Trying to adjust the fixed rear sights on my Valor, need the gun to shoot to the right. Which way should I drift the sight? Thanks for any help, Dave

It has the stock sights on it, but they are drift adjustable in the dovetail. All you do is loosen the 2 screws under the sight blade, and use a punch to move the base whichever way you need them to go.

Then if your are trying to adjust the gun to shoot to the right move the sights to the right..
Yep. BTW, I do this to all my 1911's. I sent thousands of rounds down the pipe, trying to determine what I was doing wrong...... At the advice of my buddy, I slid the rear sight to the right and BAM. POA = POI.

Rear sight in the direction you want the bullet to impact. Front sight in the opposite direction.

I'm guessing that was cheaper than having a surgeon adjust your eyes in your head?
