Bore inspection?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Yes, the little tick marks were there. I know the old tankers said that the string method used to be the way of bore sighting. All I'm saying is that for the last 20+, the Pye-Watson or boresight device now in use is the standard.

It's all I've ever used on M48A5, M1IP, M60A3TTS, M1A1, M1A2. I am confident that If I needed too, I could boresight a tank using string and a pair of binos though. It would take me longer and may not be as accurate as if I did it with a Pye-Watson.

The only time I used the string method, was when 'we' had problems with the 120mm (M26A1) Pye-Watsons. The 'spring blocks' were bad, thus a bad boresight. We used the String Method in lew of a shortage of 'good' MBD's
