Thread: Issue Shooting Left

  1. #21
    If you're shooting left at speed, but center during slow fire, it's your grip.

    Your support hand should have full contact with the frame. Frame drag is a thing, and if you don't have a good grip, you will knuckle the gun.

    CHECK THIS OUT !
    I bought a new Glock Gen5 and when I ran the first 150 rounds through it I shot it to the right.
    I found that odd and thought it might be caused by the absence of the finger grooves.
    When I got home I examined it very closely and not only did I find the front sight was ever so slightly twisted to the right I found the rear sight also drifted to the right. I called Glock and they told me to get a pair of pliers and twist the front sight straight and that they are shipping out the new guns with the rear sight to the right to compensate for most people that are shooting it to the left. I can't believe he said that, Crazy !
    Gun going back to Glock tomorrow.
    I don't understand what you are sending it back to Glock for. What type of sights are on the gun?

    I have a friend with a Glock sight pusher and I have a front sight tool.
    If I break the front screw I have to order a new one.
    Why should I play with it ?
    Let them fix it and test fire it.
    Gun is 10 days old with 150 rounds through it.
    If they break something they'll fix it free.

    Because theyíre just iron sights on a gun. Pretty much no one zeros pistol sights from the factory because they have no idea what ammo youíre going to be shooting. Youíd also have to REALLY wrench on that front sight HARD the WRONG way to snap that screw in half. Itís not that difficult and you wonít have to wait for shipping or Glock to actually make the adjustments.

    If youíre that leery about it just about any local gun shop should be able to tweak those pretty quick for you.

    You adjust the sights for you and your ammo. Thats how this all works.

    PS you should keep a spare front sight screw in your range bag anyway.

    "PS you should keep a spare front sight screw in your range bag anyway." - Good Idea!

    I was Told by Dan at Glock technical support that they would
    test fire my gun on a bench rest at 25 yard with 124 grain ammo.
    That would get it zerod better than I could do.

    Captians1911 -- I also am shooting one of my pistols to the left
    I have learned that having a flat faced and long pull on a DAO I start pulling flat on the whole trigger but by the time I get to the end of it's travel I'm pulling on the left side of the trigger and pulling the muzzle just a hair but is just enough
    I just ordered a new trigger that moves my finger forward more . I hope for my fix , the distance between the trigger and the back strap
    Bottom line-- large hands and mid size gun
