    ok...I think the new sight I just got in the mail today is broken. I can't seem to tighten the windage bar....is it suppose to tighten via the screw on the top??? it just stays loose...no matter how tight I make the screw, I can still turn the windage knob and move the scope...is it broke?

    Is this a brand new sight or one that someone had, either way in the long run you will be ok. When you have the jam tight be it a knob or the allen set screw your horizontal should stay put even though you can still turn the adjuster there is some give do to the o-ring. If you want you can call them up and ask for Chris. They usually have a no hassle warranty for the life of the sight, Good Luck

    I hope this helps

    thanks....not worried about being able to turn the knob. the scope itself is moveable up and down just by touching it with your fingers. I was thinking of trying to close the clamp a bit in the old vice :noidea:

    Also after looking at your pic there are the 2 set screws holding the scope and bracket tight to the main sight bar you can see there are a bunch of holes to where you can raise or lower the scope for your bow so that you will have all of the area on your tape for marks, there is also a small set screw that holds the scope bracket tight to your jam block this you will see by looking in the scope housing area.

    the jam block is what moves...not the scope housing. the housing is tight against the jam block.

    Let me know if you need any help

    I think I have about 5 of these laying around here between myself and my 2 kids.

    The knob I refered to was also for your left and right not up and down

    ok....feel a little goofy, but I got a different wrench where I had move leverage and was able to tighten the set screw enough to lock it down :frusty:

    But hey....at least I got to talk to Bunny! Thanks for the help Adam and all
