sp2022 sights

I was out shooting this afternoon and at 30 yards all of my shots were hitting low. When i took a good long look at the sights i noticed, my dots do not line up when i properly lined up the top edges of the sight. i took some masking tape out of the truck and covered the rear sight and trimmed it all around the rear sight. now when i lined up the sights and covered the target with the dot, SPOT ON... now to my question, is this normal?

I'm not sure what I would expect from 30 yards with a 3.9 inch barrel. I think if I was on the paper I'd be happy.

That being said mine was fairly accurate at 25 yards. But I wasn't expecting 1 inch groups either.

And since mine is my carry pistol I won't ever being shooting anything important at more than about 10 feet. At 10 feet, bad guy dead.

well, even with that big sight dot, after a couple clips, i was able to keep it in the 4-5 inch circle where the targett goes from black to white.

what i want to know is, is it a common thing for the dots to be lined up and the sights not properly aligned?

Not to sound rude but isn't that what the dots are for? Mine is also fairly accurate at most distances up to 45 foot (the max distance of my local pistol range) by lining up the dots, I really never paid attention to the tops of the sight being lined up. I'll have to look at it. If your 2022 is a 9 mm you should have a #8 front and rear sight. I believe if it is a 40 or 357sig then you should have a #6 and a #8. Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

You are correct as far as i know about the dots being for sight alignment from everything ive been told and mine is a 40 and it has 6&8 sights... but when i line the sighs up like standard old iron sights and cove my target with the dot, it hits every time. So what im wondering is if i need to order a new rear sight to have installed or will it be the same?

Ok. I was not in complete understanding of your sight question. On that note I am not sure on that. Maybe some of the Veteran Sig Owners can clarify on what can be expected with your sight issue.

Mine shoots low too scooter. At 25 yards it's 8" low using the 12 o'clock sight picture. Talked to Sig about it and the cost to ship and test fire the gun was more than buying a #10 rear and #8 front night sites to get POA and POI the same so I ordered some new sights. Lesson learned...don't buy a new gun on the net,get it from a local dealer then take the thing back if it's not right.

I have five sig firearms, with three dot sight configurations and or night sights. When aligning the dots on all of them, the top of the front sight and the rear blades do not line up. In all of the cases, the rear dots are slightly lower than the front dot when I line up the top of the front sight with the top of the rear blades. Not sure if this is only Sig issue, but..and I say BUT...The dots are only there for quick sight acquisition, combat use (My humble opinion only!!). If you are target shooting, placing the front sight on the target with the rear blade level with the top of the front sight should be more accurate, provided the sights are properly sighted in for that purpose. NOTE: you can adjust your sights so that the dots line up, if you so choose, for paper punching or target shooting. You control what sight picture you wish to use.

i ended up taking a yellow paint pen and highlighting the top edges of my front and rear sights. Ill be takibg ir to the range tomorrow since its too cold here to shoot outside.. its the same thing i did to my 22 and it made a world of difference.
