    First firing with Winchester 230 gr. ball ammo. 100 rds. with no failures at all.
    Factory sights at 25 yds. as they came out of the box.

    About 6 in. right and about the same low, :mad:

    Have not moved the sights yet as I am still working on trying to get used to the trigger.:wah:

    Ken, if you have Academy Sports in your area look into the Monarch ammo. I have been using it in 45 and 9 millimeter and its just as good as the Winchester best news is it's a few dollars a box cheaper. It's always nice to see another satisfied customer but then again it's a 45 so how can you not be satisfied :)

    I just received a 4595TS from Armslist yesterday. I paid $230 total shipped from Colorado. How much for yours?

    Just get rid of it because you have to zero the sights? Hate to know what youd do if you had a real issue.

    I think that's a great idea. We won't have to help you when you install your charging knob upside down.

    It's pretty rare for a new firearm to come from the factory, zeroed. Try zeroing it before you decide to get rid of it.

    Measured the target and backer today. Some hits were off the target and I just guessed on my first post.
    8 in. right and 4 in. low at 25 yds !!!!!!
    Something is out of whack.

    This was off a bench and sandbags.

    Make sure your front sight is on tight, not kidding if its loose you'll be all over the place.
    You said your having an issue with the trigger, that will cause you problems.
    When you clean it you might have some factory paint or trash in there.
    Good luck.

    That's why both sights not only go left & right, they go up & down too.

    Start with centering the front sight.

    All that experience you'd think you could center the front sight.

    Do you need to get smashed in the head with a brick before you realize it's "red"?

    With regards to elevation, I would recommend that you use the corse elevation adjustment screw that is mounted on the front sight post before you go using the fine elevation adjustment screw on the rear sight.

    I am curious, though. How many rounds are you firing, per group, before you make adjustments? How many times have you made adjustments? Based on your posts, it appears that you just fired a bunch of round but didn't make any sight adjustments.

    Answering these questions might give us some insights into what the issue is.

    Seems as if some just jump in without reading others posts.

    Be grateful they remembered to install it. You could have grabbed an allen wrench and fixed it in less time it took you to b!tch about it.
