XS Big Dot 24/7 sight system

  1. I find them perfect for a close range defensive handgun, which is really what a handgun is for.
    I wouldn't put them on a long range target gun but that is not what I have Glocks and 1911's for.
    Also I think it is not a good idea to think that you won't use sights in a close range fight.
    Looking at the front sight is a sure way to make that first shot count.
    I practice both point shooting and quick front sight shooting and actually sometimes miss or at least not hit where I want to hit when not using the front sight.
    Big Dots are perfect for what they were designed for.
    Close range gun fights.
    With a little practice they are capable of long range work too.
    All a matter of shooting them a lot and getting used to them.
    I've had them on several of my guns for a long time and I don't plan on changing them.

    Have you guys noticed any issues when installing the rear XS sights? Mine seem excessively loose... sight dropped into the machined groove without any filing. The stock plastic U-sights had plenty of press fit so I don't think the groove in the slide is out of spec.
     

  3. It may need to be shimmed. Others have reported having to do this with XS sights.
     
  4. This^^ except I chose the green ring. Best of both worlds, imo.
     
  5. I wish the Trijicon HD had an option where you could get just a plain white ring around the front tritium vial similar to an XS front sight. From the photos here it seems like the orange isn't very bright. Is it one of those things where the photo doesn't do it justice and you have to see it in person?

    Are the Big dot XS 24/7 made of metal or plastic? (for a Glock)

    I believe they are anodized aluminum.
