    smith and wesson 5904 sights

    Took my 5904 to the range the other day and noticed it was shooting about 3 inches low and 3 inches left at 5 yards. It has fixed sights. Am I going to have to buy adjustable sights for this gun? Why would itbe so far off in the first place? Please advise and thanks in advance!!!

    You could switch out the front sight with a lower height and drift the rear sight a bit, but first I would recommend shooting it from a rest or sandbags and verifying against other shooters. Wayne Novak had imput on the third generation Smith's and I am sure still has sights available.

    It could be the sights were bumped off, regulated for another shooter, or ammo and then there is the possibility of shooter error with a new gun. Figure out which before switching out sights.

    Sounds to me, like you are anticipating the recoil.....
