Default Taurus 1911

I just got a new Taurus 1911 for my birthday. Bought myself a present. I have a couple of issues with it. First off it has Novak sights. I have never used them before. I used them like I use any other ( pumpkin on post). At 25 feet all my shot are grouped together great but they are all low by 2-3 inches. It is not just me. I have had others shoot with the same results. Sights are not adjustable. I just bought a Crimson Trace rail master for it. I am going out today to try it. My second issue is finding a holster for it. The gun has a rail and now also has the laser. Any suggestions would be great.

Have you tried White Hat Holsters? I have never used one myself but am in the process of ordering one. Several of the members here spoke very highly of them. I emailed back and forth with their customer service department and they told me if they don't stock a holster for a particular gun they will custom make one. I have been very impressed with their attention and quick responses and as I said, several mambers here spoke highly of them.

The Novak sights that come with the PT1911 are set up as combat sights and not target sights and should be sighted per sight image #3

Thank you. I will check out both White Hat and iTac. And thank you for the sighting info. This is the first understandable information I have received. The diagrams make it crystal clear.
