riddle me this?

to raise the bullet impact on a target you must raise the sight itself ?and if that statement is true then why does it not do it ?

Re: riddle me this?

You are speaking of the rear sight of course?

Re: riddle me this?

Can you tell us more about the firearm you are shooting, the sight, and the ammunition? What you are describing sounds odd, so details please. Rule of thumb: move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to impact on the target.

Re: riddle me this?

I had that problem while trying to help a friend site in a flinter. Solution was to get a new sight with more adjustment range.

Re: riddle me this?

You need to lower your front sight. I had the same problem with my Lyman GPR and after several sessions with a file --ended up putting a turtle sight on the front end. Problem over. Lowering the front sight will bring the muzzle up.
