    I havent used specifically Trijicon, but my 1911 has the Novac dovetailed tritium sights front and rear. I dont have any pics that dont suck however.

    The sights were on the gun from the factory. I like them and havent ever felt any need to change them...

    While I like 1911's in GI and mil-spec, my eyes arent too good anymore so I prefer the 3 dot sights. The tritium works as well as traditional white 3 dots.

    My duty guns (Springfield 1911, GLOCK34, GLOCK22) sport Trijicon sights. Best out there as far as ruggedness.

    I'm a huge fan of the Truglo TFOs I have on my M&P.

    Yup, what I have currently, just old... I really like them!

    Just did some lookin around and I'll have to get replacements from Novak. Since they make the sights bases for Trijicon anyway. I just learned something! ;)

    Indeed they do. They were the only maker I could find for my Taurus PT1911.

    I guess I should justify my answer.

    During a lowlight/nolight training class my trijicon night sights worked flawlessley, the guys using fiber optic sights had trouble if there was not enough ambiant light to make them glow; they had to use their flashlight to illuminate the sights as well as the target. I was sold on the trijicons at that point.

    That's why I like the TFOs. They're the best of both worlds: tritium and fiber optics together. But that's just one man's opinion.

    I'd have to agree there Shrimp,

    I've got the standard (non-TFO) Truglo sights on my XD40SC. I love em in direct sunlight, but there's not much benefit at all in low light situations...

    XS Big Dot on a Pistol?

    I am very interested in these for my CZ SP-01.
    I am having a very hard time finding feedback so if anyone knows how they fair I would appreciate input, good or bad. They look fast !
    Don’t know about 25 to 30 yards….as it pertains to covering too much target, but look good for real pistol distances.

    I have tritium 3 dot right now and like them but am open to a better mouse trap.

    oil, I have XSBog dot sights on all my handguns. They're made by Trigicon. Haven't actually tried shooting with them at night, but in a blacked out room they are adequate. Wish they were brighter, but maybe it's just my old eyes. :roll: But the front sight makes it look like a lolipop....and I need that because I can no longer focus on pistol sights.
