    tangent sights on mauser 98

    So I recently picked up a K98 mauser for next to notthing. Be it that this is my first rifle, this is going to sound stupid. How do you figure out how to set the tangent sights for your distance? (slide rear sight)
    Where is my donkey?

    Mauser 98 sight adjustment.

    Good question. You want to set the forward edge of the two dog ears on the horizontal line just below the mark(for meters in 100m. increments).Even at its lowest setting most will shoot high out to 300 m.,as this was battle sight zero for a human size target and provided a grazing fire out to 300m.Be careful to watch for any signs of high pressure(hard to open bolt,cratered primers,etc.)especially if serial number and bolt numbers do not match....Enjoy.
