Wilson fixed sight adjustment?

I had new Wilson sights put on some time ago. My POI is about 2-3" right at 25 yards. I shoot several guns and I'm pretty sure it is not me. If the indoor range has a site adjustment tool I may fuss with it. I'd like to know the star wrench size used on the Wilson rear sights as I would rather buy THE wrench rather than the multi-tool.

Second, the front sight is simply notched into the slide, does it make any sense to move that instead?

Third, The slide is not blue, I will mark both site sides with a sharpie. Does anyone know how far I should move it left to move the POI 3 inches to the left? I'm bringing the micrometer.

I had an old Colt of some sentimental value fixed up awhile ago. The trigger pull was too light to my liking and I stiffened it up a tad (a technical term) with the leaf spring. It is noticeably smoother to shoot but I cannot articulate why. They did polish and/or replace some trigger parts. I blame Wilson for the new Geissele triggers in my ARs.

Any other suggestions are welcome, I'm headed to the range in 2 hours. No hurry

I can't help with measurements as I do it just by micro smidgens at a time.

The current Battlesight uses a T-10 "torx" wrench. Move the rear sight a hair to the left. Don't move the front sight unless it off center. Protect the rear sight with tape..

Distance to move sight to correct at 25 yards = (sight radius*impact error)/900 inches (25 yards)

7"X3"=21
divided by 900=.023"

Here is a sight correction calculator here

Thanks for the intel. The range was packed. One hour wait, no adjustment tool. I ran another 100 rounds and am still not sure it might be me.

Did you shoot standing up or sitting down with gun hand rested somewhat stable on some rigid surface?
