    Ok, took this little beauty to the range on Sat.

    Darnit !!!

    I started with .38s, and it shoot everything 4 inches right of POA. I am allowing for vertical differences right now till I get used to the sights, but 4 inches right is way wrong in my opinion. Same with .357 loads.

    I had two others shoot the gun with instructions to center the sights on target. They were also 4 inches right.

    Any ideas??

    The trigger is so nice, and it is such a nice looking gun. I dont want to dump it for a GP100, but I think I might have to.

    DON'T DUMP IT!!!!!

    The simple fix is slightly turning the barrel in the frame (a smidge to the right, in this case). This NOT uncommon for single action army or other fixed-sight revolvers. This is NOT a reason to ditch a gun you like!!!! Take it to a gunsmith who is familiar with the design and it can be corrected in about five minutes.

    Thanks for the advice ...

    I spoke to a nice young woman at AWA and she said I can ship it back to them and have them adjust for windage by turning the barrel or have a gunsmith do it.

    I will save some money and ship it to them as it has a lifetime warranty.

    I am going to keep it ... I can always find a GP100.

    I will give you all any updates on AWA service as thy come.
