Adjusting Rear Sight

Hi All:

I am a new member who just took possession of a new K6s. Took it to the range, and I must say, I was very impressed. One problem, however. It shoots a bit to the left. I checked the owners manual and there is nothing about how to adjust the rear sight. I called Kimber CS, and was told that I need a sight puller to make any adjustment. They recommend a NCStar Universal sight puller. i called NCStar, who I might add were extremely helpful, and they told me that no, their sight puller will not work on the K6s. So...has anyone figured out how to adjust the rear sight? thanks.

Your local gunsmith most likely has a sight pusher, and would be glad to adjust your sight. Just let him know how far it is from POA, and at what range.

Welcome to the forum Gaius, how about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

Have you shot it from a rest? I shoot all my new guns from a rest before changing anything. When I find one that doesn't shoot where I aim, I check it from a rest, I usually find it isn't the gun. YMMV

Same here. I have found the exact same thing many times.

Funny thing happened. I was shooting Prvi 158 grain RNL which gave me that clear nine o'clock group. Yesterday I tried what I considered to be my carry rounds for the K6s, 135 Grain +P Gold Dots, and they were spot-on-shot-out-the-X-Ring accurate. Well that was fun.

Right, left, high, low can all vary with ammo choice, grip, and trigger finger position. I practice at 30' with these little snubbies I am pretty content if I can keep them in a 4" group. The likelihood of ever needing a gun in a SD situation at distance is probably pretty small so practice point shooting and if you have the luxury of having a automatic target return, try starting it at 50' and push the return button before you start shooting.

I agree. from an SD perspective, I spend most of my training time at ranges of three yards, give or take. This includes dynamic shooting as well as multiple threat targets. On a typical B27 or B27 E target, note that a score of 8, 9, or 10 are all worth 5 points. There is a a reason for this. If the mission is to stop the bad guy, any hit within the 8 ring or better is a good hit. It may not always be pretty, but then again, pretty is not the mission with these types of weapons.
