Adjustable Sights

ADJUSTMENT - Each click of the sight adjustment screw (either windage or elevation) will move the point of impact of the bullet approximately 3/4" at a range of 25 yards. The height of the front sight has been set to take advantage of the elevation adjustment in the rear sight, considering the various ranges at which the gun is most likely to be used. Barrel length and load used affects trajectory. Therefore the shooter should determine sight settings by firing trials.
