    Valmet M78 rear sight parts break down

    Iíve got an M78 that I think is missing some parts in the rear sight. The screw doesnít adjust the height. Thereís nothing inside there but the locking screw and the sight. The sight sits in the lowest setting and will move up but wonít stay. Iím specifically talking about the height adjustment not the distance. I can slide it up for further distances but I canít adjust the height. Does anyone have an M78 they can send a picture or two of the inner workings? Any knowledge of the rear sight on this would be helpful too. My google-fu came up with nothing useful.

    I did. I got four barrels QPQ treated. I would have preferred chrome lined but this was the best I could get. Itís running great.

    PM me an email or phone number and I'll text/email photos this evening. My m78 had a heavy workout last weekend, that poor barrel.

    I went to a Christmas shoot a few years back and let a number of people shoot mine. I think it took maybe 2000 rounds in two to three hours. That was the end of it.
    I sent my number. Thank you!
