ADJUSTMENT—Please tell me whether the Lyman wind gauge, front sight, No. 8, and the combination rear sight with or without the disc would make a good combination for hunting and fine target shooting. I have a model ‘97, .22 caliber Marlin and it shoots low and to the right. What would it cost to have the sights adjusted?
The front sight is all right and I presume the rear sight which you mention is also good for hunting with the cup disc removed, but I have never used it, so can’t say for certain. There is no doubt that it would be a good combination for target work. You should be able to adjust the sights on your rifle yourself with very little trouble; if you can’t, any rifleman can do it for you and should make no charge. The rear sight of the model ’97 Marlin is adjustable and all that is necessary to make the rifle shoot higher is to elevate the rear sight a notch or two, as required. To make it shoot more to the left, the place aimed at, move the front sight slightly to the right or the rear sight to the left.
