Since the day I bought it my SR1911 LW shoots high @25-35 feet which has driven me nuts. I have not tried to see what would happen at a longer distance as my eyes aren't much good past that distance and most fire fights are going to be within that distance range. I finally took my dremell and filed the sights down 5-6 thousands and gave it a try. Today at the range, it hits POA which I have been striving after. Prior to this though, I ordered a front sight from Brownell's who stock Ruger front sights and it only cost me $5.95. I figured it I screwed up I would have to have a back up sight just in case. Better be safe than sorry. Prior to this I tried to order a sight from Ruger and they didn't have any to sell retail wise. That part really surprised me. The only sights they carry on hand, or so I was told, was the ones that are committed to the guns they are manufacturing.
