    Hello all,
    Does anyone know at what range the Glock handguns are zeroed at the factory? (The search function is not working for me, something about the token has expired. I don't know what that means). It is 25yds/meters or 50yds/meters? I have tried searching the net with no luck, read the manuals for glock and browning and no mention at what range the pistols are zeroed at. Thanks for your time in advance.

    They don't zero them.

    They are designed ti hit point of aim at 25 yards.....usually they do, sometimes they need a small tweek. If yours is shooting low and left, it's probably a trigger control problem.

    They don't. They center the rear sight and ship it.

    My G36 was hitting about eight inches high at 25 yards. Had to file down the rear aperture to bring it down to point on at 25.

    I'm about to purchase a new G26 and am wondering if I should go with the night sigts. If I got the night sights, I wouldn't be able to fine tune with a file like I did with the stock plastic one. Anyone purchase a G26 with the factory night sights lately who can tell me where it hits at 25 yards?

    The guns are set for 25 yards, we all shoot slightly different. Buy with the standard sights and shoot it before buying night sights. That way you can buy the correct NS for you.

    No NS but on my first trip to the range with my right-out-of-the-box G26 I was hitting the 50 yd 12" gong about 50% with the stock fixed sights. That's pretty good for me and tells me the gun is right on.

    the whole 'fixed sight' alignment is a great mystery to me.
    I never shot my Glock with factory sights. I went straight to the armor and had him put on night sights. He did his magic and they are perfect. He knew how to align them. They look good (meaning centered) and shoot right on.

    My ammo will move around my group. What kind of ammo are your shooting?

    why are you concerned with having defense guns hit POA at 25 yds? :dunno:

    How does it shoot at 7 yds?

    It amazes me that people can even hit the target at 25 yards. I have a difficult enough time getting groups at 7 yards. I would be thrilled to hit the target at 25 yards. You guys are good!

    Ya don't really even need sights at 7 yards.....and sometimes bad guys might be farther away.

    Hi Butch!
    I posted about shooting low and you directed me to your blog which I have been reading. I live in Illinois. I haven't had a chance to try out some of the things in your blog. I've had a couple of lessons from different teachers, while they have been excellent shooters themselves, I really haven't improved. My skills are the greatest and neither is my eyesight and I don't wear glasses. I believe that if I ever had to use my gun, chances are I wouldn't have my glasses on anyway - therefore I practice without them. As for my shooting low, I think I'm putting too much or holding the gun too tight with my pinky and ring finger. I think if I use pressure from my middle and ring fire I might do better.

    Sorry for the threadjack.

    Thanks,
    p

    First, I would have you shoot with your glasses on for the most part, makes it easier to improve. I suppose it does make sense to shoot some without them also.....but you should have *some* glasses on when you shoot anyway, it's called eye protection.

    Can you dry fire the gun without moving it off target?

    "I would be thrilled to hit the target at 25 yards." Heck I'd be thrilled to SEE the target at 25 yards and/or be able to walk from the firing line to the 25 yard target without needing to stop at the bathroom along the way...

    Ha...I meant corrective glasses - yes I shoot with eye (and ear) protection. I don't know if I can dry fire without moving off target, based on the way I shoot, I doubt if I can.

    if you shoot a BG at more than 7 yds you are going to have a lot of explaining to do...
