Revolver Sight Pusher

I have a Fisher Sight Pusher that works great on my semi-autos.

But, I have a revolver that I want to move the rear sight on and maybe even replace it at some later date.

However, I am perplexed at moving the rear sight on a snub nose revolver with other than a punch and hammer. I have never seen a sight pusher video or pictures with a revolver.

Is there a sight pusher for a revolver other than brass punch and hammer....I have that also? Never had to move a revolver rear sight. I am left handed and shoot this one revolver to the right. I currently shoot it with the front sight aligned with the left post of the rear sight and shoot it pretty accurately. I have moved the rear sight to the right some, but can not move it more. May end up taking it to my local gunsmith, but maybe at least I can get an idea of some type of tool. On the way to doing some things one learns other things.

At 8-10 yards on a bench rest I am 8-9 inched right.

Thanks!

Wheeler makes a tool, $160 range as I recall.

I think it does all types sights though.

If I'm not mistaken you are adjusting it to the wrong direction.

I'd put the frame in a mill vise, put a piece of brass in the quill and either raise the knee or lower the quill.

Yep. Move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullet strike to move

So if you are shooting to the right and want the strike to move left, move the rear sight left

The Fisher thingy fit the revolver's sight?
Have a look at this first. $160 is a lot of money for a one time thing.
