Default Remington R1 Adj front sight?

Hi All. Anyone have the Remington 1911 R1? I’m trying to adjust the front sight left to right, but I can’t figure out what kind of screw driver / allen wrench to use. None of the tools I have seem to fit. Anyone know how to loosen up that front sight?

Any particular reason why you're adjusting the front sight? Typically, adjustments are made with the rear sight first before doing anything to the front sight.

I guess i could knock the rear sight left to right, didn't think of that. Just figured that it would be easy to loosen the set screw on the front sight and pat it over just a bit, then re tighten.

Use this acronym in reference to point of impact: FORS. Front-Opposite, Rear-Same.

To move your point of impact left, you'd either move the front sight right or the rear sight left.
