    I guess I was lucky mine shoots really true. Can't you buy replacement sights cheap? Pretty sure you can. The front post would do it. Count how many revolutions it takes to detach, then screw the new one down to match. Will get your elevation close.

    I have heard this is a common problem, but i haven't seen it in person yet. Can you post a picture? I assume the WHOLE front sight assembly is canted left or right??

    Yes, it is the whole front sight. Canted to the right, ads. I don't know if a photo can capture the 3-5 degrees it may be off. I'll try:

    Yeah the whole sight is canted to the right (ads) about 3-5 degrees. I don't think I could capture it in a photo.

    Rubber mallet can fix that easily, or you can get a new front sight to put on or have a gunsmith do

    Call me chicken, but i would go with the gunsmith over the rubber mallet.

    this dude on Youtube used the plastic hammer with a nice vice and a boresight. [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lz-f5SBqjX0&feature=related[/ame]
