So, have you reached the 15K count? :wink:
I know I'm reviving an old thread, but I've recently acquired one and I can't get decent accuracy out of if. I'm pretty sure it's because of my technique, not the guns fault, but I find it to be difficult to shoot it right. I have no problem hitting a 1 inch target most of the time with my 1377 at 10m, but not with this one.
Any tips?

Don't know what's going on?
Did You Buy it New?
Both of mine are deadly shots.
Right up there with my Alecto and FAS!

I bought used from the forum, but it is in great shape and I'm pretty sure there is no problem with the gun. The trigger is very heavy however, maybe it isn't fully broken in yet?
The problem I assume is with my technique. Is there a proper way to hold such pistol? Firm grip, light grip?

Not 15,000 yet, but 4,000 rounds. No problems encountered. I am happy with the accuracy of this pistol which I shoot it free standing, single handed at 10 yards with all hits in the black of a standard ISSF target (aside from an occasional flier caused by me).

As for the heavy trigger, I wonder if you experience the same problem I used to battle before I got the Cometa: thinking I was pulling straight back on the trigger it turned out I was actually pushing mostly sideways on it. This made for an unnecessarily heavy trigger pull, which caused me to jerk the trigger just to get rid of the shot and this in turn gave me the dreaded chicken finger syndrome. It took dedicated effort to overcome all this, but the good news is that it can be done.

4K rounds, thats not bad!
Thanks for the tip! I thought I was careful about pulling the trigger straight, but it seems that there was room for improvement (and there likely still is). Accuracy is getting better :)
