My new G23 shoots to the left.

I have about 300 rounds through my new Gen3 Glock 23. Absoulutely no malfunctions of any kind but it shoots to the left. It shoots about 2 to 3 inches left at 12 yards. The rear sight is perfectly centered and there is no room to move it in the dovetail. I do have access to a Glock rear sight tool but I don't think there is enough room for any adjustment. What should I do?

Thankyou very much for any suggetions.

I bet you are also shooting low? If so, the problem has more to do with your trigger finger than the sights. You can prove this by unloading the gun and dry firing. Be sure to watch your sight carefully. When you pull the trigger I bet your sight moves off the target in the low left direction. If this is true, all you need to do is adjust your trigger finger. You should be using only the part of the finger directly behind the fingernail.

Thankyou very much for your prompt reply. No, elevation is good, all rounds hitting between 8 and 10 o'clock but as I said to the left. I will try your suggestion Sun. when I get up to the range.

Thanks again.

No need to go to the range. Dry fire practice will only make you better!
Remove all ammo from the area. Pick a target that is safe meaning if a round accidentally gets introduced durring dry fire practice it will be safely absorbed. Cycle the gun. Focus on the sights while you adress the trigger. Watch the sights intently until the trigger sear clicks off. If the sights move off target, you know you need more practice. Keep practicing until you get it right (solid click, no sight movement). If you dont have it right after 50 tries, go at it again tomorrow.
How about a range report after putting this suggestion to the test?

JR, did what you said, praticed dry firing at a target on the wall. It seemed to me that I was doing very well with no drop at trigger break. Yet at the range the pistol was still shooting to the left. Elevation was still good. Looks like I will be looking for some adjustable sight at the Tulsa gun show next month.

Thanks for your help.

I seen Jack Tippit and Tom Graham at the spring show. I suspect they will be at the Fall show too. (both are great Glock guru's) You can call them to verify or just go and see what happens.
LWD will be there in the Spring show. We have a brand ne 40' display trailer that is auto launching. Pretty awesome indeed!
