I purchased this 48 through the blue label program for short money. My first range day, I was shooting low left - and off the target @50'. The second range run through I was shooting exactly 1" left at 25'.

Today I actually noticed why:

So I have never changed sights on a pistol before. What do I need to fix this myself?

Whack it with a plastic hammer? lol

Or just drive it out towards ejection port side, with a punch, and then just punch it back in again.

and you don't want to let glock repair it because?
I'm going to replace sights with fibre
get what you pay for I guess

on a serious note...can you imagine the pig pile if that had been a Ruger? LMAO
At least it's not a Taurus 709 Slim?

Wait, I have one of those too

Sounds easy enough
Buy actual handgun sights instead of placeholders. ;)
That's the plan

Don’t even try to fix the original plastic sights. Just order the new ones. Where are you located? Do you need to borrow a tool to install your new sights?

Dawson fixed sights with fiber front are great sights. I prefer the plain black rear with red fiber front. Warren also makes a set of Sevigny competition sights that are nice too. I have them both if you want to try before you buy.
