    Too bad it doesn't fill the whole thing up. This would drive me crazy.

    Nice looking. It would have taken me much longer than 3 hours :)

    Nice job.

    I agree,.......love the lines of the sight though, but they just do not flow together.

    I've seen smoother lines on orthopedic lift shoes.

    I've seen a couple of those sights in person.

    They are a big hunk of metal that won't break. And they are very, very ugly.

    I wonder how deep the notch is?

    I tried a Harrison Retro rear and didn't like it because the rear notch was too deep, allowing (most of) the top of the slide to get into the sight picture. Very annoying.

    personally, i'd still take adjustable sights over the Harrison.
