    Just shot a new 995 carbine for the first time today. Indoor range, 25 yard max. Gun shot seriously left and I kept moving rear sight to the right. By the 4th mag I had it zeroed (see target below) BUT The rear sight is wayyy to the right. My guess is the front sight is off center but there doesn't seem to be any way to move it. Any suggestions? thx

    The rail that extends out to the sight is polymer.

    Polymer can easily be shaved.

    I am not advocating this approach but it is possible.

    The front sight is secured with 2 small allen head screws. There are 2 dimples in the barrel to align the front sight. If you remove the allen screws use a threadlocker. I just use fingernail polish on my front sight screws.

    Get rid of those sorry *** sights! I spent hundreds of rounds trying to sight that POS in. I ripped them off and smashed them with a hammer to feel better. Put on a red dot, and all is well in the world. I have a few friends with these and not one if them has had any luck with theses sorry *** sights. I've built 16 AR's, and used almost every sight under the sun, but never had an issue zeroing until these Hi-Point sights.

    I've hear their warranty is good. Maybe send it in and tell them to fix it?

    I put a cheap BSA red dot scope on mine and its accurate as hell. Whenever this sight breaks down Im gonna have to invest in a better one. My advice is get a scope or a red dot.

    I, pretty much took everyone's advice. I was going to email the pics to HiPoint for advice but they have no email. Then pulled out my red dot to mount it but took a shot first at loosening the front screws. Once loose, the sight will swing right or left about 1/16th of an inch without having to shave any polymer off the lower rail. Moving it just a hair makes a BIG diff. Laser sighted the barrel with a small adjustment to the left and the rear sight centered. Now it's dead on. I'm going to double check it and then locktite it.
    Thx guys--big help
