    I Recently purchased a Razorback SN 23 for $850. The gun doesn't appear to have seen much use. The gun shoots to the left (3-4" at 20 yards) with every ammo I have tried and I have let friends shoot it with the same results. I don't want to own a gun with the rear sight pushed way to the right and wouldn't feel right selling it. It does not group well either, although that has not been my focus. What to do?

    Are you shooting from a rest ?

    Yep, and shooting left is typically a trigger pull issue.

    Move the target a few inches?

    Is the front sight driftable, too? If so, moving both would make it less noticeable. Other than that, custom sight work? or sell it.
    The third or fourth owner might be perfectly happy.

    I understand not wanting the sight jammed over one way or the other , but , at that distance it would only require an adjustment of .030 "or so . ( unless I made a mistake in my math )
    Good Luck !

    Contact Dan Wesson and explain your findings and see what they reccomend. They may want you to send it in. My Silverback 10 is spot on.

    It's already noticeably to the right. It was like that way when I bought it and I didn't notice it, my bad. I've pushed it more.

    Contact DW. Something's not fitted right.

    I agree, and think your answer starts here.
