Who makes the sight in question. Might be discrepancies per maker
pro-gun gun owners are a minority.
Fair Use applies (U.S. Code Title 17 Chapter 1 Subsection 107)

Interesting question. I don't know the answer. I don't use any sights with rear elevation adjustment. Are you looking for shift in POI at a given distance for each click? It would be different depending on barrel length and ammunition.

This is LOL, I was near certain you'd know the answer to this however I also took into consideration you don't really use them.

What Im really looking for is the value per click (what moa) and its limitations( how many inches are available at its limitations).

Here's from an old old post:
In my Colt Match Target Rifles Manual, it lists the values for elevation on the rear sight per click for both rifle and carbine, fixed or removable carry handle.

20" Rifle, fixed is 1MOA.

16" Carbine, fixed is 1.43MOA.

20" Rifle, removable is 0.53MOA.

16" Carbine, removable is 0.65MOA.
