    I guess one can find a few here and there with an issue, but for the most part, they are super reliable.

    I don't know what the failure rate was at that time. But there was ongoing threads on the problem here back then. I think it was specifically the 9mm Glocks. The whole thing just sickened me. I don't know the history of Glock USA, etc. But my gut tells me Glock, like Sig now, got polluted with "American Mediocrity" when they started moving things to America.

    Christ. This Gen 4 G22 has factory Glock night sights which are mechanically zeroed, but the thing hits a foot high and left at 45 yards. I have to shoot it of a rest this weekend and configure sights that will be shootable for practice. That's pretty annoying.

    Good luck. I hope you have fun in the process.

    I will. The gun runs good, so that's great. If I dial the POI in, I'll shoot the heck out of it.

    Definitely 9mm over .40 for all the reasons already discussed in this thread, but I'm a big believer in having options. I remember not too many years ago when 9mm was wildly overpriced or out of stock everywhere, I bought several cases of .40 and it's still on a shelf in the basement. Did move on from some guns though; kept a stainless slide USP compact and a homebrew Glock. A few years ago I was bitten by the poly80 bug pretty badly, I ended up building a few, and one I built into G23 type with a bunch of aftermarket parts. Shot it enough to break it in and make it cycle reliably, and I think it's been in the safe ever since, but I like the idea that if I ever have to relocate professionally to a left coast state, the USP is on the roster (IIRC), and I can have the frankengun just for range play.

    Not much you can do about the height, but check that alignment of the rear sight.

    If you aren’t putting a dot on it, these are a good low cost option…

    Ameriglo has a good selection of different height front sights. I just need to shoot it off the rest to get a calculation of which one I need.

    That Amazon link is and interesting cheap option. Thanks.

    I banged the rear sight all the way to the right in the dove tail and shot the pistol again today. Windage is good, and it's only 2-3" high at 25 yards. So I'm leaving it as-is.

    Interesting comment from junior. He shot this 40 cal today. Had to slow down and mind his fundamentals, and he felt that it made him shoot the 9mm better. I'd always thought the opposite... 9mm is a practice round for full power pistol shooting, but maybe he's onto something.
