    Has anybody had this out the box?

    I shot 100 rounds through it with no problems, but it was shooting 2" low on target.I didn't have tools with me, but will go back to adjust. Anyone else's has been that far off?

    Most any gun can be off windage or elevation from the factory. Easy enough if you can adjust 'em, just have to go with Kentucky windage if you can't. I prefer adjustables even on my self defense guns for this reason. When I got my new TH9c, it was off windage, so I just reached in my tool box and got the right allen wrench and fixed that. If it'd been off in elevation, I'd had to look for a taller or shorter front sight or if shooting low, just file some off that sight. Been there, done that, too.

    I have a fixed sighted Heritage that I just have to do the Kentucky windage with. Old timers speak of tweaking the barrel in a vice, but I don't think I'll tough that with this gun. I wouldn't mess with it in any gun, tell ya the truth, but this gun has a zamak frame into which the barrel screws and it's soft material.

    The G2C should be easy enough, like my TH9c.

    My G2c shot quite low out of the box also. Scroll down a few threads to "picked up my G2C this afternoon" and you can read what I have done to mine to make it a great shooter!

    Mine shoots way low.

    The rear sight is adjustable. But, it's "funky". Read the Manual. It also looks, from the way it's constructed, like it might not stay adjusted high. What raises the rear sight is an eccentric part on the shaft of the screw that adjusts it.

    Assuming this gun passes probation (330 rounds so far!), replacing the sight is something I will need to look into.

    mine shot center on elevation but about 2-3 inches right at 10 yards. then I checked my sight, it was all the way to one side. i adjusted to center it in the sight base and now i get center hits most time with a flyer from time to time.

    Mine would not stay adjusted high and ran out of adjustment before I achived a 6 o'clock hold. My solution was to wedge a piece of 0.06" lexan between the adjuster cam and the sight. Ran quite a few mags through it today and the fix stayed put.

    If i put the sight on the target it's low so I just cover the target and it's pretty much dead on.
