There are a few things you need to know about adjusting Ruger revolver sights:

1. You’ll need a gunsmithing screwdriver to adjust the sights.

2. The screws that adjust the sights are located on the top of the revolver, just in front of the rear sight.

3. To adjust the sight, loosen the screw on one side until it’s loose enough to move the sight, and then do the same thing on the other side.

4. Once both screws are loosened, use your fingers or a small flathead screwdriver to move the sight in the desired direction.

5. Tighten each screw after you’ve moved the sight, making sure it’s snug against the sight but not so tight that you strip the threads.

If you’re having trouble adjusting the sights yourself, or if you don’t feel comfortable doing it, take the revolver to a gunsmith or another qualified individual to have it done for you.

There are a few things you need to know about adjusting Ruger revolver sights:

  1. Revolver sights are typically adjusted by drifting them in or out of the dovetail in which they’re mounted.
  2. The most important factor when adjusting sights is to maintain the same relationship between the front and rear sights. This means that if you drift the front sight one way, you’ll need to drift the rear sight the same amount in the opposite direction to maintain correct alignment.
  3. When drifting a sight, use a brass punch or other non-marring tool to avoid damaging the sight or causing it to move out of alignment.
  4. Be careful not to over-adjust your sights, as this can make them difficult or impossible to adjust correctly.
  5. If you’re having difficulty adjusting your sights, take them to a qualified gunsmith or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
