I bought a WASR10 AK47 last week and didn't notice the front sight was tilted to the left a little bit. Not much but maybe less than an 1/8". I mean the entire front sight housing that fits directly onto the barrel and seems to be attached with 2 pins.

Now the windage adjustable sight in the middle was set to the right.

My question are:

1. Can this be fixed?
2. Do they test fire these guns before sale and was the front sight set to the right to compensate for the housing off to the left?

I have the windage and elevation tool to set the front sight but can the housing itself be corrected?

I went back to the gun dealer and asked to see another AK just like mine and the same condition was present just in the opposite directions.

Any help would be appriciated.
