to raise the bullet impact on a target you must raise the sight itself ?and if that statement is true then why does it not do it ?

You are speaking of the rear sight of course?

Can you tell us more about the firearm you are shooting, the sight, and the ammunition? What you are describing sounds odd, so details please. Rule of thumb: move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to impact on the target.

I had that problem while trying to help a friend site in a flinter. Solution was to get a new sight with more adjustment range.

You need to lower your front sight. I had the same problem with my Lyman GPR and after several sessions with a file --ended up putting a turtle sight on the front end. Problem over. Lowering the front sight will bring the muzzle up.

File a tad bit off the front blade if you are sure the barrel has been thoroughly put through the test---lots of shots that is-----if you file do so ever so gently and shoot ---flie ----shoot--you get the idea

Bunky - I got to disagree with you on this one. If he already has the rear sight as high as it will go, then no amount of filing is going to bring that front sight down to a point where it's going to do him any good. And, most of the front sights on front stuffers tend to widen at the base which means that by the time he files down that far - he will not be able to get daylight on the sides of the front sight when he is looking through the rear notch. I still think he needs to get a very low front sight and go from there.

You move the REAR sight the way you want the bullet to move.
Opposite for the front.

No....you'll be at the range for a very long time if you do this.....and you'll still be scratchin your head.

If you want the bullet to hit higher, move the rear sight higher, if you want the bullet to hit lower, move the rear sight lower.
