TO ADJUST THE REAR SIGHT:

Move the rear sight in the same direction as you need to move the bullet on the target. See Picture 15.
model_seven_operating_07_picture_15.png

NOTE: For more on ballistics and trajectory, see the REMINGTON® catalog.

For the Model 673™ ONLY. The rear sight elevation screw is located ahead of the rear sight aperture. The point of aim is adjusted by using a 1/16” hex wrench. To raise the point of impact turn the elevation screw clockwise. See Picture 15a.

The ventilated rib is screwed to the barrel and is isolated through the use of synthetic buffers, both above and below the rib. The design allows the rib to “float”. In this way the barrel moves independently of the rib ensuring accuracy. Disassembly is not recommended.

TELESCOPIC SIGHTS:

The top of the receiver has holes for the installation of telescopic sights.
