Got one with the black grips from walmart. I figured it would be barrel heavy, but was pleasantly suprized to discover it had the heft of a 10" Ruger MK II. I've shot it some at short range, I'm not so good with it yet... Well I'm out to go shoot it some more! I really like it. I think I'm going to leave it as a pistol. After a while, I'll install my flattop valve and piston.

Does it shoot high it? Seems that many have been coming from the factory needing the rear sight
lowered more than the slot will allow. Its easy enough to extend the slot with a needle file or
Dremel.
Just wondering if that has been corrected...

It shoots about 3/4"-1" high at about 10 paces, 5 pumps, 7.9g wadcutters.

Try it at longer yardage at maybe five yard increments and see if it shoots even higher
before you start modifying the rear sight if you plan on doing most of your shooting at
longer distances you may be ok. At some point the trajectory will bring it back down to
your line of sight across the sights, it might be interesting to find out where that is.

I shoot mine at about 12 to 15 yards and use the "6 O-clock" hold and hit pretty much what I aim at. Factory sights seem fine to me, but then, my 1377's not new anymore either. lol



I plink, therefore I am.
