    I’m very interested in getting these, what’s your take on Ring Sights?

    They look pretty “busy” to me. Take off the back dots, and they would probably be useful, but moreso on a rifle.

    I’d rock them. I like the idea of centering the dot in the ring. I’ve shot carbines with sights like that and I enjoy them.

    I haven't seen anything from Arotek since the early 90s
    I once had a Arotek G19 with a built in laser in the front trigger guard & batteries in the opening behind the magazine..
    It was state of the art for the time..

    I honestly wouldn't get them, there are many great options that will serve you much better.

    Aperture sights found on a rifle work so well because the ring is close to the shooters eye.

    This is exactly the same reason they are terrible on a pistol.

    Snake eye sights. Doubt they will make you a better shot. Practice will.

    Instructor Zero approved!

    (Seriously though, concept has been tried many times, never took off. Reason because as above, the ring concept seems to fall apart when moved too far from the eye)

    All my Glocks are standardized on the Ameriglo Agents.

    Got my brand new gen4 Glock 31 duty gun this January. Removed the factory night sights and installed Agents right away. I already had the Ameriglos before we even got the guns.

    Hackathorn sight. Ameriglo. Half the price of the agents, about $45. Big orange front tritium, black serrated rear.

    Same. 17, 19, and 43. I prefer the U-Notch to the square.

    I actually have a G23 from them with that setup. Was given to me by a neighbor.

    I don't care for that sight setup myself.

    I too never cared for the aperture sights on a pistol but they do seem to work gr8 on an AR-15 though..

    He has some money. He owned the property and building that they rented to do their pistol modifications. They made that for him to show what they do.

    He couldn't handle the .40 recoil anymore (elderly). I did do alot of repairs on equipment for him to help him out.
