    I'd say from my limited experience, anything from 3.8mm - 4mm work well.
    If I had to pick, it would be 3.9mm.

    I definitely wouldn't go any tighter than 3.8mm.

    BTW a 1.4mm outer ring is most popular and seems to work best.

    Think I'm using a 4.1 or 4. It's personal. You can test for it if you have a few to play with but resist the temptation to go too tight. If under pressure it can exaggerate hold movement on the bull and also the eyes can have trouble discerning a clean even gap between the ring and the bull.
    Also worth playing with rear iris size as well, which can vary with lighting and preference.

    3.8 or 3.9 with metal, if clear or pink may want to try larger depends on lighting.

    Front sight

    Ok I'll have a look for 3.8.

    I was very disappointed when I opened the package for my MPR Rifle to find no spare elements when the cheaper S200 comes with a spare set.

    Like the others said depend on your eye and light, my rifle came with 4.0 and it's to big for me, try 3.8 and 3.9
