Re Buffington sight adjustments

Jim, I highly recommend using Kroil for your problem. The problem you describe is fairly common, and I have had it, too. The biggest thing is not to get in a hurry It might take days. But, apply the Kroil to the Buffington sight, and then let it sit. You might do some tapping with a wood block, which will help the Kroil to penetrate between the parts a little more quickly. The first thing you will notice is the dirt and dried oil emulsifying and wiping off easily. It just means the Kroil is working. The knobs are fairly strong, and from time to time, start testing them. As the Kroil continues to work, youll notice the knobs turning more easily, and the windage function will start working somewhat. The elevation slide will also start to move. As I said, it just takes time and patience. Use the wood block to tap on it so you wont damage the steel, and a plastic brush, like that found on an M16 cleaning brush will help remove the caked on crud without damaging the sight as well. Have I said to be patient Be patient
