>>36848168>how do you adjust elevation on a M96 Swedish mauser
Other than the range slider on the sight, there is no way to adjust the elevation. The rifles where sighted by the armory before being issued and controlled in regular intervals.
Any deviations where recorded on the little brass disc on the rifle so the shooter would know how high/low his rifle shot.
If it was too worn or shot too far off it would be rebarreled and refurbished before being issued again.
Since these adjustments where deemed too complicated for conscripts, there was no need to add any way to adjust the elevation without an armorers tools.
I have heard that shooting with the bayonet fixed would change the zero from 300m to 100m when using Sk Ptr m/94 Prj M/40 but i would take it with a grain of salt.
I think the easiest way to adjust the elevation is to buy a tall front post and then filing it down until it shoots to your standards.
