ahh,Bud to the rescue again. I should just e mail ya with my technical questions I guess. Thanks. my SA champion shoots dead on height wise, but holds abit left consistantly. Seemed to work well, but didn't quite feed once off a fresh mag. ( temps were 16 degrees witha 20 mph wind too) Might be just break in , cheap mag or cold weather , will run more ammo thru to see.

Bud is correct in his info.(not that I ever doubted him)
Losten the screw, and tap the sight.. probably with a brass hammer so you won't mar the sight.

must be on there tight. Am wondering how much wering heavy gloves affected point of aim too. May just wait till it warms up a bit and shoot it again before I change too much. Its my summer carry gun anyway , so no real rush to press it in service.

Rocky, Are you left handed?
When I first got my Colt XSE I let my Father shoot it, and it shot little to the left for him, and spot on for me, then I let my brother in law shoot it, same thing he shot to the left, and I shot right on, They are both left handed.

yes, I am left handed. It may just be me not used to the short trigger pull yet too. Been shooting a HK USP that has more trigger take up by far, even in SA mode. Also wearing heavy gloves might change my grip a bit too.

With "night sights" you might want to used a sight adjustment tool, I' seen the lens pop off sights by pounding them.
