Default tx200 ajp rail

Have got myself an AJP rail for my tx200. Does it matter which way round it gets fitted,? Allen heads on left side or right side?

They usually have some moa adjustment built in (i.e. slight downward slope towards muzzle).
Both of mine have the bolt heads to the right hand side, you can confirm the moa by simply measuring the elevation at either end.

1. Raises the height of the scope (the picture is not a good example as the scope is mounted too high for the comb, unless the owner is a giraffe) higher than typical mounts alone in order to make shooting more comfortable (more upright head position) and easier calibration for the longer range targets.
2. They come with some built in MOA adjustment so less clicks to max target range, no shims required, stay closer to optical center...
