Sight adjustment

I finally had the chance to shoot my NIB Springfield XD compact .45 yesterday. Right off I noticed that the rear sight of the Trijicon night sights was shifted to the right. When I fired the gun, all my shots were to the right. I was wondering if anyone knows the best way to drift these dovetail sights. I dont want to send it to the factory, and I dont want a gunsmith to do it. Does anyone have any suggestions. Other than that, the gun shoots beautifully, very little felt recoil, accurate, a very great gun.

Drifting the sights.

You can use a hammer and plastic or wood punch to drift the rear sight. You can also use a sight adjustment tool designed for your gun, but they cost about 130 bucks apiece.

It is a black delrin punch I bought from Midwayusa, but I can't find it now. They are also sold in harware stores, just make sure it is made of delrin, and youll never have a problem with marring your finish

I put the gun on the board and hold it in place with my hand. But I did it at the range so I could fire a group after each adjustment rather than hope I tapped enough at the house.
