    Thanks for the offer Jason but i already have one :supergrin::cool:

    Has anybody tried a front sight with a 0.060 diameter fiber optic and a blade width of 0.125?
    Mas mabilis ba ang aquisition ng sights compared to .040 fiber optic ?

    inputs naman dyan :wavey:

    .040 na ang preferred fo diameter with a front sight thickness of .090 or .1. more precise than the glaring .060 fiber.

    I like the regular STi front sites. Don't know how thick they are though. I've tried the Brazos Microdot; I feel that they are too thin for me. I have a hard time with windage because my rear sight notch is too big for such a thin front site. Hinde ko din gusto yung FO, it distracts me and I feel its harder for long distance shots :) To each his own though hehe!

    .110 siya ahtsay.

    gusto ko rin yung stock front sight ng sti, i just want to experiment:supergrin:
    i'll try the .125 width na front sight with a fiber optic na .060 ng brazo.

    Curios lang kasi ako sa statement ni Eric G. below

    "So I think it's a shooter Preference.
    But if you use an Optic Front Sight, then focus on your target.
    Regular Front sight, focus on your sight. "​

    sakin simple lang, i use FO because it keeps me focused on the front sight but they say it's personal preference but then again i usually have a hard time without FO but i do replace it with a white dot or tritium...that's because i don't practice with the blank sight...it all boils down to 2 things...practice and preference. opinion lang po.:supergrin:

    Thats great advice ah from Eric G a
    I've never used FO only because tumatalsik when you least expect
    Pero parang maganda subukan

    Dati I used .95 plain lots of space between the front and rear sights
    when I switched to prod and the CZ short fat front sights , ginawa kong 6oclock ang aim , mabilis sa plato

    Now, I really dont care hehe kung sala e di sala

    The plastic front sight of my G21 fell off a few months ago and I've never had the time to comb the local gunshops for a replacement. I'd like to replace it sana with a metal one, w/ plain white dot and held in place by a screw from the inside of the slide.

    Does anyone know where I can buy one? TIA!
