30-10-2010, 09:49 AM
Bought two Vikings last weekend, one for myself and other for brother. Preffered them over CZ999, Cougar & Canik Dolphin. Pleased to have made this choice.
The other day I shot both of them with Wolf and Armscor ammo to chech zero.
With Wolf they shot about 5"- 6" low and about 4" to left and with Armscor they shot alomst 9"- 12" low.
I understand that Windage can be corrected with drift but have no clue about Elevation.
Kindly guide me to this regard. Thanks.

I think this problem is related to your technique rather than gun itself. I think you are anticipating recoil and reflex wise to counter act the recoil you jerk the gun down. so you shoot low. else if you are shooting from rest than i think your gun has some serious problem with sights.

Unless the pattern of groups is seen, nothing can be said with surety. If the gun is making tight groups every time, it cant be flinching. Could you post the target pics, brother.

yah might be, difference of opinion. let us see the real result.

plz state the distance from pistol to the target.

The front sight of Viking should be a little (about1/2mm) higher than the rear sight while shooting.. if the front and rear sight are in line, it will shoot low.. thats the characteristic of all Vikings.. :)

Post the target plz if you have it but looks like you are dropping the head of the gun
probably to counter the recoil or you are having problems with sight picture and open both eyes before shooting

Try shooting the gun from a table rest and see how it shoots.

+1 aquarius . front site should be a little higher . rest as advised sir gillani if the groups are not tight check our overall technique

Thank you very much for all the advice. I will try to correct my technique and revert back if the problem still exist.
