Try a brass punch and a little more hammer, it will move.
That's what I mean. The rear sight is centered in relation to the centerline of the slide. The front sight is to the right in relation to the slide and the pistol is shooting to the right, so to move the point of impact I need to move the front sight to the right to move the point of impact to Like windage for an AK. I think. I'm dead tired now.Dan Burwell said:TS,
Are you sure your sight is to the right?
Usually you need to move the front sight opposite direction you need the group to move and the rear the same direction you need to group to move.
To move the front sight you need a good sturdy vise, a brass rod (nylon will not work), and a good sized hammer. I would just take it the whole way out clean out the dovetail (degrease) and use some red locktitie before reinstalling the sight to the center of the slide. I have yet to see a M&P that didn't hit center with both the front and the rear centered in the slide.
