Help Needed

I have a flinter that is shooting to the right consistantly. How do I move the site to get my impact point to the left? No adjustment screws, dove tailed in barrel.
Thanks in advance, Howard

brass dowel and a small hammer, bang it to the left.. (assuming you are talking about the rear site)

Just a hint, before you drift the sight with a punch and hammer, use a sharp pencil and put a witness mark on the base of the sight and the barrel. That way you can tell how much if any you actually move the sight
tdd, GobbleBuck and Nimrodx like this.

I usually move the front sight first ( as long as the front and rear are already centered on the barrel),
move the front sight in the direction your shooting------if groups are to the right, move front sight to the right,
if groups are low, lower front sight

the rear sight moves opposite than front sight to correct point of impact

a fast easy brass drift if you don't already have one is an empty centerfire cartridge
