the combat sight picture is great in low light. you line up the three dots and your bullet goes to the center dot. Put the dot on your target. On a 6:00 sight picture you can't make out the top of your front sight post, so it is much more difficult to figure where the bullet is going.

Sighting in the new Legion

I'm an IDPA master and NRA pistol / CCW instructor and very picky on my gun being sighted in properly...my P226 SAO was shooting left bad but not low.i could visibly see the rear sight was off to the left.i simply used a brass punch and brownells gunsmithing hammer to drift it to the right till it was shooting to point of aim.as far as shooting low (assuming it's the gun and not a grip or anticipated recoil issue) you will need to install a lower front sight.i bet SIG makes one...here are my first 10 shots at 20 yards before I adjusted the rear sight.shot offhand not rested.im gonna love this gun

Also, what ammo were you using, what bullet weight and pressure rating?
Does it group the same with different ammo?
I've had several 226 slides/sights go back to them to get centered and group properly. In all cases,they did have to replace sights and with a .22 P-226, had to change the barrel too to get acceptable groupings.
I have an older Red Box Sig X5-L1 that outta the box was DEAD ON. Too bad they're all not like that.

I feel your pain.

I have had my Legion P229 for about three months. I have about 2400 rounds through it, mostly me, but my boys have shot it too. It shoots slightly low about an inch and left about 3 inches at the first line at the range i go to. I would say its about 20 feet. Next line is twice that and the placement doubles the above. I stupidly thought it was me, its a Legion right? It must be me... So i have been working on grip and arm strength, dry firing, worked on grip placement. I have thousands of rounds through my P220, but it has von Stavenhagen sites, it's a .45, and I haven't shot a lot in several years. I was "shoot you in the right eye socket at 10 yards" 4 years ago. So i figure its me. I am rusty. But even with a rest its shooting the same.

I decide to take it to the local gunsmith, he says the sights are a bit off after 10 rounds or so, takes it back in and i hear him banging away in the back room, then he goes out and shoots a few more rounds and pronounces it perfect and then proceeds to pontificate on how to shoot properly. I smile and nod and say thanks, then go shoot. I have some improvement, but still no bueno in my eyes.

So today i decide to get out my Bushnell laser bore sighter. Yea, i have had it all this time but i thought it was me... So viola, i see the sights are off. It is left and low with a proper center sight aligned over target. Further out larger the deviation, as you would expect. I think moving the rear sight right will fix half the issue but i don't know how you fix the vertical alignment. SO i am looking for a gunsmith that has a site tool, ransom rest and laser. No more backwoods hillbilly ****, i want PRECISION! Anyone know a good gunsmith around Winston Salem NC? I am off tomorrow and will travel hundreds of miles to get it right.

Reading comprehension is fundamental... Not to be silly about it, but did you read the posts at all?

SIG is combat sighted @25yds... Or Spec'd to this. If it is in fact that off as you say, send it back, and if found to be off that much, it won't cost you nothing but time without your firearm. Say 3 weeks... Worst case scenario is that the firearm is within Spec and the POI issue is you, then you pay return shipping and ammo fee's, lol.

As it is almost a week since your post, I'm wondering if you got it all fixed?
OP, sorry to jack your thread.
