Winchester 61 is shooting two inches to the right at 30 yards. I believe a sight adjustment of 1mm or so will correct the problem.
I could move the rear sight to the left or the front sight to the right.
Here is where I am confused. I have read here and other places I think that I should try to adjust the rear sight and I have also read that I should adjust the front sight?
Please help me. Is there a definitive answer as to which sight is the best to adjust, front or rear?
And apologies if this has been clearly discussed someplace else on the forum. I can’t find a clear answer if it is posted.
Thanks much as always.

It does not matter but I would look at each to see if one is off center and can be moved back to correct the point of impact.

If you want change your point of aim to be to the right, move the rear sight to the right, and vice versa if wanting needing to adjust to shoot to the left. Alternately, you could move the front sight just the opposite–if you want the point of aim to shoot to the right, move the front sight to the left.
