    Colt New Agent, Point of Aim

    I have just acquired a Colt New Agent. I have run about 300 rounds thru it. The gun runs perfectly. A dream to carry. Conceals very well. The problem is that it shoots low. I played with different sight pictures, and never found anything that worked, I finailly found a pistol rest and the gun shot a 1" ragged hole at 7 yards, 3 inches low. I let the range master shoot it from the rest with the same bulls eye hold that i was using with the same results. Five shot group the size of a quarter 3 inches low.
    Some one told me today to send it back to Colt and they would "re-crown" it and that would fix the problem. Thoughts on this? I have several other 1911's and all have traditional sights, I bought this gun for concealablilty, and daily carry, i know that it will never be a target gun. I spent about 50 rounds this morning at a 7 yard target, just drawing and pointing the gun at center mass and fireing twice to three times as fast as i could, they all were center mass hits with a spread of about 9 inches, If i aim and compenstate for the difference I can put them in a 1 1/2 hole.
    I know that is more of a mind game for me now. knowing in the back of my mind that it is shooting low and supconsiously compensating for it.. do I get it fixed (if Possible) or just run it like it is?

    This is the Colt new agent without sights...right? And when you say bullseye hold, I'm assuming you mean a 6 o'clock hold?

    OK, think about it like this, sights are matched that when they are properly aligned you are raising/lowering the muzzle to be centered & level with the rear notch and get a certain POA at X distance. What you have is a gun with no sights to make that process possible. By using the 6 o'clock hold, you are placing the bore line below your desired point of impact. Ditch the 6 o'clock hold and put align that trench over where yo want the shot to go so that the bore is in line with your desired point of impact.

    Sightless handguns are the perfect carry weapon for developing and perfecting quick draw-point shooting skills.
