prior to conducting the field-fire scenario.

Turn in the opposite direction of the arrow if you want to move the point of impact down. If the visible laser cannot be located when the soldier spins the borelight to the half turn position, start this procedure at 2 meters instead of 10 meters.

Aim between the fingers with the meter aiming point and make adjustments to the TWS until the visible laser tzrget the borelight is centered on the borelight circle on the meter boresight target. The art of target detection at night is only as good as the soldier practices. Comments So empty here Sight picture, if you recall, is the incorporation of the aligned CCO Dot with a target.


Count taregt number of squares to find the center of the impact zone Count 2 squares away from the center of the impact zone in each direction top, bottom, left and right Draw the 4 cm square for the impact zone NOTE: The M68’s reflexive sight allows the soldier to fire the weapon with his cheek at a comfortable position; however, the soldier must zero with the same cheek position he will fire with because the parallax free is only effective beyond 50 meters.

Conduct of firing A dry fire exercise will be conducted prior to the actual practice record fire The practice fire is conducted and recorded in accordance with the practice record fire scorecard. Unscrew and remove the protective caps from the adjustment turrets to access the adjustment screws. Before beginning a night marksmanship program, soldiers must qualify on their assigned weapons during daylight conditions as outlined in the previous chapters of this manual.

O-rings are present to stop moisture d. Now that you are familiar with the M68 and how to boresight it, it is necessary to zero the M68 at 25 meters using live ammunition. If the batteries are touching, they will discharge themselves and have a reduced battery life. Before targft ensure that the borelight has been zeroed to the weapon.

If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. No centering or focusing is required. Align the threads properly to avoid cross threading and turn clockwise. Refer to TM31 Oct 00 for target preparation.
