I've had previous experience with aperture sights shifting because of the double recoil of high powered springers. There is a threaded M3 hole on the K98 scope rail. I installed a M3X0.56 grub screw and then
backed the Williams aperture sight against it. I used Loctite on the grub screw aperture sight mount screws to secure everything. The sight has remained anchored to its post after several hundred shoots. Accuracy is superb.
I shoot from a rest since the rifles are quite heavy. The .22 likes JSB 13.43 pellets; the .177 shoots JSB and H&N pellets of the same weight well. I love shooting my K98s. However I cringe each time I cock the rifles because of the failure prone cocking mechanism. The cocking effort takes strength. Be prepared for a workout.
