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.

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.
