No Sir, but the back one is slightly off, shoots 1.50"-2" towards left.

mhrehman brother, please go to the range and fire five shots. See the mpi. If it is on the left, as you say, move the rear sight slightly to the right (against the error, using a sight pusher). Fire five shots and see the group. If still needs adjustment, repeat the procedure as per the error. Fire another five shots and see the mpi. Hopefully it should be ok by then. Best of luck. :)

You need a dovetail sight pusher for that purpose or you can try hammer (smaller, lighter & non marring) and one punch (non marring again), more over a good bench rest, ample time at shooting range & lot of ammo :)

Well Apolo bhai its simple, some time ago I asked a friend to bring me a proper sight pusher, and he did from Germany. About ajusting the sights, if your bullets are consistently hitting the left side, move your rear sight to the right, and vice versa. If you want to adjust the front sight, in case your bullets are hitting left, you move your front sight to the left.

Sir your sight will not move in dovetail as it is held on tightly by a screw. You need a 'L' key to unwind this screw and the using a light hammer and a padding of rubber or folded cloth over you sight will help to move it inside the dovetail.
You will require to shoot and see steps before every minor change you make in the sight placement. I would recommend you to shoot it alot before you adjust your sights.
"809 has a very ligt felt muzzle", be careful before you adjust sights give it a try again and may be again after that to see how it works for you.
