    I have a Kimber Gold Match Stainless Steel.45ACP. I took it to the range and was consistently shooting low and to the left. I adjusted the verticle sight and now shoot on target but to the left. I tried to figure out how to adjust the horizontal sight and just couldn't figure it out. The manual that came with the pistol doesn't talk about it either. Are the tolerances on the Kimber supposed to be so tight that they shouldn't need any horizontal adjustment? Or can somebody tell me how to do it? Or even point me to a web page. I checked at Kimberamerica.com, but none of their pages pull up.

    Thanks in advance

    Rear sight adjustment

    Move the rear sight in the direction that you want the bullet to move. :D <>-<

    You might try to use a little less finger on the trigger. I have to due this when I shoot my friend's Mini Firestorm 9mm. However, I do not have this problem with my Kimber or SAA.
