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...

The website for these guys is a bit sparse on information. Part of me thinks it may not do super hot on the denim and ballistic gelatin test but it will definitely sell well at gun shops. Video at http://www.mibullet.com/Vid_07.html

Hard Cast Bullets in Service Calibers?

HGT75 ·
Is there any DocGKR-style reliable data on the performance of these cartridges? Some forums on the errornet have been buzzing about them and sparked my curiosity.  The stuff from Buffalo Bore would be an example.

Part of your equation is how hard are your bullets? Some manufacturers will use the same molds and cast moderate hardness for bullseye velocities with a harder alloy for IPSC/IDPA Major and service (the harder bullets resist leading barrels better at higher velocities). You'll find cast bullets will typically be smokier (especially in indoor ranges) than plated or jacketed bullets.

How deep do these the projectiles penetrate in both unobstructed shots and after first hitting an intermediate barrier? What happens with a peripheral hit against an opponent? What is the accuracy like at 10, 100, 300, and 600 meters? If a precision shot has to be made, perhaps into the eye socket of an opponent, like in a hostage situation or on a partially obscured threat standing behind innocents, what is the risk to a hostage or bystander who is in very close proximity to the target?

Are you asking about terminal balistic studies on home brewed hardcast loads or are you asking about something else like their viability in shooting games?

I'm not sure what you are looking for. Like gelatin penetration? Obviously such bullets do not expand at all.

They punch a caliber size hole that typically goes in excess of 20"--no expansion, minimal TC.

They advertised being at the SHOT media day and I was hoping to launch some rounds, but they only had a booth, no range space. After listening to the pitch for a bit, I mentioned it was apparent they were trying to market toward a market other than MIL/LE and the invertor claimed they were popular with LE already. Uh huh...

Looks like miniature chain shot to me. Good for when a home intruder comes at you with a fleet of miniature cargo ships that you want to disable but not damage by dismasting them. You just have to remember to fire on the up roll, laddies....

I want to put this in the FAIL thread just for the fucking website, where every paragraph has three colors of type, with every other word in quotes or trademarked. Looks like a gayer, low-range, less-reliable version of all the SALVO shit has come back. Which I think we don't use for a reason. Duplex bullets were big on the ACR trials, and seemed to be a snap to build, buy, and integrate into the system, but there's a reason we don't use them also. I think it's (as mentioned) because we like...

I spent two minutes of my life that I will never get back watching the intro video. Increased hit probability? In the video a female fires on a paper target with a handgun, at :28, and they zoom in to show hit to center mass and a huge frag over the target's left shoulder. Not to mention "semi-lethal" !?!? FAIL.

Man, I'm sold!!! This thing promises NO MORE PANIC FIRE!!!! And it says right there, that if you shoot someone, "Typical Medical Response - D.O.A." All that, and a "High Hit Profile" thrown in for free!! Seriously, I give this a month and some asswipe will ask me if he can carry this shit on duty. The only thing stopping this is the price, as cops are cheap...$249.99 for a box of 50. I mean, that's 50 D.O.A. dudes, but still.....

-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?

Re: Glock factory zero and sight picture

@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...
