    I have owned four Glocks (22,17,23,27) and with all of them I shoot left (4 inches). I am not saying its the guns; I believe its something to do with my natural point of aim. If my sights are drifted to the right I am on target; but the edge of the sight is somewhat off the slide. This looks very akward. I have tried everything I can think of: too much/little finger in the trigger, milking the grip, etc. I am a good shot, but am having trouble with the Glock.

    I also am thinking about a grip reduction to change the grip angle, any suggestions.

    you're pulling the round with the left hand or pushing it with the right. Thats my 2 cents.

    Yep, I have to agree. A lot of dry firing and some range time will probably fix the issue.

    it sounds like you are shooting with the wrong eye.

    are you left eye dominant or right eye dominant?

    if youre shooting with the wrong eye, it will put you off a few inches to the side.

    As long as you keep a good site picture on target you should be able to switch eyes without the pistols point of aim vs. point of impact changing.

    I have good groups; but I have to drift my sights to the right. It looks somewhat akward.

    Try using the center of the finger pad. Not the tip, not the crease, but in between. If you are using the tip of your finger you are pushing the trigger to the left when you are pulling.

    Next time your at the range get the range master to shoot a mag and see how he does with your pistol. Then you will know if it is you or the weapon. Tells you many things.

    Mind if I bring this thread alive? I own a Gen 3 G17. I have put about 500 rds through this Glock. Like the OP my G17 shoots left but I believe it is the gun. I had a friend who let me shoot his G17 and I was plugging bullseyes. He shot my G17 and he shot left as well. When I bench rested it shot left. The rear sight is centered on the slide. Also, I am not new to Glocks.



    My question is...Is there anything else that can cause the gun to shoot left if it is not the sights or the shooter?



    Thanks

    How does the wear on the slide lock look?

    i went out to the range yesterday with a "very well used" 3rd gen g17 and same thing was happening. only an inch or two.

    Im VERY curious as to how the slide lock effects this... can you elaborate?

    The slide lock affects how the barrel is lined up in the slide while it is firing. Im referring to the part you take down to field strip a glock, NOT the slide release...
