sig 229 sight alignment

got a used 229 that was shooting to left about 4 inches at 25 yds,checking the sights notice rear sight was a little off to the left,got my sight tool out to put back to center then got to thinking which way should I go with sight to get it to shoot center, so which way am I suppose to move sight.Just seems wrong to go back to center with sight. Thanks in advance for help

Rear sight...move in the direction you want the group to move.

If your guns shoots to the left, move the sight to the right.

Front sight is just the opposite. Move the front sight in the opposite direction you want the groups to move.
