    What are peoples opinions on these? Since i just got back into have some glocks again with the glock 45 i am looking to change off the Ameriglo sights. I don't like three dot. i normally just do all black rear and front or occasionally have white/colored front sight. i may just go do my normal set up with the all black vickers battle sights.

    It looks like those sites should have human sacrifices taking place on top of them in Central America.

    Buy a $2 black magic marker and color your rear sight you have and spend the rest on ammo!

    I hate 3 dots too , and I prefer the thinner front posts . To tell you the truth after many years trying different sights I'm coming to the conclusion that the competition shooters have long ago figured out iron sights. Duh ... I should have realized that alot sooner than I did.
    Add.
    My current favorite is a .090 front with a .110 that's on my cz s2 my glocks have the Tcaps and they work well enough but wish I could get the front sight even thinner than what the Tcaps use. Btw the Tcaps are .125" same as the haley's

    Flipping the stock rear sight around works nice.

    Ameriglo makes a set with all black rear. I got them for my 43x. They should have it for others. Hackathorns

    I share the feelings. Companies marketing products and planning on being around for a long time don't seem to revert to whimsical and fleeting marketing names the same way 8-month-make-a-buck garage vendors do.

    Um... I mean, "316h7- M0n7h - [email protected]@-8u¢k" garage vendors do...

    While they may be great sites, my first impulse is "are they even for real, and will they be here in four years?".

    My second thought was Spartan 24's (Central American Aztec temples/pyramids).

    Interesting to see. I will be curious what opinions are of those that use them.

    I don't own these but I have an opinion.

    The rear sight is slanted so you wont be able to rack the slide in an emergency.

    Edit:

    Retract that...

    The flat side can still catch on an object to rack the slide!

    Look again. They are flat on the side that counts.
