P220 .22lr conversion slide sight cut info. Login/Join

I have a .22lr conversion slide for my P220, with the rear sight bottomed out, and it is still striking low compared to POA.

Need new front sight, at least .270" tall, but no taller than .290".

Dawson Precision has a FO front sight for P226 .22 classic, with the height I need. However, there is no listing for the P220 .22 conversion slide.

Are all P22x series .22lr conversions slides using the same sight cuts as the other .22lr slides?

I have read that the .22lr slides have different cut than 9/40/45 slides.

Any tips, before i order and make a mistake?

thanks in advance.

I havent had that issue on any of my multitude of conversions.

Just out of curiosity, what ammo are you using.

Do you wear peescription glasses?

Maybe I misunderstood you, but the rear sight (windage or elevation) is moved in the same direction you want the POI to move. You mention that your rear is "bottomed out", thus at the lowest POI possible.

In other words, the guns is shooting too low. The solution is to RAISE the rear sight to raise the POI. Please clarify if I misunderstood your Q.

AHHHH!

I had brain fog. Thanks!

I rushed my range experience, as I was function testing this conversion and a Marlin Model 60 for reliable ignition and ejection.

After proving to myself that those issues were fixed, I started noting accuracy issues. However, I left my reading glasses at home, and can't read anything small within 3 feet of me without them.

I didn't think the direction through [and had to borrow a screwdriver anyway].


Thanks again- I feel better.


DSgrouse- I was using Thunderbolt and Winchester M22 40gr 1250fps ammo.

I plan on keeping this set up for round nose high-velocity ammo in the 1240-1280fps range.

My SV goes into my more accurate firearms- like the 1958 High Standard 102 Trophy, with space barrel. That is a tack driver!

Any time I can make a fellow SF member feel better is a good day. Smile

Good thing you asked the forum before spending money for nothing. Good luck.
