I recently picked up a Stag 3T-M and took it to the range today for the first time. My model came with Diamondhead flip up fr/rr sights. The barrel is 1/9 and was shooting 55 gr ammo. At 25 yards, and having good co-witness my shots would be about 10 in too high from what I was aiming at. I tried adjusting the elevation on my front sight. I believe the post moves up when rotating it clockwise, but I'm not totally sure. I also don't know how much it rises per turn of the post. I turned it 4 full turns clockwise. I would then say at 25 yards, it was maybe 8 in too high.
I moved to the 50 yard range for a short time. Didn't have a spotting scope with me so I don't know how high the shots were impacting.
Do I just keep turning the front sight post until it is zeroed in? And I don't know if I was adjusting the elevation correctly, so I didn't want to keep turning the front sight post.
