Adjusting SR9c Sights

Just wondering how many people had to adjust their stock sights on the SR9c? Mine out of the box shot slightly low and left and I thought it was me pulling the gun when the trigger was pulled. I left several other people shoot it with the same results, so im assuming the sights need to be adjusted. The elevation was easy to correct and after close inspection I noticed my front sight was not exactly centered. It needed to be moved just a hair to the left with this adjustment I also drifted the rear ever so slightly to the right, hopefully this will bring it back to point of aim. Taking it to the range tomorrow morning for a trial run. Anyone else had to adjust theirs?

My SR40c, rear sight obviously off center to left. Front sight appears off to be off very slightly to right. Hitting way left and low. Adjusted rear elevation and hits are up. Haven't tried to adjust rear yet, but that is on my to do list before next range trip.

When I say way left, I have to aim 4 - 6 inches right just to get close to center at 15 - 20 yards.

Has anyone who has purchased an SR9C NOT had the front site drifted to the right when new in box? Mine appears to be to the right for sure.

My sr9c shot low to the left out of the box. Took it to the gunsmith to get the rear sight drifted and he thought it seemed fairly centered he felt if anything it was a bit left already so he adjusted the front. Haven't been back to the range yet, hopefully this weekend.

Got my SR9c last Saturday. Took it to the range on Tuesday and began to sight it in at 25 yards. It was hitting pretty high. Had to lower it about 6 clicks. I got it close enough where I can Support my hands on a table and hold a 1 1/2" group at 25 yards (slow shoot). Not bad.

My SR9c front sight is off center; can it be centered? How best to do it? I've attempted to compensate with rear sight adjustments, but I'd rather have the front site centered first, then make any further adjustments with the rear one. Help!

I got my sr9 yesterday and went to range today my front sight looks to be off center to right. I was shooting lft of center but good elevation. Im also wondering if im pulling when I shoot, in same boat.

I had been shooting low left and adjusted elevation but kept shooting left. I thought it might be me. But after reading this thread I have looked, and my front sight is off-center to the right as well. I will try and tap it to center, but not sure they haven't used loctight to hold it in place.

Why does that sound harder than it should be to me?

My understanding is that the SR9 and "c" both come with adjustable front and rear sites. I thought the front site was meant to be tapped left or right to meet the needs of the shooter and environmental factors.

It's like a knife - some come pretty sharp from the factory and some are as dull as a steel pipe. But, none of them are perfect out of the box (or, not mine, anyway).

I have just been a little nervous about moving that front sight. I can imagine it just popping right off.

When I first fired mine,I thought it was slightly high and to the right. I adjusted for elevation and then after about 800 rounds I wound up moving them back to where they were. With repeated dry firing and shooting, I no longer find it shooting slightly right. In my case, it seems I just needed to get used to the trigger. My SR40c is slightly high/left but will wait for more trigger time before attempting any adjustments.

What do you have to do to adjust windage on the rear sight. Any screws to loosen?
