Default Front sight adjusting

I have a Springfield auto 22 model 87A. It shoots to the right. I have tried moving the front sight with no success...tapping it with a pocket knife. There's no screw or allen or anything to loosen. How do I move the front sight. I know a scope would solve the problem..Its not drilled and tapped or grooved?

Use a plastic, or brass punch, and a small hammer.
Then gently tap it to the left a little at a time
Move the rear sight the same direction you want the bullet to move.
Good Luck.
