Got a new Smith and Wesson 629 classic with a 5" fully lugged barrel. This is my first S&W revolver. I was wondering are the sights on a new gun pretty well sighted in or do they require some tweaking. I am positive the biggest problem is me not the gun and I don't want to start moving things until I get some decent groups. I was just wondering how they are right out of the box. I may also want to get some different grips the stock ones are ok but I hear good things about pachmayr grips. I really like the gun ever since I shot a friends 44 I knew I had to have one. For now I just punch paper with it but I want to be as accurate as I can with it. Thanks for any input.
Let me say this about that....If you are shooting your gun with the sights the way they came from the factory and you have a nice fairly tight group, either high, low, left, or right then it just needs the sights moved up, down, left, or right....HOWEVER..if you shot a group that looks like a shotgun pattern...well it's the man behind the trigger....I'm sure you already knew that but just in case you didn't. Have a great new year with you new S&W.
Try it from a sand bagged steady rest!
99% of problem was me. I did find the screw that holds the rear sight on kept coming loose. Little thread locker and its been good ever since.
