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.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.

    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
