H&R Model 939 Sight Adjustment?

I'm in process of getting my Dad's H&R Model 939 up and running. This is a nine shot revolver, flat side 6" barrel, swing out cylinder, vent rib, adjustable rear sight, built in trigger lock mechanism..

I've searched for an online source for the owners manual, and for a "how-to" on adjusting the sight. I've come up with an empty sack. I did see (on this forum I think) it is necessary to loosen the very small set screw just forward of the rear sight adjusting screw on the right side of the pistol.

I backed out the set screw until it was maybe .075" proud of the frame. Then turned the serrated edge adjusting screw on the right side of the sight. This causes the rear sight to tilt fore and aft to change elevation.

On the left side of the sight is what appears to be the sight shaft staked to a retainer nut.

Problem is I cannot conjure how to adjust the windage.

Question: Can anyone point me to a source for a Model 939 owners manual and/or tell me how to adjust the windage on this unit?

Thanks

Jim
