My RX was a couple inches low and left at 15 yards. A couple clicks up and right and I was in business. I wouldn't say it was sighted in. However... it was on paper.

I just picked up my P320 RX yesterday. I was disappointed to see the red dot was way, way to the right, almost out of the glass. I aligned it to just the top of the front sight. I have not yet had a chance to shoot it. I was under the impression these were ready to go out of the box.

I sent my P320c RX back to Sig because I was unable to adjust the red dot.. the up/down and left/right adjustment did not work.

Just got it back an when I align the front and rear sights perfectly, the red dot is in the center of the front sight dot. I am not sure if mine was sighted properly but I am assuming that is the correct factory configuration. Is that an accurate assumption?

Also, I tried adjusting the red dot up (CCW) and was expecting to see the red dot move up but it did the opposite.. is that normal?

Please excuse my ignorance.. this is my very first red dot of any kind and the manual does not really clarify this..

My RX that has proven to be dead-on accurate at 15yds lines up with the iron sights as you describe, right in the middle of the green dot. I hear a lot of people say they align their dot with the top of the front sight but that's not how it's supposed to work.

I also agree that the directional markings on the adjustment screws are counter intuitive. Hopefully you don't have to adjust anything else ever.

Both of mine were very close, needing only minor tweaking. Both have held their adjustment very well.

So it sounds like they are sighted correctly.. So with that, I can just put the red dot where I want the shot to go and it should land there?

The reason I ask is because I see some folks saying their optic was sighted like ours are but they moved the red dot up a bit to the middle of the lens.

Seems like that would be a bad thing..

Yes, when sighted perfectly, anywhere the dot is over will be exactly where your bullet goes (assuming good trigger manipulation).

I think what they mean is instead of trying to align the dot on or near the iron sights, keep the dot in the middle of the optic while firing, giving you a more balanced sight picture and room for visual errors.

There are people who own these that either aren't good enough to tell that the dot is slightly out of alignment or don't care. Don't take every persons description for how theirs is set up for gospel.

Gotcha!

Appreciate all the great info. I bought a gun rest so I will be taking it to the range next time.. From that point on, I can guage my accuracy improvement (or lack there of) lol..

Dumb question here. Is your gun sitting in a rest while you are making your adjustments. Also I am assuming you are shooting from a rest also.

Mine and my friends were both off, ALSO so was the one supplied by sig at the factory sig day at one of the local gun stores. so no, I would say they are not aligned.

Mine was about 2" left and 3" low out of the box. Easily fixed, just be prepared to spend a few minutes dialing it in.

My dot was far right out of the box. I aligned it with the front iron sight and then fine tuned it once I took it to the range.

I haven't actually used it yet. I bought it while my P320 was getting the optic repaired.

My 320rx was low and left. After adjusting, the dot is in the center of the glass well above the front sight and slightly to the right. I shot from a rest and its dead on at 10 yards. I'm going to play with it a little and see how it shoots at 3 and 7 yards with it sighted in at 15 and 25 yards. Basicaly going to see how sighting it in at further distance affects the point of impact at close distance.

I like the dot away from the front sight post. If your going to run a red dot that's lined up with the iron sights then why run a red dot at all. Just use the iron sights.
