OK, read the posts here and still don’t understand.

 

How do the 2 sides interact?

One side moves sight up or down and the other side moves the sight left or right. There are also posts on how to post pictures.

Yea, and it’s not easy on a mobile phone either.  Mobile browsers just sometimes don’t work.

Here are the photos.

 

Which side is which?  And the little hole does something too.gun1.jpgImage Enlarger

That’s the windage.  Elevation is on top. Hope that helps.

Technically, the glass is always full; half liquid, half air....

The allen head screw on the right side of your sight is for windage. It moves your point of impact right or left depending on which way you turn the screw. Turning it clockwise moves point of impact to the right; counterclockwise moves it left.

The elevation screw (standard slot head) is on the top of the sight body. It moves the point of impact of the bullet up or down, depending on which way you turn it. Clockwise moves point of impact down; counterclockwise moves it up.

These are the only adjustments available for this sight.

Hope this helps.

The early 15-2’s (and I assume all pork chops) have an allen head adjustment screw for elevation instead of a slot head. Same size as the windage and side plate screws. Not sure when they changed.
