Abstract:

During normal use the M-2627 muzzle boresight device is a very accurate device for boresighting tank cannons. This report proposes technical improvements to the tool used for the collimation of the M-2627 muzzle boresight device MBD. In addition, this report makes recommendations to improve present allowable tolerances in these MBDs and suggests a field expedient method of correcting MBDs which exceed tolerances under field conditions.
