Sights

Post by Cptn Jack » Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:00 pm

Hello fellas...i finally worked up some handloads for my 1936 model 81 30 rem

Ive tried some 155gn lead and some 170 speer hcfn

Lead so far not working action but tight groups..speer tight groups as well but they both like to shoot left 3 inches or so at 50 yrds

Are there any adjustments on the factory sights that i might try

Sure love this old beauty...thx in advance for any tips..

Hey Cptn Jack, sights for the 8/81 are just like any other period firearm. Factory rear sights are elevation adjustable, and dovetailed front sights windage adjustable. Just be careful if you decide to drift the front sight you don't want to break off the sight block from the jacket head!
