Default New SW1911

After opening my Christmas present (a stainless SW1911) and the subsequent trip to buy ammot to try it out. I am very pleased with the performance. The only flaw that I can see with the performance is that the sights need to be adjusted for me as they are impacting slightly to the left at 25 yards.

Where can I find dovetailed tritium sights that are adjustable?

I have Shot about 10 mags in this pistol down range. I was able to adjust the rear sight today and got my group where I like. I am overall very pleased with the size of groups too.

I checked brownell's, I am not trying to sound stupid.
I am a S&W M&P40 armorer as well as a glock // Brownell's does not list the specifications on the rear sights if they are dovetailed or not.. are these generally the same size on all 1911?
