    The sights were installed by the dealer at time of purchase. They did it all and the n/s were in stock at their place. These are SA36 sights made for the SW1911. The rear sight moves right. It got really bad but I didn't do anything because I didn't know better. I had it straightened at range a week ago. Then with it in the holster and carrying it today, noticed it moved slightly again. I can't move it by hand and a hammer/punch isn't working either (I don't have a vice though). I'm taking it back to the original dealer to get it pressed back to center and see what I can get for a permanent fix.

    Installing sights is an art form requiring patience and the proper tools. In your situation the sight can be removed and the bottom of the sight channel roughed up a bit with a punch to raise some of the material. In essence, making the channel smaller. The reinstalled sight should then fit much tighter.
