Liked my recently purchased XD-40 Tactical so much I went out and bought another for SO. I was improving with 1st pistol--about 500 rounds through it, no malfunctions, grouping a little low left at 50 feet--no rest, just offhand, two hand grip. The new one--out of the box--same 8" target, same sight picture, sight alignment, same ammo, groups about 2" tighter and slightly high at 12 o'clock. I figured the low left was finger position, trigger pull, anticipating recoil et cetera, but why would the new one shoot a tighter group and in different quadrant of target? Shouldn't factory sights be a little closer on 2 identical guns? I want to upgrade to an adjustable rear sight, just haven't decided which one. Suggestions--nothing elaborate--just windage and elevation. Thanks

The Dawson adjustable rear sight is pretty reasonably priced, and from what I hear it's a great sight. There are some pictures posted here, if you search a bit.

It's in your head.

You want to think the newer gun will shoot better than the old one, so subconsciously you are more relaxed and have more refined control.

I do this every time with a new golf club. The first few times I swing it, the ball is straight and far. After a few holes I can't hit it better than the last one.
