    Thx Bob - well sounds even better. I am OK with my SIG night sights on 226 but I think I may fit some XS's to Gary's old 220.

    P95, checkl Brownells, page 298 in catalog 58.

    BHPs took some fitting, but IMO, there was extra metal left because of the huge number of BHPs. Sig 220 should be easy I think.

    Revolvers do take some fitting and I use them only on pinned front sight Smiths. If I were to put one on one of my J frame revolvers (solid front sights), I would send it out.

    Remember, this is a down and dirty short range quick pickup front sight. While one of my BHPs has the 24/7 that has a rear insert too, I am not sure it is necessary.

    It is very fast 10yards in, but I believe it is slower than regular sights at 25yards. That said, I shot a 6 shot 6" group from braced sitting with my BHP 9MM at 100yards.
    Keep the shotgun handy!!

    Thx KC - in fact I seem to not have had #58 - time to get it I think.

    Checked on line and found them anyways - I do wonder tho whether to go for big dot ("SEMI-AUTO TRITIUM BIG DOT EXPRESS SIGHT SET
    Fast Sight Pickup In Low Light ") or just the std (:SEMI-AUTO EXPRESS STANDARD TRITIUM SIGHT SET
    Fast Sight Pickup In Low Light ")

    I'm not sure if I need the size aspect of the big one tho I can see it must be that bit better for rapid aquisition.

    I'll see what other posts we get here and make a decision.

    Am thinking about sending the Taurus 415ti in to bob off the ports and add a BIG dot to the front. When Little Red Riding Hood comes home through the woods at night, she won't need the Shurefire.
