We have a Bulgarian 74 and a polish tantel that where having some strange problems with. First there reasonably accurate at 100 yards with the russian ammo no keyholes etc. but the problem is they shoot like 12-24 inches atleast off to the left. We've actually run out of windage on the front sight post to move it any further. The polish gun we have to aim 2-3 inches to the right still just to get it in the center of the target.


What could be causing this? Has anyone else heard of these problems before ad whats a good solution? could it be the ammo?? (russian 5.45)


One was a custom build (private individual) and the other was a century (bulgy)

They looked dead straight, but I will check again.


Edit, front sights are perfect.

The tantal has a side folder, does the bulgy? Are the side folders loose at all?

My tantal had a wobbly side folder which resulted in inaccurate shooting.

Ill double check when I get home to see how tight they are. Keep the ideas coming...

if both rifles do this consistently, you either have a strong cross wind at your range or you're putting your head way over the centerline of the stock.
