Need some help. I bought the Canik TP9 elite combat and I’m installing the red dot that came with it. I have the red dot installed but the radical is nowhere near the front iron site. I’ve unlocked the adjustment locks and can’t get the radical even close to the front site.
Anybody else have this problem and how did you fix it?
Is the dot too high? That’s my guess. Is the dot supposed to co-witness? My thought is they may be independent of each other.
I watched a tfb torture test vid of the little Mossberg pistol, and they were pleasantly surprised that the dot co-witnessed, and explained it by the deep cut on the slide.
Just found this review, and they mention 4 plates for mounting various optics. Perhaps the wrong plate is installed and dot is not seated right?
I watched a number of how to install videos before attaching mine. They all said to use the 01 plate which I did and it came with the Mete. My understanding is that it is supposed to co-witness with the front site. Did some more research and it seems Vortex has a known problem with a small percentage of these Viper red dots. I was lucky enough to get one. The red dot is off so bad it’s obvious that if I were to take a shot it would hit the dirt low left 5 or 6 feet in front of the target. Not safe in the least. The radical has a line through it and appears as if I’m looking through broken glass which isn’t the case with the lens. The radical is also oblong and fuzzy.
