Hello,
I'm new to the forums and have a question about the windage adjustment on my scout. The elevation dial works correctly but when adjusting for windage the sight increments one click at a time moving to the left, but when moving to the right I have to push the sight with my thumb while adjusting the dial. Does this sound normal or is the rear sight defective? GI4

Thanks

Could be the holes in the sight ears are not level making the sight base bind as it goes to the right (means the right side ear hole is lower than the left). From what I've read here and there this is kind of common on commercial receivers but not all have binding issues.

Read all of THIS and by the time you're done you'll either master the rear sight or be completely confused about it. I had to read it about three times with everything in front of me to thoroughly check mine out... I wasn't having an issue, just like to know how it all works and why.
