Someone told me about these. I kinda like the idea and appears to be easily picked up and aligned. Anyone have personal experience with them? Guys at my lgs laughed at me when I mentioned them. But then, they can be total arrogant goobers.

Great sights. I have two sets of them on Glocks and love 'em. The owner, Don Price, is also a stand up guy.

Never heard of them but they look interesting. The concept makes sense.

I like night sights. Here are theirs:

I am intrigued by them, and might buy a set, but I've never seen them in stock on their web site.

He is also a dick for not returning phone calls or emails.

I bought a Charles Daly Highpower with these XS sights on it.

I was very skeptical at first but after running them against my other HP I am impressed for out to about 20yds.

My groups are as consistent and they are faster that the stock sights when going "full out" and I am a stickler for as much accuracy as I can get.

Bummer, my quest for the perfect sights continues. Now I know how Don Quixote felt! Sancho, onward!

Initially placed an order for front sights. After hearing some negative feedback, I was worried that rear sights might never be in stock. Attempted phone and email contact and was unsuccessful, so I canceled my order.

I have just received an email from Speed Sights. Apparently they were a victim of their own success. They are making arrangements for increased production and better customer communications. They made me an irresistible offer if I chose to re-order. I will place the order and repost when the product arrives.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I have no stake in this firm. User reviews and my own research convinced me that they offer a superior product for my needs. I have a Glock 19 which is my EDC, and do a good deal of target practice, ammo fairy willing. It's been well established that the stock Glock sites are place holders. Speed sights look like what my 60 year old eyes need.

Talked with Ed evening of 6/5, he reiterated the intent to partner with someone able to market, support, and communicate his product. Placed an order, and 2 days later they arrived by priority mail.

Easy to install, interesting that I hadn't realized the front sight diamond is larger than the rear. Holding the G 19 at arms length, the 3 sights appear similar in size and the front blends in. Will do a range report soon, give the Loctite on the front site a chance to set up. Since my muscles aren't very steady, the local CCL instructor of many years expressed an interest in sending a few down range. Since he competes quite successfully at 75 years, I'll report back.

NOTE: If you're interested in buying, ignore the "out of stock" note on the website. Try the phone, or send an email. Don says if you put "CUSTOMER SERVICE" in the subject line, it'll get rapid response. Place an order, or tell Don when he can call you. Once you get their attention, the service and product are outstanding!

Got the speed sights day after I ordered them. Installed no problem, used a sight pusher on the rear, highly recommended.

Illness has kept me from doing enough range time to give a real review. So far they seem a lot like Big dots in that when you're close, you cover the target for poa/poi. Back away and the poa/poi becomes the top of the front sight.

I've done a lot of dry firing and there's a natural draw to the correct sight picture. I've used 3 dots and the stock Glock leggos, and there's no comparison. The angles just automatically make your eyes get the correct sight picture much faster than I could with other systems. Very happy so far.

See the doc next week, hope to get the right meds so I can do a real range report. I'm very enthusiastic because getting on target was a problem for me with the 3 dots and Glock stock. The speed sights are so fast and natural, I guess accuracy is the next test.

Have shown them around the range, people consistently say if you just look at the front site, your eyes are quickly pulled to the correct 3 site view.
Shot about 300 rounds with them and have found adapting to them quite natural. I get good groups as long as my muscles hold out.
They're made of metal and feel quite indestructible. I have night sites, and there's a clear coating over them protecting them from cleaning fluids.
