View Full Version : Beretta Model 86 Shooting 6 inches high

Hello All,
I just picked up a Beretta Model 86 that is shooting about 6 inches high at 50 feet with 95 grain ball ammo.

The front sight is integral to the barrel and the rear sight is fixed.

This gun groups incredibly well so I am leary about sending it back to Beretta so they can just screw it up.

I am looking for some rear sight options for the pistol. I was looking at the Brownells catalog and found some Millet adjustable rears for the 92SB, 84, and 85. I was wondering if any of you had tried to use these sights on a model 86 at all?

Quick answer - change ammo.

Yes Jim that is true. I haven't tried any of the 88 grain loads yet. I don't know if that is going to drop the groups 6 inches though.
