    I got the Factory Glock Adj Sight installed on my G22 and it works great for left and right. But I'm still shooting about 3 to 4 inches high at 20 to 25 yards. I still have the factory front sight which I believe is .175 from what I have found do i need to go up with the number to say .300 or down, to adj for my 3 inches.

    Align the sights so they are flat across the top, like this:

    OK, aim at the orange dot like this:

    In a perfect world, your bullets will impact the targeted orange dot like this:

    If you were aiming with the front sight a little proud (sticking up above the top edge of the rear sight), that could easily explain why your shots are going high at 20+ yards.
