Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

M78 Vetterli rear sight adjust

Ok. So the front sight doesn’t adjust for windage.
Why can’t the rear sight be drifted for windage in the huge dove tail slot it sits in?

Why can’t it ... ? And of course I’ve been known to bend a barrel or two. Actually 5, but only one was a modern centerfire. The others are BP replica fowlers and that’s how you adjust to your point of aim from load of choice.
