I have about 100 rounds through my WWII Mil-Spec.

My WWII is very well made. I changed out the trigger, mainspring housing, hammer, and slide stop to make it look more like a real GI. I absolutely love it.

However, I do have one problem. It shoots to the right. I need to drift the sight. Now, can someone advise me on the best way to accomplish this? On a Sistema I once had, I could drift the sight using a rubber mallet. No mas, on the Springfield. The sight fits too snugly in the dovetail to move with a rubber mallet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if a delrin punch would be stiff enough for your situation. You could try a regular steel punch with a bit of duct tape on the end to protect from marring anything. You could always try a brass punch as well, but it'll leave a small bit of brass smudges behind which can be scrubbed off.

Thanks for the info. I will look into buying a punch or a sight press, or maybe just take it to my local gunsmith.
