    Colt defender 45acp

    I have purchased a colt defender 45 and was wondering if anyone has had the problem of shooting really low at seven yards and worse at longer shots. I was thinking that the front sight might be too high? Thanks in advance for any replies.

    First and foremost you need to try shooting the gun from a rest to make sure its not shooter error. Anticipating recoil can lead to a clinch reflex causing the muzzle to dip.

    Taht would be my idea too since it's shooting really low,a little low could be a few things.If you can,have an experienced pistolero try it too,if they get the same results it's more likely the gun.You aren't running hot/light bullets through it are you?They will leave the barrel lower in the recoil arc,so std ball like Win white box 230 gr would be a better choice to get used to a small gun.

    The front sight is not the problem. That's the sight installed by the factory. I owned that same auto and it was a joy to shoot. But, I never shot it long range. It's a short barrel, defensive carry design. I agree, try shooting slowly from a rest. If you can have other shooters try putting rounds down range. It's a quality made firearm and maybe it is shooter error.
