I recently picked up a new XSE from a distributor. While the one I bought a year or so ago is a tack driver, the identical pistol (both SS) shoots VERY low. At 7 yards, I have to lift the front sight up so high that I'm looking at the base of the front sight in order to cut the black. There are no flyers. It is consistent.

I put the micrometer to both pistols and can't find any differences. Anyone have any suggestions or insight on this problem?

Thanks in advance....

I can't help you, but I'm very interested. My 38 Super LWT Commander
XSE shoots 7 inches low at 25 yards. I'm thinking of taking a crowbar
to the rear sight to raise it some.

When you measured it, you measured "everything" or just the sights. Frame and slide measurements identical? Does it look like the barrel is locking up O.K., as in no abnormal wear marks on the lugs? The front barrel bushing is 100%? More such questions, but look at everything. The 1911 is a system of parts that work together. Since you have one pistol that works and another that does not, it should not be that hard.
