Chapter Sight Adjustment

6.1 Rear Sight: The Kimber Model 82 Government rifle is equipped with an adjustable rear sight, This sight is adjustable for both windage and elevation. In addition, each sight is equipped with an adaptor allowing the use of other types of apertures. The furnished aperture has the same thread as Anschutz and can be exchanged with similar apertures. Each click (either windage) or elevation) of the sight wil move the point of impact approximately 1/5" at 100 yards. All rifles are shipped with sight adjusted at 0-0 position for approximate range of 50 yards. All rifles are supplied with an adaptor to allow use of other types of apertures. To use Lyman aperture, screw adaptor into sight and screw Lyman aperture into adaptor.

The dials on the sights are clearly marked with direction of movement to insure proper placement on target.

Caution: Except for the aperture and its adaptor, the rear sight of the Kimber Model 82 Government rifle should never be taken apart. Replacement of sight should be as a unit.
