I shot my Dan Wesson Razorback today and its fixed sights are giving me shots about 6" high at 25 yds. The gun has always been out of whack in the precision dept. The stock sights I believe are Bomar non-adjust. Can you think of a reason the gun should be this far off? Should I go with a set of adjustable sights? IF so, what would you recommend?

What sight picture? 6 o'clock or center of bullseye?
What ammo? 230 grain or lighter?
Both are factors to be considered.

The front sight is too low. Another rear sight won't help much. Measure the front sight and then get one about .0015 higher and dove tail it in. It should be at about .0200 high. It may be a bad rear sight cut, too.

Maybe use the classic bullseye target hold or as I was taught the "6 oclock" hold?
My RZ (#16) hits point of aim at 25 yards.
Maybe call Bob Serva at DW on monday and talk about it.

Not the 6:00 hold. I use the standard hold (dot centered between front rear) that I have used on all my handguns for the past several years.
Peter, good suggestion. I'll call Bob Serva on Monday.

Has anyone else tried shooting this piece? What were you shooting before this gun? What kind of ammo are you using?:scrutiny:
I ask because I have a shooting buddy that went from a pos Sigma to a 1911 and had a similar problem. Realized that he had been compensating w/ his Sigma for so long that he was compensating w/ the 1911 too. Once he had someone else :D shoot the gun we realized it was more him than the weapon.

:confused: Six inch difference POI/POA needs a lot more than 15 thou correction--closer to 45 thou needed to correct according to my formula.

It is definitely the gun. I benchrested it to be sure. I think I will probably go with some adjustable sights.
