theres a set screw that needs to be screwed in tightly. Its on the passenger side and uses an hex head tool.

the new englander uses a spring system for the up down adjustments.i dont like it at all. they can come loose. i found that out while balancing the gun on my shoulder. i added loctite to the screws. better yet put a scope on it!

Put a scope on it?[:'(] While hes at it, why not just add a new barrel and shoot smokeless powder and call it traditional!

I put a red fiber optic front sight on mine and it works well with the regular rear sight.
