I was referring to the bit of glass in the OPs front sight.

I have seen sights of this type before, but never with any glass involved. Just iron apertures. What does the glass do?

So was I. It's circular piece of plastic with the black printed on it. It does not magnify, so it is not a lens of any kind. Mostly you see them as a black printed circle or circles, without the 'supporting sidebar'. The idea of the 'supporting sidebar' is to assist the shooter in keeping the sights level when holding the rifle in the shooting stance - usually standing with this kind of rifle, which is common in the German Jaeger-style shooting competition for which this rifle was designed - hence the title KKJ - Kleinkaliber Jaeger - Jaeger = German for hunter.

I ran the low end ammo just to see what it would do. The Norma ammo is decent in my other .22's and fits my budget. I do have a few boxes of Eley Club I'll try once I adjust the trigger.

I see. I was under the mistaken assumption that it was a piece of glass in front of an iron aperture.

I didn't realize that the aperture was imprinted on a piece of plastic.


I assumed it was like this picture:

I spent the morning working on the rear sight. It was DIRTY. I found the looseness issue, the 2 top [in the pic] silver screws were loose. No movement now. Sight was also too far forward, and I adjusted the butt pad. Trying again tomorrow with Eley Club. I have a brick of RWS on the way, Gonna see if I can do the rifle justice.

Took it to the range again today. Better results with Eley Club, but the front sight isn't to my liking. Will try again with the post front sight when it arrives. I did hit 15 for 15 shooting steel @ 150 yards.
