S&W6906 Shoots Low?

    You may want to try a heavier bullet which will shoot higher or get a lower front sight. Personally, I would not worry about it.

    My 6906 shoots like yours and like"Sixgunner455 said it s a combat gun and set up that way. I really like it and of all the 3rd gen guns I have , the 6906 is one of my favorites .

    Unless you bought the gun that's shooting high or low NEW, you don't know what prior owners have done to the sights.

    Over the years, I've had more than one 3rd Gen. S&W shoot way off POA, including a 4506 that was hitting very low with what seemed to be factory sights.

    I couldn't find a higher rear but did pick up a lower front sight from S&W. (The replacement sight was a lot lower -- the lowest one they made for that series of .45s...) The gun then shot to point of aim at around 30' - 50', which was all I wanted.
