In the new issue of Gun World magazine, Duane Thomas put a XS big dot on the front and a Novak half ghost ring rear on his Glock 17.
This set up (according to Duane) offers incredible speed AND long range accuracy. He backs it up with an incredible score at a recent Washington State IDPA Championship event, with an almost perfect score on a stage with targets out to 30 and 35 yards.
This might be the answer to those that struggle with windage problems at longer ranges with the factory XS Big Dot with the shallow V-Notch rear.
Put the big dot in the big half ring and you have good windage control with easy sight aquisition.
It looks like a pretty good sight setup. Has anyone here tried it?
Does anyone know the model number of the rear half ghost ring sight that was used? The only thing I'll can find on the Novak sight is the DCR09GS.
I wrote Gunworld magazine & Novak to try and get the model number. I'll post it as soon as I get an answer.
