    I was having trouble picking up the sights on my Glock 22. About ten minutes with a rattail file gave me this. No change in point of impact or group size, and best of all it's free! My 65 year old eyes can really pick these up now.

    I'm impressed! Looks to be what I need to do. I think I saw somewhere that Novack sells a sight like this for those of us with the more "mature" eyes. What's the spread measurement?

    1/4" diameter file. If you're asking about group size, I fired ten rounds at a target yesterday, and 6 of the ten could be covered with a quarter. I was pretty close, 7-8 yards, but it works for me. If you bugger up your sight, you can buy a replacement for $5.00 or so.

    Good luck!

    Glad it worked out for you.
