    I'm looking for an adjustable front sight for a S&W K frame. It was re-barreled but shoots low and to the left with factory FMJ ammo, hundreds of rounds and various shooters I'm certain it's not me.

    The rear sights are dovetails in the frame, so I guess my option is to grind off the front sight and epoxy some adjustable one on there.

    Any recommendations?

    Not epoxy - dovetail:

    You have a machinist mill your existing sight flat and do a dovetail for this.

    Freedom Arms sells these in three heights, any of which can of course be shaved some if needed. They are selling them to anybody, not just FA owners and they're turning up on some custom Rugers. They're not in their catalogs yet but you can call them up and ask which heights are available. Pass that to your gunsmith, ask him which height would match your gun best.
