    Looking for information of a Woodsman Series III adjustable sight??

    Have a Hunstman .22, with a "Targetsman rear" sight.

    Does any one have the Colt instructions for this sight. Refrer to photo below.

    Thanks,

    JJR

    That looks like an aftermarket adjustable sight sold by Pachmayr.

    I believe that is an aftermarket rear sight. Maybe a Pachmayr or an MMC. It is definitely not a Colt sight.
    The reason I carry a .45 is, Colt Don't make a .46

    Colt Targetsman "Economy" rear sight

    It appears to me that your rear sight could be from a Targetsman, but clearer pic's would tell for sure. In the mean time here are a couple of pic's of my '59 Colt Targetsman rear sight to compare with yours.
    For adjustment purposes, the top screw adjusts the elevation (turn the screw clockwise to lower the blade) the left side screw adjusts the windage (turning clockwise moves the blade to the left)

    Prewoodman has ID'd it as Colt made item.

    Thanks for the Elevation and windage info.

    I believe you are correct that it is a Targetsman sight. I will search for Colt instructions. I know that Targetsman rear sights will fit a Huntsman slide.
