    I put a .272 rear sight on now I buying a .200 front, both from Ameriglo. I'm replacing a .215 hiviz front & factory adj. rear that I set at about .275. I was spot on at 30 feet, with 6 o,clock hold. I am not sure I will be on or will I need to use 12 o,clock hold. Any Help or suggestions, I will be grateful.

    You'll have to shoot it to know, as variances between guns and ammo will change the point of impact. I have a different height front sight one of my Gen1s than my other G17s to achieve the same point of impact. If your standard ammo isn't hitting the way you want, Dawson has a pretty cool calculator to figure out the change needed on the front sight to correct it. https://dawsonprecision.com/sight-calculator/

    One of the reasons I buy so many Dawson sights is if the point of impact isn't exactly where you want it they'll exchange the front sight at no charge. Ameriglo may offer something similar if you're not happy with the results.
