    Would there be anyone in the Puyallup/Tacoma area that has a sight pusher that I could borrow for a half hour or who could adjust the front sight on my Savage 22 rifle?

    Probably need to just use a punch for that. Have never seen a rifle specific front sight pusher.

    I like to use a length of brass round, or even delrin. Brownells does sell a couple of sight pushers, but I could not justify the expense to adjust one gun

    I didn't know if there was a generic type of sight pusher that would work.
    I tried tapping it with a nylon bushing, but it didn't budge, so I'm kind of leary of damaging it by hitting it too hard.

    billdeserthills, I agree, hard to justify 50-60 to adjust the sight on a 140 gun.
