    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.

    I tried resting and free. 2 other ppl tried shooting it to. Same problem. I plan on sending it back to them and let them fix it. But return time is along time

    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?

    Yes it was fixed sent it to s&w they replaced the front sight. Upset they didn't send any thing for the inconvenience and sent me back my mags which were used and abused I see. 2 new 1s and I would of been 100% satisfied.

    My m&p sights were off from the factory. It took one bump from the smith to fix. If your sights are off from the factory I recommend just going ahead and replacing them unless they are already night sights or fiber optic.

    check the grouping first. Make sure you can get consistent group. Then focus on sight adjustment.
