How to position 3D iron sight correctly?

Note: I have no experience in 3ds Max 2009

Can someone give me the step by step?


Sorry if I posted in the wrong place, I'm new to the area.

What do you mean by "correctly"?

I don't know how it's setup in Battlefield 2 but ironsights functionality works in two ways:
1) The player camera is offsetted from the player position (moving down closer to the weapon) - This requires code work
2) Two animations, one for going into the iron sights mode and one for going out. An animation plays when the iron sights mode is toggled on, moving the arms and the weapon of the player.

Number two is done by editing the character rig, animating the joints movement and then exporting the new animation.
