Thak you, it is also a lot of fun to shoot! Although it is small its recoil is not different from that of a full size .357, since it is also very heavy. The only
problem is the subject of this thread!

i would concur that if your groups are consistent, and if it's just the one pistol, either it's the sights that you need to adjust to, or another suggested, the ammo. different ammo can cause it to group differently also. if it's just the one pistol, then i doubt the problem is your shooting skill.

Heavier bullets tend to hit higher. Lighter bullets tend to hit lower. A harder grip can also help lower your point of impact. Shooting revolvers is a bunch different than shooting a semiauto. A different set of gripping and trigger pull skills are used. You have been away from the revolver for a while and your muscle memory skills have gone down. Keep plugging away and practicing with both pistols and you will soon be able to use both interchangeably.

Remember that the sorter barreled handguns have a shorter sight radius. That makes sight alignment harder.

Did you buy yours new or used?

As said before, heavy bullets hit higher than lighter bullets. If the .357 was bought new, then I would check with the manufacturer (front sight is a little low, that raises the POI). If bought used, then try lighter bullets or .38 Specials. If used, someone may have worked on the front sight to get it to hit at POA for their ammo.

Looks to me like that one has a slightly thicker grip with less of a steeped angle. This means you would probably feel the same general angle in your wrist but the barrel would be angled ever so slightly upward...
