I hear great things about them, and some amazing custom's ive seen have them. I don't know anyone personally who runs them so i can't try before i buy. A Springfield that ive been carrying more often lately has black/black's and I was thinking of using some XS Big Dots but im thinking i may try the Gold Bead sights for a change. I hear the gold reflects TONS of light and i like the fact that its not so common. overall its just one of those "WHy Not" decisions. Does anyone have a recommendation on brand and style? I can't remember brand but there was one i saw where it was just a gold stripe and not a dot/bead, how well would something like that work? Thanks!
