2 Model 60 questions.....

1123 19
#1 Will the 60 work with sub-sonic ammo?

#2 Has anyone had any luck with the open sights?

510's shoot fine out of my rifle but I was just wondering if the subs would work. I have a scope on the rifle but want to take it off and just use the open sights. I've never even shot it without the scope so I'm curious to find out how it will do. The rifle is a knock around the woods gun so I want to keep it simple.

To answer your second question, yes, the open sights are quite reliable.

The thing that is needed, is a tool to "drift' the sight in it,s dovetail. The one best method is to buy a tool from Brownells known as a "sight pusher" ... They sell for about $25 .... Other than that, you can use a brass punch (about 1/4" diameter and a small tap hammer. when using this method, it is a good idea to place reference marks between the dovetail and the barrel ... Thus you can see how far (left or right) you have moved the sight.

Eleveation is much easier ... Simply slide the notched leaf up or down as needed.

I like to set my open sights at around 60 yards, and use "Kentucky windage" as targets vary in range.
