    Default HK folding iron sight adjustement?

    Anyone know how the HK folding rear iron sight works as far as elevation adjustment? I know that it's supposed to be rotated one direction for up and the other for down (which is marked on the sight pedestal), but what's the zero for it and how much does each change shift the range, since I haven't been able to find it anywhere on how that actually works.

    The standard front sight that attaches to the handguard is what I'm referring to. HK lists it as 33mm on their site.

    Yes. You twist the rear sight to raise and lower the rear. It’s also adjustable for windage. I have a set.

    Is there any indication (possibly in any instructions that come with them) on how to set zero or range? I know how to adjust the rear sight (method to do so) and like that the front sight blade is fixed and all adjustment can be done on the rear, but I've never seen any indication on how to judge the elevation/range settings (though the rear sight is clearly marked for windage/azimuth adjustments).

    That's great info (I don't have a set of sights or a manual for them) as far as 100m zero. Is there an actual range adjustment, or are these strictly basically QCB/back up sights?

    No, there is no range adjustment.

    So they're pretty much intended as back up sights or for CQB work like the MP7's iron sights.

    I’d think they are just as effective as AR iron sights. In the Army we only qualified with them to 300m. I also think the aperture in the HK sights would be a little too small for quick CQB type engagements.
