      New guy with a 226 question

      I just purchased my first gun a Sig 226 with night sights. I have a question about the sights. I am shooting low ( about 3" at 10 yards ) the shots are not pushed left but maybe a .5-1". My question is are you suppose to align all three dots in line with each other and if so where should the shot be ( behind the dot, below or above ). If I make a slight triangle with the sights it seems to hit in line with the two outer dots. I would rather line up all three dots and have the shot hit just above the center dot ( and hopefully thats what it does and I just need alot of practice!). If some one could tell me how the gun sights should line up I would appreciate it alot. and maybe a drawing showing the sight alignment with shot placement. Thanks Matt G.

      Yup..that's a fact. Most all combat type pistols are sights that way. That way6 n one picking up the weapon has to think about a thing...line em up and let the hammer fall I group 3" or smaller with my 226 at 25 yards. That's single action though, double action I'm not near as good with it

      you'll have a lot of fun with that pistol. They are just...well..Great guns!. I'm a 1911 addict no question but I do carry and range shoot with my Sig a lot. It will feed anything. Simply,,,It works...always

      Can't wait to get a couple target sheets from 25 yard off-bench and off-hand once I get my sights in.. My smith is waiting on sights to zero in my new CPO 226 9. I do know the gun will do 2" groups pretty quickly at 10 yards at rest but was 1.5" high and left off the bulls eye, so we're dialing it in.

      Sighted in last Friday and did a little left/right adjustment with the new rear site.. Accurate little pistol. I lucked up. Reasonably 3" groups at 10 off-bench, but I imagine a bit better care with aim and trigger squeeze and the gun could do 2" groups.

      On my gun though, I have different sights from Sig (non-rail German slide CPO gun). My sights are 2 dot, where you line up the front above the rear dot which is in the bottom of the notch, which I'm finding that I really like.. and though I'm fairly sure I've seen nothing that tells me they're night sites, the dots are very very visible in the not-so-well lit gun range.
