Have you tried shooting with the pistol resting on a sand bag or in a vice of some type? The new trigger may be throwing off your trigger pull and moving the barrel a bit when you fire.

Alternatively, you could just move your target to the left a little bit.

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f14/poi-correction-your-fixes-67441/ Check out the chart in that thread for possibilities; it's a new trigger to your finger. Try picking your nose after a nose job, and you might have to adjust your technique.

Sounds like the smartest course on a new pistol. Maybe they will throw you an extra mag or two for the wait.

So did you ever get this resolved? If so, what was the solution?

On a new gun, how are the mags used and abused?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
