.30 Super Carry Decocker
I haven’t I will try to do so tomorrow
@Rondall1 … and welcome to 1911 Wild World… where nothing is simple or easy … in contrast to Glock Perfection World…
I don’t like to be normal and like everyone else why I had to pick one of the largest concealed carry gun
It’s not a Glock 40
Yup, us too. Saint John Browning does it again.

GOOD for YOU RondallUno! Conformity Sucks! That is why some member comes on here with an issue/question we inspect the hell out of it until it’s solved (usually). If we can’t @ least we have fun doing it!
So ask away! Anytime. We are here to help.
So many guns, so little m$ney.
In this formula, if the Sight Radius is in inches and the Impact distance is in inches, what scale is used for the target distance? Inches, feet, yards?
Sorry for confusion…
Formula uses inches.
So please remember to convert your target distance from yards / feet to inches.
Thank you very much. This formula will be useful to me.
If you know your current front sight height, this is the easy to understand and calculate tool:
Actually this is the best Company to buy parts for 1911 / 2011 pistols. Fit is guaranteed. If something doesn’t fit, you get replacement or great advice how to make their parts working properly in your firearm.
I’ll play in.
- Did you shoot the gun prior to changing the sites?
1a. Was it zero’d where you wanted it then?
- Did you change ammo types or bullet weights?
2a. 185gr shoot flatter than 230gr, defensive rounds are generally hotter than range ammo… as an example
- What distance are you trying to zero your pistol at?
3a. If you have to do that at 3-7 yards then you have a problem if your doing it at 25 yds then mebby not so much.
“All of our sights are optimized for a “combat style” 25-yard POI result.”
Correct Sight Picture (truglo.com)
Sight Picture Diagram:
I tend to shoot high with “6o’clock” sights and low with “combat” sights at close range. We have confirmed you have “combat” sights. The “triangle” sight picture you are using with them will compensate at close range, but shoot high at longer distance - to a limited longer distance, i.e., all bullets arc downward and will slow down and fall if they never impact anything to stop them.
Also bear in mind most self-defense incidents are very dynamic and one would not normally be shooting at something/somebody that is horizontal. So, as has been said, it is not a major concern if you are shooting a little low at close range, but it could be a concern if you are shooting extremely low at close range. You might also try shooting the pistol fully supported on a bag and compair Point of Aim (POA) vs. Point of Impact (POI)
Edit: We also do not know what sight picture sights were originally on the pistol, so you might have changed from a “6o"clock” to a “combat”
