I finally ran my newly-acquired .357 in an IDPA match today and missed a falling plate with four shots until I realized it was hitting about six or eight inches left at ten yards.
Later, I went through a few boxes at the ten-inch plates at 35 yards and confirmed the sight error.
By moving the rear sight blade just about all the way over, I got back on target.
What would cause that sort of inherent incorrect sight alignment? A turned barrel? It looks okay, but I'm not used to seeing a rear sight adjusted all the way like that.
Yes, I tried resting it and firing single-action, too.
Thanks
Bill

Thats definatly a problem inherent to the actual production of the gun, unless someone changed that barrel. One would think that the company would stand behind it. I've had a few S&W revolvers that had the barrel "over clocked" and experienced the same thing as you. S&W fixed them for free.
