Chapter Zeroing

To be combat effective, it is essential for the Marine to know how to zero his rifle. Zeroing is adjusting the sights on the weapon to cause the shots to impact where the Marine aims. This must be done while compensating for the effects of weather and the range to the target. It is critical that Marines can zero their rifles and make the sight adjustments required to engage targets accurately.

See the appropriate technical manual for procedures on boresighting and zeroing with supplemental aiming devices (e.g., laser, night vision devices).


+ The procedures in this manual are written for right-handed Marines; left-handed Marines should reverse instructions as necessary.
