You probably don't need new sights. Fix your grip.

If it has the stock +1(i.e. 6.9) in it now you could go to the +0(i.e. 6.5) like is used on the standard size Glock to bring the groups down a bit. Still, I'd triple check before I messed with the sights. Quite a few times I've gotten into a new gun and the first few round out of it the "sights were off" but it was really just me needing to get use to the new gun.

What does the instructor shoot? People not accustom to Glocks shoot a little off because they're not familiar with the grip angle and sights. Keep shooting more and adjust your grip and you'll be fine. I was shooting XDs before Glocks and my shot was off, thought I needed new sights too but it was just me needing to get used to the gun.

What distance are you shooting? Pictures of your target could help get more insight.

I thought the same until I read that you have to use a six O clock hold. So if you line up the dots like ••• the bullet should strike just above the center dot. I started shooting like that and now I'm used to it and like it because I always tend to keep my eyes on the target and from close range I can see exactly where I'm hitting as I shoot. But I still hate the glock grip angle. Sorry glock fans.

Hope that helps though. Good luck.
