    ...it's not me, haters. :tongueout:

    Quack shot it and was about 3" high as well. He had the 9mm Springfield MilSpec (I shot it and was dead on) and his STI Tac and you could see that this is definitely the tall 10-8 rear on the EMP when side by side. I was planning on switching out the front anyway since I don't like the factory tritium SA uses on the EMP. Going to switch to a taller front.....and also going to try out a brass bead front with the 10-8 rear setup.

    No biggie dude. I was going to change out the factory front regardless. I much prefer the white outlined tritium like EB uses, but want to check out a the sight picture of the bead front/10-8 rear. The SA front is harder to pick up.

    A gold bead front sight was going to be an upgrade at some point.
    Will have to drop Don a pm and get an opinion on what I was doing wrong, to get it to shoot fine for me.
    Danged if I know, but it's got me stumped!

    Sounds simple, but were you holding a 6-o'clock hold? FWIW, my front is .191" and the rear is .375."

    Well at least you know it wasn't you. When do you plan on replacing the FS?

    When you stand infront of the window at night and you see your reflection, everyone outside can see you. Pervert! :animlol:

    Ok, so after some back and forth dialogue...we are going to go to a .325" (from the current .375") rear instead of going taller in the front.
