I called Smith and Wesson customer service today and explained that the barrel leaned to the left, in order to send it back for a warranty repair.
The customer service rep told me "that is how they adjust them, it is supposed to be that way.

I find it odd that a revolver may come out of production with a barrel canted to the left, on purpose. I appreciate everyone's input on this, if they have a revolver with a canted barrel, is is supposed to be that way, etc.
I was rather surprised at the response that it was supposed to be this way, so I am doing more research to determine if it is the truth, or if I need to call SW and get them to make good on this product. Thank you, I'm not a gunsmith but something sounds very wrong with the answer you were given by S&W.I took it to the range this weekend to sight it in, and I noticed that the barrel is canted to the left a bit.That is, looking down the sights, the barrel leans to the left a bit, the ridge on top of the barrel and the front sight lean to the left.Overseas orders — For 1 issue, add ; For 2–8 issues, add ; For 9–20 issues, add .
