  67. 67. 2-44 2.4.3 Boresighting Procedures. The AN/PEQ-2A incorporates a unique zero preset feature which enables the aim and illumination beams to be nearly zeroed when initially attached to the weapon. To establish this zero preset, rotate each adjuster to its full clockwise end of travel, then rotate them back approximately 5.5 turns to align the white dot on the adjuster with the hole on the adjuster cover. CAUTION.. Do not force the adjusters beyond their end of travel. The AN/PEQ-2A may also be boresighted to the host weapon using a Laser Borelight System (LBS). Table 2-7 provides 10m Target Offsets for this purpose. Refer to the latest version of the LBS Operator Manual for boresighting procedures. After establishing the zero preset or boresighting the AN/PEQ-2A / weapon combination, the AN/PEQ-2A may be zeroed to the weapon via live fire at a 25-meter range as described in paragraph 2.4.4. Table 2-7 provides target offsets that must be applied to the 25-meter zeroing target.
