    I bought a Glock 26 over Christmas. I'm shooting low and left. Figured it was me. Added a Lasermax Guide Rod Laser and the laser is "on" with the bullet pattern. Is it possible the sights (NON-ADJUSTABLE) are off? Any advice as to what I should do?

    There's nothing wrong with the pistol, that's just Glock Perfection at work. ;)

    Shoot it from a solid rest, laser may still not be zero'd or you're just suffering from a case of the LnL's due to your technique.

    Glock sights are inexpensive polymer and come in different heights. The right side of the rear sight has a marked code, stacked short over long dashes. If your rear sight is 6.5 mm and hitting low, you can try a taller 6.9 mm or 7.3 mm replacement. If the pistol is hitting left of aim, drift the rear sight slightly to the right. It won't take much. I use a vice on the bare slide with soft no-marring vice inserts and nylon punch. It is easy to do and if done properly will not show any marks at all.

    Depending one whether you are right or left handed, you may be shooting low left due to trigger jerk/slap or increasing grip squeeze. Since you own other pistols and are getting groups, I was assuming that you had good form and just need to sight in. If one of you buddies is a marksman have him give it a try and see if it also prints low left for him.

    Thanks for your reply! For $5 I can't go wrong giving it a try so I'm ordering a taller sight to see if it helps. Sounds easy enough to replace. If I have the slide in a vice with inserts I just drive the old sight out and the new one in?
