    this is what I was toll by a German that used to work at HK, at the end of the day HK passes a cart with cold beer to their employees, they should only get a couple, but some guys don't drink, and they give their allowances to the next guy, that must be what happened to the guy putting your sights in, 3 to 4 Becks is a lot of alcohol. LOL

    My P2000 LEM was like this when I got it. Front sight was off to one side and I was throwing rounds slightly wide. Just went to a LGS and they adjusted for me real quick and centered it.
    Current:
    HK45 v1
    P2000 v3 9mm
    P2000 v2 --> v1 9mm
    USP v1 9mm
    VP9 LE Grey

    Past:
    P2000sk v3 .40 (traded for the USP9)
    P30L v3 9mm (sold before moving to California)

    Lightbulb Guns are for shooting. Actually shoot the gun before complaining... Please

    More so in the front though.
    Is this a common issue with new pistols?
    It's a common issue that people complain about new handguns without firing a single round.
    All my Hk weapons, and I have a few, are sighted in dead on from the factory.
    Try actually using the weapon as designed and then see what happens
    WolfieRules and MrShipwreck like this.

    At least they do it at the END of the day. I was told by my cousin that used to work at *&^%@soft that they were allowed to have one drink on their LUNCH break. No stipulation as to how big that drink could be (Can we say a pitcher??), but they were allowed one drink each working day. So she said.

    ANYway...OT. My Ruger pistol came with the rear sight off centered to the left, brand new outta the box. Tho all my German guns were centered correctly. I will say tho, while it should be centered right, sometimes things happen. Then happen again when they slip thru QC. (I work in a major brand warehouse...trust me on how that happens).
    Call HK after you put a couple of boxes thru it, if it's a major problem, and they'll get you taken care of pretty quickly. Tho, if you haven't fired it yet, I will go ahead and warn you, the VP9's shoot pretty close to point of aim, not point of sights, so you may notice that you have to have a 12 o'clock hold (centering the dots almost above the bullseye) to be centering the target. Both of mine shoot about 1.5 to 2 inches low at 7 yards.
    I've HEARD, but can't confirm from personal use (I haven't used one with the nightsights) that the nightsights aren't quite as bad about that.

    Also OT, both of mine came with barely a sheen of oil. Inside, or out. And no grease.

    Oh and BTW there's a Pineapple Fanta sitting right next to the bed as I type right now. ;)

    I'm going to jump in here since we're on this subject. I just bought a used USP in .357. At 7 yds. it was hitting 6" low. I noticed that there are trijicon sights not factory sights. I decided to replace the front sight with a factory sight but there are options in thickness. How do I determine which sight would have been originally installed?
