Stainless target II, rear sight adjustment

I have noticed that the elevation screw on my rear sight has started moving position after I have set it, and then shot around 20 rounds. When I turn the screw it does not click with each small increment, unlike the windage screw which does click with every small increment and never moves on its own. Could anyone tell me if it is normal for the elevation screw not to click when turned. is offline   Reply With Quote

That's a good question, I've never owned a Kimber that has factory adjustable sights. I'd suggest you give Kimbers customer service a call.

Thanks for the info Chuck, I ended up taking it back to where I bought it, and they told me the screw was worn out, which was a bit odd considering the handgun is only 5 months old, and I have only put about 800 rounds through it and only turned the screw about a dozen times. The good news is that Kimber have agreed to send me an entire new rear adjustable sight rather than replace just the screw, bad news is I live in Australia so it may take a while

Matty what are your laws for gun ownership and do you have CCW there? Are gun shops and their available product line as open as here? Thanks for the info, John
