    How to setup iron sight,mrds and laser sight

    Greetings. I would like to know the best way to setup my 3 sights. I have a colt m4. I just put a streamlight w/laser on the left side rail. I also put a eotech mrds on the right side at a 45' angle. What are the best distances for each sight ? I have the iron at 100 yd's. I want to know where to set the mrds and laser at. Thanks.

    Kinda depends on what you're using them all for doesn't it? It's kind of a strange configuration.

    Typically you'll have the optic at 12 as primary, then BUIS or co-witness at 12 as well. Either that or optic at 12 as primary, and irons at 1:30 for close targets.

    For a 3gun setup, I run my magnified optic at 12 with 100yd zero, and a RMR at 1:30 zeroed at 100 for close targets.

    Your laser you'll want zeroed at 200yds.

    ... but again, what you're doing, has a lot to do with how you'd set it up.

    Yep, I would set it up similar to Orkan. Primary optic at 000*, DD RMR at 045*, light/laser would either go away or be at 180*

    I have my iron which are my primary long distance at 12/top. I sighted that at 100 yd's.. I have my eotech mrds at a 45' on the right and my light laser at 90' on the left. Looking for distance for the laser and mrds. The laser would be maybe at 50 yds and the mrds for cqc. What's the best range for the mrds ? 25 yds maybe ? Yes I'm setting up for three gun. I'm going with a acog for the primary. I am using the iron sight for now. I can't co-witness because the mrds is to high. Thanks for all the input.

    I want to use it for 3 gun practice and pliking. Also good for home. I will buy a colt pro and use that when I get good enough to enter.

    Yes, because the mechanical offset will cause issues if you zero it up close. Depending on what rounds you're shooting, you might go with 150yds or 250yds, but it all depends on where the apex of your bullets flight path is. Basically, you want your laser setup for a "point blank zero."
