Adjusting windage on a front sight

Move the front sight the opposite direction you want to move the impact. . . Adjusting windage on a front sight uses the same thinking process as in the tip above. Moving a front sight left moves the impact to the right. Care should be used as you drift your sights, front or back. Hopefully your sights are movable with a modest blow. A brass drift pin is ideal. If your sight moves too easily, you may be able to tighten the fit by striking the dove tail nock with a center punch, making a dimple or two. This raises the metal around the dimple and tightens the fit of the sight.
