hi i have a 1873 trap which was cut down a long time ago and a homemade front sight put on it (its not bad for home made ),it is i/2 " from barrel to top of sight my problem is if you imagine a clock i.m aiming dead center (at 50 yds ) and hitting the #5 on it .

Shorten the front sight to raise POI. Drift the sight in the direction of POI to move the opposite direction.
