Scopes and accuracy

If I put a scope on my AR and get it sighted in, could I remove it for a time then put it back on (the weaver style mounts with finger screws) and have it still be reasonably close to zeroed?

The reason I ask is I'm going to put a scope on my M4orgery, but I also want to be able to take it off and use the iron sights from time to time, as well as get a red dot scope. I'm wondering if the accuracy, especially with the telescopic scope, would be compromised int he process of taking it off periodically.

The accuracy will not be affected, bit your zero will be.
can you elaborate a little?
I see. That's not too bad.
That was my understanding of the slots, but I also see how the different torques will affetc the angles.
It has been my understanding that the markings on the top are designed to permit changing optics with minimal effects on zero. But I'll still check it.
