I got together with Rich Callihan at Ameriglo to come up with what I think are the best all around pistol sights for speed and accuracy. Nothing gimmicky, just good American craftsmanship and a simple, efficient design. The best part is the price- $48. If your reading this right now though, take 25% off that! Use coupon code "defoor" upon checkout.
These sights have a .115” wide black serrated front sight, and a flat black rear with .150" notch. I think this is about as good as it gets to shoot 25 yard bulls and still be able to pick up the front post at close ranges with good speed. With this setup I routinely shoot 625 and above on the 700 Point Aggregate, and 285 and above on the Hackathorn Standards. Click the links to see videos of the sights in action.
Another thing we did with these was to make sure both the front and rear sight have nice 90 degree edges to be able to rack the slide with either hand should that be required. No ramping on these sights. They are also made of steel, so there is no need to worry about them breaking if you need to train only strong or weak. I have found that I like to us the front post more and more to rack the slide one hand only because it is easier due to there being more leverage.
Hopefully everybody digs 'em. If so, I think I could talk Rich into making them for some other pistols as well.
