    This is probably the dumbest thing I've ever used, but it's so simple. It took me an hour to figure out that the drum spins freely of the tool. I wanted to figure out out for myself instead of watching a boobtoob video. But now I'm happy I figured it out! :D 1572801787796659671130682907891.jpg

    I have one and need to adjust the sights on my MR556. Do you all know which way to dial for moving shots up or down? I don't have instructions with the diopter sights. Right now, my shots are hitting lower than point of aim, so I want to adjust the sight to make my impacts consistent with point of aim.

    Dialing it down (clockwise) will push your shots further down correct? If I want to raise my impacts, I'll need to dial it counter clockwise correct?

    Thanks! I was trying to think about how directionally, if I dialed it down, what that would do with my sight plane, but apparently it was reverse from what I wanted it to do.

    I'm dreading having to adjust windage, not because of HOW to do it, but I dont want the sight to move after I adjust it

    Indeed. It's a pain in the ass. Once I get it set I'll likely just buy an Aimpoint.

    I have a strike eagle coming for it, but theres no better feeling than hitting steel at medium-long range with irons.

    Indeed. I actually like HK's irons over most others. SAN Sig sights are also just as good.
