    i know shacklemenot has a set and recommends them but does anyone else have a set on their guns? i'm looking to replace the shitty stock sights on my g19 with a set of big dot or ameriglo operator ns.

    After trying them out during one of the TR fighting pistol classes, I'll be putting them on my P99. Just haven't got around to purchasing them yet.

    Gonna get some for my 26 this weekend. Pretty sure you can put them on yourself. No need to spend extra 30 bux to have a smight install them.

    I want some, how hard are they to install? We have no gunsmiths around here. Glock Doc is usually at the gun show selling and installing, but the next show isn't until October. :(

    If you have two thumbs and about as many brain cells, you can do it yourself.



    Ah, I see the link was already posted. :big grin:


    Yes, I like them on my carry gun. You tighten up your groups as you use them and get acclimated to the POI.

    My 1911 has a post front sight. Need to get a dovetail milled in. I probably COULD do that but I'd rather trust my carry gun to a qualified individual.

    Where are you guys buying these from? For glocks it looks like $99 is the cheapest I can find. I found a cheaper vendor, but I've never heard of them.

    God I wish I could say I have them, but sadly I don't... not yet. But that is one of my next planned purchases for my daily carry.

    $99 isn't a bad price for defensive gun sights. If you look hard enough, you'll find them online, but $99 is probably the lowest you'll find.
