Take out the cylendar put frame in a vise with pieces of board to keep from scratching it.

Scribe a small mark on frame and barrel on the bottom where they join.

Put a padded small pipe wrench on barrel near the frame. Leather is best for padding. Turn very slightly counter clock wise.

Put it back together and test fire.

Counter clock wise, depending on which end you're looking from! It shoots left so the front sight has to move to the left to correct it. So if you're looking from rear towards front counter clock wise is correct.

I have a cheap nifty Heritage 3 1/2 inch birdshead and it actually wants to be a good shooter. But it shot to the right. Now the Heritage's have a long and slow hammer travel to the back of the transfer bar. I finally discovered that the hammer was rubbing on the frame causing the same barrel bobble on every shot no matter how I followed thru. Took it apart and relieved and polished the frame hammer channel. Still not a Smith but is easier to shoot well now.
