Default Ameriglo

I've been eying the Ameriglo Hackathorn sights for my Shield. Anybody running them and what are your thoughts?

I'm running the Ameriglo Pro iDot...1 dot front and I pick orange and 1 dot rear. I a,,really liking them. Ameriglo used Trijicon vials and the Ameriglo metal casings are top notch.

Thanks for the reply! Do you think the painted front picks up more light in the daytime than a fiber optic?

I have Ameriglo's on my carry gun. The day sight feature is not quite as bright as fiber optic, but not as fragile either.

Compared the the Truglo TFO I had on my Glock yes the Ameriglo Orange I dot is easier to see during the day. I took of the Truglo on my Glock and installed Ameriglo iDot to match my Shield.

I think I'm sold! And of course, Ameriglo is sold out. Any other online dealers? Brownells and Midway don't have them.
