Rear sight machined and painted off-center

I am the proud owner of a P380. I've had it for 2 weeks. There have been no feeding or ejection problems and it is more accurate than I would have believed. I can even rack the slide by hand. :)

Last night I noticed that the white bar on the rear sight is slightly off-center.:eek: There is a recessed divot machined into the sight that is off, so it's not just the paint.

My really high opinion of this gun has slipped a tiny bit. I'm not concerned that this will cause me to miss the BG's center of mass by a half inch. It is a matter of principle. Frankly I'm surprised that with Kahr's reputation for precision, that this could happen. Aren't the parts made by CNC?

The way I see it I have two options:

1. To live with it, since it won't affect the guns intended purpose
2. Ask Kahr for a replacement sight, but I'd have to pay for someone to install it

What would you do?

I was considering that. XS Big Dot or Trijicons?
I have not seen eather in real life, but the Trijicons have 3 glowing dots while the Big Dot only has 1 big dot. I am planing on getting the Trijicons soon.
