The assembly comprises a shaft and an engagement spring. The engagement spring comprises a longitudinally extending body that turns to form a retaining loop portion comprising an arcuate-shaped member having an opening formed therethrough. The shaft is disposed through the opening of the engagement spring and within the space formed between the windage adjustment and catch plates, and the engagement spring is further engaged with the housing and the crosslock to secure the component parts of the folding sight assembly to one another.
An elevation adjustment sight assembly, comprising a windage carrier, a lift dial, and a lift spring. The windage carrier is specially structured to fit within a housing. The lift dial and the lift spring are specially structured to fit within the windage carrier and are movable in relation to the windage carrier to thereby adjust the height of a sight held by the housing.
