Does anyone have experience with these sights? Either the big dot or standard dot? I'm in the process of testing for my local PD as a reserve. And would like to add night sights to my Glock 23 which if hired, would be my duty gun. My only worry is that with the big dot would qualifying be that much harder than with regular Trijicon sights or if the standard dot would be a better choice. Thanks in advance
I have the XS big dot on my glock 17, I love them. Their are a lot of videos on you tube you can watch about them. Very easy to be accurate with IMHO.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. -Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book"
I have had XS Big Dot on my S&W BG for 2 years. I highly recommend it. And I couldn't agree more with mudpupp. If you have to draw, you'll want to find that front sight as fast as possible. The XS Big Dot is perfect for it.

Got the big dot on my glock 30. It has replaced my TFO night sights. Way easier to pick up day or night. Not much you have to "learn" though...you really just put the big dot where the threat is and pull. You will hit anything close range with the dot you don't even have to worry about seeing the back sight if you don't want to. I've practiced that at the range a lot and the xs big dot doesn't fail a close encounter. If you are trying to use it for precision target shooting then I would look elsewhere as they are not meant for that
I've decided to put Truglo TFO on my Glock 23. And then put the XS Big Dot on my xdm compact, which is what I mostly carry. I like the option of having bright green dots during the day and at night, and the TFO provides me with that.
