I finally was released from retina surgery to shoot my 29-5. My elevation is at the max and it is still shooting low.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks

Move the rear sight in the direction you want the shots to move on target.

If you want the shots on target to rise, move up the rear sight. If "to the max" is already as high as it will go, you might need a different height front sight (a lower one up front).

Double check that the adjustment of the rear sight actually did what you intended, and that everything is assembled and mounted correctly.

What distance is your target? What weight bullet are you shooting? What pressure is the cartridge?

Thanks for making me re think this , I read the manual again and it is opposite what I thought
"To raise the point of impact, raise the rear sight by turning the elevation screw counterclockwise one or two clicks at a time."
I appreciate this.

This is why I like fixed sights. Need more elevation just raise the front sight higher. Elmer Keith would mark his front sights with gold bans for different distances. Read his stories and he will describe it to you.:)

If it was some Ruger you may have been correct. Some of their rear sights are bass akwards:)
