M16A4 Rifle, M4/M4A1 Carbine…

What’s the Zero Mark?
hmmm, I’m not exactly sure how we zero your buIs. nothing in the -10 tm on that! well, we’d better find out!

Dear Half-Mast, When you zero the M16A4 rifle or the M4/M4A1 carbine with the backup iron sight (BUIS), do you place its knob on the white line or on the 300-m mark? CW3 D.C.

Dear Chief D.C., Good question. First of all, for accurate zeroing, the BUIS must be in the last slot to the rear.
BUIS goes in rear slot

For the M4/M4A1, the line on the left-side cam must align with the 300-m mark. For the M16A4, the line should be between the 300-m and 400-m marks.
For M4/M4A1, use 300-m mark For M16A4, set sight between 300-m and 400-m marks
