View Full Version : Adjusting rear sight on HK-91, PTR-91, Vector V-51
03-04-2007, 12:28 PM
Specifically, I have a Vector V-51 model. Currently my rear site is set on the v-notch. How do I get the thing to turn to the 100, 200 and 300yd peep hole settings? Also, how do you adjust the elevation? I tried a quick search for a rear sight adjustment tool but no luck.
Are there any folks here that have a V-51? Vector does some major mods to make these PTR's into the pistol version and I was wondering about getting replacement parts if needed (IE bolts and recoil springs).

you should be able to spin the drum simply by hand. if you remove the rear sight, there is a spring that holds a ball bearing under the sight drum. for some reason on my v93 the was really tight/ and damaged. elevation is done with a special hk tool - though I can remember someone talking about a hemostat? Ideally the elevation is already correct :)
Vector sent a new one but it still was not a slick as on a PTR, so I clipped the spring a little (one coil?) and that helped the pressure on the ball bearing which in turn allowed me to hand turn the drum...
as far as turning your V51 into a pistol - i think that is illegal!! I am sure other board members can chime in on that.

Thats it! It turns by hand. It's just that the detents really hold it in place, which is a good thing. I doubt that I'll need to adjust elevation. I havn't set it up on a bench and really checked to see if it was perfect. Me and a few buddies usually go to the mountains and shoot about twice a month but it's usually not optimal conditions to be sighting in a rifle.
The rifle is actually the V-51 "rifle" version of the pistol. Vector welded an extention on the 8" barrel to bring it out to 16". There's some pics over at http://www.vectorarms.com

Thanks for the info!
Now, where can I get a rear sight tool if I happen to need one?

you could make one ;) it's just 2 prongs.

+1 for Robert RTG
Gordon Miller http://www.hkspecialist.net or Adam Webber http://www.hkparts.net should have the sight tools. I have dealt with both before, if they dont have it, they can get it for you.
