    Type 2 rear sight problem

    My ’42 Garand came from CMP with the T105 rear sight. I wanted something more correct for the rifle. I found a Type 2 lock-bar complete sight. I have it on the rifle but I’m having problems with the windage adjustment. It will adjust fully to the left from center, but will not move to the right from center. I’ve taken it out and put back in several times and I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I have the sight centered when I insert the pinion. Figure it’s something simple and dumb. Any ideas?

    Remove the sight assembly from the rifle and hold it in your hand. Does the windage adjustment work now ?

      I found the problem. I switched sight bases and it works fine. Apparently the threads on the windage side of the base are damaged.
