    I installed a set of the Green/Yellow I-Dot sights on my OD G19 a couple of weeks ago and I must say they are pretty sweet, I highly suggest giving them a look.

    I didnt have anything else but the pen for perspective.


    7 Yards 15 rounds.

    very nice... i'm considering a .180 rear and .125 front with trit too... anyway you could shoot a pic of your sight picture? I'd be your best friend! :)

    Really appreciate it!

    Been reading over on the Enos forum and found a few threads about .180s being a good match for .125s as an all around close/far sight...

    But then I read about the Defoors .150 / .125 being the ideal combo...

    I suppose the trit front would need more room on a rear sight for increased accuracy though.

    I couldnt do an arms length shot because it is rather dark inside even with the blinds open, I had to use a tripod and set the gun on my desk because I couldnt hold the gun steady enough to do the exposure required to make the pics look decent.

    Great pics!! Really appreciate it!

    Looks ideal. The .125 seems to match perfectly with the .180... Bet you are making close and quick shots as easily as 25 yrd shots with that combo...

    thanks again!

    I have a set of the GL-433 on my other G19 and I like the I-Dots better I think. I am going to put a set of these I-Dots on my Gen4 G23 for sure.

    They are making the I-Dots with the Hack front now... but you would lose the .125 front... think the Hack is .140.


    Why do you think you prefer the I-dot to the Hack?

    Ameriglo,

    If you are reading- any chance in a .125 Hackathorn front?

    I just seem to shoot with the I-Dots better, the Orange on the hacks is a littler easier to pick up but the added height and the larger U shape of the rear I-Dot sight just seems to suit me better.

    That is oil on the left side of the rear sight by the way, I just noticed that it looked like rust, I just went and looked at the area in question and it wiped right off.
