Taurus 24/7

My Taurus 24/7 pro in 9mm is shooting about 1 1/2 to 2 inches lower than point of aim. I know the problem is not me. My othe thanks guns are hitting point of aim and I have put 200 rounds threw this pistol to get a feel for it. I also am experiencing a "squishy" recoil with winchester white box ammo. It's almost like the round barley throws the slide back enough to cycle. Any help work be appreciated.

Oh man....that is a lot of drop. For a round to drop that much it wold have to be at a further distance for sure.

Does it sound different...other than feel different?

At that distance the powder level in the rounds would have to be way off. should sound different... if it is the ammo and dropping 2" in 50'.

If the powder were that low in the round it would drop way more in 150 ft.

I would suggest trying different ammo see if it feels different. Ive shot a lot of white box and never had a problem. Maybe something else going on.

I was thinking the factory sights were the issue.

Might be the front sight dot. Heard somewhere that there may have been a misaligned dot on one of the Taurus models.

Try this

on heine sights the correct way to shoot them is to COMPLETELY cover the entire target/impact point, i am certainly not a fan of heine sights, but for the sake of their defense, that is how they are meant to be used.
