    I recently purchased a Gen 4 19 MOS and plan to put an RMR on it. It comes with the terrible plastic sights of course, and I was wondering what type of suppressor height sights would go best with a red dot? I’m personally thinking that blacked out rear and blacked out front sight may be best so the sight picture is not cluttered by seeing a red dot and a big orange sight or similar. Just trying to get some opinions from those who regularly run this type of set up. Thanks.

    I went with Ameriglo on my RMR guns.

    These are the exact ones I was considering. Thanks.

    I just installed Dawson Precision on my G45 with Vortex Venom. I bought blacked out rear and fiber optic red on the front. Will check zero next and adjust rear if necessary. Easy install with just a little filing. Co-witness looks very good.

    Does the red fiber optic overpower the red dot? Or clutter the sight picture at all?

    I have not shot it yet but just looking through the red dot I did not feel that at all. I was planning to change the red fiber optic to green if I feel there is an issue.

    It's my opinion that if you're going to use a rds on a pistol then train to actually find and use the dot. Don't crutch finding the dot by finding your front sight.

    If you absolutely must have a backup sight then those blacked out versions are ok.

    I went with Ameriglo. RS-black & NS on the front. There is no issue with the NS interfering with the RDS "picture".

    Correct, the dot is the primary focus not the sight. My reason for having co-witness is that I do some competitive shooting and have gotten caught in a heavy rain more that once and the red dot can be tough under those circumstances. Honestly, I wish there was a way to fold down the front sight but I have never seen one for a pistol. In good weather, I have another red dot setup without steel sights - actually it is a dovetail mounted red dot plate.

    like others have mentioned, the ameriglo suppressor sights are fantastic and have held up extremely well in the year that I've had them. I dry fire a lot and I'll knock the front sight pretty hard some times if I miss the holster or when I'm training and drop it and they havent broke or budged. I got the NS front sight and just a standard black back sight.

    If you are focusing on the dot you aren't using it the way it was intended.

    Come on. I am well aware the focus is the target. The point was line with the dot not the sight.
