    The manual doesn't say which way to turn the screws to do what.

    Does clockwise on the side screw go right or left?

    Does clockwise on the top screw go up or down?

    On a MKII (MKIII should be the same) turning the windage and elevation adjustment screws clockwise moves the sight left and down respectively.

    You'd think it would be in the manual, wouldn't you? LOL

    There are a few of us who do read the manual. :D

    It's on page 31 in my MK III manual.

    "The Standard RUGERĀ® MARK III pistol is equipped with a rear sight which
    is adjustable for windage only. The rear sight can be drifted laterally in its
    dovetail on the top of the slide by tapping it with a wooden or plastic headed
    hammer or similar implement. The front sight is fixed. Target models are
    equipped with adjustable sights. Turning the top (elevation) sight adjustment
    screw clockwise lowers the impact of the shot. Turning the horizontal (windage)
    sight adjustment screw clockwise moves the impact of the shot to the left. "

    Pretty clear to me......:eek:
