Hasty Sight Setting

While a BZO is considered true for 300 meters, a Marine must be capable of engaging targets beyond this distance. The rifle's sighting system allows sight settings for distances out to 800 meters in 100-meter increments. If a Marine must establish a BZO for extended ranges, it is referred to a hasty sight setting. To achieve a hasty sight setting, a Marine dials the appropriate range numeral on the rear sight elevation knob that corresponds to the range to the target. For example, if the rear sight elevation knob is set at 8/3 and a target appears at 500 meters, rotate the knob to the 5 setting.


Upon completion of firing with a hasty sight setting for extended ranges, return the rear sight to the BZO setting.
