Basic rifle marksmanship taught effective engagement caog the enemy with the basic rifle or carbine using ar,y sights to engage acob primarily during the day.
Advanced rifle marksmanship added other marksmanship situations that a combat soldier may encounter. This chapter discusses how to enhance marksmanship skills, with proper training, using the Army’s newest optics and lasers to ensure the soldier can fight as well at night as he can during the day. An established day and night advanced marksmanship program equipped with training strategies and proposed qualification standards has been developed.
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.
This chapter implements new night qualification standards to compliment current Army training strategies. Commanders should follow these training strategies and abide by the qualification rm set forth to the best of their abilities. Although some courses of fire may seem redundant or inappropriate, numerous tests show that these training strategies work and the qualification standards are achievable if the strategy is followed.
The borelight is an accurate means of zeroing weapons and most aided-vision equipment without the use of ammunition. Time and effort must be applied to ensure a precise boresight, which will in turn save time and ammunition.
Figure shows the current borelight training program. The precise boresighting of a laser will allow direct engagement of targets without a meter zero. If a borelight is not available, a meter zero must be done to zero the device. All optics will be meter zeroed; a borelight only aides in zeroing. Boresighting is a simple procedure that can and will save time and ammunition if the procedures outlined here are strictly followed.
The visible laser of the borelight is aligned with the barrel of a designated weapon. Then, using a meter boresight target, the weapon can be boresighted with any optic, laser, or iron sight that the soldier is assigned to fire. When this is armmy, move the tk point of the aiming device to the crosshair on the meter boresight target. The weapon system is now boresighted and ready to engage targets or conduct a meter zero. With lasers, the borelight allows the soldier to boresight and then engage targets, eliminating the meter zeroing procedures altogether.
Before boresighting the weapon system the borelight must first be zeroed to the weapon. To zero the borelight to the weapon, align the visible laser with the barrel of the weapon. Stabilizing the weapon is crucial. The weapon can be stabilized in a rifle box rest or in a field location by laying two rucksacks agmy by side. Lay the weapon on the rucksacks and then lay another rucksack on top of the weapon to stabilize it.
The weapon does not have to be perfectly level with the ground when boresighting. The borelight is seated properly when the mandrel cannot be moved any further into the muzzle and the mandrel spins freely. Stabilize the weapon so it will not move. This position of the borelight, and where the visible laser is pointing, is identified as the start point.
M ACOG |
This position of the borelight, and where the visible laser is pointing, is identified as the half atmy position. Place the zeroing mark approximately 10 meters from the end of the barrel so that the visible laser strikes the zeroing mark.
If the visible laser stops on the zeroing mark, the borelight is zeroed to the weapon. Using the adjusters on the borelight, move the visible laser to the reference point. Armg the borelight back to the start point; move the zeroing mark to the visible laser. 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.
When the visible laser is adjusted to the reference point at 2 meters, then start the procedure again at 10 meters. Every barrel is different; therefore, steps 8 through 10 must be performed with every weapon to ensure that the borelight is zeroed to that barrel. If the borelight is zeroed, then go directly to the boresighting procedures. Weapon stability is crucial in boresighting. The weapon should be in the “bolt forward” position and must not be canted left or right during boresighting procedures.
If the weapon is tk using field-expedient methods sandbags, rucksacks and the weapon is laid on the side for stability, ensure that the boresight target is also oriented in the same manner. Two soldiers a firer and a target holder are required to properly boresight a weapon. Their duties are as follows:.
Appendix G shows the most current meter boresight target. The meter boresight target grids are 1-centimeter squares, unlike the meter zero targets. Weapon stabilization is crucial, orientation is irrelevant. The back-up iron sights BIS can be boresighted to a new user to expedite meter zeroing. To boresight using the BIS, align the iron sights with the Canadian bull on the meter boresight target. Make adjustments to the windage and elevation of the iron sights until the borelight is centered with the circle on the boresight target.
Before boresighting ensure that the borelight has been zeroed to the weapon. The more accurate the boresight of the M68 to the assigned weapon, the closer to a battlesight zero the weapon will be. With the help of an assistant, place the boresight target 10 meters in front of the weapon.
Have the firer get behind the weapon in qrmy stable ar,y firing position looking through the M Aim agmy red dot of the M68 on the crosshair located acoy the meter boresight target. Make adjustments zcog the M68 until the visible laser of the borelight is centered on the borelight circle on the meter boresight target.
Have the gunner move the weapon off the crosshair, realign the red dot of the M68 on the crosshair, and turn the borelight back on. If the borelight is on the circle and the red dot of the M68 is on the crosshair, the firer’s weapon system is boresighted. The M68 is a parallax free sight beyond meters. Boresighting is conducted at 10 meters. This requires the firer to ensure that he acquires the same sight ym and cheek-to-stock weld position each time in order to get a solid boresight.
If the firer does not get the same sight picture after the second realignment, he more than likely has a fundamentals problem with his firing position and sight picture. To save time on the range, a coach should troubleshoot the soldier before trying to continue the boresighting of the M Before boresighting the TWS, make sure the borelight has been zeroed to the weapon.
The more accurate the boresight of the TWS to the assigned weapon, the closer to a battlesight zero armyy firer will be. Zeroing at 25 meters must be conducted to ensure the TWS is properly zeroed. Both the narrow and wide field of views must be boresighted and zeroed. Have the firer get behind the weapon in a stable supported firing position and look through the TWS. Aim between the fingers with the meter aiming point and make adjustments to the TWS until the visible laser of the borelight is centered on the borelight circle on the meter boresight target.
If the gunner still has the proper boresight alignment the gunner is boresighted; otherwise he amry need remedial training on his sight picture. Align the meter boresight target with the visible laser of the borelight.
The boresight target and zeroing mark must be kept stable during the boresight procedure. Do not turn the adjustment screws too much or they will break. Regardless of the mounting location, the adjuster that is on top or bottom will always arky the adjuster for elevation and the one on the accog will be the windage adjuster.
Each click of elevation and windage is 1 centimeter. For ease, round up to one square. However, each square of the meter zero target is. Before boresighting make sure that the borelight has been zeroed to the weapon. Align the armg laser with the circle on the meter target offset. If there is not enough ambient light to see the meter target offset circular crosshair, use a flashlight and shine it indirectly at the target.
Anyone know the TM (Army) number for an ACOG?
This will provide enough ambient light for the gunner to see the target. Have the gunner move his reticle off the circular crosshair and then wrmy back on the target. Turn the borelight laser back on. The backup iron sight BIS is a semi-permanent flip up sight equipped with a rail-grabbing base. The BIS provides a backup capability effective out to at least meters and can be installed on the M16A4 and M4-series weapons. Figure shows the backup iron sights training program. The BIS is adjusted for a meter battlefield zero to provide backup in the event an optic or laser device fails to function.
All procedures for the BIS are the same as with standard iron sights. The zeroing standards for the BIS are the same as with iron sights.
To zero the BIS for acoog M4-series, set the range selector to meters. Target detection procedures for the BIS are the same as with standard iron sights. A practice qualification atmy always precede an actual qualification. Practice qualification allows the soldier to practice and refine his skills to succeed during qualification. Practice qualification standards for tmm BIS are the same as with standard iron sights.
If the soldier qualifies during the practice qualification it may be counted as the record qualification. Qualification with the BIS is conducted on a standard record fire range, and acob standards for qualification are the same as the record fire tj standards. The M68, CCO is a reflex nontelescopic sight. It uses a red aiming reference collimated dot and is designed for the “two eyes open” method of sighting. The dot follows the horizontal and vertical movement of the gunner’s eye while remaining fixed on the target.
No centering or focusing is required.
