S&Ws solution was to provide lower rear sight assembly.
This would be my recommendation as well. It's not difficult to replace the rear sight blade although it does require a new windage screw and nut (all sold as a kit). As I recall, S&W shipped .44 Mags with the tallest sight blade (.160"?), and both .146" and .126" - and maybe others - are available. It's simple to calculate how much the change in sight height will affect the POI - shows how.

With regard to the muzzle lifting before the bullet exits, there's no question that it does, with the amount of movement dependent on barrel length and muzzle velocity, among other things. Good discussion of that here:
