I bought a LEO trade-in Sig P6 a few weeks ago. When my son and I took it to the range to shoot it we were very disapointed. Neither on of us could come anywhere near the bulls eye. Although I'm not the best shot in the world, I take a lot of pride in the fact that from around 20 ft or so I'm usually pretty darn good. :wink:
The gun was consistently low. I mentioned this to Brian and he told me to bring it in so he could take a look at it. It appears that someone had messed with the sites on the gun and I don't really understand all of this but they had used sites where the numbers were paired in correctly. According to Brian, this would cause someone to automatically shoot low. I actually think it's a "math" thing so I'll have to learn more about how this works.
Brian swapped out the sites while I waited on a Saturday and didn't charge me an arm or a leg.
Needless to say, The Math Teacher is again back on target.
If you have any problems with a gun you have, give Brian a chance he won't do you wrong and you can quote The Math Teacher on that.
:righton:

With the sights on your pistol, aligning them will make your sight picture and the path of the bullet intersect at a particular point at a certain distance. The closer or further away from that perfect distance, the further off the sights will be. If your front and rear sight are not made to work together, the point of intersection will be way off or even nonexistent. I wold guess the front sight was way to tall, so your weapon was tipped downward and at any distance the sights and the bullet would not cross paths. Just picture a parabolic curve for the flight path and a straight line for the sights... tip the path of the bullet down enough that the line and the path never intersect, that is what you had.

hey teach,what kind of price did that p-6 command :?:
I got it at Wild West Traders.

I'm not sure they want that price out on the internet.
It might cause a stampede. :wink:
