    Hey guys, I just noticed that the front sight on my HK USP 45 is not centered on the slide. I bought it brand new in sealed box (before they opened it in front of me at the store) and have shot it several times. It's been a while and I have several guns, but I remember it being very accurate.

    My question is - is it normal? I assume since it shoots dead on that it was adjusted like that at the factory. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Is the rear sight fixed or adjustable?

    Nope, rear sight looks centered. Weird. Again, it shoots fine if I remember correctly. I'll hit the range today just to make sure and post an update.

    I have had a few guns over the years where either the front or rear sight is just slightly off to one side...

    I owned two P99s, a P99c and a SW99. The factory rear sight on all four were just a bit off to one side - they all were dead on accurate.

    It happens... A Ruger P95 I once owned DID have the rear sight off, and the gun did shoot 2-3 inches off to the right. But, I got that fixed.

    As long as the gun shoots where ya want it to, then don't worry about it.

    You could Call/Email HK customer service. They are great.

    If it shoots good, I guess they made an adjust.
