    Bought idots, took one look at them, sent them right back. Bought idot pro's, love them. 60 year old eyes needed the extras of the pro version.

    I have I-Dot Pros, and really like 'em. I have the green front. They give the benefits of the XS Big Dots without the negatives, imho. Be safe

    The dots on the standard idots were too small for me. I wasn't really looking for night sights. The idot pro has a big honking orange circle around the tritium dot. Easy to make out, the tritium night sight feature was a nice extra. They were also cheaper than some other sights I considered, like speed sights and hex sights.

    I got the green tritium, with orange outline on the front sight. I think they offer a yellow outline too. In other threads I heard that the yellow tritium were dimmer than the green.

    For me, the idot idea works great. Muscle problems and old eyes made using the Glock stock, or 3 dot sights a PITA. Now dot over dot and I know where my round will hit. Using a gen 4 G19.
