Many guns have that gap - remember, with the design of a tilting barrel, there needs to be room thru the front of the slide for the barrel to tilt.

I would say the #1 thing to do is try and let someone else shoot the gun. Get an experienced shooter to try it. Sometimes, sights are off - Occassionally, you need a higher or lower sight. Usually, it is the shooter

But, also, on certain guns, which part of the trigger finger you place onto the trigger can effect how your gun tilts as the trigger is pulled.

When I got my USP compact, it shot low on the 1st trip. I was sure it was the sights, but thought I would give it 1 more shot. For a few days before the range trip, I practiced w/ snap caps. Next trip to the range, itw as fine...

Just my 2 cents

I just got a Glock 21c and it was hitting low and my dealer said it was me. I told him that the other guns I shot that day did fine. He still said it was me. Yhe more I shoot the gun the better I get. If I think about it that happens with most of my new guns. The Walther p99, I could not hit the paper but now I'm hitting the black. The only guns so far out of the box that shot great the first time was the Springfield XD40 and 45. Why I don't know. When I bought my glock 30 it took a long time for me to get good with it. It's now the gun I shoot the best with. Funny how these things work. I never give up on a gun until I have put 2k rounds through it.
Glocks commonly make people shoot low and to the left - U really have to practice. Except for the Glock 34, which comes w/ a lighter trigger stock, I never could get Glocks to shoot right for me. That's why I only own the G34.
