A new JPoint red-dot sight on my 32

TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club

I LOVE it! This is my first other-than-'iron' sight for a pistol, and my initial experience is VERY positive. It cost only $308, delivered, including the mount, and I installed it myself, but one needs a sight pusher for that.

Group sizes are about a third of what they were, and today I shot my 1st three bugholes at 10 yards.

The dot is PLENTY bright in the harsh desert sunlight, and the gun is still low enough to be carried in my Tommy's bellybag.

I feel your joy!!! I bought a Cmore STS red dot for my G-19 and absolutely love it. These mini red-dots really are the next generation in sights for handguns. Going to buy another for my G26 as soon as I get back to the states.

TY. One 15-minute shooting session plus a bit of the next, but only because I was turning the wrong nut to adjust it.

One uses a (supplied) hex wrench to turn (internal) nuts on the top and RH side of the sight. When initially installed, it was only about 3" and 2" off the bull at 10 yards.

Blew up some waterjugs today, again in the bright Arizona sun. The sight worked really well, settling quickly on the targetjug. Unless I jerked the trigger, and I did that sometimes, that jug exploded when the Montana Gold 124HP hit it.

Again, I'm really enjoying shooting with both eyes open and focussed on the target.

been looking at one for my 17 as well. with a reddot on the AR, i think it would make sense as far as training. i would prefer to melt it into the slide and have the buis option as well but it gets pricey.

Low prices and excellent service.

Hi!
Any Issue with loading the 124 gr HP MG bullet?, I just got some 125 gr MG from them after they said the only bullet they have for the 357 sig is their truncated 125. The photo of the 124 HP certainly looks like it would work with the straight sides.
I have been looking at the same red dot sight for my G34 ever since the article in one of the gun magazines, I think I "need" to get one now that I have seen this.

No issues. Its profile appears identical to that of an XTP124.

I load them slightly shorter than the XTPs.
