Kentucky windage made no difference. Is this common with a new gun? I was advised to take it apart and clean the shit out of it before shooting it, which I did. Maybe I didn't do a good enough job of cleaning it?

At any rate, before I even try to adjust the sites, I figured I'd ask about it from the resident gun experts here on CP.
I would tell you to break it in, but every 1911 I have ever shot didn't need to.

Ammo can have a profound affect on accuracy. If you left a lot of oil in the barrel that can affect accuracy.

You might just have a shit barrel.
