Which way to drift rear sights?




Guys need some help on this one. If my shots were grouping to the right, of my intended target which direction do I drift the rear Novak-type sights of my EFS? I would of course be standing behind the pistol. Thanks!

The way I understand it, if you want the group to shift left, move the sights to the left.

Pushing the rear sight left brings the rear of the slide to the right. When the rear of the slide is farther right, the muzzle moves towards the left, bringing your group to the left.

Try using this:

1 2 3 - Imaginary target (POI)
1 2 3 - Front sight
1 2 3 - Rear sight

If POA= POI (2-2-2) then you're ok!

If POI = 3, (2-2-3) then move rear sight to position 1

If POI = 1, (2-2-1) then move rear sight to position 3

Hope this helps!

Newcomer,

This is exactly the kind of "POI Adjusting for Dummies" guide I was looking for. Wil try it out the next time i get to the range. Thanks!

I agree with most of the other replies. I was taught that you always move the rear sight in the direction you want the bullets to go. In your case, you want the bullets to impact left, so you move the rear sight to the left.
