Default Big Dot?

Howdy!
I was wondering if anyone had tried the Big Dot sight set. I like the idea of the tritium dot in the front sight and the tririum bar for the rear. (The older I get, the weaker my eyesight gets).

Cheers, Stevo

Default Big dot sights

Well, other than Shooter 13, I've gotten no replies to my inquiry. Sooo... I guess I'll just "wing it". I've seen these sights on web photos and various web sights; they look like what I'm looking for, so I'm going to give them a try. If they work out, I've got several handguns to put them on. (Just got a new xd45, a 5" tactical mod so I guess that's the one that'll go in first.) Will let you know how they work out for me later.
Cheers, Stevo

Hi Stevo

I have the same question. I too could really use a front sight that allows easy acquistion. I have the XDm 3.8, 9mm, full size grip. Really like the gun, but would like to enhance the front sight without adding any "mall ninja" stuff. A local shop told me that changing the front sight on the XDm is a major deal as it has to milled out for replacement? Looking at it, it appears to be dovetailed into the slide and should be able to be changed out in a normal manner by a competent smith? any thoughts or insights on this?
thanks
MrT

Default XD Sights

Check out: XD-HS2000.com
If you buy the sights from them ($120) they will install for FREE! Just send them the slide- NOT the whole weapon.
Looks like a winner to me.
XD-HS2000.com > gunsmithing services > sight installation services > xs 24/7 Big Dot

Cheers, Stevo

I to have questioned the big dot sight installation . The Springfield rep. Told me how . Just buy the right one . Taps out to the left and push in the new sight left to right. But you need a tool to push it in. The best is to factory install.

I still do not have the cash. I'm on S.S. I think they are the answer for me.
