Is my K6S barrel off center?

Hi all, picked up a K6S 3 inch with night sights and I noticed the front sight seems to cant to the left looking down the barrel from the breech end. Does anyone else's K6S look like this? Is my barrel out of alignment? Thanks in advance for any comments!

Welcome from Tennessee. I don't own a K6S to compare but YES, judging from your pic it looks "OFF."

It is a little hard to tell if the barrel is clocked wrong, or if the sight itself is crooked.

Damn, Kimber must have hired a Smith & Wesson revolver tech. See that all the time on New Smiths. My Wifes Ladysmith 357 came that way and had to send it back. Damn barrel was 2 degree off center.
Look at the end or the barrel to body fit as in these photos, that will tell you better if it's the sight or barrel.

Its all good now, Smith took care of it. I looked at a used 686 plus Performance Center Snubby at the LGS that was possibly 10 degrees off. Can't figure out what's going on at Smith to let stuff go like that with as many as I've seen. My new 627 Performance Center was Perfect (Got Lucky)

Looks problematic to me. What kind of a world do we live in when Smith revolvers are in the same discussion with KIMBER revolvers?
