Ok. So the front sight doesn’t adjust for windage.
Why can’t the rear sight be drifted for windage in the huge dove tail slot it sits in?

Why can’t it ... ? And of course I’ve been known to bend a barrel or two. Actually 5, but only one was a modern centerfire. The others are BP replica fowlers and that’s how you adjust to your point of aim from load of choice.
