Sight adjustment on S&W Straightline

I've acquired a pistol I've wanted for decades. Finally got one.
I pick it up tomorrow.

Now my question. I don't find any info on sight adjustment. Anyone know how the sight works?
There are 2 tiny screws on either side of the sight.
I'm wondering which does what.
I think I remember having a gun with a sight where you backed off one screw and took up the slack with the other. Provided infinite adjustment because there were no predetermined click values.

This is what the pistol looks like:



Any info appreciated.

I'm kind of surprised finding this was as easy. By General Hatch no less too.

You are better than GOOGLE !!!!

I sure couldn't find it. Had to clip it from the webpage as copying is more complicated than I am.

BUT... I have it saved.


THANK YOU !!!!

Now I'm wondering which side is elevation and which is windage.
Might be clearer when I pick up the gun.

I know the screw slots are TEENSY!
