Charlie,

Find a gunsmith that knows how to work on single-actions.  To fix the left-right, it is likely that you need to turn the barrel just a smidge.  Take him some targets so he can try to figure out how much to turn the barrel, and of course, what direction.

For the low... this is not so bad.  Find your most accurate load first, regardless of impact.  Then, if it's still shooting low, take it back to your gunsmith or v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y file down the front sight yourself to bring up the point of impact.  Check the point of impact after every file stroke!  It often takes very little, and it is hard to add metal back.

Obviously you can see the importance of deciding on the correct load BEFORE starting these modifications!  I'd check the other cylinder too, with a little luck you may find a good load for each that has the same point of impact.
