    Quick range trip

    Wanted to shoot the diamondback some more and took a few others. Low on targets i had to
    make it work.
    15 yds...The Diamond back is a low shooter fore sure...Even moving it in to 10yds
    didn't make much of a difference...Gonna have to change the sight height unless anyone has other ideas?
    They are Glock compatible.

    Got some more rounds through the diamondback yesterday...All is good reliability wise but that front sight
    height needs to change.

    Sounds like you are on top of the problem. Do they have ranges in Nebraska or do you hang those targets on corn stalks?

    I wouldn't change the sights based on those targets, good shooting Tex.

    I would like to bring the groups up a touch on the diamondback...Lower front sight height?
    I now its a gun very limited to short range but it still bothers me.

    You could file the front sight down a little [ very little ] which would raise the groups. A jewelers fine file, a little touch up blueing or black after.

    I have all the tools for that kind of stuff...May try it...If i screw up it has glock sights on it anyway.
    I will grab the calipers and measure the sight height and see where i am at vs maybe something glock offers in a
    shorter sight

    In your case? You've got nowhere to aim but up . . . in both.

    No they are metal front and rear..That was one of the new upgrades on it along with a slide stop
    and grip texture...For a lower priced gun i like the improvements over the last version i had.
