    Hello all.

    I used the search feature but didn't find an answer, so......

    How do you adjust the factory peep sight? It appears that for windage: you loosen the opposing screw and tighten the other until you have moved the sight the correct amount.............correct? Are the screws calibrated?

    For Height I see a screw on top..........is there another screw underneath that has to be accessed by removing the sight from the base?

    If this has already been discussed, please point me to the proper thread.


    Thanks.

    Well my angst over adjusting the peep sight was for naught.

    The last time I shot this rifle was 40 years ago and it sported a 4X scope then. When my dad retired it, he removed the scope and reinstalled the factory peep (which I didn't even know he had....).

    Anyway I took my 1st shot at 50 yards just to see if I was in the ball park......dead on, 1.5” high.

    Hmmmm.....lets try 100 yards. At 100 yards the front blade covers the entire target. I tried to center it the best I could and proceeded to place 5 rounds in the bull.

    So I’m calling it good.

    And some doubt the accuracy and repeatability of the Sako dovetails! My experiences are similar which is why I go out of my way to use factory rings.
