    Default Zenith RS Rear Sight Screw

    Picked up a Z-5RS. Overall, very nice. Good welds, good finish, functions smoothly.

    Is it normal for the rear sight clamping screw to be off center? It's 1/8" or more. I found a YouTube video on sight adjustment by HKParts.net and their example looks the same. Thanks.

    Mine:

    Have you shot it to see if it’s sighted in? Whether it can be sighted or not is all that matters.
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    Just picked it up, so not yet. If it's a common occurrence, fine. If it's not, that's another story. I accepted such things as inherent with AK variant rifles, but this is my first Zenith and roller lock, and am just curious if that's a normal, acceptable military type manufacturing variation for that type of firearm.

    My ATI imported MKE AT94p's are the same way. All on the same machinery stamping these flats for 50 years.

    I’m pretty sure my HKs are that way too. I think it’s a thing.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, the front sight is fixed.
    The top screw is what locks it down the small screw on the side is used for adjustments left and right.

    Very common for the rear sight not to be in the exact center.

    This RMR mount utilizes that screw hole on my Zeniths and SP5Ks. It’s always in that position.
