Adjustable rear sight for Pardini

Post by jmdavis on Mon May 18, 2015 9:10 pm

Do any of you use the adjustable width and height rear sight blade on the SP. I have a number of different blades, but I've yet to find the exact width that works for me. It only took a couple of sessions though with the LP10 to get it tweaked to the point that I don't have nearly as many sight issues. 


Thanks for any info.

My SP rear sight does not have the adjustable aperture.  

My MG-1 and MG-2 do and I find that having the same amount space as the width of the front sight on each side of the front sight works best for me.

The best setup is probably whatever works best for the shooter and personal preference based on what you like to look at.

I believe that 1:2:1 works best for me at this point. That was easy enough to do with the LP10. I had a Pardini fixed blade that was 1:1:1 but it made it difficult for me to see minor variations. The next closest blade that I have to 1:2:1 is just a bit tighter than I would like. 

I am tweaking my prescription and sight blade to optimize my front sight focus. I know that I am losing points to sight alignment sometimes even when I think everything is good. The situation gets worse as my eyes tire.

The adjustable rear sight fit just fine on my `Nygord Pardini. I did order the mounting screws and it was a good thing since the new ones were longer than the fixed sight screws. They were also 1.5mm hex instead of slotted. 

In dryfire I like this addition to the pistol. It was not cheap, but then again, neither is the time spent switching out different fixed blades looking for the right one.

When I was still shooting irons, and aging..Don Nygord recommended that I go to a 5mm front and adjust the rear to my liking, but keep it as tight as possible..  That bit of advice kept me shooting very  good HM scores in PPC for a few years longer..

Thanks Jerry. I've got the 4mm front on now, but I have a 5 in my parts box. It was easy to adjust the rear blade to be the same ratio as I have for my air pistol. 1:2:1. When the rear blade was 1:1:1, it looked great as far as focusing on the front sight, but my alignment would be off sometimes without me noticing it. 

I'm shooting up at Fairfax tomorrow and will be able to give it a good test in the .22 leg match. Of course I will have to check zero in the morning before the match. 

It sure is simpler to set up a dot, though. When the Pardini was down because I was waiting on a buffer, I put a dot on my Benelli to shoot indoors. In the past week I have shot 3 personal bests in 900's with the dot on the Benelli, two at matches, with the highest being 844.

That's interesting advice. Not a fan of it, myself. I tend to take a file and open up the rear notch on a stock BoMar rib with extended front sight on a 1911. The stock ratio is OK under direct sunlight (e.g., Canton and Camp Perry), but anywhere else where the light is sub-optimal*, it's too tight, and the sight edges bleed, and (most importantly) my trigger finger starts to freeze up.

Can't remember what I've done on my Pardini; I don't shoot it for bullseye (only international RF, and sometimes standard pistol), and I know I haven't touched the rear sight gap since I first got it.

I don't think most shooters can hold tight enough to take advantage of a small rear sight gap. I know I don't.

jmdavis, here's a thread where we talked about this before. It has pictures and everything. Smile

* The highest form of marksmanship, in my opinion, is where shooters stand on their hind legs in an open field and fire open sight pistols with one hand - just like at Camp Perry. YMMV. Very Happy

In the mid 60s High Standard deepened their rear sight notches.  I am sure they did it for a reason.   Using the deeper ones works better for me. 

You got to be able to see and stay on the front sight.  The needed widths front and back, depth too, will vary by the lighting and vision acuity.  There will be too wide of light cracks and too narrow for you.  The key is that you see and stay on and frame that front fight in the notch.
