.17 HMR NAA Black Widow

Well, I knew sooner or later I'd end up with a .17. It's a very slightly used North American Arms Black Widow, and the dang thing shoots, like, maybe six inches high at seven yards.

Was shooting Winchester 20 grain softpoints, so I cranked the adjustable rear sight all the way down and have not noticed any change in pattern. Yes, "pattern", not "group".

Have taken the springs out of the rear sight and screwed it down as far as it'll go, but wonder if NAA just doesn't need to sell these with a taller front sight.

Not too loud, about like a .22 LR from a short barrel. I'd expected something more like a .22 magnum blast.

Does anyone else have experience with the .17 HMR in a short barrel? Maybe, in a NAA? Perhaps even a Black Widow?
