    Any one own one of these Piettas?

    How did you correct the high point of impact?

    I have filed down the rear sight blade. Helped some. The pointy windage set screws are a problem. Also any one know what size & thread the set screws are? ( I measure 2.91 mm with calipers)

    Anybody make or modify the front sight. Higher needed.

    I had a new sight dovetailed in...

    I got the sight from Track of the Wolf. I also had to take some off of the rear to get what I wanted.

    I was thinking of grinding the locking edges off a front sight so I could put a brass shim under it. (About 1/4" would need ground on the front lock edge) Would need thread locker. Maybe a longer machine screw.
    Ruger MKs are only held down by one screw.
