Did you have to adjust them to POA?
Mine have all been dead on to 25yds, or at least as close as I can shoot. I have shot farther but those guns had aftermarket sights on them.
I don't use em.
I point shoot.
Mine is as far as I can tell. I'm a relatively new hand gun shooter so I'm still fine tuning things, but, as far as I can tell I'm 100% of whatever inaccuracies pop-up.
Most have been. Some haven't been. (Across several brand/model lines.)
YES. But i to am a point shooter,works for me.
My first Glock in 1996 shot low left, but the sights were self adjusting after a few weeks of shooting. All Glocks since then have been dead on for me.
All of my glocks and 1911's have been spot on. The only one I had to adjust out of the box was my sig p220, but I didn't have to adjust it much
Factory sights on my G34 were way off.
Maybe thats why you needed the RDS and Comp. Just kidding!
is it that the sights are not perfectly centered and aligned along the slide?
17, 19, 26, 33, & 22. I have not shot the 26.
The sights on the other 4 were off. ("off" means the rounds did not hit dead center of the bull's eye at 25 yards when shot from a rest).
I replaced the factory sights with adj sights. This also allows re-adjustment when changing bullet weights.
My sights on both of my Glocks are more accurate than I am. If the sights are centered on the slide they're dead on.
If your sights are centered on the slide and you're not hitting where you're aiming, it's likely that your shooting technique needs to be tweaked. Could be that you're moving the gun as you pull the trigger, or even that the gun moves in your hands right after the trigger breaks.
Personally at 17ft most of my shots hit the center, but maybe 10% of them end up left, low, or low and to the left by a couple inches(shooting right handed with a two hand thumbs forward grip).
yeah, If the sights are centered then they are centered... if the bullets don't go where you aim them, something is wrong with your technique. Be it looking down the sights properly, anticipating the shot, milking the grip, etc... I know everyone hates to hear that it's them and not the gun or bullets...LOL...
Same thing happened to me, although it took more than a few weeks. My sights must be a little slower.
All of my Glocks always shot spot on.
I wish I could say the same for my friends new Beretta 92a1. It shoots about 3" low and 3" to the right.
My two new glocks came with the stock rear sight favoring the right side. Changed both with mepros dead centered and are now tested accurate shooting from a rest from 20' out to 75'.
I've never had to adjust any of mine.
If you are shooting at 17 feet, you don't even need sights, as mentioned by a previous poster. Point shoot!
found this...according to the guy, the mfg. don't really zero the sights I guess. I "drive the dots" and find my Glock and SIG very accurate that way...I'm not off either left or right on mine.
