Drifting S2 rear sight
« on: April 14, 2019, 11:30:37 PM »
I've noticed shooting the S2 out about 30 yards it center groups about 4" left. I have loosened the two set screws in the rear sight and attempted drifting  with a wooden dowel and mallet. It is stubborn and did not move any. I was wondering if the rear sight has factory applied adhesive?

     Hiya razorback1 and thx much for your thread. Others might know for sure, but I believe just the dovetail cut hold it. But either part with 90 bucks to get a sight pusher,or stop by a LGS that has a smith that usually will let you use one for free while there. I franky don't like my rear sight off center axis,kinda not feng shui to me. What did your cz test target look like? Are you a lefty or righty? I've thought I had rear sight alignment issues,asked a range officer at the range,who's never shot my gun,and reassessed the matter when he leaves a tattered hole in the bully at the same distance.
     Two common reasons are when shooting right handed,squeezing to hard with your left i.e. support hand. To tight a squeeze makes the barrel shift to the left. The other is that darn trigger finger. Back to basics, using only the pad of the finger and pulling straight back, only letting up till you feel the trigger reset,and repeat. If your finger extends to far over then your finger acts like a hook causing your finger to pull the trigger to the right,sliding the barrel to the left. And hook us up with a few pics of how it went when you sort it out,please and thx. Be well.

Do yourself a favor and buy one of these. Makes drifting or changing out rear sights a breeze. I've used it multiple times on my own pistols and have helped 2 people at the range drift their sights.

If you were close I would be happy to meet you at a range nearby and help you out.

Adrian, I am right handed but these groups were fired sitting down solid rested shots, I don't feel that I introduced any torque into the shots. I'll check out the sight pushers.

There's no adhesive. Some just tend to be more tightly fit than others.

Brass, thanks for the good info. I'm sure I have access to a local sight pusher. Seems immoral to be hammering on a nice gun like a S2, probably would be ok on a Glock. ;D

Make sure to raise the screws up high enough. There is a recessed groove they sit in and could still be hitting the edge even though you loosened them.

Good point. Seems obvious but worth the mention. I've missed some real obvious things before.

This is the pusher I went with. I've used it on CZ, Springfield, FN and H&K pistols.

It works GREAT!!!!
