You are going the wrong way with your adjustments. First, tap that front sight back to the exact middle of the dovetail. Leave it alone , never touch it again. Second, lower the rear sight back down a little lower than you started. Make sure it is also in the middle of it's left/right adjustment. Third "elevation " is up or down. "Windage" is left and right. Fourth, it is not possible that there is no provision for windage on the rear sight. At a minimum you use a small brass drift and tap it to the right to move point of impact to the right. You can see how the very front of the rear sight is mounted in a dovetail on the barrel which allows side to side movement.

What you said exactly, I got it in my thick head the rear sight was fixed, not seeing the dove tail slot. I did use the wrong word above, I sometimes mirror things like that, measure up a piece of sheetrock, with some cuts, and have done it precise, but in reverse ! We all have our "quirks", ole 'chucky gets me rattled a bit too, getting inside the wire, threatening my summer enjoyment of clean fresh produce, all hands on deck, traps, guns what have you !

That last bit of information, I see the dovetail now .... (red faced over here LOL !) But hey, I know now, and at least it groups nice, now I'll get 'er zero'd, well as soon as I get the darned extractor just right, they are finicky on this rifle, you have to ever so slightly bend the one tang out once its on the bolt, I adjusted the feed ramp cut in the other side, thinking that was it, as it did not match the old one, would not feed, was too stiff, $11.00 mistake LOL ! Does not grab right, a spent shell pulls a lot harder than a live one, which proved itself when shooting.
