    OSS shooting low

    I just purchased a 9mm and a 45 OSS tactical in the last month. I like them but they both seem to shoot low for me. I would hate to have to file down the front sight on them. Does anyone make an adjustable rear sight for these? I can mill the dovetail if need be.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    My suggestion is to give them a little more range time before doing anything to the sights, especially the filing of the front sight down.

    The OSS pistol is a platform all it's own, and mine took some getting used to. After a matter of a couple of months of familiarization / range time with it, I could all but shoot the bull's eye out of the target.

    Are covering the bullseye with the front dot, or using 6 o'clock hold where bull sits on top of front sight? With the OSS, you have to cover the bull. I shot my OSS 9 yesterday and it shoots right on. If you like the 6 o'clock hold, you should be able to find a shorter sight without having to file it. Some where around here, there is a formula to use to figure how much shorter front post you need to raise your impact point. Hope this helps.

    I was using a 6 o'clock hold. I will try holding on center of the front dot.

    Thank you,

    Yep, more range time and more targets.

    If you do decide to change sights look into the Williams Fire Sights. I put them on mine and it helped me alot, but that was after I put about 1000 rounds through it.

    What you propose doing is called the "Dead On" hold and that's what has always worked for me, so that is what I use with all of my handguns, including both of my 24/7's.

    True! Had the left hand version at one time, but lost it due to a Hard Drive Crash. Will have to see if I can dig one up somewhere.
