Hi all again,
Sorry i know ive been making a general nuisance of myself around here lately but i've been frustrated constantly by my beloved henry .22. An unknown incident ( i believe it was something to do wiht a poorly mounted scope) has bent my iron sights so they are canted off to the left. It creates a crooked sight picture while looking down the barrel and its rendered the sights usless for hunting and just about anything else. I've tried clamping it for longs periods of time but not persistantly and im slightly resistant to taking it to a gunsmith (trying to save up for a new bigbore rifle) but i will if thats what it takes. Any suggestions or experience with this?

The rear sight? A photo would help. If you bent the sight when you tightened down the scope you can bend it back with a brass punch. The rifle well need to be firmly mounted in a vise.
