Adjusting Redfield peep sights


PDA

I picked up a sporterized 1891 Argentine with a Redfield peep sight and will need to zero it. When I rotate the windage adjustment clockwise the aperture moves to the right. When I rotate the elevation adjustment clockwise the aperture moves closer to the receiver. Adjusting sights always gets me for some reason so I'm looking for some help first.

If rounds hit right of point of aim, which way does the adjustment get made?

If rounds hit high, which way?

Thanks guys.

For a rear sight, if you need to more your POI to the right, rotate the knob so that peep moves to the right; if you need to move your POI up, then rotate rear know so that peep moves up.

The directions you need to move are opposite for a front sight adjustment

Perfect instructions. Just move the rear sight the direction you want to move the bullet's impact on the target.

What happens in some of these sight adjusting posts is that dozens of others will add details or alternatives that will add great confusion. To keep things simple, just follow Sheepdog's instructions.

Like sheepdog said
move rear sight in direction you want bullet impact to go.

sight left = bullet impact left
sight right = bullet impact right (clockwise on yours)
sight up = bullet impact up
sight down = bullet impact down (clockwise on yours)

If rounds hit right of point of aim, which way does the adjustment get made?
Counterclockwise

If rounds hit high, which way?
Clockwise

Have fun
