I sent two of my CZ's off to Cajun for fiber optic sight installation and I'm well pleased with the work, but the P-09 is shooting a might to the left at fifteen yards. I'm wondering if I should mess with it or leave it alone? It's a woods/hiking gun not a target pistol. What do you think?

I'd say it depends on how much. I changed the sights on my glock 43 to XS Big Dots (as I have several other guns), but I got this one off just a little bit and like a dummy I didn't check it before loctiting. It shoots about a foot left at 85 yards now, but I'll probably just leave it. This kind of gun, I'll probably never need to shoot at that distance anyway; and if I do, I know where it shoots.

If it's not so far off that it bothers you, might just be best to leave it. Would it be a big deal to adjust? I mean, is it just a loctited set-screw or something more involved?

I'd say an 1 inch. The rear sight is lock tited. It was done by Cajun after test firing and verifying the sight.
It's an Allen wrench type screw and won't be removed easily. It could be me but this gun shot to the point of aim before. I\m going to bench rest it again with different ammunition before sending it back to Cajun if I must. I know 1 inch at 15 yards is not a big deal, but I'm picky as hell about my combat guns. The group is to the left, not one shot.

An inch at 15 would bother me as well.

do you have an electric stove? is the sight metal? if it is metal, get the ring on the stove red hot, then touch the sight to the ring until the heat breaks loose the loctite

It was me after all. I was shooting the CZ97b so much that when I switched to the P-09 I was using too much trigger. I would have swore it was the gun until I had the same results with a CZ 75b. Mea Culpa.

:beer: That's why we test & experiment; so we know for sure.
