Hi all. I just got back from the range and I had a few questions for you all. I was shooting my VZ-24 at 50yds trying to figure out where it was hitting. It was shooting pretty good. POI was about 6" above and 2" to the right of POA. The groups were actually pretty good until it got hot and then it started to open up quite a bit. How do I go about adjusting the sights for windage? Also, I noticed that rear sights for K98's start at 100yds and go up. If I were to install a K98 rear sight would that correct the issues with shooting high or is my only option to install a new front sight? Id really like to get this gun hitting close to POA since I quite enjoy shooting it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a taller front sight blade.

Here's a link to TGP and scan down to tall sights.

if it shoots to the right , move front sight to the right. Use a brass punch and a mallet. Go very slowly.
If you like the rifle that much, I would invest in MOJO peep sight. They are fully adjustable for windage and elevation , no permanent changes to the gun
