S&W M&P 45 .177 Caliber BB/Pellet Airgun Pistol Good, But,There's lots of room for improvement

Got this gun today, had to oil it and work the action a bit to break it in as it was sticking. I love the rear cocking slide, but Umarex screwed up big time with the rear sight. First it's sloppy molding, has trace molding seals hanging off, "Quality Control", and the sight was set down the center which was way off from where the barrel was aligned.
I had to move the rear sight hard right to reach a soup can at 20 yards.
Oh, BTW, my standard for any BB or pellet gun is a steel soup can at 20 yards, less than that and it's crap.
I set up targets at 7,15,and 20 yards. The pistol was way off from the start, but the rear sight can be moved, so I did, but the cheap plastic molded sight stripped out real easy when I tried to tighten back the set screw. VERY DISAPPOINTED....!.
But, in the end I was successfully plinking a steel post at 7 yards, then a beer can in a tree split at 15 yards and consistently on a steel soup can at 20 yards with Crosman 7.4 gr lead wad-cutters
OK, it's accurate, and the single action trigger cocking makes all the difference because the double action is absolutely horrible.
If Umarex would change this rear sight to an easily adjustable one like on the Walther PPQ pellet gun,or a quality competition sight,,, it would be a HUGE IMPROVEMENT..!
I'm gonna sight in my UTG RED/GREEN DOT next, perhaps I'l get rifle like accuracy.
