+1

I think that the sights designed for larger frames have tritium in both front and rear.

I'll back up some of the other responses. I have them on my Bodyguard .380. VERY quick sight acquisition. They are not as accurate at the range, because of the design. It takes a lot of concentration to get the same accuracy as the factory sights, because it's too easy to be off just a little bit with that rear sight line.

But this isn't a range gun. For a self defense gun in low light, where you'll be at relatively close distances, it's a great choice. It's frustrating at the range, but I'm keeping them on the gun. The good outweighs the bad for me.

Thanks Tom, my CZ was manufactured as a combat side arm and I bought it as a do all go everywhere get beat up personal defense weapon. Problem is that it happens to be a kick ass range gun with kick ass accuracy and part of me doesn’t want to mess with that. I will give XS a go soon.

I've installed a couple of these onto customer's pistols and they look pretty sweet. The customers love them but they do take some getting used to. XS Sights does have great customer service and are located in Texas.

Try them. If you don't like them, try something else.

I put a set on one of my carry guns, Glock 27.

You do have to get used to covering your target with the dot. Also, I've noticed that I tend to shoot high or low because of looking around the sight instead of trusting it. I have not carried it live yet. Still working out the bugs. I want total confidence when "Going Live."
