My rifle is shooting about five inches high. Do I turn the elevation adjustment towards "up" or opposite of "up"?

If you have a scope, the adjustment is under the top cap, and you should turn the adjustment 'down'. If you have iron sights, you would adjust the rear sight in the same direction that you want to move the bullet on the target (also 'down'). The opposite is true if you are adjusting the front sight.

How Do I adjust the sights on my savage 64 LR its shooting High and its brand new

The rear sight has an elevation adjustment that looks like a stepped wedge. To lower the point of impact, you must lower the rear sight. If you have additional steps on the low end of the elevator, make the adjustment by slightly springing the sight up and sliding the elevator to a lower step. If you're on the bottom step, you can get a taller blade for the front sight (preferred) or file the notch deeper into the wedge. Try different types of ammo before making permanent changes. Guns can be picky about their diet.

Adjusting rear sights

The rear sights on your Ruger pistol should be installed in a dovetail, to adjust the rear sight you drift the sight to the desired position. Secure the pistol in a vice ( wrap to prevent marring) use a brass punch and hammer to tap the sight base, it may be tight but once it breaks free it will move.

I have a Ruger 9MM and I am hitting 1 inch low. How do I ajust the sights to raise it?

  1. Loosen the rear sight set screw with the screwdriver by turning it counterclockwise.

  2. 2

    Use your fingers or a punch--it should be brass or plastic to keep it from marring the metal--to tap the sight either left or right as needed.

  3. 3

    Tighten the screw back down with the screwdriver to secure the rear sight in place.

  4. 4

    Fire four or five rounds with the new sight adjustments to make sure the sight has been adjusted properly. Repeat steps one through three as needed until the sights are adjusted correctly.

Have no idea how to set up the sight on my air gun

I don't have this particular model. Chances are, those are not "knobs" but caps. Remove the caps as you would remove the caps from a pill bottle. Underneath, you should find the adjustment dials for windage and elevation,

I am trying to bore sight a rifle with a center point 4x16x40 and i run out of adjustment to get the lazer to align with the cross hairs

When bore sighting you need to adjust in small steps and "TAP" the bore or the main body of your scope to cause a golt, as when shooting your gun it will kick and cause the scope cross hairs to take their set.  Tap it with a med sized screw driver handle. Make a small adjustment and tap it, adjust and tap.
