adjust lateral POI

Is there a way to adjust my front sights or something to fix my guide gun's problem of shooting to the right? its about 5 inches at 100 yards. Ive got the standard open sights that come with the 1895 gs.

If the front sight is dovetailed than you can drift it to change windage. Make sure you use a brass or plastic drift as it's very easy to ding the sight or barrel. If your front sight is a fixed ramp type than there is no adjustment possible. You should be able to correct it by drifting the rear sight. Remember, move the rear sight in the direction you want to move the point of impact, front sight is the opposite.
thanks. It wasn't moving earlier probably because I wasn't trying hard enough. Now I know that its meant to, I'll give it a little more effort
