OK.... I need some help adjusting my eotech dot. If I aim for the center of a target (my site has the dot on the middle of the target), but the bullet hits the upper left of the target, which way do I turn the dials labled north and west? I was having serious trouble fine tuning this bad boy.

Thanks

If I remember correctly you've got to crank the adjustment a lot to get movement, like a couple rotations for a couple inches. Boresight it best you can via the mount then adjust it. I'm not sure how far those things will let you adjust before they run out of room. Mine was a couple inches off at 45 yards or so and I got it dialed but I think I was cranking those knobs 360 degrees at a time between shots.

Dials labeled North and West?

Never seen that one. I guess it would depend on what way you were facing as to how you would turn it!:D

Mine is pretty plainly labeled.

Here's a pic-http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a184/FastFrank4x4/oddball/eotech001.jpg

As you can see, the rear adjuster(On the left in this pic) moves the shot up and down.

The arrow says that turning the screw clockwise will move the bullet impact point DOWN.

The front adjuster (The one to the right in this pic) is for adjusting left and right.

The arrow (See it right there by the screw?) says that moving this screw clockwise will move the bullet's impact point to the RIGHT.

I use a nickel or a dime to turn these screws. It fits real nice and I usually have one in my pocket.

The screw has a little gizmo made into it so it will "Click" as you turn it, and these "Clicks" will hold it from turning so it doesn't move when the gun kicks.

I believe two "clicks" will move the point of impact one inch at 100 yards, and one half inch at 50 yards.

One full turn of the screw (Twenty "Clicks") should be ten inches at 100 yards, five inches at 50 yards, and 2 1/2 inches at 25 yards.

If the bullet is hitting the top left of your target, you are going to want to "Tighten" both screws. (Don't screw them down tight, but turn them in the "tighten" direction!)

Count the clicks to determine how far the point of impact moves.

Yours may not be labeled like this, but I bet it works exactly the same.

Move the adjusters one at a time, and fire a few shots to verify where the bullet went.

Shoot, move the screws, shoot, move them again, bingo! You're shooting bull's eyes!

It's not hard, you can do it!
