Yesterday I spent over an hour trying to move it over on my vise. Next was a 3# hammer/drift. Then today a shop (and I) used a Meprolight sight mover...that didn't work either.

Let me guess, send it in to Springfield? :x

On my gun I see little lines on the slide where it seems the sights should be lined up and on the rear sight it is slightly off. Is this a major no no or will I be fine? Its like maybe half a millimeter off or less.

Shoot man, my sight is 1mm left of the line.

Bigger hammer? The last thing I want to do is crack/bend the slide. I'm telling you, I've really wailed on this to the point of permanent finish damage. Not that I care how it looks, but don't need it to jam when I need it most. Even the guy at the store wouldn't crank past a certain point with the pusher.

I'm not trying to hit anything at 25 yards. I'm shooting standard 7-10 yard distances.

EDIT: Believe me, it's more than a foot to the left at 25 yards as it is.

Ding ding ding! One-eyed fatman wins the prize. It worked. I put it in the vise, whacked it good with a drift and 3# hammer, and voila...back on center.

My sight looks like crap now, but oh well. Thanks man.
