Rear Sight Adjustment

1327 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  R6721
I have a mini 181 model, blue, purchased in 1979 -- adjustment of the rear sight for windage requires the sight to be moved almost to right edge of the receiver. The gun shoots to the left with the sight centered. Is this normal for such a large adjustment? I also have a 181, in stainless, purchased in 1982 and the rear sight for windage is centered on the receiver to hit point of aim. Just curious.

Seidel, when the Mini-14 comes from the factory it is factory zeroed. That means the the windage is adjusted so that the front right corner of the sight is even (Flush) with the receiver and the elevation is turned all the way down and readjusted seven (7) clicks up. This will then allow Ruger to get their factory spec/group for the rifle. This is how Ruger factory zeroes their Mini-14 prior to shipping them out. Hope this helps R6721:D
Yes, you can have more adjustment to the right if needed. However if the windage is all the way to the right or left you may want to check barrel straightness. R6721
