Thread: How Much MOA is one is one click on an AR sight......???

  1. #1

    Default How Much MOA is one is one click on an AR sight......???

    Yes, I know that one click is .62 miles (or about 5/8 of a mile). But I was just reading about zeroing sights on a military rifle referencing clicks. As in four clicks to the right and up two clicks.

    So is a click on a front sight the same distance as a click on the rear sight........??? If a rifle is hitting 14" to the left and 10" low, how many clicks to bring it to near zero......????

    Depends on the sights and barrel length (or better sight radius). Generally the front sight post moves between 1.5 and 2.0 MOA with each "click".

    No. I will have to dig around for the rifle Manual.
    Edited to add:The rear site adjusted left and rift as well as distance.

    On a govt issue A2 the rear site was geared towards distance from target. We (Marines) made our minor adjustments with front site post.
