    How to adjust rear sights on xt-22R?

    Hi all,

    I recently picked up the xt-22R bolt action rifle. I was wondering, how do you adjust the rear sights ? It does not have any screws also the manual just have pictures of the sight but it does not explain how to adjust it?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't have one but from looking at photos, the rear is drift adjustable for windage (tap it with a non-marring nylon punch or hammer) and use the little staircase for elevation, by pushing it in or pulling it back to raise and lower the notch.

    Ah ok, I tried to adjust the elevation but looks like the elevation wheel is too tight.

    What looks like a wheel should be nothing more than a thumb-tab, for pushing and pulling on the little stepped elevator.

    So should I push in the thumb tab in first and then try to push or pull?

    Lift up on the rear sight, with your fingers (it's spring steel) and you will probably be able to tell what you need to do with the sliding part. It slides forward and backward (parallel to the barrel) to hold the sight in place, either raised or lowered.

    Costco should sell bullets in those bins, like walnuts. Or you could buy two five gallon buckets of bullets, shrink-wrapped together.

    That's it. Just make sure to be gentle and not lift up too much and damage the springing action, or pull left and right and affect the dovetail windage action. Really you just need to give enough upward force to slide that rear sliding bar forward or backwards a notch or two. In my experience, these notches equate to about a half in to an inch at 25 yards... for what that's worth.

    I just lifted it gently and the slider moved back and forth very easily . I am not touching the windage at this point, the salesman told me that most of the time the windage in these sights are factory adjusted to be on dead center. The only thing that needs to be adjusted is the elevation.

    Sighted in the Rifle yesterday, had to adjust the elevation a little bit but it does shoot to the right, that means I have to adjust the windage .

    So should I tap on the actual dove tail rear sight ? or the point where it is connected to the barrel ?
