Lonewolf T.A.S. Sight?

Anyone have any experience with this sight? Likes? Dislikes?

Thanks for the heads up. Tried one of these in Europe a while back and liked it. Gonna give it a try on one of my Glocks. Here's a little more information on it:

These are either a real innovation... or just another gimmick... I won't drop $90 to find out just yet but the concept is interesting. If you see the dot you're aligned, bang, 1 step like a red dot optic... does maybe sound easier than aligning a front blade and rear notch, who knows?

Well if someone IS willing to be the guinny pig I can get that item shipped to your door for $85 even if you pay via paypal gift.

I'm a lone wolf dealer and they'd ship it direct to you.

I think I would be willing to be a guinee pig and post a complete review. How do I go about getting one for $85 delivered?

Just ordered one for a customer. Hopefully they'll chime in here after they get it to offer a review.

Ordered some from Zack at American Gun Works (he is a very patient man) when I get them I'll put them on a G17 and shoot a few targets and then on pin night at the range. I like to mess with new stuff and I'm curious as to what the hardcore guys will say. I will let you know what I think and i'm not one of those guys who thinks just cuz I have them thier great, it will be a honest review.
Any GSSF guys out there think the will be legal?

It reminds me of the sights on the ASP pistol (modified S&W). They seem fast but I wonder if they are accurate out to ranges of 25+ meters. There is always a trade off.

I'm thinking about getting a set of these too.

That's a lot of sight hanging on there with a minimal mount. I believe their excessive length will be a potential problem. From where the base is located, in relation to the front of the tubes, there's a lot of leverage for, breaking, bending, or snapping off.

I'll pass.

I tagged this one. I'm in need of night sights. I'd like to see if rustynail's review turns out positive. I'm skeptic on these, but I'm anxious to hear someone's hands-on opinions. I want them to be as great as they sound. I just worried that if I practices with these too much, I'd lose my regular sight shooting ability. But if they work, if they're fast, if they're reasonably accurate at distance and if they're sturdy...I may get a set myself.

T.s.a sights review

OK guys, put the T.S.A. sights on my g22 with a LW 9mm barrel and shot about 200 rounds. really wanted to like them but just going have to say no. [O HELL NO]
Positives are few, low profile, easy installation.
Negatives----- Main one for me is the dot is not bright enough and very hard to see. On the TSA videos the dot looks really bright and easy to see.
The claim about being faster on target was not the case for me, i had to consentrate on finding the dot and then find the target.
The idea of using the rear sight only with the dot sounded possible to me because I have a c-more dot and thougt it would be a similar look, not so, once I found the dot not having a front sight reference point you can sill angle the front of the gun off target slightly so the further the target the further off target.
The sight shot loose in about every 25 rounds, lock tight wouid be a must but the installtion instructions don't suggest any but they do tell you to check them after shooting.
I doubt these will be available this time next year. JMO

If anyone would like to try them send me a PM.
