I didn't bring a whole lot of ammo, only 1 magazine. It only took 9 rounds to zero, so with the remaining 21 rounds I set up a target at 15 yards to see how the comp would help my double taps. It did not. Before the upgrades, I could throw 2 rounds as fast as my finger could pull and they'd hit about an inch apart. Today, first shot would hit the mark with the 2nd round 3 to 4 inches low.
My questions to you, are there drills or something I can practice to speed up my the learning curve for these upgrades? Or is it simply shooting more and more and let the timing come?
Thanks in advance for the help,
What are your sights doing after your first shot now compare to previously. Do they rise as much, more, or less?
How tight are you holding the handguard? My guess would be that you used to over grip the forearm to compensate for the muzzle rise resulting from the recoil. Now that you have a comp the muzzle does not rise as much and your grip is forcing the gun to dip.
