I have an old Nylon 66 that was given to me by my grandfather about a year ago. I finally got some time to really play with it, just recently. As I was adjusting the rear sight a bit the adjustment screw popped up from the sight post. I have tried to screw it back in but it looks like it puts the screw at an odd angle when I press on the sight post causing the threading to be unable to catch.

Anyone have any experience with Nylon 66s? Or any tips on what I can do, or would be best to just bring it to a gunsmith?
I can snap a couple pics if needed. I know my description isn't the best.

You might have messed up the threads trying to put it back in. You have to be straight,the metal is soft. You might have to re-thread the screw. I have a nylon 66 from about 1964 and love it. It is such an easy rifle to shoot. A tap and die set can be your best friend! ps- thanks doc, Semper Fi!
