Agreed that it is unlikely to be the gun, but a taller front sight will make it shoot *lower*.Very unlikely it's the gun; however, in the event it WERE the gun, the only "adjustment" necessary would be to get a taller front sight post.
I think the OP is just expecting adjustable sights to correct his tendency to shoot low. Don't think his issue is really a sight problem as much as it is likely to be a trigger and grip issue, and just learning to shoot one of these little pistols.Why would you want adjustable sights on a purley defensive firearm?
Welcome to a great sport and hobby.Hi All, I'm pretty much a newbee to pistol shooting. Just got an xds in .45, 3.3 in. It seems to be shooting low. Although I will do some more shooting from a rest, I was wondering if there are adjustable rear sights made for this gun.
I have a new 9mm XDS with a 4" barrel that shoots about 2" low at 7 yards and about 3" low at 10 yards.Welcome to a great sport and hobby.
Since you're just starting out, consider this article, written by two-time Top Shot runner-up and former Federal Air Marshal, Chris Cerino:

Before you start looking at potential hardware problems - and yes, they do exist - realize that more often than not, it's the loose nut behind the gun that's the real problem.
Shoot the gun from a rest and take as much as yourself out of the equation as possible to see how the gun prints. Even better, get an experienced hand to shoot it (also from a rest).
If there's truly something up with the gun, then pursue the proper fix.
