A normal sight picture results in a avg. 8" below-target zone.
This is my first compact, my first KIMBER and my first 9mm.
I've considered that my trigger pull may influence the barrel down but I don't have that scenario with my COLT LWC 45cal. It has a normal sight picture.
Is this my grip posture or is it a sight issue?
Thanks so much
Your not the first Micro9 owner to experience POA/POI sight issues.
If it didn't change/improve with different ammo, I would contact Kimber CS and get an RMA for return and warranty work.
