    ive been out a few times with this new para big hawg 1911, and it seems to ALWAYS shoot low, i figured it might just be me, so i handed it over to another shooter at the range. he shot low. same thing with the next guy. im curious what could be causing this, i use the same ammo in my 5inch springfield defender and can hit right where i wanted.

    How many yards/feet are you shooting it ?? How far low is it shooting ?? Have you tried other weights/kinds of ammo ?? You can buy a replacement front sight and they are easy to change ---- I like the fiber optic sights on all my handguns.

    i have tried different ammo, we have tried 25yrds and 10yrds, its shooting on the lowest ring when aiming for the center, the only mod i have done to the gun was we replaced the bushing cuz the other 1 mysteriously went missing....*i think some1 grabbed it, cant even trust friends*

    Well --- you could try to file a bit off the front sight to get the bullet impact higher.
