    Default New USP 45 shoots low

    I just shot my brand new USP 45 and it seems to be shooting about 2 inches low at 25 feet.
    I fired a whole 50 round box of SIG ammo at the target, and there was one large hole, but two inches low.
    I guess that I need a shorter front sight, or it is me, but I think that it is the gun.

    Shouldn't it be a little closer then that?

    I am going to try some different ammo and see what happens.

    Anny thoughts?

    If it’s a LEM try less finger on the trigger. Only use the “almost” tip of your trigger finger pad. I was having the exact same issue with a new p2000 LEM. Adjusted my finger placement a small bit and it made a huge improvement on POI. So for me... LEM-less finger on trigger.

    Don't use a 6 o'clock hold. Use combat sight picture, front gunsight covers the target.

    Flinching? Check that.

    Mine likes the dead on (or cover up) hold (bottom sight picture):

    Don't have a USP45, but aren't they sighted for 25 yards? 25 feet is just a little over 8 yards and would shoot low, as expected, for sights set for almost three times the distance. Just guessing.

    I've recently installed a green dot optic on my VP9 and zeroed at 25 yards, it shoots a couple inches low at seven yards.

    I was using the 6 o'clock hold, that would make a big difference compared to the combat sight picture.

    Cool, I have to go back to the range!!!

    Thanks for the help.

    Your USP45 is working exactly as designed.

    Yes, go back to the range and try different hold on the sites and you will succeed in finding what workis FOR YOU!

    sounds like you are going to have a great range day coming up.

    HAVE FUN WITH IT.


    and I found this - hope it helps

    This ^ My USPs all use a cover hold and spot on.

    With factory sights, yes. All my HKs are combat hold.
