Sight Adjustment on Kel-Tec Sub-2000

I found that my Kel-Tec Sub-2000 required some pretty drastic modification of the front sight position to get it to shoot straight at the 25 yard distance I sighted it in at.

It uses the purple see-through front sight that is tightened up/down/any direction via allen head screws on either side. I bought it used and I have mostly been using steel-case wolf 9x19mm ammunition to sight it in.

For 25 yard sighting, I found the gun shooting way high and to the left. I had to crank the front sight post _most_ of the way to the right and significantly down to get it to shoot straight and now I seem to be quite consistent.

Is this normal? Anyone else have to make such a modification. I seem to be quite close to the end of the adjustment range laterally (about 80% from fully pushing the front post all the way as far right as possible.) Same goes for having to drop the front post to the point where the top of the post is about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom of the front circle that surrounds the post. The tip of the post is well into the lower-right-hand quadrant of the circular front-sight-guard and does not show nearly as prominently when acquring a sight picture.

Anyone else adjust it this far for accuracy or do I have some serious flinching/errors going on in my shooting?

Mine also had to be adjusted quite a bit.

As far as flinching, if you're a lefty and getting burning powder and particles in your face, maybe you are. :eek:

I have the .40 cal version of the sub2k. I find it to be super accurate for a little 30" 4lb folding rifle. At 50 yards I can hit a 6" metal plate with a whole mag. At 100 yards everything in the COM on a silhouette.

Well, I'd say that these two statements pretty much say it all. 1- you're using the cheapest ammo made, I would expect it to be inconsistent. 2- you bought it used, who knows how the last owner had it sighted in, he could have been right handed shooting with his left eye or vice versa or who knows what. Of course flinching and the heavy trigger pull could have a lot to do with it, also, your familiarity with using peep sights could be a factor. Are you shooting off hand or from a rest?

The guns are sighted in for 100yds from the factory, I've never had to touch the sights on mine and it is surprisingly accurate, as a matter of fact I recently qualified with mine on our patrol rifle course. I practice mostly with MAGTECH 115gr FMJ, some WWB 115gr FMJ.
