Re: adjusting Creed more type sights
Ok, thanks for the reply and sorry it took me so long to get back.
Firstly, the sight in question is the least expensive one from Cabela's (I try not to use "cheap" when discussing my own stuff).
The physical features are:
4 1/2" tall including top adjusting knob,
side scale from "0" to "250",
two locking nuts on elevation adjustment screw,
crown of adjustment screw is knurled with out driver slot,
eye cup has small amount of side to side adjustment,
no indication marks on eye cup,
four screws at bottom of sight,
none have any scales or markings,
one holds sight to base,
two screws on either side of base that push sight from side to side (when these are loosened, the sight rocks from side to side),
one screw in center of sight right between these two screws.
That's it for features.
Ok, now its question time.
What screw can I remove to take the sight off of the base without messing everything up?
How much MOA adjustment is one turn of the thumb screw on top?
How much "windage" (in MOA) is applied by one turn of the two side to side screws at the base?
Is the eye cup interchangable with the one that has multiple sized apatures?
Do I really need to remove this sight from my gun before anyone sees me with it and I embarrass myself?
I would really like to retain it for at least a little while as the nice sights are a whole lot more expensive (po'boy has to save up).
