Adjustment of the sight is quite simple. For windage, the set screw on the left side of the base is loosened with the included .050” hex key, and as previously mentioned, repositioned with a punch (punch should have blunt flat face and contact only the dovetail area). For elevation, use the same .050” hex key (or anything small and pointed – toothpicks work well) to depress the detent plunger on the right side of the base and twist the sight blade counterclockwise to raise the point of impact, clockwise to lower. Release detent to lock blade at the proper position.
Please do not use a sight pusher, and always wear eye protection.
This sight will fit the dovetail cut on the original 1911 Government Issue model, with some mild fitting involved. Please see sight dovetail pictures to verify correct application. The slide dovetail drawing can be found at 1911 dovetail.
The factory fixed rear sight is to be driven from the dovetail (usually left to right) with the proper punch. Don’t forget to use eye protection. The MMC sight is then fit to the slide by flat filing the ribs on the bottom of the dovetail until a tight interference fit is achieved. The left side set screw provides additional security.
