Competition Sights

I am trying to get some help with sights on my XDm 3.8. I am planning on shooting IDPA and am interested in what competitive shooters feel are the best sights for this type of shooting.
Thanks

I'll bet most will say a black rear and fiber front, for quick sighting. I use the Dawson brand name on my XD; a plain black notched square rear, and red fiber optic front sight. It is however a personal choice. On a different gun I use TFO fiber sights, front and back.

All my comp guns have Dawson Fiber Optics. One has black rear with FO front and the other two have FO front and rear. Can't really tell much difference between black rear and FO rear. I do pick up a green front better than a red one though.

I am partial to a Dawson Fiber optic front sight with a Warren Tactical flat black rear. I've been running this on my XD 9 Service for years.

I don't shoot IDPA, but the SA Custom shop said this setup is popular for those who shoot different competitions. Black Rear, and Dawson front fiber.

Where can I find those adjustable rear sights? And which Dawson FO front matches it, to shoot same as stock?

Hi, same question as Sherpa..

Put Hi-Viz on mine front and rear, just shooting too low and like the looks of what iCreek has

Another vote for Dawson FO front and black rear. It's a very fast accurate site. I put the adjustable rear on mine and couldn't be happier. I had Springer Precision install mine along with a barsto barrel and some action and trigger work. Hands down it's my favorite pistol.
