Glock factory zero and sight picture

Thanatos ·
Hey guys, I have 2 gnat's-ass questions about pistol sight pictures and factory zero distance. 1. At what range are factory Glock sights zeroed (assuming here that most/all standard-height aftermarket sights would follow suit if properly installed). 2. Within the sight picture at the zeroed distance, does the bullethole in the target bisect the top edge of the front sight post, or sit behind the post centered in the white dot? If the latter, at what range should I set the target for a...

EDC and shirt holes

Not sure what forum this fits best under so I'll start here. I noticed that my summer shirts were getting holes in them. All of the holes were in the same place - front right side. No idea why this was happening. Finally, I figured out that carry AIWB was causing the pistol to rub against the shirt enough so that it was making a hole. So, to fix that I found some iron on material in a fabric store. I cut out a piece about 8 ½ x 11” and centered it about where the rear edge of the slide would...

-25 yards is a good distance to have your sights zero’d. 15 yards would also suffice if that’s the farthest your range went. -Different ammo may have different zero. For example, out of a Gen4 Glock 17, 115 grain ammo may print a different POI than 147 grain ammo -Some guns print high/low out of the box, regardless of ammo. Your front sight height would be the easiest change to dictate elevation. You may need to change your front sight height to get your desired POA/POI relationship. (Sight...

IIRC Glock does not give an accuracy guarantee. However, if you send one in for work, it has to shoot (5rds?) inside a 2" circle at 15m before it leaves their hands. This came from the armorer's course/ instructor workshop I attended about two years ago.

My understanding is that you could adjust the lasers on the SIRT pistol. I will check the owners manual when I get home. Did you get any of the manuals with the device?

@darbywpd It did come with manuals, and you are correct re: laser adjustment. I was just trying to figure out which rdistance to a zero at. However, on further testing, the laser point of impact relative to the sight picture is jumping around wildly between shots, and there’s something rattling inside the gun. Also, the laser adjustment set screws are very loose. I’m returning it. I heard the SIRTs had some questionable QC when they first came out. I’m wondering if I got a first-run lemon. I...

If it was rubbing bad enough to make a hole over time, how bad were you printing? Have you noticed any difference in your weapon printing after you have applied this "mod"? I would think you would notice a slight reduction. Dave

Didn't seem to be that bad in a mirror. It's a Glock 19 in an eidolon and I don't have a gut pushing the pistol out. �� It does seem to print slightly less, but, not that much to begin with.

Do you spend a fair amount of time in a vehicle where the seatbelt may be causing friction?

I've done the same thing with my pants to avoid holster wear and smooth out potential printing. I started with white patching material, but once you go black, you never go back.
