Sight Adjustments

All Tikka rifles are supplied by the factory to zero at 100 m. If this is unsuitable, the sights can be adjusted.

Standard-sights (Fig. 4)

Windage adjustment can be made either by the front or rear sight. When adjusting rear sight (2) first slacken screw (1), and tap sideways in direction required. Foresight adjustments will be opposite to rearsight adjustments. E.g. to move shot to right, adjust foresight to left.

Vertical adjustments are made by changing the bead. Your dealer can supply beads of different heights (5 - 9.5 mm). Each move of 0.5 mm in height or sideways alters the point of impact by roughly 12 cm at a range of 100 m. Before changing the bead the hood must be removed by pressing it backwards with the flat of the hand. The bead is detached by tapping it off its mount in a sideways direction. While removing the bead the mount must be supported firmly from below. After changing the bead it is essential to check the windage adjustment. If the rifle shots a little low (max. 10 cm), height adjustment may also be carried out by carefully filing down the tip of the bead.

Sivusááto tapahtuu siirtámállá etutáhtáimen jyváá sivusuunnassa.

Korkeuden sááto voidaan tehdá joko vaihta-malla jyvá, joita on saatavana eri korkuisia (7.5 - 9.5 mm) tai muuttamalla takatáhtáimen hahlon korkeussáátoá. 0.5 mm:n muutos kor-keus- tai sivusuunnassa vastaa 100 metrin matkalla n. 12 cm:n osumapisteen siirtymáá. Ennen jyván vaihtoa on irroitettava jyván-suojus painamalla sitá esim. kámmenellá taaksepáin. Jyván vaihto tapahtuu naputtele-malla jyvá sivusuunnassa irti jyvájalasta, jossa se on kiinni puristussovitteella. Jyváá irroitettaessa on jyvájalka tuettava jotain alustaa vasten. Jyván vaihdon jálkeen on kohdistus sivusuunnassa ehdottomasti tar-kistettava. Takatáhtáimen korkeussáátoá voidaan muuttaa, senjálkeen kun hahlolevyn (2) kiinnitysruuvi (1) on loysátty, naputtele-malla hahlolevyá varovasti korkeussuuntaan.

Sidojustering kan göras genom att flytta kornet i sidled. Flyttas kornet till höger flyttas träffläget till vänster. Höjdjustering sker genom att byta kornet (7.5 - 9.5 mm) eller att förändra siktski-vas höjdjustering. Varje 0.5 mm förändring av höjden eller i sidled ger ca. 12 cm träfflägesförändring pa 100 m. Vid byte av det laxade kornet maste kornskyddet avlägs-nas genom att man pressar det bakat mot myn-ningen. Knacka kornet i sidled. Se till att ha ordentligt stöd för kornklacken när kornet knackas i sidled. Höjdjustering av sikt-skivan (2) kan förändras, efter lasskruven (1) har lossats, genom att knacka siktskivan försiktigt i höjdled.

Battue-sights (Fig. 5)

Windage adjustment can be made by moving the bead sideways in the opposite direction the target point should move. E.g. to move shot to right, adjust foresight to left. Vertical adjustments are made by changing the bead or by changing the height adjustment of the rearsight. Your dealer can supply beads of different heights (7.5 - 9.5 mm). Each move of 0.5 mm in height or sideways alters the point of impact by roughly 12 cm at a range of 100 m. Before changing the bead the hood must be removed by pressing it backwards with the flat of the hand. The bead is detached by tapping it off its mount in a sideways direction. While removing the bead the mount must be supported firmly from below. After changing the bead it is essential to check the windage adjustment. When adjusting the height of the rear sight (2) first slacken the screw (1) and very carefully tap either up or down.
