Many understand the significance of certain specific firearm components. Without the trigger mechanism, the firing sequence could not take place. The bolt is necessary to cycle cartridges and casings in and out of the chamber. However, some often overlook the importance of the sighting system. Sure, the iron sights don’t assist in the functionality of a firearm; but try hitting your target without them. Better yet, try it without properly adjusted sights.
To aid you in your pursuit of precision shooting, Keepshooting.com now offers the G3 rear sight windage screw – another original Heckler & Koch part. Most people think of screws as a fastening device. Well, think again. The G3 rear sight windage screw isn’t responsible for fastening at all. Rather, it is used for adjusting the aim point to the left or right. Located at the rear of the receiver in the base of the rotary rear sight assembly, the windage screw – when turned – will move the entire rotary rear sight assembly left or right to compensate for windage. When looking at the underside of the rotary rear sight assembly, you will see a small slot intended to house the screw.
Never worry about unadjusted sights again with our 2-pack of G3 rear sight windage screws – available now for just $5.95.

All this talk about windage, but do we know what it actually is? Windage is the effect of wind on the course of a projectile – in this case a bullet. To adjust the sights, first loosen the rotary rear sight assembly mounting screw. Then, simply turn the windage screw in accordance with the required direction. If the point of impact is to the left of the target, move the sight to the right, and vice versa. Finally, retighten the mounting screw.
