    I'm hoping Vearl sees this. I have an old take down .22, and it shoots VERY high. Like 3 feet high at 100 yards.

    Is there a fix for this other than a high front sight, or mounting a scope?

    Check for a bent barrel, loose barrel, dings in the crown of the muzzle. 3 feet at 100 yards is off the map for sights.

    I did the whole "trouble shoot" thing. No issues, and the gun is like new. Just shoots high.

    I had an Enfield that did the same thing, and fixed that by mounting a scope.

    IF I had it at work and had this problem I would " Adjust the Barrel ".
    YES that's what I said !!
    There is always the possibility that someone replaced the sights (especially the front one) and that is causing the problem. I don't know what sight combo. you have on the rifle. I have seen the rear sight taken off, lost and then replaced with a BAR rear sight which will fit the dove tail but is MUCH higher than the original .22 sight. If you have the fold down rear sight on the rifle it SHOULD NOT have a white on the leaf. If it does it's a BAR sight. Some people are selling BAR sights as replacements because they will fit and most people don't know one from another just by looking at them.

    Thanks, Vearl. I will check it later today. The front sight is the original narrow post with the bead on it. Knowing who owned it before me, I doubt the rear was replaced, but will check it.

    I do have trouble getting a good cheek weld because the rear sight is so low.
