    I like XS they took the idea of the sight from a hunting rifle that's designed to line up quickest for hunting deadly game that could be hunting you

    I've been considering the XS big dot. Could you post a review?

    The only reason I don't like the XS sights is because the back sight does not have a notch, but a curve to it. It isn't very good for any kind of accuracy. If you want something that lines up just as quick but can also be accurate, check out the Ameriglo I Dot Pro sights. They use Trijicon inserts for the tritium portion of the sight.

    Iv tried those have them on my G17 but I really like the xs iv tested them at the range there about as accurate as the shooter and most gun altercations happen within 3feet of each other that few seconds could make the difference I'm not saying there the best for far distance but for self defense I trust them most

    I don't use ether one, but if I had to pick I would go with the Trijicon. I refuse to accept speed over accuracy with the Big Dots. It don't matter how fast you pull the trigger if you can't hit what your shooting at. I guess if you don't need to hit anything over 3 yards away then the Big Dots would be OK. Hopefully you won't have to engage anything at 7 yards, cause you would be in trouble with Big Dots. Then again I never did drink the James Yeager Koolaid.

    I have the XS Big Dots on one of my Glock 19's. They are very accurate, and have fast target acquisition from 10 to 30'. They are made for true self defense. No Glock sniping with the big dots.

    Oh I have tried them. I don't post opinions that I don't have first hand knowledge about.

    I missed the versus in the tittle of the thread. I like my XS Big Dots, but I would vote for Trijicon HD sights. They are a better all around sight IMHO.

    I have the xs big dots and can hit 2 litters and 7 out of 10 clay pigeons at 50 yards with my Glock 19 I think they are great sights just takes practice just like anything else

    I would like to know who is using sights when the threat is coming from within 7 yards? You should be in point-and-shoot mode...defensive shooting! Probably shooting from the low or high ready position.
