Not available for the 1911 though.
Isn't that what the Steyrs use?
Similar, but no.
Interesting but for 1911s I like Novak sights the best
I think i may have to try them out on one of my glocks
The guy that invented them is on the Steyr boards, presumably because that's where the idea came from..
Why is that?
Definitely interesting. But I think I'll stick with my Meprolight plan.
The Sevigny comp fiber optic set is on my shortlist of new sights for my 19.
I have XS Big dots on my 1911 as it sits near the bed, and if I don't get my glasses in time I can focus on the front sight cleanly. Although I am liking the Mepro's on my PM9.
Not recommended by whom?
Of the sights or the 1911?
Those Steyr-style sights are a gimmick. They are far slower and harder to find the front sight than pretty much anything else. I think a target leaf sight might even be faster.
I bought my Sig 226 with Siglites (three dots) and they worked fine. After seeing the XS sights I figured I would try them and could not be happier. They are simple to use and quick to acquire a target. Everyone who has shot my Sig has been impressed with them. But I would agree they are probably not for everyone.
The Steyr's or the knockoffs? I could find that fat front triangle on the Steyr quick as hell... as long as it was daylight
