Just bought a set of Meprolight night sites and they look great but sit very high on the gun. Checked the gun at the range and found that it was shooting high with my 147 talons.
When I bought my P-99 QA my gun was shooting low, now my pistol is shooting high about three to four inches up at 15 yards. Anyone else have this problem with Meps?

Nope, Meps on my P99QA 9mm, shoot POA at 15 yards with both 124gr. and 115 gr. ammo, I don't use 147gr. so that may be the difference.

Well I finaly got my P-99 QA to shoot "point of aim" the problem is that I can't use both night sites front and rear. I had to put the white outline rear sight back on the gun with the Meps NS front sight. The Meps rear sight was way too high. How rugged are the plastic rear sights? I wish meprolight had different high adjustment sights.

You probably already know this, but as a general rule, heavier bullets normally have a higher POI than lighter bullets.  To some folks, this seems a strange and illogical concept.  I won't bore you with the physics, but I recommend that you try a few varieties of 124 gr. and 115 gr. ammunition.  If your POI doesn't lower, I'd be quite surprised.

Cured my problem, I filed down the rear sight on the meps sight and it's right on the money with the Ranger 147. I just used a touch up bluing and you can't even tell it was filed.
