yeah, you can grab em from a lot of places.... I actually bought my Gen3 G17 brand new with those sights on it, the acquisition of targets is way faster for me with the "i" sight instead of 3 dot

I'm not a huge fan of the stock glock sights. I prefer my old XDm's 3 dot to the Glock. But I do like those i sights.

Lol I don't blame you. Just as soon as my check clears, I'm dropping $530 +tax for my 23 gen4, $110 +tax for my .357 barrel, and I guess now $80 for some sights. I may like you, but my wallet sure doesn't haha

I used to have the XS Big Dots on my G31. I took them off and replaced them with the Trijicon HDs. I then put the XS on my G33. They are ok but not great for real accuracy. They are real nice at fast targeting though.

Anyone have any experience with these sights? They look awesome, but I'm not sure how well they would conceal being as tall as they are.
I had them on the G23 Gen3 that I had before I got the Gen 4. In retrospect, I should have stripped off these sights and kept them.

Super fast acquisition, decent accuracy. Dot the "i" with the Big Dot over covering what you want to hit. For longer distances, use the "i" to lollipop the target. That's about it.

I'll probably get another set and swap them onto my carry weapon and move the Ameriglo sights to the 40/9 project.

I recently replaced my truglo tritiums with the XS big dots. I really like them a lot. Liked the truglo's as well but mounted my truglo's on a new G19.

XS seem to be easier to pick up for fast shooting, but my eyes are 50 years old. I'll be keeping them.

As far as precision shooting goes, they are accurate enough for me. I shoot for practical accuracy, not tiny groups.

The XS sights don't make any difference in concealment. They fit in any holster. They are pure fast acquistition combat sights; they are accurate enough for a fight, but if you want target accuracy, they are not the right choice.

Most people that get them love them. The rest, like me, hate them. There seems to be very little in between. I have three dot sights on all of my guns and my brain just didn't like the XS sights. I had a hard time transitioning from them back to the three dot sights, so I just switched everything to three dot. I can achieve target acquisition with them just as fast as with XS sights. My Glocks are wearing Glock factory night sights. Everything else has either standard white three dot or Meprolights.
