Taught a CCW class this past weekend, and one of the students had a new G17.4 and it was shooting about 4 inches to the left. He qualified, but wanted me to check his gun for him. It too, shot to the left when I fired it. Looking at the sights, the rear sight was way to the right. So much, that about 1mm of the sight was protruding out of the dovetail. I used a sight pusher and centered his sight and fired it and it was dead-on at 15 yards. He fired it and was still shooting about an inch and a half to the left. A little instruction on trigger pull and he was shooting dead on. The gun was new and had come from Glock that way. If you whole sight is moved to the right, then it needs to centered and then adjust to POA/POI. If the sight is centered and you have is adjusted all the way to the right, then you may want to reset/center the sight and start again. If you have to move it all the way back to the right, then you may want to check your grip, stance trigger pull, sight picture and alignment, etc.I have a question about adjusting sights. I’m not a very experienced shooter. I just got my 1st G34 having come from M&Ps. I shot those right out of the box without any issues.
My G34 shoots good groups at 15 yards but about 3” left of POA. I adjusted my new Dawson sights to hit POA to POI. My issue is that looking at the rear sight it’s obvious that the sight is way closer to the right hand side of the firearm. This bothers me. Should it or is this ok? Or is there an issue with the firearm?
Also I am aware that this issue could be me. I shot it off a rest and had same results. Thanks
