Front Site Adjustment Tool!

Postby Marauder 1 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 12:12 pm

OK this is a tool that no Mosin Owner should be without, I purchased one of these off ebay some time ago and it's sat quietly in my shooting box until it was needed.

Today I needed to remove a front site from a hunk of barrel that was cut off my old rifle. So I broke out my little red tool.

Simply place the barrel in the groove with the hex head screw setting against the site and turn the screw with a allen wrench.

The site comes off or can be adjusted without any muss or fuss. In my opinion it's the only way to get proper alignment on a front site.

I think you can still get them through BuyMilsurp.com These go for 25.00 but it's so worth the cash. I've had mine for over a year and it was great to have one when you needed it.

OH and when I removed the site I was shocked at how crooked the slot was for the site. This is really a must have if you have a iron site Mosin that is shooting to the right or left.
