New Gen4 G22 shoots high.

I recently purchased a new G22 for work. At ranges beyond 21ft., it shoots slightly high. I counter this by holding my sight picture just under the bullseye and it hits home. Now, this is not a big deal for work if I'm engaging a man size target, but a bit annoying for target shooting at the range. Considering all my other handguns hit point of aim at that distance.


Have any of your Glocks shot high? And more importantly, any solutions to this??

BTW, It is with new Trijicon night sights.

Thanks for any replys.

If it's the gun, Glock makes several different rear sight heights to correct it. With the plastic sights, you should be able to change them with no tools - I have pushed them in and out with my fingers before.

I was just doing a bit of research on this topic and one instructor had stated it may be the steep grip angle, and with time, one will hit point of aim. I am hoping it is me and not the gun. I can fix me easier.

I switched over from an M&P40 and the grip angle is very different. I hope I'm just holding the Glock like the Smith by muscle memory.

Let someone else shoot it and see what happens. Preferably one who is accurate with his glock.

If you can find a ransom rest, much better. I usually blame myself before the gun when I'm having problems hitting.

I prefer the 6 O clock hold aiming at the bottom of the bullseye at 25 yards and hitting the bullseye. In a self defense rapid fire situation you will probably pull the shots slightly lower than when target shooting. Try shooting as fast as possible at the same distance and see where the rounds impact.

I'll try that, but my gripe is that I have to hold 6 at 21 feet, not 25 yards.

Good bet it's you. Have someone familiar with Glocks shoot it or use a rest.

Are you using one of the back straps? or shooting it without?
