Default Polish WBP CG1: Would a straight AK need windage adjustments?

Hello all I took my Polish WBP CG1 out to the range today and everything was shooting left (good on elevation), so I proceeded to just sight in my red dot and go from there. Once I got home, I ended up drifting the front sight to the left to be in line with my red dot that was sighted in at 25. I can see the drift block on the front sight sticks out towards the left quite a bit now (relative to what would be even in the middle). My question to yall is does this possibly imply that my rifle might be slightly canted?

Every rifle will be different, I have a Arsenal that the rear sight leaf is visibly pointed to the left, but it zeroed and the post is centered.


You just never know.

Many AK'S have non concentric bores or even straight bores so it's very easy for a rifle with straight parts to shoot left right high or low.

They’re back in stock on Atlantic for $1k. Was this what they originally were?

Yes. Get them while you can, they'll be gone fast.
