Default Glock 27 point of impact

I am new to this forum and appreciate being able to join it. i recently purchased a glock 27 and if I line the sights up level i shoot really low at 10 yards. I also have a .45 Kimber that I line the front sight up even with the back sight and it hits perfectly out to 20 yards so I expected that with my Glock. At 10 yards in order to be accurate I have to place the front sight dot above the rear sight. It looks like a ball sitting on a shelf. This is my first glock so I am unfamiliar with the intricacies of the weapon. It is fixed site...so my question is....is it me? Can I purchase a taller rear sight to install?

I certainly am no handgun expert....the aiming is just different from what I have ever done with any of my weapons. I appreciate any advice or recommendations.

I am no Glock expert here, there are others on here that have Glocks and may have another solution, but if you are only doing it with the new Glock, I would think that is because the Glock trigger has a longer pull and is just different enough from the other triggers like your Kimber, with a shorter pull.

Practice dry firing the Glock more and shoot it more to get used to how the trigger feels. Don't adjust the sights or aim high to compensate. Just dry fire to get an idea of what a correct trigger break with a Glock feels like and then follow up with some good slow fire practice. Focus on a perfect trigger press, every time.

I think you will see improved results after doing this.

P.S. Mods may need to move these posts to the Handguns/Glock section.

I'm not a Glock guy either but isn't the 27 a tiny one? Perhaps they sight them in at closer than 10 yards. It's also possible it's just "off" - I had a Taurus that shot way low and I filed down the front sight...

VERY common for people to hit low with a Glock. Generally low left for right handed shooters. Try it from a solid rest to eliminate the shooter input, you will likely see a very different point of impact.

Practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.

I might suggest that you look further down into the FTF website and you will see a room for nothing but Glocks. Maybe you can find more answers there from people who own or know more about them.

The G27 doesn't allow for a full grip and has a shorter barrel than your kimber due to it's size. It is also a .40 S&W and to a 45 acp. Add in the trigger compared to your kimber I expect it shoots much differently. I doubt the G27 is expected to be used at 20 yards but with practice it should do well at 10 yards.

My Girlfriend has a G27 and shoots it well at 5-10 yards. Robo gave good advice try and shoot it from a rest to figure out if it's you or the sights on the firearm.

Your suggestions worked! I used a lot more trigger control today and was very surprised to notice how long the trigger pulll really is on the G27....at first i was hitting at the right height but to the left...then i noticed my grip on the pistol....i consciously held the pistol grip a little different and whammo....8 shots in 1 1/2" circle at 10 yds. then i went to 20 yards and rested on my tailgate and 8 shots in a 4 1/2" circle.....very different from my first day out with the baby! i will have to practice more for these changes to become "el natural" for me...but now i can shoot fine by thinking about what I am doing! Thanks for all your help and advice.....i went from disgust to feeling really great about my acquistion!
