I finally went to JPoint Red Dot. on the G20. Open sights are pretty much out now that I am 65 with tri focals. All my guns have either scope or Red Dot.

You might check out Advantage Tactical Sights. They are highly visible, even for those of us with 'old eyes'. I don't have the link, just Google them.

Made by JP enerprises and has been available through Midway. I got mine through JP enterprises directly. Had about 6 years and no problems.

Once my eyes started going, I switched to a 10-8 rear and an XS big dot or standard dot front. I find it a very good combo. 10-8 list the appropriate rear to match with XS. I think you will actually have to call XS to order just the front.

googled 10-8 sights...I see how these would work well with xs big dots...thanks

Same problem with eyes here. Looking forward to info from this thread. A friend suggested Ghost Ring sights for me. Don't want to spend till I'm sure what will work.

I'm 57 with bi-focals mostly for reading. I have single vision shooting glasses made to see the front sight clearly,but that leaves the target blurry. I have two pistols with Trijicon RMR-adjustable LED sights with 6.5 MOA Dots. One on a FNP-45-Tactical and one on a Glock G-22.The dot sights take a little time to get use to finding the dot quickly but once you get the hang of it they are both faster an more accurate, especially at distance past 25 yards than my irons(with my eyes) and I get the benefit of still being able to read up close because I can wear my bi-focals.I use the G-22 in GSSF Unlimited division and overall I'm happy with them and they have made me shoot more accurately. Another side benefit is that on my other GSSF pistols I run Ameriglo sights with a .115 wide red fiber optic and after shooting the RMR pistols the transition back to irons is very easy as you have basically the same sight picture.

Very nice. I've been strongly thinking on these. Who did the work for you.
