Just wanted to get some feedback on what sight you guys would prefer on you pistols. I'm trying to decide between the Dawson Precision truglo sights or installing the Suresights that line-up like a triangle. I have not shot either one but was hoping to get some opinions from those who have as far as durability and target location.:confused: Thanks for any input!

I've had the sure sights and took them off after shooting a few hundred rounds.
FOR ME, I just couldn't get used to them, where they felt natural.
Great defensive sights though, if you wanna get used to them.

I use dawson sights now- plain target rear sight and fiber-optic front.

Many top level shooters use this combo.

Thanks for your comment - Dawson Precision is about 15 miles from where I live and I read & hear alot about there quality sights. I will probably go by there and have a look at my options. I also understand that even if you want a pair of suresights there is at least a 2-3 month wait as there production seems to be extremely back-logged. Dawson it is !

I liked the TFO's a lot too, but after having to replace them 3 times in 18 months, I finally gave up on them...

Well I did read up on them on here and yes sum ppl where having problems w/them. Soooooo what I did was to get sum 30 min. epoxy at pep boys mixed it up and filled the top of the tubes w/them that way. Nice and crystal clear and the will NOT COME OUT! :p It looks really good and now I dont have to worry about the tubes coming out/off ever again. I just luv the tritium and the fiber optics of these sights. Best of both worlds for me!! :cool: :twisted: :grin:

I know some had the tubes fall out.

Mine just kept going dim- the tritium was leaking out...
