shooting low

took my .45 and my .40 to the range yesterday and fired some rounds through both to remain familiar with them. I shoot well with the .45 (both same model, Taurus 24/7) so I know Im shooting well enough to judge that the .40 is shooting low. Target was about 15 yds out and it shot consistently low through 3 different shooters, just to rule out possibilities. I think I need a lower front sight. Is this something that can be done by myself? Or does a local gunsmith need to take care of this? Or is this something that even needs to be sent back to manufacturer? The gun is a Taurus 24/7 pro .40. There is a set screw on top of the front sight and it looks pretty simular to a glocks front sight, although I cant say for certain its exactly the same.

Kenny, with the 3-dot sights, I've found that POI varies greatly from gun to gun, even within the same manufacturer's line. With some, the dot is POA/POI. With others, the top of the sight is POA/POI.

I certainly would not start fiddling with sights for an inch at 15 yards, unless you just want to replace them with night sights or another manufacturer's sights.

Have fun with whatever you decide to do! :drinks
