    G26 range report with XS Big Dot sights

    I installed XS Big Dot sights on my G26 a couple weeks ago and had the chance to run 100 rounds of ammo through my G26 yesterday and could not be more please with these sights on this handgun. It took me a couple mags to get the hang of using these sights but since I am a proponent of point shooting anyway it was easy to just focus on quickly placing the big front dot on the target for fast sight acquisition. Quick hits center mass was very easy. You don't even need to worry about lining up the rear sights when shooting out to 15 yards. If your form is good its no problem at all. I have Trijicons on several other handguns but I think XS sights are the perfect sights for a compact CCW handgun.

    When I leave the home port:
    S&W 642 Airweight, Ruger SP 101, Colt Detective Spec., CZ RAMI, Kahr PM9, Kahr CW40, S&W Model 10-7, Glock 30, 19, and 26, Browning Hi Power, CZ82, Colt Commander, Dan Wesson PM7, Ruger LCP

    Thanks for sharing. I am going to put big dot sights on my G27 shortly. Can't wait to give them a try.

    Thanks for the report. I'm thinking about slapping some on my G33.

    I have the same set up on my G-26. It works great for fast CQB type shooting.

    Thanks for the report. I've been considering these sites. They appear make good sense for use on a CC pistol.

    Can you post a pic showing what you see of your sights looking at the target?

    I have Trijicons on my 27 and wonder how they compare to the XS Big Dots. Is there a big difference? I haven't seen the XS in person.

    The XS big dots appear to be brighter than the Trijicons on my G19. As far as fast target acquisition the XS sights beat the Trijicons hands down IMO. At CCW/CQC distances I think they are the better option at least for me. They are at a disadvantage for pinpoint accuracy at distances past 25 yards but thats not an issue with this G26. These are for CQC not shooting games. I think the Youtube video is a very accurate representation of the sight picture and the type of results you acheive with some practice with thses sights.
