How to adjust a S&W revolver rear sight

revo sight adjustment

I could have used this a few days ago at the range! S&W doesn’t put “turn this way for down” on their sights, so having a diagram is handy. Or you could use the completely idiotic mnemonic device “Clock-DAR” which stands for “clockwise down and right” because turning the adjustment screws clockwise will move your point of impact down or to the right, respectively.


  1. Good info, but I always carry a S&W revo/ pistol manual in my range bag when practicing.
