SO i recently purchased a Sig M17 blow back pistol, fun pistol to shoot. I'm not sure if its my shooting form or the pistol sights, but i shoot low and right. Is there any way to tell if its my form? Or will i just have to compensate for the sights and aim accordingly.

thanks, had another person shoot it and same results. looks like i'll just have to compensate for it. since the sights are not adjustable.

The Umarex Glock 17 gen4 does shoot low and left, every body who has bought one had the same result :evil: ...

I'M still looking for airsoft Hi-capa sights to see if they can be fitted, so far what I have found cost between $50 to $70 shipped to me. I'm not in a hurry...

I shoot low and right with the M17 air pistol :D but the real one is all over the place. I need to get back and fix that!

Aside from the sight not able to be adjusted and shooting a bit off, how do you guy's rate this gun? It's currently on sale today at Cabela's, wondering if I should pull the trigger and buy it :). They have laser attachment also, might get it for it.

I've found most pistols in general need some sort of compensation. Doesn't matter if it's a firearm or a BB gun. I think that's why red dots and adjustable sights are very popular. I put a red dot on my Umarex Glock G17 Gen4.

Not my experience at all with PB's. Within 20 yards that is. Haven't even adjusted any of my target pistols sights. One of my CF's front sight did walk a bit after 1000 shots and required realignment but that's the extent of it. My BB/pellet pistol replicas on the other hand. All are bad. None are calibrated nor could they be without modification like filing metal down. That's to be somewhat expected given the price.

Best thing you can do is to fit Sig’s own mini red dot.

Red dot is kind of expensive but at the end I think it's worth it.
