trouble sighting in 22

Recommended Posts

My son got savage youth modle 22 brand new as a gift. It has fixed iron sights. We are trying to sight it in at 25 yards. We got it center with a good 3 inch group and he can do this evey time, now the problem the group needs to go to left about 8 inches. How do i do this with fixed irons and all it has is up and down adjustmens?

I would check his dominant eye. This sounds very much how I found out I was a south-paw for shooting. If you already know how to check eye dominance the rest of this is moot, but if not, have him point to a corner of a room with both eyes open. Have him close or cover his right eye and ask if his pointing finger seemed to move from the corner. Then repeat the same thing with the other eye. The dominant eye will be the one where the finger point does not move off the corner when the eye is open.

Your .22 should have dove tail bases. To sight in the rifle you need to tap the rear sight in the direction you need the impact to go. Eg. if the bullet needs to go right then you move the rear sight to the right.

To do this you will need to tap the sight with a hammer, flat punch, or tool that will not damage the metal. I would recommend using a rag to soften impact of object used. Tap lightly and note that you will need little change in position to get the firearm sighted in. If the firearm rear sight is not adjustable, the front will need to be moved in the opposite direction to achieve the same results. Make sure you tap the bottom of the sight as not to damage the front blade or the rear sight.

I would think that if you e-mail the savage arms co they will explain it further if needed. I think they have a faq that may explain it also. Brent

Tap the front sight to the left gently


Correct you want to move the front sight not the rear. Also in the past we have used a brass punch that way it won't damage the sight or dovetail joint.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
