They do make an adjustable removable fiber optic steel sight. I looked at one this afternoon. I think it was by true glow-- pro series or something like that. It locks onto the rib with set screws. All steel construction. Looks well made. About $50

I'm going to shoot it again tomorrow with the factory full if that don't fix it I'm going to look into shiming the stock to the right. If that don't work Im going to try a different choke.
Thanks for all the input guys!

I'd send the choke in and get a new one or your money back....

My gun is sighted in for Hevi 6's, and I've shot Hevi magblends with the same point of impact. I have shot some XR 5's and 6's for comparison and they both shoot low and left.

The SX3 comes from the factory with a neutral cast. If you shim it for cast off (right handed shooter) it could give you the POI you're looking for.

Well i just got through shooting her and he is what i done and have came up with! I shot it with the factory full on a 24x24 piece of card board with a white paper plate in the center! It was putting the majority of pattern to the left! (Explains why I missed so many ducks this past season!) So I dug out the box and the shims. Shimmed it to the right! Shot it again on another 24x24 piece of cardboard and it was near perfect evenly spread all over the paper. So I thought that was an easy fix! Screwed the jelly head it and shot it and its still shooting to the left! So i make a quick trip to our local gun shop buy a box of Remington 3.5 #6 come home shot it and got the same results! So im going to send the jelly head back and try an Indian creek. Thanks fo! all the inputs
