My GI model is shooting a bit to the left. How does everyone usually adjust, non adjustable rear sights, drift it over using a hardwood dowel? Or does someone make a tool to do it (this would be nice, I love special tools!!)? I did a quick search on Brownells and came up with nothing.

I think you just use a brass punch and drift them, but not completely sure on that.

I can sure do that. But it would be nice to have a screw type press tool to incrementally move it from side to side without beating on it.

Put masking tape on the side of the slide and clamp it in the tool below. Use a bolt with a brass tip insert and ratchet handle to gently push the sight to the desired position. Afterwards, use a little Sweets to clean up the brass smear on the side of the sight.

It's a manly device for the tool aficionado and built like a brick sh!thouse to last 1000 years.

Thanks DnPRK, but..

Damn!! $119!! I know what your thinking, "never satisfied". I'll have to give it some thought. Maybe I'll send in my C&R FFL to get the discount.
