I picked up a Very gently used Ruger LCR-X 3". The front sight is white and fixed with a fully adjustable rear sight. I can shoot with both eyes open. I shot consistantly low. I did adjust the rear sight to raise it. But I still seemed low. I only shot 50 shots. I seemed to shoot the 158 grain bullets better than the lighter 125 grain bullets. My sight picture was centered and flat across the top like in the manual. I am wondering if I need the bottom of the white flush with the bottom of the rear sight. Thus elevating the gun. Ideally i I would like a 6:00 hold. I have read read that the trigger is unique and it is me doing it. I dry fired extendively before going to the range. So I thought I had the trigger figured out. The recoil is very mild and controllable to me. The nice grip is the reason I suspect. So has anyone else been down this road ?
A friend recommended that I experiment with different sight set-ups and I have moved towards a wider/deeper rear notch. I have found that calling shots is much easier. The problem is, the notch on a traditional Bomar style sight can be widened, but it is very difficult to make deeper as a result of running into the top of the sight assembly. The sight I currently have has been milled to allow for a deeper notch. Generally, it seems that most people purchase tall fixed rear sights and then start cutting from there. Maybe I am missing something, but why doesn't someone just make a taller rear sight blade? This would allow for a bigger rear notch without modifying the Bomar style sight assembly. The front sight would obviously have to be taller to accommodate the height of the rear sight blade.
