View Full Version : Nylon 66 sight problem

April 14, 2010, 03:34 PM
I bought an Apache Black Nylon 66 last week, and was pleased to discover it's one of the oldest models, from 1962, without even a serial number as required by the GCA in 1968.

However, there is a small problem. The rear sight is canted to the far right by the worm gear/screw that turns it, and there's no adjustment point for it. On another board, someone said there's no dial, as on the range adjustment, just an inlet for a screwdriver on the left side of the sight. I don't even have that.

I can try to shoot it using Kentucky windage, but it would be nice to be able to adjust it to either side or leave it in the center, if necessary. Anyone have an idea how I can turn the screw? I might be able to get a tiny needlenosepliers in there, but maybe not.

The folks over at the Nylon 66 forum would most likely have a lot of experience with your situation.
