What am I doing wrong? I have one of those TAPCO two pronged sight adjusting tools, the spanish Imbel manual, and my pea brain. Looks like I should push the adjuster into the front sight holes and turn, well I do that and nothing happens. Anyone have any advice? The manual shows the thing screwing all the way out. BTW, it is an Imbel metric rifle (not put together yet). Thanks for any help. :confused:

Does it turn at all?

Soak in Kroil or other penetrant. Many rifles, improperly maintained, have bound-up foresights due to gas/sludge/carbon intrusion under the sight.

Be patient.

Thanks,
I'll let it soak.
