Raising the rear sight should have made it shoot even HIGHER!

I always reverse things in my head for some reason, dyslexia maybe, I meant to write lower ! LOL !

I will play the part of the fool today, I could not see the dove tail in the rear sight, and a darned fool I am LOL !!!, I looked up the parts diagram ok, a brass drift and nylon hammer and a few taps, shoot and see..... ! I don't know what the heck it is, I should have seen that dovetail on the barrel though, just got it in my head it was fixed, I knew better, just been forever since I have fooled with iron sights. So I'll tap the front sight back to center, then adjust the rear accordingly while shooting from a good rest.

NOw if'n I can find some scope mounts if thats what those 2 small slots are in the receiver !

Self answered, I'll take the dunce cap award today LOL !!

The two grooves in the receiver take a standard 22RF scope mount. Nearly all 22s made in the last 40-50 years have the same system. Some scope makers also make a set of adapter rings to mount a better 1" tube scope on those grooves.

Thanks Ken, I figured it was likely a common arrangement, I did not know the name or nomenclature to search it. I'll get back to it when the new extractor arrives, sight in the iron sights, then likely put a scope on it for the longer shots, then post back about it.

If you mount a scope your iron sights will not be usable. Exception being the really tall see through mounts which are NOT suitable for .22. If you think you will be shooting in low light, or dark conditions, then get an inexpensive 4X power scope. Tape a scorpion type light to the barrel. That's my sweet corn coon gun. The other is my first gun, a 1950 H&R single shot .410 3 inch 4's are deadly and it has a pair of scorpions on it. I probably would work well at night for marauding raptors perched about the place but I wouldn't know about that.

Right again, I have that option on my M1A with a 3rd generation mount, but even with the inexpensive scope on it, I have taken many deer in low light situations, it sure gives you more opportunities in low light, even better if I had the illuminated reticle, red dot, range finder springfield used to offer. I figure until I get what I need for the 783, I'll get familiar with shooting it, iron sights, then more than likely install a scope, spring time I can nail a few 'chucks early and can see them easily at much longer distances, try to get this population down, now is tough as they are elusive enough and sure are persistent at times.

The best flash light I have ever used and is suitable to mount, is a MXDL SA-T68, sold on ebay, the barrel of it is machined flat, I can illuminate easily 100 yds out, its an LED with 3 levels of power, strobe and SOS to signal for help, foreign made but there is literally nothing as bright, if it reflects off something its blinding.
