Elevation: Using the front sight elevation tool, insert the forked end of the tool into the top of the front sight hood. Engage the tool into the flats of the front sight post. Turn the tool counter clockwise to lower the bullet's point of impact on target. To raise the point of impact, turn the tool clockwise.
Windage: Using a small mallet and brass punch, or an after market windage adjustment tool, windage can be adjusted by drifting the front sight seat (#6) in the direction desired. From the perspective of a sight picture, move the front sight seat in the opposite direction you want your point of impact to shift. For example, to move the group on the target to the left, drift the front sight seat to the right.
The rear sight is an open notch type which is adjustable for elevation from 100 meters to 1000 meters (110 yards to 1100 yards). There is also an all purpose "battle" setting on the sight ladder, set for 300 meters (330 yards). This is attained by moving the elevation slide to the rear of the ladder as far as it will go.
