And for the rest of eternity everyone else was wrong. Customer is always right unless he is wrong...but only good business to nod your head in agreement, take their money, and give them a decal or some such thing. And....he will be able to market his carbine as "being built by the CMP pro-shop". Win-Win for everyone.


    (Not against the CMP pro shop. It's all about perceived value and customer service)

    Funny, I believe he's having the pro shop do it. This man is a great customer but I told him he had to raise the front sight, get a taller one, I lost out. I'm not in any way boning on my customer, I'm just wanting to make sure I'm not completely crazy. I even test fired a carbine today and imagined the front sight being taller while shooting, my POI when down just like I thought it should.

    Just keep it down, you haven't lost it...You would believe that the customer could hold the rifle in position and do the same sighting..even use his imagination..I follow the idea of him saying the pro- shop worked on his carbine, as a sales booster..=

    Tim, did you take into account spin drift on the bullet? What about the curvature of the Earth? Remember when shooting uphill hold low, and when shooting downhill hold high! How do you know his range is level




    Just kidding of course.

    You forgot the Coriolis effect. I wonder which way Orest's toilet spins!

    Good point! If you hold the carbine gangbanger style...then low would be high, and high would be low. See, easy to figure out.
