    optional sights for cw 45

    I have a cw 45, and my dad has a cw9, both with standard sights and the way I would naturally line up the sights they both shoot low, has anyone put on night sights or fiber optic sights and had it fix this?
    otherwise I was thinking of miling the front sight and mooving the dot lower. anyone else solve this some how or are you guys not seeing this issue?

    Are you lining up on the dot, or on the top edge of the front sight?

    If the sight has a strongly-visible dot, the maker probably assumed that you'd line up on the dot, and calculated front-sight height based upon that.
    But if you use the top edge of the front-sight blade, the way most people are trained to do, you'd be shooting low.

    the front sight has a white dot, and the rear sight has a notch with a white post down the center, without thinking or shooting it first I would put the white dot on top of the post. To shoot bulseyes I have to line the bottom of the dot with the top edge of the rear sight leaving quite a gap between the post and the dot. as it is right now the top edge of the rear sight is black, hard to see, although I could paint it. I can shoot small groups if I line them up like i said and let them go low, if i try to line them up to compensate I cant really do it consistantly, its just to big of a gap between the post and the dot, for my liking
