    Hey Folks,

    I just received my new Daniel Defense M4v3 and it is everything I hoped it would be. I put about 100 rounds through it and it has been flawless and more accurate than I am. I will post some pics as soon as possible.

    Only thing I have a question about is how many clicks it took to zero. I started at 25m and 50m. The rear sight took seven clicks left to zero at 50m. It hits center at 100 as well. my rear sight looks really offcenter in the base. I know it may be normal for that many clicks at that range, but I wanted to check with you all.

    My rear sight has 38 clicks from far right to far left, so I still have about 12 clicks left and 26 clicks right. How much adjustment do you all have left when zeroed?

    I also noticed that the hole in the 0-200 meter aperture is drilled off center to the right, which means that the aperture is further left than it needs to be. Its not way off center, but it may account for a click or two.

    Is it common for the holes to be slightly off center in the aperture? I assume its not, but I dont know how bad is too bad.

    I also thought about a canted front sight but it really looks straight.

    I emailed Daniel Defense but havent heard back yet. This thread is not meant to knock DD before they give me some suggestions. I just thought Id check with you folks. The fit and finish of the rifle is awesome , I have no complaints there.

    Thanks for the help

    Hey folks,

    Just wanted to let you know that the "defect" i found on my 0-200 aperture is the offset that is supposed to be there (because of the sight moving on the threads when flipped). I just found this out and I feel stupid for not thinking about it.

    I was basically worried about the 7 clicks to the left to zero which others have said is not much to worry about, would you all agree? I got worried when reading about canted front sights.

    I appreciate your replies

    Nothing to worry about.
