XD Help

Got a used XD 45 about 6 months ago.

Previous owner did not shoot it much, couldn't get used to the fat grip.

I have shot it some (about 500 rounds).

Does ok at close range (15 yards or less), but is slightly low and left.
At longer range (20-25 yards) is hits 8-10 inches low and about the same distance left.
Shoots decent groups but consistently low and left. Has done this with other shooters as well.
Off a bench it also shows the same trend.

Tried to move the rear sight with a gunsmith buddy of mine, but would not move at room temp.
Guess it needed to be heated.

Any recommendations on what to do would be appreciated.

Do I need to sell it to someone with lower standards and get another 1911 to carry?

Yep send the slide to SA and have yourself some dawson adjustables put on there and let her eat!! Fat grip chit man that is as slender as it gets abviously he has'nt held a glock lately!!
all new xd owners shoot low and to the left.....Your grip needs adjustment it is purely operator......Once you learn the proper sight alignment on that beast she'll blast all put before it.....Great gun take your time so you can enjoy it.....And hell yeah we all have lower standards when it comes to a Springer....are you kidding what kinda chit is that.....
