    Night Sights for XD9

    Hi Y'all,

    I just bought a XD9 this week and I'm wanting to put night sights on it. I'm leaning towards PT night sights (had this type before) and was wondering if anyone had any better suggestions. Any help would appreciated. :)

    My husband and I have both ordered XS sights.

    XSsights


    The dot over the line helps with fast sight acquisition and in the night, again, with the line and the dash it's very clear which sight is which.

    I have straight eights on my other gun, and even those might be traded for another pair of these.

    +1 on the XS sights, for the very reasons Lima mentioned.

    Question XSsights

    Lima, are you and your husband getting the big dot or the standard?

    Big dot for now.. I'll see how I like them. I might get regular for my other 1911 and see which I like best.

    All I know is that when I practice drawing I want that front sight to be the first thing my eye picks up and right now, it's just not happening. If I spend even a quarter of a second trying to find that front sight that's too long.

    I would like the big dot as well, I am just worried about the front sight catching my holster or clothing as I draw.

    The only time I ever had a front sight hang up was in one of those holsters where the muzzle extends past the bottom of the holster and that was with a regular size front sight. I got rid of that holster real fast.

    All of my other holsters provide plenty of room for the front sight and clothing shouldn't be an issue.

    I'll probably post a "product report" once I have them on the gun and can try them a few times. I'll pay special attention to how it draws and sight acquisition.

    They should be in my mailbox when I get home tonight, at which point I'm immediately taking them up to the gun shop I work at, getting them installed and going to the range... so HOPEFULLY that range report will come tonight or tomorrow morning sometime!

    I've got a set of Tru-glo TFO night sights sitting in the drawer waiting for the G19 to come home. Tritium for night shooting and fiber optics for daylight ... great combo for all around shooting.

    Ze,

    It is like Christmas to me . After getting injured on the job, I haven't been able to shoot for almost 2 yrs and during that time, I had to sell most of my guns just to stay above water. Now after the doc turned me loose, I'm able to start replacing them and get back to shooting again . Didn't realize just how much I missed shooting. I'm going for my CCW class this month, so I'm trying to get my equipment lined up for that. So, bear with me if I ask too many questions...lol I appreciate all the help and info I can get.

    Eric

    ncffp163,

    Everyone here seems very friendly and glad to help, I don't think you will have any troubles. Glad you are able to get back to shooting. I took my Texas CHL with a XD9 Service and my wife took hers with a XD9 SubCompact and everything went perfect. I was a little shaky due to normally shooting a 1911, but the gun shot everytime I pulled the trigger and hit right where I was aiming at, albeit sometimes I was aiming just a little southwest of center.
