Gamo compact screw size ?

Postby perlin » Sat Apr 19, 2014 6:28 am

The rearsight elevation screw is constantly coming loose ( I had heard this is a common problem )...can anyone advise thread size? and is it as simple as fitting a longer screw?
Any help is much appreciated

Never had this on mine, though I did replace my back sight assembly recently, as it was a first generation and the two clamps around the retaining pin had loosened to the point they wouldn't hold the sight in place.

They are quite cheap from Chambers so it might be worth just swapping it outright.

Kind regards,
