Universal Air Pistol Sighting Adjustments Cheatsheet

This list compiles the elevation and windage information for modern precision and rapid fire pneumatic air pistols that can be seen in competitions and clubs. Most recent models go first.

After the name of each model you find how many millimeters (mm) does the impact change at 10m.

The manuals are linked on the model of each pistol.

If you want to add or correct a pistol’s information, please leave a comment.

If you appreciate all the work I’ve put in creating this and other helpful pistol resources, please consider becoming a patron or to

  1. Walther LP500 sight adjustments shown above are incorrect and are actually the opposite.

    Correction for high shot: Turn the adjusting screw clockwise
    Correction for low shot: Turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise.

    Correction for shots to the right: Turn the adjusting screw clockwise.
    Correction for shots to the left: Turn the adjusting screw counterclockwise.
