    TH9C Sights

    I posted here:
    https://www.taurusarmed.net/forums/p...ml#post5589945
    ...about how the sights on my TH9C don't quite line up correctly. Since then, there have been a few other posts in recent threads where people have said that their TH9/TH9C is very accurate. So now I'm wondering if my sights are somehow unique.

    I tried to take pictures of the sight alignment I'm talking about. I took an old-school 1"-square yardstick and layed it up against the sights of my TH9C. I then aimed my camera to sight right along the yardstick edge so both sights are as lined up as possible. So in this picture, you're looking at the end of the yardstick:

    Here's the same view, but I just tipped the yardstick out of the way:

    Notice how the 3-dots do not align even though the top of the sights line up. There's clearly more space between the top of the dot and the edge of the sight on the front sight than the rear sight.

    Here's a picture with the camera moved over slightly to get the 3 dots to line up. Now notice that the top of the sights do not align anymore.

    So I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this? It's somewhat of an issue because for me, the proper sight alignment is with the tops of the sights lined up; NOT with the 3-dots aligned.

    Thanks!

    ...Mike

    So line 'em up conventionally, so long as it hits on that way. I have a Ruger KP90DC, old gun, no longer in production since metal guns ain't cool anymore. The sights, however, shoot low. Rather than file the front, which would take off too much sight, I just cover the target with the white dot. I have other sight pictures for other guns, each being different. The TH9c, though, at least mine, aligns conventionally and is spot on. I simply adapt to the weapon.

    BTW, to avoid confusion, you could paint over the dot on the front sight.

    I agree that you always have to adapt to the weapon. For me, it's just remembering how this pistol shoots. With the 3 dots aligned, it's far enough off to completely miss a paper plate stapled at 15 yards. The TH9 is an amazing value and I'm not trying to bash it in any way; I was mostly wondering if others have noticed the same thing or if mine was somehow unique. It sounds like yours is the same.

    BTW, metal guns are always cool! This is only my 2nd plastic piece among a reasonable collection of other all metal variants. My other plastic pistol is the Springfield XDE, which operationally is almost identical, although a bit thinner grip with its single-stack magazine.

    Bench rest it , you're find out where it shoots

    I've been shooting 4 Sig's lately and I'm for sure if I go to shoot my Th9c or TH40c I won't hit jack **** until I calm down and remember --- a different gun

    OR blacken out the rear sight??
    I mean I assume this is a military type sight system , capable of hitting a human being, not punching lil 2 inch groups at 25 yards?
    and so --adapt
    or try some fully adjustable sights.

    Just for fun I pulled out the dial calipers and measured 5.160" between the face of the sights with the front one being 0.028" too tall. A little trigonometry says that the difference between the 3 dots being lined up vs. the top of the sights being lined up is 0.3109 degrees; or 18.65 MOA for you rifle guys out there. Comes out to almost 2" at 10 yards or almost 3" at 15 yards. That's not as far off as I thought. Means I'm just not that good at hitting paper plates at 15 yards!

    Oddly, I was looking at the XDe when I got the TH9c. I wanted it in .45 and may still get one. I particularly like the DA/SA hammer system.

    I am also a fan of hammer fired DA/SA pistols; especially with a hammer-drop mechanism and ideally all metal. This includes Beretta 92 or 96 series, Bersa Thunder or Thunder Plus, Stoeger Cougar, Walther PPK, Taurus 9X or 9XX series, Arex Rex Zero 1, or IWI Baby Eagle. That names most that I know of.
    Some CZs have a hammer-drop, but no safety; while others have a safety, but no hammer-drop.
    The Springfield XDE, Taurus 800 series, and Taurus TH series are the only plastic framed pistols I'm aware of with these same features.

    Add to the list of plastic guns the Walther P99 and the Canick V2. They are striker pistols but have true DA/SA.
