Huge Difference for Aging Eyes
by Wild Bill
For me a very best compromise. Working towards testing for Handgun Combat Master test. I hate the Factory Sights...white-lined plastic Rear makes my eyes go right to the Rear (and then must force to the Front sight). I would use an optic, but not allowed for the test. At least Irons are the most reliable. The large Orange Front Sight, with no dots Rear gives me way better instant focus on Front. And the 3 Tritium Inserts still help for low light. Wide rear U noticeably helps for speed and field of view. Rear has serrations and is slightly angled to provide self-shadowing...both reduce glare. For CCW, in my opinion a solid Front (and Rear) sights are a must rather than light-pipes. Light pipes are brighter, but are absolutely more fragile. These sights cost a little more but are perfect for me and worth every penny. Fyi, Lenny mentions in a video that he happens to use these as his personal choice...I absolutely see why.

Without question some of the best sights Ive had on any of my handguns. The rear is subdued during the daylight hours allowing the big orange dot out front to really grab your eye, and keep it focused where it should be, on the front sight and your target. At night however, the tritium in these is some of the brightest Ive used, and Ive used many.
The rear also does indeed allow you to charge your weapon one handed should it come to that.
The machining is excellent. These sights, as mentioned before, are not precision target sights but are designed from the slide up ad COMBAT sights, and at that, they excell. The sight picture is perfect for that role, as are the colors.
These sights just work people. Worth every single cent.
Razor sharp edge on rear sight
I had these sights installed on two of my Glocks (at the same time) after hearing great things about them. After five minutes of carrying my Model 27 in an IWB holster I found the rear sight to be ridiculously sharp, even cutting into my skin. Agonizing when seated in a vehicle.
On a positive note, the build quality was excellent and the design concept and contrast are very innovative.
If you are planning on carrying a firearm in a manner where the rear sight may come in contact with your skin, avoid these sights.
amazingly easy to pickup
These are a major improvement over the stock Glock sights. They are very easy to see in the sunlight and the orange front dot is a great contrast. Easy double eye shooting. And even better in the dark. The tritium lights up very bright in the dark and make it easy to see. no need to charge them with a light source like the photo luminescent sights.
